10-23-17 Monday: Snook, Reds, Spanish Mackerel, Jacks, Flounder and Snapper

Winds are blowing out of the Southeast at 18 mph, gusting to 22 and conditions are rough. We have a chance of showers and thunderstorms after noon today. NOAA is calling for small craft to exercise caution.

Although conditions were less than desirable over the weekend, a lot of fish were landed according to Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. In spite of the wind and waves crashing over the jetty at times, Snook, Reds, Spanish Mackerel, big Jacks, a few Flounder and large Snapper were landed. Thanks Tommy!

Our angler of the day is Nelson Osario of Kissimmee. Nelson landed this 37″ C/R Snook prior to Hurricane Irma. Nelson was fishing from the north jetty using live finger mullet. The Snook was released unharmed right after the photo. Nice catch Nelson!
