From Mike @ Native Tackle Supply-Sebastian

It may feel like summer to us but the flounder must think its December with the amount and size of some of the flounder coming into the shop.  Nobody tell them otherwise in hope that the flounder bite over the past few weeks continues.  Those wading the grass flats working jigs slowly have had the best luck with artificial of choice being the DOA Cal Shad on a 1/8-1/4 oz jig head.  We prefer Arkansas Gold or Black / Gold here at the shop.  The flounder may be down below but the trout are definitely up on top with a great morning topwater bite.  
Back in the river the tarpon bite has remained steady but the fish are starting to move into the inlets and beaches.  Try slow trolling a live mullet or if anchored up split tail one and drop it on the bottom.    

Daytime inlet fishing has been spotty with best times to fish being early mornings and early evenings depending on the tides.  Snook, Tarpon, and Reds have been the main attraction at night with big bull sharks ruining the party for many catch and release anglers bringing in half a fish or having to watch their carefully released fish become dinner.  Of course it sharks are what you are after no better time than right now to hit the inlet with a big bonita, ladyfish, or similar.  Inside the channel mangrove snapper and sheepshead have been the best bet mainly on live shrimp.  
  Also check their store out they have some great farther's day deals that can't be beat........
