Trout, trout and more trout seems to be the theme this week down south. We are seeing some solid fish being caught in the 28″ – 32″ range. Pigfish are the go to bait of choice. Offshore we are still seeing tons of kingfish and snapper.
We are still getting some mutton and lane snapper in the 40-60 foot depths. If you can cast net some pilchards, it’s always nice to have live bait on hand. If not, cut bait will work. Get your chum slick going with some chunks mixed in and you should be able to get them chewing.
We are seeing lots and lots of tarpon in both Goat Creek and the Sebastian River right now. The trout bite has slowed in our area a bit. At Sebastian Inlet, big snook, redfish and jacks are being caught
There have been solid numbers of pompano caught at Sebastian Inlet and around the spoil islands. The big redfish are also being caught in good numbers at the inlet. It’s hard for them to resist a live bait placed in their path.
