Week of August 10: Mangrove Snapper are running again
It’s a gorgeous day at the inlet, on the hot side at 84.8 degrees right now, but beautiful…Tommy tells us. Mangrove Snapper are running again and anglers are getting hits all over the inlet. Try fishing from the jetties, catwalks, shorelines, cove and Tdock. We hear they were biting really good early this morning on low tide.
There are also some Spanish Mackerel, Jacks and Blue Runners around. Your best bet is on the North and South jetties. Use your little spoons, jigs and Gotcha lures to target Spanish Mackerel. Live shrimp and spoons for Jacks, and pretty much any smaller bait or lure to target Blue Runners.
Tommy at Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle tells us he has even seen a few Margates and Flounder anglers have caught in the last few days. Best bet is West of the bridge to reel in Flounder. For the Margates use frozen or live shrimp, and they’ll be mainly off the jetties or under the bridge catwalks. Go see Tommy and he’ll get you set up with all the bait you’ll need and give you an update on the latest action.
Today, we’re using a throwback as our featured angler of the week. Aldo Rodriguez caught this Mangrove Snapper in the summer of 2018 on the North Jetty. If you want to be featured as our angler of the week, use the Contact Form to send us the details of your catch with photos (horizontal and vertical, please). We try to use every photo submitted.
Thanks for your patience last week as we repaired the Sebastian Inlet District webcam with real-time weather, tide charts and more. It is up and running for your use. Make it a great week!
