Sebastian Inlet Report
North jetty: It's all about the snook, still. Quite a few fish have been caught last week and throughout the weekend at the tip of the jetty, and along the inside on both tides, incoming being the best as the water is higher. With the full moon being on March 7, it has the outgoing tide pretty low and the fish have moved out further and the boaters are slamming them! Had to reach them from the jetty. Big females are starting to bite now as the water has warmed up to where they like it. Spawning season for them is just around the corner and they are chewing. Live baits of choice have been croakers and pigfish; they have laid off the shrimp some, but are eating them. Other species being caught on the same baits are the redfish, some small and most are bigger bull reds. Remember, they are still catch-and-release. For those fishing shrimp and sandfleas there have been pompano and black drum still around with the cleaner water. Bluefish and jack crevalles are also present on the outgoing tide for those fishing silver spoons and gotcha lures. Along the rock shoreline between the jetty and catwalk on the incoming tide, and first of the outgoing there are some nice sheepshead still being caught on cut shrimp, also some smaller snook on live shrimp.
