Lagoon mixing with the saltwater. Fish avoid this water, especially when the temperature changes and creates what I call snot weed, It is slimy and coats your rigs and bait while fishing. But at least it is disappearing. Last week, fishing was slow but picked up over the weekend.

Sebastian Inlet Report
The mangrove snapper have shown up again with some nice 11 to 12-inch fish being caught on cut baits and small greenies cast netted along the jetty. Incoming tide is better for them as they are being caught at the tip along the rocks, and inside between the pilings. I talked to one angler last Friday who was fishing for permit around the tip on the early outgoing tide with live crabs floated out in the rip, and he said he had hooked three but lost two to the rocks and the third to a Goliath grouper. He said the fish were about 10 to 15 pounds. Sheepshead are still around the pilings on the incoming tides with live fiddler crabs.
