Week of May 24: Bite is better!

Sunny today with a high of 83. Winds from the ESE 10 to 15 mph. The marine forecast calls seas 4 to 5 feet and a light chop on the intracoastal waters.

Tommy at Sebastian Inlet Bait & Tackle says the winds have calmed down and the bite has picked up.  You’ll find snook off the North Jetty biting on live shrimp. The snapper are starting to show up too liking the live shrimp and greenies. According to Tommy, anglers are still bringing in redfish on buck tails, finger mullet and poppers. Rounding out the recent catches are jacks, catfish and southern stingrays.

Featured as our angler of the week, Lucas Wyatt who caught this 35-inch snook yesterday morning on a daiwa SP minnow. Lucas says the bite was slow except for some sight casting with jigs and plugs.

We want to thank our men and women of the military for their service as we look forward to Memorial Day!  Tommy is happy to help all of our weekend anglers and veterans reel ‘em in…  Go see him for some great tips! Due to the holiday, this report will resume on Tuesday, June 1st.
