Conditions have calmed down significantly. Winds are blowing out of the North at 1 mph, gusting to 2 and there is a light chop on the water. There are no NOAA advisories but we have a chance of showers and thunderstorms after 1:00 p.m.

The bite is getting better by the day. The Snapper bite has improved and a few real nice Cubera’s were landed this week. Jacks and Ladyfish have been active, along with C/R Snook. Snook season opens on Friday, September 1st. Be sure you have an up to date fishing license with a Snook stamp if you are lucky enough to land one in the slot and plan to keep it.

Florida Today sportswriter Ed Killer’s sources tell him that the bite in the Indian River Lagoon is steadily picking up. Larger schools of mullet are being pursued by Jacks, Snook, Tarpon and Trout near the spoil islands. Reds are active along the mangroves.

SISP Ranger Ed Perry sent us the turtle nest numbers through August 24th. The nest numbers are just within the 3 mile boundary of the Sebastian Inlet State Park. So far, there have been 1,487 nests! Thank you Ranger Perry.
