Sebastian Inlet Report
10-25-17 WEDNESDAY: REDS, BLACK DRUM, SNOOK, JACKS AND CATFISH
We have a touch of fall in the air this morning, what a wonderful change! It's a little gusty out on the beaches and jetties. Winds are blowing out of the North-Northwest at 16 mph, gusting to 26 and the water is choppy. Boating conditions are poor to hazardous and NOAA has issued a small craft advisory through early Thursday morning. Always check the NOAA forecast prior to boating and keep in mind that the outgoing tides are particularly treacherous now because the rivers and lagoon are so full.
We received an update from Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach who fished the north jetty yesterday. Mike reported a slow day overall but a few choice fish were landed. Mike's neighbor Bob Green landed a 29" slot Snook on a live pinfish and a couple of Reds and Black Drum came over the rails while he was there. A lot of Catfish were landed which is not unusual for the dirty water conditions we are seeing now.
Our first photo today features Kelsey Hamel of Walnut Grove, GA. Kelsey was fishing the north beach when he landed his first Snook! Kelsey was using a Montauk darter lure to catch this Snook's attention.
