Kept Inshore by Weather

snook fishing with Noah

For most of this past week, weather wasn’t good for us to get off the beach. We fished inshore from Palm Bay down to Sebastian and had a good bite on Trout, bluefish and jacks with some small Snook and Redfish mixed in. Soft Plastic jerk baits and Rapala Twitchin Mullet are the best baits with the most success for us. Live Finger mullet and pigfish will give you some decent fish but we haven’t caught the numbers of fish using live bait as we have using artificial.

The few days we fished Sebastian Inlet, it was slow with Jacks being the best action using live bait. We did fish some nearshore reefs and even with the red tide, we were able to get plenty of Lane Snapper, Mutton Snapper, Triggerfish and some blue runners. Live or dead shrimp worked well and the Native Salt Clam helped us catch plenty of fish as well.

Lagoon redfish

The red tide did kill quite a few fish along the coast and some in the inlet as well. But from my trips this week, I saw plenty of action and didn’t find the red tide in the Indian River Lagoon. There were a lot of dead fish floating in the inlet on incoming tide which made it look like there were a lot of fish dying in the lagoon, but from what I could see, most if not all of the dead fish were being pushed in with the incoming tide.
