From Mike @ Native Tackle Supply-Sebastian

Mackeral have been all over our beaches this week with reports of really nice sized Cero and Spanish Macks south of Disney Vero Resort.  Even a few nice sized Kings have been reported in 20' of water.  Besides the mackeral, Pompano bite has remained strong with quantity of fish better than quality this week.  Clams are a best bet, and it is always a good idea to brine them the night before so they stay on the hook a little better. 


During the day the Pompano bite has been real good with some nice sized fish in good numbers being brought over the rails at the jetty.  Best bet is clams or Doc's Goofy Jigs.  Black Drum, Sheepshead, and Spanish Mackeral have also been a steady bite.  At night it has been all about the slob Redfish and Snook.  Use 1-1/2 oz to 2 oz buck tail jigs for the snook and live select shrimp or pins for the Reds. 


Snook are making the move back into the river.  Water temps are high enough that you will start seeing linesiders underneath docks and in the mangroves.  One angler landed a 30" Snook fishing docks in the river on a DOA Arkansas Glow shad tail.  The trout bite remains hot as there are legal size trout on just about any grass flat.  Rapala Skitterwalk in Bone has been a hot plug with the topwater bite lasting well into the afternoon.
