Fishing action at the inlet has been excellent over the weekend. Reports indicate that hookups were constant during the day. Jacks provide most of the continuous action, mixed with Snapper, Snook and Mackerel. A few overslot Redfish are being landed and released.

The Jacks are hitting both live and dead mullet. Shrimp continue to do well for most fish and those using greenies are having good luck. It is a beautiful time of year to fish the inlet and predictions are for a great Fall and Winter season this year. Mullet are staged in the St. Augustine area and could represent an extended mullet run in our area following the next cold fronts. Bluefish are showing up off the beach and should also move in soon. With a few sizeable Flounder being caught, and the Spanish Mackerel beginning to show up, all points to a great season.

It has been a beautiful day at the inlet with plenty of fish biting. It is breezy and a little choppy and is predicted to pick up even more tonight. Friday may be rough but the fish should continue feeding. Many Jacks have been hooked on shrimp and are providing much action. Small Snook (12 to 14 inches) are being landed and released. The Snook are being caught by the Snapper fishermen who are also landing a fair amount of Mangrove Snapper. There are also a few Black Drum starting to show. Missing from the line-up are the feisty Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish. They have been spotted around Fort Pierce Inlet and to the north of Cape Canaveral. Rumor has it that the Blues and Mackerel will start to show following the north winds on Friday and Saturday.
Why go to the Keys or Bahamas in search of Bonefish, Pompano and Permit when you can fish the flats around Sebastian Inlet? Late yesterday evening, Lindsay Rowland was testing her newly outfitted skiff on the backside of the inlet when she landed several Bonefish and two Pompano. Lindsay's friend, Steve Stewart also landed and released three beautiful juvenile Mutton Snapper on fly. See photos. The Sebastian Inlet may now be referred to as an exotic fishing destination!

Fog and smooth water this morning. Fishing bite could turn on with mild front moving through. Same players as yesterday with the addition of a couple of Permit being caught. Could be worth the effort today!


It's a beautiful fall morning at the inlet. Winds are blowing out of the North at 4 mph, gusting to 6 and the water is calm. We had a gorgeous weekend and everybody is getting into the fall fishing mode. We received several updates and photos from folks who landed big Reds. Low light periods or nights have been best for Snook.

Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reported that this morning a couple of slot Reds came over the rails and that the weekend brought in some large Jacks, big Reds and a few Spanish Mackerel. Thanks Tommy!

Sebastian resident Justin Thompson sent in our first photo today. Justin was drifting the inlet last Thursday night using live mullet when he landed this oversized 32" Red. It was released unharmed right after the photo. Nice catch Justin!

Our second photo features Josh Morrill with a slot Snook he landed last Thursday night. Josh's buddy Kurush Akbari was supposed to go with him, but wasn't feeling that well, so he decided to skip it. After Josh sent this photo to Kurush, he really felt sick! Sweet catch Josh!

I will be out of the office for the next two weeks. The fishing reports will be brief and probably sporadic in my absence. Thank you for your patience. Tight lines, Nedra

The State Park has a lot of activities that are ongoing or will be coming up; check their web site for more information. www.floridastateparks.org/sebastianinlet.
