In the river we are seeing big redfish along with a lot of ladyfish and jacks. For the big reds, it’s hard for them to pass up a live shrimp or piece of cut bait. The best action seems to be in the early mornings and evenings. There are quite a few tarpon in the river right now as well.
We are seeing quite a few redfish right now along the river banks from Malabar to Grant. It’s hard for them to resist a well place shrimp or piece of cut bait. Also, the snook bite at the inlet has picked up as well. Live bait such as pinfish, croakers or a large live shrimp will have you hooked up in no time!
The snook bite at Sebastian Inlet is still pretty good. Live croakers are the go to bait for these fish. You will probably catch some redfish to while chasing your slot snook. There are quite a few tarpon being caught in the river on live pinfish and shrimp.
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.
