    Get Snooking While You Can!

    December 10, 2018

    The snook bite has been really good, and you better get out after it before it’s too late! The season is closed on the 15th of December — that’s just five days from now. There’s also loads of blues and Spanish mackerel on the beaches, and meanwhile, the pompano are moving in. It’s winter time for sure!

      Thanksgiving Was Good to Us

      November 25, 2018

      Thanksgiving was good to us fisherman. Wind and weeds made surf fishing virtually impossible through the holiday weekend, but anglers have performed well in the inlet and lagoon. The best bite has been mainly on redfish, snook, and black drum, but there’s also been a ton of bluefish and ladyfish pretty much everywhere. All in all, it’s been a good week of fishing.

        Winter Has Come!

        November 18, 2018

        It’s winter time. Pompano, black drum, flounder, and bluefish are all tell tale signs of winter here in Florida. Pompano and drum feed similarly on shrimp, sand-fleas, clams, or little crabs. There are plenty of fleas on the beach, but we also have them in stock now. We try and always keep live clam, live sandfleas, and live shrimp through out the winter. We are also hoping to get some mud minnows in soon, as the flounder should be moving with this cold front.

          Hot Snook Bite at the Inlet

          November 11, 2018

          In the surf, the red tide is finally gone! With the departure of toxic algae, there’s a great bite for whiting, pompano, drum, sheepshead, bluefish, and mackerel. In the lagoon and river, fishing has been steady with bait and trout, jacks, reds, snook, tarpon, sheepshead, pompano, drum, mackerel, and bluefish.

            Red Tide Is Gone!

            November 5, 2018

            Red tide is gone and the fish are biting, so get outside and enjoy the fresh air! Mackerel have been thick with bluefish ladyfish and jacks. The redfish bite has been good all over. The snook bite finally turned back on at the inlet. It’s winter time all of these fish will eat shrimp. Oh and the Black Drum have started to show up in numbers. Clam shrimp or sandflea for them. I had the pleasure of fishing next to Jett and I learned how to catch moon fish, which are also excellent table fair.

              What Red Tide?

              October 21, 2018

              What red tide 🤷‍♀️? In the river, the redfish and jack bite has been fire 🔥, along with sheepshead trout jacks blues pompano in Melbourne beach area. Fortunately, we now finally have a north wind to blow the algae back down and away our coast.

                Mass Mullet Anytime Now

                October 1, 2018

                Sebastian Inlet has been pretty consistent with catches of snook and redfish. The mullet run is coming through in smaller schools, but we are expecting the mass migration anytime now. Following the current schools are bluefish, mackerel, jacks, ladyfish and tarpon so get out there and fish!
