Week of June 10: Upwelling has slowed fishing at the Inlet

We are experiencing an upwelling, so the water temperature has dropped and fishing has slowed.  Sarah tells us there are a ton of Glass Minnows and Greenies in the water so Spanish Mackerel can be found.  Anglers are also bringing in Blue Runners (aka, blue-striped Jack), and some Snapper.  A few Redfish are still biting on the outgoing tide, and Sarah tells us folks have been catching Bonita off the North Jetty.  A fun fish to catch, they’re biting on live shrimp.

Remember Snook season has closed, check with FWC for current rules and regulations here.  Help us reduce litter and please dispose of your fishing line in the appropriate receptacles provided by the State Park!

NOAA is calling for South winds almost all week, topping out at 10 knots and seas pretty calm at 1-2 feet. There’s a good chance of thunderstorms all week and we know we don’t have to tell you, summer is here…hot, hot, hot!

Our angler of the week this week is 6-year old Shelby, sent in by Sarah from Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle.  Shelby can name ALL his fish and knows ALL the FWC size limits!  Can you do that?  You can check Shelby out on YouTube.  We hear he has quite the following.  Way to go landing this Pompano, Shelby!

Send us your pics!  We need photos and stories to include in upcoming fishing reports.  If you want to be featured with your catch, send in a picture and the details of your fishing trip to the inlet by using the Contact Form on our website.  Pictures work best horizontal and if you center the person with their catch, leaving room on the sides. We try to publish every one we receive.
