Week of November 18: Cold Weather, Great Fishing!

Just got off the phone with Sarah at Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle and the fishing has been out of this world.  The fish are biting and anglers are bringing in Bluefish, Jacks, Spanish Mackerel, Redfish and Pompano on lures, live shrimp and live bait.  The mullet are running so plenty of live bait to be had.  There’s been action everywhere – the North and South Jetties, the beach, throughout the inlet system.  We know it’s a little chilly, especially this morning in the 50s, but get out there and drop a line.

For all of you who use the webcam and weather station on this site frequently, we thank you for your patience as we were working through some new hardware and backend software issues!  Looks like we are almost 100% functional again and with some good feedback from some of our regulars, the “West Shot” will be a permanent view for all you anglers out there.

NOAA is calling for stronger winds all week, up to 15 knots, with rougher seas between 8-10 feet throughout today and Tuesday.  Small craft advisories in effect through Tuesday night.  Seas calm and close out the week at 3-4 feet, with winds turning easterly.  Check out the latest here.

We’ve got another throwback featured angler of the week..  One of our favs, and boy does this guy know his fish, FWC regulations and limits!  A shout out to Garryn and his mom with photos here from last November that show him working hard to reel in this beautiful Redfish on the North Jetty!

If you want to be featured in the weekly fishing report as our angler of the week, send us the details of your fishing trip to the inlet and photos.  You can use the Contact Form on this site to submit and send us both horizontal and vertical photos with the angler centered with his or her catch.

Have a great week!
