An inshore report from less than two weeks ago comes to us from our featured angler of the week – Margaret Walls. She tells us there was “great fishing during the full moon, just about an hour before dusk and during the night-time hours. Lots of Snook and slot Reds were biting. This Snook was safely released back into the water.” If Margaret looks familiar, that’s because she was featured a few weeks ago with a massive Redfish. Way to go Margaret landing these guys, nice streak!
We have been getting some mixed reports with better action offshore/inshore but fishing has been decent on the North Jetty, and other areas in and around the inlet. Anglers have been seeing some Mangrove Snapper, Red Drum, Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel.
Live shrimp seem to be the favorite bait for targeting Mangrove Snapper. Red Drum will hit on those too off the North Jetty, and don’t forget the catwalks and T-dock, particularly during the tide change. Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish both hit on cut bait, and use your silver spoons for Bluefish and Gotcha lures for Spanish Mackerel. And, as always, call Tommy at Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle for the latest fishing updates at 321-768-6621.
The weather is looking pretty good for this week with south winds dominant all week, up to 10 knots. Seas between 1-3 feet. Thursday and Friday bring lower chances of afternoon thunderstorms and the temps will be hot so make sure to bring plenty of water and don’t forget the sunscreen.
