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!
There’s really fishing in the lagoons, inlets, and on/off the beaches right now. Notably, the redfish bite has been fire, and the snook are biting really well, too. Tarpon, mackerel, ladyfish, jacks, snapper, and sharks are also among the species showing up in good numbers.
The big tarpon are cruising the beaches and there’s nothing like the thrill of fighting one of these magnificent fish. Just remember that it’s extremely important to handle these creatures with care; they are old and need to be revived after a long fight.
With shrimp being hard to come by this time of year, we have to look for different ways to fish. Sherry went with frozen shrimp and caught black drum, sheepshead, snapper, and redfish all in the Indian River Lagoon.
