August Fishing Report
Winds are blowing out of the West at 2 mph, gusting to 4 and there is a light chop on the water. There are no NOAA advisories this morning but we have a chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms.
There’s just not much to report on the fishing front. A few Mangrove Snapper, Blue Runners, Jacks, Margate and C/R Snook are being landed in low numbers. SISP Ranger Ed Perry sent us the turtle nest numbers through August 10th and it’s another great year of nesting at the Sebastian Inlet State Park. The 1,325 nests are within the three-mile boundary of the Park! Thank you, Ranger Perry.
Send in your photos and fishing updates, we need them during this slow summertime bite.
August 19th from 1:00 – 3:15 at the SISP Fishing Museum – Mark your calendars for a two-hour workshop that introduces anglers to the art of Surf Fishing for Snook. A discussion will center on several tactics for catching snook in the surf with live bait and lures. Also included will be information on rods/reels, rigging hard, soft plastic lures and live baiting options. Anglers should bring a pen/pencil and something to write on. Snook season opens September 1st.
