Sabastian Inlet Report

Sabastian Inlet Report 1Snook season is in full swing, but anglers at Sebastian Inlet have noticed a decrease in activity. However, they have reported an increase in Monster Bluefish catches, with some weighing between 8 and 12 pounds. These fish have been eagerly biting on various bait options, making for an exciting challenge on the water.

The North Jetty is currently experiencing a three-week streak of Black Drum sightings, with the outgoing tide being the key factor in attracting these fish. Anglers have reported success in catching Spanish mackerel at the pier’s tip during incoming tides, using live or dead shrimp as bait. However, fishing at the South Jetty has been less successful due to murkier waters caused by recent weather conditions. The high winds have stirred up the waters, reducing visibility but some fish are still biting.

Fishing enthusiasts in Sebastian, Florida can look forward to improved conditions in the coming days. Warmer temperatures and diminishing winds are expected to create optimal fishing conditions from Thursday through Sunday this week. However, it is important to note that high wind speeds, reaching gusts of 25 to 30 mph, are predicted for Monday. Boaters should exercise caution as a small craft advisory will be in effect until Thursday evening, making for challenging conditions on the water until Friday. The rough seas, currently at 12 to 14 feet on Wednesday, are expected to calm down to 7 to 9 feet by Thursday and further reduce to 4 to 6 feet by Friday. Wind speeds will also moderate heading into the weekend, with speeds of only 5 to 10 knots projected.
