Sebastian Inlet Fishing Report: 1/2/2015



We ended 2014 on a strong note. The daytime, live bait, snook bite has been good in Sebastian Inlet due to the warmer than normal weather and the calm winds. At night the snook, redfish and Tarpon have been feeding in Sebastian Inlet as well on artificial baits. The blues, mackerel and jacks have been very thick and are tough to get away from whether using live or artificial baits.

Nearshore, there has been a lot of Manta Rays and nearshore from Melbourne Beach to Vero but very few have had Cobia on them. We have also jumped a few big tarpon that were on bait pods off Vero Beach using lil jon’s rigged on vmc jig heads and Hogy lures.



Inshore fishing from Melbourne Beach Wabasso has been pretty good with more bait in the water since the water temps are very warm. The bite has been pretty good for trout, Refish, Snook, pompano, jacks and some bluefish. The best Pompano bite has been around Sebastian Inlet and the flats and spoil islands around the inlet. Pompano jigs and subsurface baits have been the best baits for targeting the schooling fish and we have caught a few bonefish in the mix as well. Slot size Redfish have been along the mangroves and on the flats in Vero Beach and around Sebastian Inlet in good numbers as well. Live bait has accounted for the bigger fish but we have caught several good fish on the Lil Jon and Storm Twitch Stick.

Please let me know if you need any more info.
