Tommy at Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle tell us the while the fishing has been good, the weather has been less than cooperative with a washed out Memorial Day. There have been large Red Drum hanging around, biting on live shrimp. Pompano, Bluefish, Sheepshead and Spanish Mackerel are all around to be had too, and we’re starting to see a few Mangrove Snapper throughout the inlet system. Summer is here!
Fishing has been better off the North Jetty, but don’t pass up the alternatives at Sebastian Inlet State Park for a productive day. Try the South Jetty, the catwalks and the T-dock.
Use your clams and sandfleas for targeting Pompano. Cut finger mullet or silver spoons work best for Bluefish. Same with Spanish Mackerel, but they’ll hit on Gotcha lures too. Use shrimp and sandfleas for your Sheepshead and Mangrove Snapper seem to prefer the live shrimp. Snook season is officially closed, so remember to use the appropriate catch and release techniques to preserve our fisheries for future generations.
