Flounder, black drum, pompano and whiting are the chief catches at Sebastian Inlet according to Nedra Maxwell as she posted online on Wednesday's Sebastian Inlet District fishing report. Shrimp, dead or alive, are a great bait because they are catching all these fish and more right now. Sand fleas and clam strips fished along the beaches are catching pompano. In freshwater, the speckled perch bite has been picking up at Blue Cypress Lake for angler using small jigs and minnows.



Offshore anglers that were able to get out again this week found decent bottom fishing on the reefs in 60 to 90 feet of water. Even though catches such as black sea bass, vermilion snapper and red snapper have to be thrown back due to federal fishing laws, mangrove snapper, lane snapper, yellowtail snapper, gag grouper, amberjacks, triggerfish and kingfish are making bottom fishing worthwhile. Inshore, redfish has been best near Queens Cove or along the docks south of town.


Text Box: Fishing Report  - November 24, 2011


Capt. Brian Nelli of Pushin Water kayak fishing charters reported a good day of action for angler Rick Paulico from Connecticut. Fishing the area around Sailfish Flats during the falling tide Tuesday, they caught redfish and trout. Some of the best lures included the D.O.A. Cal with the shad tail in the Fiji chicken color. Together they landed six redfish from 18 to 26 inches and a few trout up to 19 inches. Pompano and jacks are also being caught there.



Bass fishing has been very good and will remain strong throughout the season although there may be slow periods during transitions when cold fronts pass through. Bigger bass are hitting live shiners around the grass edges so having plenty of shiners in the live well is a must. King's Bar, Indian Prairie Canal and the Monkey Box are all prime areas to find biting bass. Specks are also biting better with the longer, cooler nights when some of the best fishing for them can be enjoyed. Jigs and live minnows are the best offerings.
