The Jacks are back and will be a great target this week. The 6-12 pound Jack Crevalle are back in numbers and if you are fishing the beaches and Sebastian Inlet by boat or jetty, you should be able to get into some good action between other target species. Live pinfish and greenies have been the best baits to get them fired up. Along with the jacks, the Bluefish and Redfish are in the inlet. But you will have to get through the jacks to get the others to bite. Snook bite is still a little slow but look forward to them to turn on anytime in the next week or two.
Inshore bite around the docks, spoil islands and mangrove shorelines is good and will get better as we continue to get more bait in the lagoon. Live finger mullet, pigfish, small pogies and greenies and shrimp below popping corks are working great for live bait. Artificial bite was a little slow this last week with the dirty water but should pick back up when the water cleans up. Trout, snook, jacks, pompano, spanish mackerel and some redfish are going to be great targets but the big trout are some of my favorite to catch this time of year. I like to practice catch and release on the big trout to help out the population.
The Sebastian River, Turkey Creek and Crane Creek are all very active and a great place to hide from these winds. Fish live shrimp or mullet along the docks and shorelines for Snook and jacks and look in the deeper water for rolling tarpon.
