03-22-17 WEDNESDAY: BLUES, BLUES AND MORE BLUES

It's another gorgeous day at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southwest at 1 mph with gusts to 5 and the water has a light chop. These great conditions won't be around for long. A front is moving in that will bring us increasing winds and building seas that will produce hazardous boating conditions through the weekend. NOAA has a small craft advisory from 5:00 p.m. Thursday through Saturday morning. Always check the NOAA forecast prior to boating as conditions can change quickly.

Sarah Sams at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reports that Bluefish remain the dominant species and some real nice fish have come over the rails. Using a heavy leader is recommended when targeting Bluefish to avoid cutoffs. A few Sheepshead are active and will hit any crustacean or jig tipped with the same. We're seeing sporadic hits of Pompano for anglers fishing from the beach using live sand fleas and today would be a great day to get out and try your luck. Thanks Sarah!

Our photo today is courtesy of Luke Vila of Kissimmee. Luke and his girlfriend Lauren Mills fished the inlet shoreline on Friday and Luke admits that Lauren out-fished him! Lauren landed several nice fish including the Bermuda chub that Luke is holding in the photo. This Chub took a shrimp's tail whose body had been bitten off prior. These fish are normally vegetarian but will take cut baits at times. They aren't very good eating but they are fun fighters. This fish was released to fight another day. Nice catch Lauren!

03-21-17 TUESDAY: BLUES, SHEEPSHEAD, SNOOK AND BLACK DRUM

It's a lovely morning at the Sebastian Inlet. Winds are blowing out of the South at 2 mph, gusting to 5 and there is a light chop on the water. Although waters are calm, NOAA still has a small craft advisory for seas. A front will move through Wednesday evening through Thursday, creating hazardous boating conditions, plan accordingly.

Sarah Sams at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reports that the Bluefish bite is still strong and some real big fish have come over the rails. Using a heavy leader is recommended when targeting Bluefish to avoid cutoffs. Sheepshead are also active and will hit any crustacean or jig tipped with the same. The night bite for Snook has been good and a few Black Drum have been landed as well. Thanks Sarah!

03-20-17 MONDAY: WE'VE GOT THE BLUES!

We have a real nice day at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the North at 9 mph, gusting to 14 and there is a moderate chop on the water. NOAA has a small craft advisory in effect for seas. Seas will slowly subside through mid-week then start to build again Thursday morning.

It's all about the Blues at the inlet. This weekend the bite was fantastic according to Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop. Large schools of big Blues were making their way in and out of casting range from the jetties. Blues in the 10 lb. range were not uncommon and one angler landed one that was 17 lbs.! Silver spoons work well for Blues but they will hit just about anything, live or artificial. They love the bling, use shiny lures and a heavy wire leader to avoid break offs from their razor sharp teeth. Along with the Blues, quite a few Sheepshead, big Jacks, Spanish Mackerel, Reds and Snook were active over the weekend. Thanks Tommy!

Our photo today is courtesy of Bill Russell of Sebastian. Bill and Julie and Sid Golliher went offshore on Saturday and had a great day on the water. The trio landed two Lane Snapper, two Sea Bass, two Porgies, multiple Sharks, three Red Snapper that were returned to the water, and the beautiful 34", 35 lb. Blackfin Tuna. Sid Golliher is featured with the nice Tuna. Way to go Sid!

03-17-17 TGIF AND HAPPY ST.PATRICK'S DAY!

It's warming up and we have a beautiful day at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the North-Northwest at 13 mph, gusting to 17 and there is a moderate chop on the water. Conditions will continue to improve through tomorrow until a cold front moves in Sunday morning which will create poor to hazardous boating conditions. Always check the NOAA forecast prior to boating.

Tomorrow should be a good day to get out and do some surf fishing. Pompano are migrating and like to run fairly close to shore in the troughs. Sheepshead, Snook, Reds and smaller Jacks are being landed from the north and south jetties. Pompano are also being landed on the flats along with some Spanish Mackerel and good sized Trout. Get out and wet a line this weekend!

Our anglers of the day are Dave Vermilye of Sebastian and Craig Davis of Burton, MI. Dave and Craig fished the north jetty last Friday morning when they both landed the beautiful Snook in our photo. Both Snook measured 31 7/8" and were just in the slot. The men landed both fish on live shrimp. Great catches gentlemen!

We have another chilly morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the West-Northwest at 9 mph, gusting to 12 and there is a moderate chop on the water. Poor boating conditions today will gradually improve through Saturday. Another cold front is predicted for Sunday morning which will give us poor to hazardous boating conditions again.

03-15-17 WEDNESDAY: SHEEPSHEAD, SNOOK, REDS, BLACK DRUM, POMPANO, MACKEREL AND JACKS

Brrr....button up anglers, we have a very chilly, windy morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the West-Northwest at 14 mph, gusting to 21 and there is a moderate chop on the water. NOAA has a small craft advisory in effect through 4:00 p.m. today. Hazardous boating conditions will continue through today then begin to gradually improve through Saturday. Always check the NOAA forecast prior to boating as conditions can change very quickly.

Will this cold front invigorate the bite? To find out, bundle up and get out there and toss a line in the water! We usually see the fish become more active with a change in weather pattern. Sheepshead are the dominant species along with some nice Reds and Snook. Pompano, Spanish Mackerel, Trout and few other straggler species are being landed on the flats.

Our angler of the day is Christina Clyburn of Winter Garden. Christina and her husband Randy were fishing the north jetty on Friday when she landed the beautiful Permit in our photo. This nice fish measured 21.5" to the fork. Christina was using live shrimp to land her fish. Great catch Christina!

We have a beautiful, crisp morning at the inlet. Temperatures are in the low 60's this morning and winds are blowing out of the West-Southwest at 7 mph with gusts to 17. The water is choppy and NOAA has a small craft advisory in effect through 4:00 p.m. today. Always check the NOAA forecast prior to boating.

Tommy reports that live shrimp are doing the trick for most species right now. The flats are holding some good sized Trout, Spanish Mackerel and Pompano.

Our angler of the day is Birhan McCalla of Palm Bay. Birhan landed the nice Sheepshead using sand fleas from the north jetty on Friday. Nice catch Birhan!

03-10-17 TGIF!

We have an absolutely gorgeous morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the South-Southwest at 7 mph, gusting to 10 and the water is clean and calm. A front will be moving through this evening causing conditions to deteriorate. NOAA has issued a small craft advisory from this evening through Saturday evening. Always check the NOAA forecast prior to boating.

We had a fantastic Snook bite early this morning with a flurry of activity from the north jetty. Some beautiful slot fish came over the rails along with some under and oversized Snook. Live shrimp was the bait of choice. After the bite died down, a beautiful Permit and one nice Sheepshead came over the rails along with a few small Jacks and Blues.

Our first photo today is courtesy of Chris Lachle of Palm Bay. Chris and his 9 year old son Cayden were fishing the Indian River Lagoon at Fisherman's Landing when Cayden landed his first Snook. The undersized Snook was released unharmed right after the photo. Great job, Cayden!

Photo two features inlet regular Dave Vermilye of Sebastian. Dave fishes the inlet quite a bit during Snook season and is one of our more talented anglers on the north jetty. Dave landed his 31" slot Snook earlier this week. Nice catch Dave!
