Week of May 6: Seeing Mostly Spanish Mackerel, Jacks and Blues..

Reports have been a bit slow, but we are hearing that you can still bring in Spanish Mackerel, Jacks and Bluefish on the North Jetty.  Some Redfish and Snook on the tide change.  Same, same from last week.  Use the Got-cha lures and spoons for Spanish Mackerel, Jacks and Blues.  Your best bet for Redfish and Snook is minnows and shrimp.  We want to send a special shout out to our friends Tommy and Sarah at Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle, and you know why!

Check out these beautiful Reds caught by friends and Sebastian Inlet regulars Luciano, Michael and David – our featured anglers of the week!  Just a few weeks ago, they had an “action-packed Friday night and Saturday morning at the inlet.”  They saw several slot Snooks come over the rails, lots of over-sized Reds and when the morning came, they’d reeled in many Jacks and Bluefish too.  These guys also wanted to give a special shout out to another inlet regular Mr. Bob, aka the Snook Whisperer!  Not only did he share his secrets, but he helped all three guys get on the Snook.  Luciano, we thank you for your service!  Really glad you can get some good R&R at Sebastian Inlet!

NOAA is calling for better weather earlier in the week with chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon Thursday and Friday.  E to ESE winds anticipated all week, no more than 10 knots with calm seas.  Temps in the mid- to high-80s all week and dare we say, summer is acomin’!  Check out our webcam for the most current weather conditions.

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 to highlight what a great place Sebastian Inlet is..!
