Summertime is here, and with summer comes more stable weather, lighter winds and an increased amount of baitfish in the river and around the inlet. If you keep up with us on Facebook, some of our Captain's are posting some great videos of their daily catches - if you need to be tempted - Facebook video
The Sebastian River will be one of the best places for Tarpon, both on the North and South Fork.
In the Indian River early morning you will find some of the best top water action for Trout, Red-fish and Snook (Snook is still Closed; catch and release only). Once the sun starts to get a little higher look for those fish to move of the flats and into deeper water or under docks. Jerk baits and suspending lures will be your best bet.
Sebastian Inlet the hot spots will be off the North Jetty on the outgoing tide and the South Jetty on the incoming tide. Redfish and Snook will take most any live bait with the best choice being croakers, pigfish and jumbo shrimp.
Just of the beaches Tarpon will be migrating from the south with some over the 100# mark. Smoker Kings will also be right off the beach in 30-40 ft of water.

Good Luck, Good Catching
