Sebastian Inlet Report
08-07-17 MONDAY: SLOW BITE
We have a little wind that is helping with the heat out on the jetties. Winds are blowing out of the Southeast at 8 mph, gusting to six and there is a moderate chop on the water. There are no NOAA advisories this morning but there is a slight possibility of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening hours.
There just isn't a lot to report at this time, the bite remains slow which is not unusual for summer. Tommy Turwoski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reported that a few Mangrove Snapper and Jacks were biting this morning, the emphasis being on few. Over the weekend some Blue Runners and Mackerel joined the mix but again, in very small numbers. C/R Snook are active but we implore you to use extra caution when handling the species. If you need a net to pull it up onto the north jetty, use a net to lower it back into the water to avoid harm. The bait situation is sketchy, greenies are wide spread but there are a few finger mullet in the water.
