Sebastian Inlet Report
10-12-17 THURSDAY: THE BITE IS HOT!
We have overcast skies and rough conditions at the inlet this morning. Winds are blowing out of the Northeast at 20 mph, gusting to 26 and the water is murky and choppy. Chances of rain and showers will increase and building seas will produce poor to hazardous boating conditions through late week. NOAA has a small craft advisory in effect through Friday afternoon. Always check the NOAA forecast prior to boating.
We received an update from Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop who reports a fantastic bite right now. Snook and Reds are hitting all over, in the surf, from the jetties, rocks and shoreline. Jacks in the 10 - 20 lb. range are chasing schools of mullet and there are some Spanish Mackerel biting as well. We are seeing quite a few anglers lined up along the beaches trying their luck, get out and wet a line. Thanks Tommy!
Our angler of the day is Bob Green of Vero Beach. Bob is hiding behind a beautiful Cubera Snapper he landed off the north jetty on Monday. Bob also landed a slot Redfish!
