From Mike @ Native Tackle Supply-Sebastian

This is one of the best times of year to fish the jetty at the Sebastian Inlet just for the variety of fish that can be caught.  Big Redfish continue to be in full force with most slot and overslot reds being caught on a live pinfish.  Early morning anglers are being rewarded with a slow but steady Pompano catch on clams or shrimp.  Fish a Doc's Goofy Jig tipped with Fish Bites strip if you want to cover more water.  Black Drum and sheepshead are also around and being caught on shrimp tipped jigheads or fiddler crabs. A few anglers fishing for pleasure earlier this week  came across a nice school of spanish mackeral inside the inlet and was able to take a few home for dinner using Gotcha plugs


The river in our area still belongs to sea trout.  The trout bite has remained steady for the past few weeks and continues to do so.  Use a topwater plug in a bone color for a fun early morning bite.  As the weather and water continues to warm so does the snook bite.  Snook have been regular catches on our trips as of late and a good sign has been the number of nursery sized snook.  Fish the usual places for snook....docks and mangroves pitching a nice sized live shrimp or leave the bucket behind and fish a DOA Shrimp in gold glitter.  Back in the Sebastian River the Tarpon have moved in pretty thick.  Early morning or late afternoon bites have been the best with a lot of 15#-50# fish rolling.  Use a DOA Terroreyz in a bone variety and hit them on the nose with it.

Overall this is why we love the Spring in Florida.  There is such a great variety of fishing both inshore and offshore.  The weather is hot but not too hot with the mornings and evenings still being cool.  It is a great time of year to get out there and enjoy your waters.
