Capt. Terry Wildey of Big Easy charters out of Capt Hiram’s Resort in Sebastian has been steering clients this week to catches of mangrove snapper, lane snapper, triggerfish, amberjacks, kingfish and catch and release red snapper. There have been some cobia around in 40 to 60 feet of water so have a pitch rod rigged up if heading offshore. Inshore, the best action at Sebastian Inlet has been on bluefish and Spanish mackerel in the top part of the water column. The best trout fishing is south of the Alma Lee Loy Bridge in Vero Beach on the flats east of the channel.
Robert Pruitt of IndianRiverLagoonWaterfrontCottages.com said the inshore fishing in the lagoon is highlighted by schools of redfish. Pruitt said they seem to be everywhere and are taking live bait available from Dave’s Live Baits in the inlet. Fish the mangrove shorelines around the islands north of North Causeway. The inlet area is a good place to catch Spanish mackerel, bluefish, tarpon and big snook. Offshore, Pruitt said to plan a trip to Bethel Shoal with a box of sardines for snapper. Trolling ballyhoo will be the best way to find dolphin and kingfish near the shoal.
