    Solid Redfish Bite in Inlet

    July 27, 2020

    The winds blew all week last week, making fishing off the beach tough. However, the inlet bite was decent if you could get bait and the inshore fishing is pretty good early on in the morning. Live pin fish, mullet or croakers have been good baits inshore for snook, redfish and trout. The most consistent bite for us has been reddish in the inlet.

      Live Bait Getting It Done

      July 20, 2020

      We’ve had another good week fishing the beach and the inlet in Sebastian. Joined by some regular customers, as well as a couple new ones, we did pretty good targeting redfish in the inlet and also kept busy battling tarpon, sharks and kingfish just off the beach. Live bait has been our most effective approach, but the tarpon have been eating artificial baits, as well!

        Another Busy Week On the Water

        July 13, 2020

        We had some great tarpon action on the beaches around the bait pods. Went 4-10 one day on soft plastics and live bait and went 1-5 another day. Surprisingly, a lot of our fish are being caught on soft plastics over live bait. But, the nearshore bite isn’t just tarpon, there’s plenty of sharks, jacks and mackerel and a large number of sennets, which are a species often mistaken for Barracuda.

          Off The Beach & Offshore

          June 29, 2020

          Spent the week off the beach and offshore. Had some good Kingfish action nearshore as well as offshore. Live bait was the key but we did get some Kingfish on soft plastics as well. The snapper bite was pretty decent with some Lane, mangrove, mutton and red snapper. Best bite was on dead bait and live shrimp.

            Sebastian Nearshore & Inlet

            June 22, 2020

            It was a mixed bag this past week with some offshore fishing as well as nearshore and inlet action. There’s been plenty of sharks, Kingfish and Spanish mackerel, jacks and bonito off the beaches. Live bait and artificials have been working for all species. Threadfins, Pilchards and pinfish have been especially effective baits on the beach. Poppers, Dart spins and Storm jerk baits have all been good artificial baits.

              Sebastian Nearshore

              June 15, 2020

              We definitely had some beautiful weather early and mid week, then the wind blew and seas got rough which made it tough to get off the beaches and fish. We did a few nearshore and offshore trips with the nice weather and got into some good mangrove snapper as well as red snapper and some kingfish. Even found a few tarpon in the mix. Kingfish bite has been pretty good at the inshore reefs and around the bait pods along the beaches around monster hole and spanish house. Inshore bite has been pretty decent. Live mullet, pilchards and greenies have accounted for snook as well as some big trout and slot reds.

                Rain Was A Killer

                June 8, 2020

                The week of rain was a killer, but we managed a few good trips. We got into some tripletail action inshore on live bait under a cork on a couple trips. The inlet produced some Reds and Snook on live bait and outgoing tide along with a few big jack Crevalle. Beach fishing was pretty good if you could find the bait with some tarpon, jacks and sharks on both live bait and artificial baits. With some better weather this week, look to the beaches for some solid action if you can find the bait.

                  Bait Pods Still Absent on Beach

                  June 1, 2020

                  The bite during the last week of snook season was pretty good at the inlet, but mostly in the afternoon/evening. Live greenies and Mojarra were good baits and croakers worked well, also. Along with snook, the redfish action was pretty good, too. Live pigfish and croakers were the best baits. We got into some tarpon on the beach, but the bait pods are still absent. We found some small schools migrating along the beaches looking for a meal.

                    Beach Fishing A Little Behind

                    May 26, 2020

                    Early week we were able to fish the beach with a lot of action from big Jack Crevalle as well as big Spanish macs and Sharks. There were also some tarpon in the mix but not a lot. The beach fishing seems to be a little behind this year — like most everything else. There is a lack of bait and not as much action as there should be to start the summer.
