Winds are blowing out of the Northeast at 19 mph, gusting to 23 this morning. It's blustery, overcast but the fish are biting!

Yesterday we saw a lot of Blues and Spanish Mackerel come over the rails of the north jetty. Please remember to bleed your fish over the jetty grates, they are messy fish. Please see the Fishing Etiquette Page in the top right corner for additional info. We are seeing quite a few decent sized Flounder on the south side, west of the bridge, but so far, the big door mats have not arrived. Black Drum, Reds and Snook are also in the mix. Live shrimp is doing the trick for most species. Gotchas and spoons work well for the Mackerel and Blues.

Our angler of the day is 13 year old Brett Berkman of Indialantic. Brett landed this real nice 32" C/R Snook last Friday night using a bucktail. What a great catch, way to go Brett!

We are limping around our technical issues, we promise to get all of your photos on the fishing report real soon. Have a great weekend!

Sorry for the delay in fishing reports. This is being posted in between serious computer repairs.

In spite of 23 mph north wind and small craft advisories, fishing is excellent. The water temps remain steady, close to 80 degrees. Blues are running and providing plenty of action. The big story is about the Flounder. Some great fish are being caught west of the bridge on shrimp and finger mullet. The south side seems to be producing more fish. In addition to the Flounder, there have been numerous hookups with Black Drum, Sheepshead, Snook and Redfish. There have been many other species reported so the inlet is the place to be for fishing right now. Lake Erie not so good at this time!

Today's photo is a nice C/R 39 inch Redfish caught by Eddie Vazquez on a spoon yesterday. Great catch Eddie!


The wind picked up this morning; it's blowing out of the South-Southwest at 17 mph, gusting to 21. There is a small craft advisory in effect through Wednesday morning. A front is moving in, bringing rain and temperatures will start to fall tonight bringing us a cool day tomorrow.

Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reported that over the weekend, Saturday was a very good day with lots of different species being landed. Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, Snook, Reds, Snapper, Jacks, Blues and Flounder and a couple of Sheepshead and Spadefish were active. Sunday the bite slowed a little. Tommy reported that the bait situation is sketchy, finger mullet, mojarra and greenies are scarce, but this is still one of the better November runs he's seen in some time. This morning, Spanish Mackerel are hitting Gotcha lures and spoons. Thanks Tommy!

Mike Ricciardi of Vero Beach made it back to the north jetty on Friday and reported 6 - 7 Black Drum came over the rails, most were in the 15" - 20" range and he was lucky enough to land one of them. Mike White of Sebastian landed the largest during his time there, a nice 25" that came over the rails early in the morning. There were lots of Spanish Mackerel in play and Mike added six of those to his cooler. Jacks in the 4 - 5 lb. range were everywhere, he believes about 200 came over the rails between 7:00 - 10:00. A few large Atlantic Spadefish were landed, but no Snook or Reds were caught. The tide started turning from outgoing to incoming around 10:00 and all the Snook fishermen were getting ready as the bite has been good during the first hour of incoming. Thanks Mike!

Our first photo features Justin Foster of Satellite Beach with a nice, thick Flounder he landed while fishing the T-Dock in late October. Justin landed several C/R small Lane, Mutton and Mangrove Snapper, a small C/R black grouper along with the Flounder. Justin saw one other Flounder landed during his time on the T-Dock. Nice catch Justin!

Kelly Vila of Kissimmee is featured in our second photo. Kelly was fishing the inlet last weekend when she hooked up with this slot Redfish. Way to go Kelly!

Dave Simpson of Orlando is featured in our third and final photo today. Dave landed this real pretty 36" C/R Snook off the north jetty last Thursday. The Snook was released unharmed after the photo. Very nice Dave!

We have another pretty morning at the inlet and we have a real nice day forecasted, mid 70's with a mix of sun and clouds, but very little chance of rain. Rain chances increase over the weekend and the NOAA forecast is calling for 3 - 5' seas with a dominate period of 6 seconds. If that's a little bumpy for you, the intracoastal will be the place to be, NOAA is calling for smooth waters.

Not only having are we having superb weather, the bite is hot and our inlet anglers are keeping busy. Snook, Reds, Spanish Mackerel, big Jacks and Blues, good sized Black Drum, Trout and Flounder are making their ways in and out of the inlet. We are still waiting on the Pompano bite. Tommy Turowski of the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reported this morning, the Spanish Mackerel are tearing it up! Anglers using Gotcha lures and spoons are having good luck with the lightning fast species. Tommy reported that schools of finger mullet have thinned out but they can be found with a little persistence. Greenies, pogies, shrimp, sand fleas and clams are also good choices for bait.

Our first three photos are courtesy of Chris McFarland. Our first photo features 11 year old Jordan Minor of Deltona. Jordan was fishing with inlet with Vern Riff of Oviedo and Chris McFarland. Jordan landed a "mess" of Jacks on his first trip to the inlet. Vern landed his first Bluefish and Chris landed a real healthy Ladyfish. The trio hand 4 breakoffs and 1 straightened hook. What a great day on the water, good times, tight lines and bent rods at the inlet! Thanks Chris!

Photo two is of Vern Riff of Oviedo with his first Bluefish and photo three is of Chris McFarland with a big Ladyfish. Fun times!

Our fourth photo today is courtesy of Justin Werner of Palm Bay. This photo of Justin (center) and two other inlet regulars B.J Anan (L) and Bob Meerza (R) of Orlando with slot sized Snook. Justin reported that they had an EPIC weekend of Snook fishing with plenty of slot sized fish to go around! Awesome job guys, thanks Justin!

Our last photo today features Ezra Domnguez of Kissimmee with a monster C/R Red he landed off the north jetty on Monday night. Ezra was using a Mirrolure when he hooked up with this big Red around 7:30 p.m. The Red was released unharmed after the photo. Great catch Ezra!

We have an absolutely gorgeous morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the Northwest at 5 mph, gusting to 7 and there is a light chop on the water.

Fishing has been hot! We're seeing schools of big Jacks, large Blues, good sized Spanish Mackerel, Snook, Reds, Black Drum, Flounder, Sheepshead and some Speckled Sea Trout all making appearances. This is a great time of year to get out, enjoy the beautiful weather and wet a line! Baits of choice have been shrimp, fresh clams and sand fleas. Most anglers are using Gotcha lures or silver spoons for the Mackerel.

Our first photo today features Belly Policarpio of Kissimee with a big 9 lb. Jack she landed using finger mullet on November 5th. That big Jack must have put up a fun fight, way to go Belly!

Shaun Vasey landed the hefty Black Tip Shark in our second photo in late October, south of the south jetty. Shaun reported lots of Sharks and Spanish Mackerel in the surf. The Shark was released right after the photo. Nice catch Shaun!

Photo three is of Joey Tarasavage of Indian Harbour Beach with an undersized Snook he landed while jigging for Flounder, wading near the T-Dock. Joey reported lots of big Blues and Jacks running the inlet, chasing pogies and finger mullet. Thanks Joey!

Rob Moore of Orlando was back at the inlet last Thursday and landed six Flounder, the largest was 5 lbs. He returned on Friday to land five additional Flounder and a Snapper. Rob is hoping to see the Flounder bite steady through December, the season is shaping up well. Nice going Rob!

Justin Mitchell of Kissimmee landed this big Jack last weekend, which he released right after the photo. Nice one Justin!

We have a little wind to contend with at the inlet this morning, but it is a beautiful day. Winds are blowing out of the North-Northwest at 12mph, gusting to 17. Small craft should exercise caution through this morning. Always check the NOAA forecast before going offshore.

We are seeing some good action at the inlet. Snook, Reds, big Blues, Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, Jacks, Flounder, Atlantic Spadefish and Sheepshead are active. Many anglers are using shrimp, clams or sand fleas, but those targeting Spanish Mackerel are turning to Gotcha lures.

Our first photo today features Billy Mackolin with an enormous bull Red he landed from the inlet rocks. What a catch, way to go Billy!

Steven Bozzuto of Vero Beach fished the inlet on Monday, the 3rd and reported a fantastic day of fishing with his family. Team Bozzuto landed their limits of Black Drum, Reds, Sheepshead and Pompano. They were using dead shrimp, fresh clams and sand fleas. Photo two features Steve with a nice Black Drum. Photo three is of Steve Bozzuto with a slot Red and photo four is of Steve with their bounty. Great fishing Bozzuto family!

Our last photo is courtesy of Kurush Akbari of Palm Bay. Kurush took this shot of the sunrise in late October. Thanks Kurush!
