Week of October 22: North Jetty Open – Snook, Redfish and Big Spanish Mackerels Being Caught

Walked the North Jetty this morning with a strong east wind, rough surf, and a good number of anglers out despite the reported presence of red tide.  Several regulars reported a good bite this morning, and our friend Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle has been seeing a good amount of Snook, Redfish, Big Spanish Mackerels and Ladyfish.

NOAA expects changing winds all week, between 5-10 knots, with seas between 3-4 feet until Friday.  On Friday, southeast winds move to 15 knots with seas of 4-5 feet anticipated.  Chance of showers grows greater towards the end of the week into Thursday and Friday.  Temperatures look glorious – mid 80s all week!

Meet Manly Chow, our angler of the week.  Thanks for sending in this pic with your story!  He caught this 35-inch Snook at 7pm at the Inlet in late September, and released him after a quick photo.

Catch and release is important in preserving our fisheries for the future.  Learn the proper techniques and follow the guidelines (click here) suggested by the National Park Service.
