Week of April 19: Bring Your Bug Spray!

May contain: person, human, sunglasses, accessories, accessory, clothing, and apparel

You can expect showers today at the inlet and maybe a thunderstorm, with the wind out of the NW at 7 miles per hour. It's starting to warm up with a high of 86, and we should see passing showers until Thursday. The seas are 2 to 3 feet and there is a moderate chop on the intracoastal waters.


Tommy at Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle tells us the fishing has been fair. He’s seen a lot of snook coming in, a good amount of redfish, some Spanish mackerel, blues, jacks, and snapper. Most anglers are getting bites on live shrimp and are catching throughout the inlet—at the jetties, the shore, and the T-dock--but bring your bug spray because this warm, wet weather has brought out the no-see-ums.


Our featured angler of the week is back! This week we are checking in with Reed, who caught a Black Tip and a Bonnethead shark while on his third annual camping trip at the state park. He caught the fish in the inlet on mojarra. He always takes home incredible memories!


We love to see your photos and stories, so please connect with us and tell us about your inlet experiences to be featured in upcoming reports. We use every photo we can. To submit your photos and details of your catch, use our Contact Form.
