04-25-17 TUESDAY: BLUES, WHITING, SNOOK AND A STRAGGLER POMPANO

We have been having difficulty with our web site inquiry system, we are addressing the issue. Thank you for your patience.

Our wind gauge is not functioning properly, we are addressing the matter.

Winds are blowing out of the West at 12 mph and there is a moderate chop on the water. Winds are predicted to shift to the Southeast this afternoon. NOAA is calling for small craft to exercise caution.

Sarah Sams at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reports that big Blues are still active. There have also been a smattering of good sized Whiting, a few short Snook and one Pompano this morning. Get out and enjoy this beautiful day!

Our angler of the day is Glen Rootsey of Melbourne. Glen fished the north beach last weekend when he landed the 22" Bluefish in our photo. He was using cut bait that he landed cast netting. He reported that the only other thing being landed from the beach that day were Blues. He took the fish home and he and his sons had a nice meal! Nice catch Glen!

BOATERS: Please do not anchor or hover with a GPS in the channel or in the inlet east of the bridge, it impedes navigation.

Jetty Anglers: Boaters underway have the right of way; bring in your lines when boats are navigating the inlet.

04-21-17 FRIDAY: TGIF!

We have been having difficulty with our web site inquiry system, we are addressing the issue. Thank you for your patience.

Winds are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 9 mph, gusting to 14 and there is a light chop on the water. Seas have smoothed out some and the weekend forecast looks a little better for our boaters with larger vessels. Blues have been the most active species that have been landed from the jetties. Get out and wet a line this weekend.

Our first photo today is David Rathburn of Massachusetts . David and his brothers make several trips a year to visit their mother in Sebastian and always fit in a little fishing time while they are here. This time around the men landed some big, beautiful Blues from the south jetty. They also had a chance to do a little fresh water fishing in Lake Butler and landed some real nice Bass.

Photo one is of Dave with a couple of large Blues. Although we normally don't post photos that aren't taken at the inlet, we are making an exception for photo two which features Dave and his brother Wayne with those beautiful Bass. Very nice gentlemen!

Have a great weekend and be sure to send in your fishing updates and photos!

04-20-17 THURSDAY: FISHING IS SLOW

Winds are blowing out of the Northeast at 11 mph, gusting to 17 and there is a moderate chop on the water. Although there are no NOAA advisories, with 4 - 5' seas and a wave interval of 5 seconds, we recommend using caution if boating in the bumpy conditions today.

Fishing is slow but we had a couple of mermaids wash up on the beach today!

04-19-17 WEDNESDAY: BLUES, JACKS AND WHITING

We have been having some difficulty with our web site inquiry system, we are addressing the issue. Thank you for your patience.

The winds are back. This morning winds are blowing out of the East-Northeast at 12 mph, gusting to 15 and the water is choppy. There are no NOAA advisories this morning but we advise using caution with the choppy conditions.

Blues and Jacks are somewhat active and we had a few Whiting that were landed in the surf yesterday. Get out and wet a line!

Today's photo is one from our archives and features Jon Jeffers with a couple of nice Sheepshead he landed off the south catwalk a while back.

04-18-17 TUESDAY: BLUES AND A FEW SNOOK

We have a lovely morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the East-Southeast at 1 mph, gusting to 3 and there is a moderate chop on the water. We have no NOAA advisories this morning but winds are predicted to pick up a little this afternoon.

Sarah Sams at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reports a slow bite this morning. The water has a lot of seaweed that is hampering the angler's efforts. Anglers coming into the shop reported that the night bite was a little more productive. Blues have been the most active species, day or night.

Our photo today is courtesy of Erik Jacobsen. The beautiful, 41" C/R Snook in our photo was landed by Mark Jacobsen who was casting large plugs near the Sebastian River bridge on April 13th. The duo were fishing aboard "The Seaweed" that evening. The Snook was released unharmed right after the photo. Beautiful catch Mark!

04-17-17 MONDAY: BLUES ARE BACK!

Winds have calmed down after a beautiful but blustery weekend. Southeast winds are moving at 1 mph and the water is calm. There are no NOAA advisories but we do have a slight chance of showers this afternoon.

Fishing on Friday was productive according to Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. Conditions on Saturday and Sunday were very windy and messy and the bite slowed. This morning the Bluefish are back and biting! A smattering of silver mullet are in the water but not as many as usual for this time of year. Jacks, Snook, big Reds, a few Sheepshead and Spanish Mackerel have been in the mix as well.

Our angler of the day is Charlie Achinelli of Melbourne. Charlie landed this big, 12 lb. Bluefish a couple of weeks ago. Nice catch Charlie!
