Week of April 15: Spanish Mackerel and Jacks still biting, but the action has been a bit slow

Anglers can still pick up some Spanish Mackerel and Jacks on the outgoing tide, ocean side and off the North Jetty.  Got-cha lures and silver spoons are doing the trick.  Sarah from Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle tells us there’s been Snook and Redfish here and there, biting on shrimp and mojarra.  You’ll find some Pompano from the beach and around the North Jetty.  Try your sandfeas and shrimp there.  There have been some Lookdowns around too, use tiny jigs for them.  Refer to your FWC rules and regulations guide – If you don’t know, let it go, and please practice appropriate catch and release techniques.

We are excited to share our angler of the week with you guys..  This young man was camping at Sebastian Inlet State Park with his dad, Michael Collins, who sent in this photo.  Reed Collins is 9-years old and caught this nice looking Sea Trout on April 3 within 200 yards of the boat launch at Coconut Point.  Reed was fishing a DOA silver/black jig.  Way to go, Reed!!

Keep sending in your photos and details of your fishing trips to the inlet by using the Contact Form on our website.  Photos work best horizontal and if you center the person with their catch.

Have fun out there and be safe!
