Sebastian River

So we went to Sebastian river before the rains came, we didn’t get out early though. On the water about 10:00. We went south out of the park on Roseland rd. Once again, I didn’t do too well, only catching a few lady fish. Wife caught two nice Reds, one was really nice about 3-4lbs. I was on my way to get a picture and she had it slip out of her hands 😯.

We saw a lot of Tarpon the farther back we went. I think I hooked up with one on a top water plug but then the knot between the braid and leader gave out 😫. After that no more hits on what I threw next. I really need to figure out how to get them to bite?????

On a follow-up to our trip to EGR. Wife had a Dolphin steal a fish she was bringing into to the kayak. It came out of nowhere and hit the fish and took off and snapped the line right off. Needless to say, she was pretty shocked!

    I’m no expert but I’ve seen the best fisherman be humbled by the water. Fishing is definitely a sport of seasons, and trail/error, so don’t be too frustrated. Besides, the learning curve is what makes the successful days worth while. That being said, the quickest way to learn to fish your area and learn tactics is by booking creditable fishing charter. I know that’s the expensive suggestion, but if you booked a good guide for each of the “seasons” we have here you would learn a lot.

    As far as suggestions, If you are a morning person I would try to be on the water as early as possible. When I was a kid I would get to my first spot before the sunrise, and caught my personal best fish during first light. Otherwise if your like me now days, I like to sleep in ahah. I start fishing my first spot by 5pm and go until I cannot see my cast land. I love fishing with artificial but live bait helps eliminate the skunk factor. I’ve seen big snook, trout, and tarpon be pulled out of the Sebastian river on 3inch to 9inch white mullet. Smaller for cold water months, bigger for summer. Practice FG braid to leader knots. The more I learn the more I can share. Good luck out there.
