From Mike @ Native Tackle Supply Sebastian


Fishing continues to be steady at the Sebastian Inlet with a wide variety of species being brought in over the rails.  The highlights remain the redfish and snook being caught at dawn and dusk on the outgoing tide.  Live pinfish and select shrimp has been the bait of choice.  During the day bluefish has been the main catch with reports of big schools of blues everywhere from just inside the inlet to offshore in 300' of water.  Pompano, Black Drum, Spanish Mackeral, have also been reported in decent numbers with Mangrove Snapper starting to make an appearance. 


No problem with warm water in the river as the trout and snook bite has been spectacular.  Regular reports of over 20" trout have been coming in and there have even been reports of some big snook on the flats.    Those fishing trout have been happily suprised by some good sized flounder that have been mixed in. 

If you are after snook hit the docks and mangroves as the snook bite has really been on fire.  Our bait of choice has been a DOA CAL Shad in Arkansas Glow on a 1/4 jig head.  We like to put a little PRO-CURE scents on all our artificials.  Stop by and pick up a bottle and give it a shot and you too will be a believer.  Remember, snook is catch and release only.  Treat your catch with care in order to preserve the species. 

Back in the Sebastian River you may have heard of all the Bull Sharks that have been all over the news.  This is nothing unusual for this time of year as the Bull Sharks frequent the brackish water of the Sebastian River feeding on finger mullet and even a tarpon or two.  Speaking of tarpon there are plenty.  Look for the rollers and try throwing a DOA terroreyz as soon as you see a fish come up try and hit him in the nose with it for the best chance of hook up.
