Sebastian Inlet Report
06-09-17 FRIDAY: TGIF!
After a wet, soggy week the sun is shining at the inlet this morning! Winds are blowing out of the Northwest at 7 mph, gusting to 8 and there is a moderate chop on the water. We have a slight chance of showers this afternoon, a chance of showers and thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon and chances of showers are good all day Sunday. There are no NOAA advisories this morning. Always check the NOAA forecast prior to boating.
Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop confirmed the slow bite but is holding out hope for the weekend! Spanish Mackerel have been racing around the inlet, a few Bonito and Jacks are active as well. Some Whiting, Croakers and Jacks have been cruising the troughs along the beaches.
We received an update from inlet regular Charlie Achinelli of Melbourne who landed his first Mangrove Snapper of the season! Charlie noted that they were at least a week earlier last year.
