From Henry & Fred @ Snook-Nook - Jensen Beach

 A little rain, a little wind, a change of temps and all you had to do was wait twenty minutes and it would change.  It
has been one of those weeks with a mix of all but that did not stop the fish.   Over cast mornings made for excellent  river
fishing, plenty of Trout eating top water, that Mirrolure  16m has been the one.  We are all guilty of have to try and the cool
part is it is working and yes the Reds are blasting it out of the water and yes I still can  not catch catch one on a top water.
We have had reports of fish from the Sail fish flats to the Power Plant with enough other fish to keep you busy.  Blues, Jacks and
Lady Fish enough that you will change locations.  A few anglers were fishing that west wide and doing real well but the wind
would have me on the move and what can I say I am old.   A few Pompano off that east bridge, no particular time, just had to
be there.  Snapper from the bridges has been excellent  with plenty of Blues to keep you busy and the Snook for the late night
angler, busy.  Snook in the dark hours, it seems it it moves they will pick it up. Top water and sinking all are getting attention,
watch those slots and they will feed face into the current.
         When looking at the surf I just was not sure, look strong but I  was  wrong.  Many anglers coming in to tell me about
the fish.   Blues to four pounds  and the cool part of it they were there most of the day.  
Big Jacks, these fish will test your
ability and more big Whiting than you can count.  Out Blues make excellent table fare no mater what you have been told give
them a try.  Whiting need no help, hot of cold  make any dish perfect. Then there were a few pompano and they were big Pompano,
again no special time but worth the wait.  If you have not  tried cooking the fish whole, head on, then you filet the fish you
will not be disappointed.  The best part is the bite has been all day with all in the mix.  Do not forget the ice you are going to
need it.

Sebastian Inlet Report


It's a blustery morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the North-Northwest at 21 mph, gusting to 27 and the water is choppy. NOAA has issued a small craft advisory through Wednesday evening. The rest of the week looks rough for boaters.

The weekend was productive for our inlet anglers. The rough conditions, wind and rain only helped improve the bite. Snook, Reds, Spanish Mackerel, Blues, Ladyfish and Jacks were all active. We're starting to see more Black Drum and Flounder on the move! Sheepshead should be arriving in larger numbers as well. 

Our angler of the day is Hank Christianson of Melbourne. Hank landed the 26" Black Drum off the north jetty using clams.

Scouting Around-Sebastian


We started off the morning with rain and lots of clouds. It cleared up and it's a beautiful afternoon at the inlet. This afternoon winds are blowing out of the North at 16 mph, gusting to 19 and there is a moderate chop on the water. 

The bite was not so hot this morning. A couple of slot Snook came over the rails in the early morning hours but most of the morning activity came from Jacks. A couple of Blues, Ladyfish, one Pompano and a couple of very small Black Drum were landed and released; overall it was a slow morning at the inlet.

Sebastian Inlet Report



We have overcast skies at the inlet this morning. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southwest at 4 mph, gusting to 6 and there is a moderate chop on the water. NOAA is calling for small craft to exercise caution this morning. We have a chance of showers this morning, likely showers this afternoon with possible thunderstorms. Go prepared if you head to the inlet.

The Snook bite remains good. Please handle catch and release species with care. Try to lower the Snook back into the water via net if it is caught off the north jetty. Please read the FWC catch and release guidelines in the top right corner of this page. This morning there have been a lot of Jacks come over the rails of the jetties according to Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop.

Our photos today is of Susan Barr who was visiting from London and landed two smaller slot Reds, 18" and 19", two catfish and a small Jack. One of the Reds gave her quite a battle, but she prevailed in the end. The Red got stuck in the rocks and one of the local anglers climbed down to retrieve it.
