Week of February 17: Snook and Massive Reds on Outgoing Tide

Just got the report from Sarah at Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle.  There’s been lots of Snook on outgoing tide hitting shrimp, baitfish and your top water lures.  We are still getting reports of massive Redfish being caught on the outgoing tide too.  Use crab, shrimp, clams and sandfleas. 

Anglers have been bringing in Black Drum, Pompano, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish too, so it’s all out there to be had.  Try the North and South jetties for the Black Drum, Pompano, Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish.  To target the Black Drum and Sheepshead, stick to your shrimp, clams and sandfleas.  For the Pompano, use bucktail jigs or live shrimp.  And, go see Sarah or Tommy at the bait shop by BG’s Surfside Grill & Adventures for the latest.

Our featured angler of the week is this week is one of our very own Commissioners and avid fellow angler - Michael Rowland.  He and his friends went out to the inlet week before last and brought home these Pompano.  Nice catch guys!

Looks like warmer weather earlier in the week with colder temps in the 60s settling mid-week.  Wednesday, Thursday and Friday show chance of showers, but Sunday looks like a great day to make it out  Check the latest weather report for Sebastian Inlet here

A few weeks ago we transitioned to a new website and we appreciate your patience as we work out some technical issues we have had with the Contact Form submissions.  Several people have submitted for the fishing report, but the photo attachments were corrupted.  We’re working on it and we hope to be able to feature you all soon!
