Had a great week fishing the inlet. The reds were stacked up and chewing good and the snook were mixed in as well. Live pinfish worked well for the reds and snook and shrimp worked especially well for the snook on incoming tide. Pre front the Tarpon and sharks were thick on the beach. After the front on Thursday, the bite slowed a bit but the fish are still there. With the winds dying and the weather warming, look for that Snook bite to heat up at the inlet and keep an eye out for tarpon on the beach!
The inshore bite is still pretty good. Plenty of Trout, jacks, ladyfish, flounder and Pompano along the flats and the spoil islands. When the Snook bite slowed in the inlet, the fish were feeding in the Sebastian River. Soft plastics were the best baits for both the trout and the snook as well as other mentioned species. Paddle tail baits from Storm and Storm Shrimp worked well for the Snook and Pompano!
