Sebastian Inlet Report
07-21-17 FRIDAY: TGIF!
We have light westerly winds this morning that are predicted to increase and shift onshore in the afternoon. There is a light chop on the water. Boating conditions are favorable through the weekend but we have chances of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoons.
These hot, sticky summer days create challenging fishing conditions. Get out early in the mornings, late afternoons or evenings and avoid the heat of the day. The fish aren't very cooperative during the hot afternoons unless you are going offshore. Trying casting under overhanging trees, under docks and bridges where you may find Mangrove Snapper, Jacks, C/R Snook and Reds hiding. Our reports from offshore are good for Snapper, Bass, Triggerfish and Dolphin.
Our angler of the day is Marco Gonzalez of Fort Meyers. Marco is quite an accomplished angler at 11 years old. His favorite place to fish is the Sebastian Inlet and he was there when he tried his luck on the south side T-Dock. First Marco netted his own mojarra then went to work on landing some fish. He wasn't disappointed in the large Spanish Mackerel he landed shortly after he began.
