Week of September 3: All about the Snook with some Reds, Mangrove Snapper and Permit biting too

Lots of excitement abound this weekend on the North Jetty for the kickoff of snook season as is evidenced by our friend Ed Killer’s front-page reporting for the Indian River Press Journal, the Florida Today and more.  Go to to see his videos.

Janet at the Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle reports lots of keeper snook being caught out there with the Mangrove Snapper and Reds biting too.  Tommy is back tomorrow so go see him for the latest!  Special thanks to our angler of the week Stephanie Lindgren who caught this 29.5 inch permit at high noon on Saturday, August 25.  “My first permit ever…such a fun fish to catch!  It was quite the excitement on the pier.  I felt like a Rockstar for the day!”

For all of you who submitted pictures from your fishing trip to the Inlet this weekend, stay tuned to our webpage for more posts.  We love photos and post every one we can, so keep sending them in..
