Scouting Around Sebastian Area
The bite from the jetties remains on the slow side but our more patient anglers are picking up some Snook during low light periods. We have a week left in the season so get out and try to land one in the slot before June 1st. Once spawning starts, it's best not to target them, it only exhausts the fish and you can't keep them anyway. We need those big breeders to go out and make more Snook. Grass beds on the flats are holding Speckled Trout and Mangrove Snapper have started to appear as well. Get out and wet a line!
Our photo today is features Johnny L. who is a new resident of Sebastian. Johnny moved up from Fort Lauderdale last week and wasted no time getting out and enjoying the great fishing. He and Dean fished the flats last weekend and had a great time on one of our spoil islands landing Snook, Redfish, Trout and Mangrove Snapper. Dean reported great fishing and loved the fact that he dodged 18" of snow while he was here! This beautiful Snook was lifted out of the net, photo quickly taken and immediately put back into the water.
