From Mike @ Native Tackle Supply-Sebastian

The Sebastian Inlet remains consistent with a variety of fish with snook and reds being the best bet for those fishing early morning and early evening bites at the jetty.  Live pinfish and select size shrimp as always is the live bait of choice with blue and white bucktails catching snook a plenty once the sun goes down.  There has also been a little bit of a surge in flounder activity with quite a few customers coming into the shop reporting nice sized flounder being caught mainly on a dead finger mullet.  Try split tailing the mullet and using a 2 oz egg sinker if fishing from the "L" Dock.  Besides the above the usual suspects of spanish mackeral, bluefish, black drum, whiting, and pompano have all been caught in good numbers which is why this is one of the best times of the year to fish the Sebastian Inlet!


Last weeks inshore report remains the same with the river in our area still belonging 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.

One thing different from last week has been the reports of flounder both in the inlet and surrounding flats.  H & H Sparkle Beetles on a 1/4 oz jig head have been a hot bait for both flounder and trout. 

Those looking to really bend a rod, there have been a bunch of bull and spinner sharks in the Sebastian River feeding on mullet and a tarpon or two.  Best bet would be to fish late afternoon and early evening with a dead mullet on the bottom.
