Tommy at Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle tells the fishing has really picked up. Mangrove Snapper are running throughout the inlet and in the backwaters hitting on their favorite bait, live shrimp. You have your choice of fishing spots at the Park to target these guys from land.
Spanish Mackerel have been running pretty good too we hear. They are biting on little spoons, jigs and Gotcha lures. Your best bet – try the North and South jetties.
We have been getting reports of massive Red Drum, again throughout the inlet system, with a few smaller keepers in between. Use live shrimp here too and please remember your bag and size limits.
Some Tarpon and big Permit have been seen at night off the North Jetty. Tarpon are hitting on flare jigs and shallow diving plugs. Permit will hit live shrimp or crab, if you can find them. Tommy even tells us there’s been some Barracuda around too, so watch out.
