We also want to share the following message from our friends Sarah and Tommy at Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle:

"To our valued patrons, we are now open and in an effort to keep our customers safe, we have retrofitted the bait shop for Covid19.  While things may look a little different, our services and goods remain the same as our valued customers have come to know over the past 25 years.  We politely ask for your patience and understanding as we all tread these new waters.  We so look forward to seeing all our old friends and family of the inlet.  On a positive note, the fish had no clue.  They're biting.  Come on back, bring your kindness and patience, and your rod and reel.  Stay safe out there!"
