Week of June 8: Anglers Waiting for a Break in the Weather…

From what we hear, while there has been some action at the inlet this past week, fishing hasn’t been spectacular.  Partially because of the weather, and it looks like your best bet weather-wise this week are on Thursday and Friday.

Our friend Tommy has seen more Mangrove Snapper around as you’d expect heading into the summer season.  Use live shrimp to target them. 

He’s still seeing some nice Pompano here and there, hitting on clams and sandfleas, and anglers are bringing in Red Drum, Spanish Mackerel, and Bluefish on the North Jetty.  Cut bait works well for Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish, or you can try silver spoons for Bluefish and Gotcha lures for the Spanish Mackerel.  Blue Runners were running day before yesterday and they will hit on a variety of baits.  Try dead shrimp or smaller jigs. 

For the latest updates, call or go see Tommy at Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle – 321-768-6621.  He's been there for more than 20 years and NO ONE knows the fishing at the inlet better than him.

This week’s featured angler and photo comes to us from a recent trip through Sebastian Inlet offshore for a day of fishing fun.  Check out this Dolphin caught by one of the District’s Commissioners – Michael Rowland.  Way to go!  He tells us he hooked this fish on the way back in East of the inlet in 150 ft. of water.
