Sebastian Inlet Report
10-10-17 TUESDAY: SNOOK, REDS, MACKEREL, JACKS, LADYFISH, SHARKS AND TARPON
We have a beautiful day at the inlet, a little windy but that is helping keep the anglers cool. Winds are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 14 mph, gusting to 16 and there is a moderate chop on the water. Winds are forecasted to increase this afternoon. There are no NOAA advisories this morning but there is slight chance of rain this afternoon.
All of the windy, rainy weather hasn't run off the mullet, they are still active around the inlet. Reds, Snook, a few Mackerel, Jacks. Tarpon, Sharks and Ladyfish have been giving the inlet anglers a work out. Get out and wet a line!
We received an update from Meir Geonoune of Deerfield Beach who made it up to fish the inlet with his sons Leore and Eytan on Saturday. Leore and Eytan both landed a slot Snook off the north jetty using live mullet. They landed a handful of Spanish Mackerel and lots of Jacks and Ladyfish. Meir said mullet were everywhere for anyone needing bait and he witnessed at least a half dozen slot Redfish coming over the rails. They can't wait to get back up to fish the inlet again! Thanks Meir, congratulations Leore and Eytan, nice catches!
Park news: October 14th, from 1:00 - 3:15 p.m. SISP will hold a surf fishing class designed to introduce anglers to the basics of surf fishing. Discussions center on the equipment needed to enjoy a productive surf fishing day at the beach. Topics include rod and reel selection, standard pompano rig, choosing bait and more. Anglers should bring a pen/pencil and something to write on. Meet at the Fishing Museum on the south side of the Park.
