Week of May 20: Bite has picked up and anglers have two weeks left to bring in Snook

From our friend Sarah at Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle it is top to bottom, crystal clear out there…perfect conditions so get out there if you can!

The bite has really picked up.  You’ll find Snook off the North Jetty biting on live shrimp.  There’s some Permit out there too.  Cobia have been spotted schooling under the Rays and they’ll hit finger mullet, live shrimp or lure.  The Snapper are starting to show up too and live shrimp is your best bet there.  Anglers are still bringing in Redfish on big buck tails, mullet and shrimp.

Featured as our angler of the week, one of the jetty regulars Stephanie Lindgren showing off the first Permit she caught EVER – off the North Jetty last August.  Check out her personal fishing and hunting guide service The Saltiest Sweet Spot.

We want to thank our men and women of the military for their serve as we look forward to Memorial Day!  Sarah is looking forward to helping all of our weekend anglers and veterans reel ‘em in..  Go see her for tips on where to find the best action!

Have a wonderful time fishing out there and please help keep our park clean.  Take everything you brought with you and make sure to put trash and used line in the appropriate receptacles.

Calling for your submissions!  We need photos and stories to include in upcoming fishing reports.  If you want to be featured with your catch, send in a picture and the details of your fishing trip to the inlet by using the Contact Form on our website.  Pictures work best horizontal and if you center the person with their catch, leaving room on the sides. We try to publish every one we receive.
