Week of March 2:  Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish Running Yesterday

Yesterday was a beautiful day to fish the inlet and Tommy at Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle tell us the Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish were running.  There’s been a lot of good action at the inlet lately and anglers are reporting catches of Snook, Redfish, Sheepshead, Black Drum and even a few Flounder this past week.

Try the North and South jetties for the Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish.  They are hitting on spoons and Gotcha lures.

Snook and Redfish you’ll find throughout the inlet biting on live shrimp off the North Jetty during the day and hitting lures at night. 

Sheepshead are also around, pretty much everywhere, and Black Drum can be found off the North and South jetties.  Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle can get you set up with your sandfleas, shrimp and clams if you're fishing for these guys. 

One angler brought in a 5 lb. Flounder of the North Jetty so they are still around to be had.  Try the T-dock on the southside of Sebastian Inlet State Park and West of the bridge too to target Flounder.

A shout out to our angler of the week – Samuel Campbell – with this gorgeous keeper Snook he caught on February 14 fishing the North Jetty.  “First keeper of the year, excellent fish!”  Way to go Samuel!  We agree…that’s a good lookin’ Snook.
