Week of September 10: Snook, Snapper and Ladyfish

Janet at the Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle reports fishing has been great with lots of snook and snapper, and some ladyfish too, but use caution as Hurricane Florence continues to build in Atlantic waters.  NOAA expects a moderate east swell affecting Atlantic waters will increase notably Wednesday and Thursday before gradually subsiding later in the week.  Seas building to 5 to 7 feet on Wednesday, peaking at 9 feet Wednesday night, and topping out at 7-10 feet on Thursday.

*IMPORTANT NOTICE:  To ensure public safety,  Sebastian Inlet State Park will be closing the North Pier/Jetty at 6PM on Wednesday, September 12, and it will re-open on Thursday, September 13 at 3PM after it has been inspected and deemed safe.  This closure is due to forecast large wave heights.

A big thank you to our angler of the week for submitting this photo!    Felix Quiles of Tampa came to visit the Sebastian Inlet State Park last weekend and caught this beautiful Red off the North Jetty.  Nice job, Felix!

If you have a high quality photo, use the contact form to send in your picture with details and we’ll share it.  Photos on this site work best if the person is centered in the picture with his or her catch, leave room on the sides, top and bottom.  Have fun and be careful out there!
