    Waiting on Warmer Waters

    February 18, 2019

    Our week started off slow with windy weather and cold water temps. The Mackerel and Bluefish were hitting and a few trout and triple tail were inside but the inlet bite was slow during the day. Late in the week the reds showed up and were feeding but the snook still haven’t been active. Look for the warming trend we are having to help improve the bait situation inside the Indian River and the beaches and the bite should get better everywhere. Live pinfish and Mojarra should be great baits for the snook as the water warms up and the redfish will eat the same. The rays should be moving through with the warmer waters as well and should bring some cobia with them!

      Weedy Waters

      February 10, 2019

      We had a good weather week last week with some tough fishing for the snook and reds due to the cold water and a lot of weeds along the beaches and in the inlet. However, The pompano bite was good and there were plenty of bluefish and some mackerel around. The weeds brought in the triple tail along the beaches and into the lagoon as well.

        Tough Past Week

        February 4, 2019

        Last week was a tough week if you were in the fishing business. As with everything you have some tough times and it wasn’t the best week of fishing as the water temps dropped to 56 degrees in the Indian River Lagoon near Sebastian. It slowed the bite down inshore for sure but we managed to get some trout, jacks and ladyfish.

          Tough Fishing

          January 27, 2019

          The winds and weather this week made the fishing tough for us but we ended up getting some fish in the inlet and in the mangrove shorelines. The bite as Sebastian Inlet was good for Pompano, bluefish and Mackerel when the winds were out of the Northeast. Once the wind switched out of south, the water got dirty and the bite slowed down so we moved inshore and got some slot trout and small snook on artificials. Winds and waves were too high to get on the beach or outside the inlet to fish for the snook, reds and sharks.

            Inlet and Inshore Producing

            January 14, 2019

            Inlet and inshore bite was great this week. The Flounder bite is still decent for guys fishing with live bait along the channel edges. Pompano are thick around Sebastian on the beaches and in the Indian River Lagoon. We caught most of our pompano jigging either Goofy jigs or Storm Coastal Shrimp rigged on 1/4 ounce jighheads. If the bite was slow, we put a little pro cure on to help the bite. Along with the Pompano, the jacks, bluefish, mackerel and ladyfish have been thick. Same baits as we use for the pompano worked well on these species.

              Good Fishing Along the Beach

              December 31, 2018

              We had a pretty good week of fishing along the beach. Lots of Mackerel, Pompano and Bluefish along the beaches as well at Blacktip Sharks. The blacktip migrations is in full swing and they are feeding on the baitfish as well as the jacks blues and mackerel. We’ve also caught a few bull sharks mixed in with the blacktips.

                Best Flounder Bite in Years

                December 17, 2018

                When we did get out over this past week, we spent most of our time in the inlet. The Flounder bite has been the best I’ve seen in the last several years. Plenty of 5lb pound fish caught on live bait fished on a knocker rig on the bottom. Along with the Flounder, there were pompano jacks and ladyfish in the inlet hitting jigs and soft plastic baits jigged on the bottom. When we could get outside the inlet, we got more bluefish and jacks along with some Spanish Mackerel.
