Sebastian Inlet Report
Winds are blowing out of the Southwest at 4 mph, gusting to 7 and there is a light to moderate chop on the water. There are no NOAA advisories this morning but we have a chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms.
It's been hot, muggy and at times buggy on the jetties. Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reports a few keeper Mangrove Snapper, Jacks and Blue Runners have been coming over the rails of the jetties and a surprise of a few good sized Margate in the 3 - 4 lb. range. The bait situation is sketchy, a few mojarra, greenies and finger mullet but he schools are wide spread.
Our anglers today are the Noel family of Melbourne. Dad, Allan fished the south jetty early morning when he landed the huge C/R Snook in our first photo while free lining mojarra at the onset of outgoing tide. The big Snook was released unharmed right after the photo. Allan landed a smaller Snook and a Jack before this big guy and reported some Mangrove Snapper being landed from the south catwalk on the incoming. Allan returned in the evening with is twin sons, Nick and Chris. They fished the south side on the evening tide change and landed Jacks and Ladyfish. Photo two is of Chris with a large Ladyfish he landed from the south jetty. Photo three is of Nick with a large Ladyfish he landed as well.
