The kingfish bite just keeps getting better and better out of Sebastian Inlet. Two weeks ago the bite was hot, but this past week it’s been straight up explosive! These fish seem to be on every rock and every piece of structure that you can imagine, all the way out to 100 feet. Bait hasn’t really seemed to matter, either. They are destroying lives almost instantly. For the bigger kings, an 8-10″ slow-trolled live mullet has been hard to beat.
In addition to the Kings, we’ve had a good mixed bag. The topwater bite has been a lot of fun with good catches of mahi, cobia, bonita, Spanish mackeral and even a few Amberjack have crashed the party. Most of these fish are coming on a live bait out back while bottom fishing.
The bottom bite has gotten a little better with a few mangroves, beeliners and triggerfish coming up to round out the box. The 90 ft ledges have been the best producers, but there have been some nice fish caught in the 60 ft depths, as well. Get out there and catch some fish!
