Lousy fishing but conditions are expected to improve
“Good morning, Sebastian Inlet fishing fans. I hope you all had a great weekend. The report for this week is not a good one, due to the bad weather all last week. Fishing at the inlet was a disaster. The winds and the wave action last week made it treacherous to fish either jetty and the rock shoreline on the north side. The water looked like chocolate milk everywhere! Over the weekend, the winds and the seas calmed down some, but the water is still very dirty, both tides, both sides. It's going to take a few days of tide changes to clean it up any. About the only thing I saw being caught anywhere were the pesky catfish and puffers that love this kind of dirty water! A few small jack crevalle were being caught as well.
Conditions should improve, according to the coastal surf reports I monitor, with winds being around 10 to 15 mph all week, but shifting all around. Hopefully, the water will clear up. The water temperatures are good for the fishing along the coast at 72 to 74 degrees, but it needs to clean back up. I don't like doing these kinds of reports,
