Sebastian Inlet Fishing Charter
Jack Crevelle the Hardest Fighting Fish
"My arms are sore from that last one!" Shouted Doug Sanders after bringing in an 18 pound Jack Crevalle on light spinning tackle. "Let's do it again!"
Doug and Captain Richard Bradley had an exceptional day catching and releasing too many fish to count including tarpon, jack crevalle, spotted seatrout, spanish mackeral and more.
Topping off the day, Doug caught a 32 inch spotted seatrout that was well over ten pounds, a life-time achievement for many anglers and a memory he'll take with him for the rest of his life.
Sebastian Inlet and it's surrounding waterways both inshore and offshore are some of the richest angling opportunities on the eastern seaboard of the United States. Changing tides, water flow and abundant sealife make this portal into the Atlantic Ocean from the Indian River Lagoon a must for the fishing enthusiast. Don't take our word for it! Come on down and give it a try!

Jack Crevalle are a beautiful color of bluish-green to greenish-gold on their backs and have silvery or yellowish bellies. The Jack's soft dorsal and anal fins are almost identical in size and they have a prominent black spot on the gill cover. They also have a black spot at the base of each pectoral fins and no scales on the throat.
Jacks are common in both INSHORE waters and the open sea. They seem to show up anywhere and everywhere but more often where there's plenty of food or baitfish around. Look for schools of jacks turning the water yellow or finning as they circle near the surface of the water. Jacks will travel into fresh or brackish water and are often seen in springs that lead into the ocean.
One of the memorable catches for a saltwater angler is their first Jack. The crevalle tend to stay inshore or near offshore and can be caught in both salt and freshwater rivers around florida and other southern states. Jacks are often seen under diving birds making a commotion on the water surface while feeding on bait. Jacks tolerate a wide range of salinities; schools corner a school of baitfish at the surface and feed with commotion that can be seen at great distances; feeds mainly on small fish; peak spawning occurs OFFSHORE from March through September.
No limit or size regulation.

May - 2017 Fishing Report
May - 2017 Fishing Forecast
May in Central Florida is the beginning of great things for people looking toward an ocean fishing trip looking for fast action. King Mackerel, Cobia and even a few tarpon start to make a showing as May develops into a more summer like pattern. Inshore the fishing can be productive for early morning and evening anglers as the sun warms the gin clear waters of the Mosquito Lagoon and the Banana Rivers. Both Redfish and Spotted Sea Trout will be a popular gamefish that even the youngest anglers will appreciate and enjoy. Bring plenty of sunscreen, some polarized sunglasses and broadbill hat as the Florida sunshine will penetrate the most protected boating endeavors. May is the beginning of the summer in Florida as far as the temperatures are concerned, but there's often an afternoon shower, so be prepared to fish early and get off the water before the afternoon storms roll in. So remember, inshore fishing and offshore fishing are an equal opportunity in May in Central Florida.
