Sebastian, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report
Indian River Lagoon and Sebastian River

The last week has seen a great many changes and the fishing is starting to light up. The Ocean is alive with Macks,Bonita,Lg Jacks and some Tarpon.In the lagoon the Reds are on the flats and eating shallow plugs and Soft baits.The best of these was a 29" fish and a 27" fish on monday both came on Mirro lures.I have seen quite a few nice Snook and caught some med sized ones on Wed with Jason and Gage Pollard. We also caught a variety of other fish with Blues,Trout, Jacks and even a Sheepshead eating our artificials. Today I went up the St Sebastian River and saw many Tarpon and big Snook but struggled however did manage a 35-40# Snook on a DOA Shrimp. As always all fish were caught on artificial lures and flies as "using live bait makes baby Jesus Cry"
