Steve, Justin, and Sara
Steve is a good friend of mine. His friends Justin and Sara from N.Y. were in town. We met at the Inlet Marina in the morning. The tide in the Sebastian Inlet was outgoing till 12 p.m. We caught plenty of bait and headed to the Inlet. The weather was nice till about 9 a.m. then the winds picked up. The fishing was slow. Justin hooked up first and landed a big Redfish which we safely released. A few minutes later Sara hooked up and landed a big Snook which we also safely released. That was pretty much it. I think we might have a couple of more bites but no luck. Once the tide slowed down we decided to call it quits. It was pleasure to meet and fish with you Justin and Sara.
Brad, Joey, and John
Brad used to live locally and fish with me occasionally until he moved to North Carolina a couple of years ago. He was back in town for his son David’s wedding(congrats David) and wanted to take his grandson’s John and Joey fishing for the day. Well the weather was perfect, The tide was incoming. We started off the afternoon drifting the Sebastian Inlet catching a few Jacks. The Snook were marking up big time so we anchored up and fished for a bit. John hooked up and landed a big Red.
We decided to run the beach to the Spanish Mackerel. Joey and John had a blast catching the Spanish. Again, almost every cast was a hook up. Great action for the boys. Great to see kids get so excited about fishing, one of the times that I truly love my job. With a cooler full of Spanish we went back to the Inlet for the last hour before dark. The Snook were still there marking thick but no luck. We were catching Jacks one after another though. With it getting dark and no baits left we headed in. Thanks Brad for thinking of me and bringing your grandkids fishing. It was great to see you again. Take care and enjoy your winter in the mountains.
Mike, Laura, Ken, and Chrissy
The weather was beautiful. The Snook and Red fishing was really slow. The tide in the Sebastian Inlet was outgoing till 11 a.m. We fished for the Snook and Reds first then decided to give up and run the beach in search of the Spanish Mackerel. We found the Spanish and Bluefish were mixed in. We spent about an hour casting spoons and small jigs on light tackle. We must of caught a couple of dozen of each, Bluefish and Spanish. Pretty much every cast they hooked up. After a cooler full of fish we spent the last hour trying for the Snook and Reds again but still no luck. It was still a great day on the water. You just can’t beat this weather for mid November. Thanks again Mike, Laura, Ken, and Chrissy for fishing with me. It is always a good time.
Phil and Sam
This was Phil and Sam’s first fishing trip aboard the Attitude Adjustment. They recently moved to Melbourne Beach. We departed from the Inlet Marina around 7 a.m. The Tide was outgoing. I had plenty of baits ready to go. The bite was really slow. We caught a couple of Jacks and then decided to break and wait for the beginning of the outgoing tide around 4:30 p.m.
We met back up around 4 p.m. and headed straight to fishing. We had to wait about 30 minutes but when it turned on, it turned on! Sam and Phil were busy pulling in Reds and Snook one after another. Once it started to get dark it was time to call it quits. They ended up with 2 nice Keeper Snook and a keeper Redfish. What a great bite. Thanks Phil and Sam for your support. It was a pleasure to meet you both.
Gary fished with me last month and we had a great trip. So the pressure was on to have another good one. The tide is outgoing in the morning till about 10 a.m. The next outgoing started around 4 p.m. We decided to fish both outgoing tides. Bait has not been an issue. The Snook and Redfish have been feeding on Pinfish. The morning bite was a little slow. Gary caught one Redfish and a few Jacks.
We took a break for a few hours and started back at 4 p.m. Once the tide started to go out again the bite was on. The Snook and Redfish were eating as quick as you could get bait out. Gary caught several Snook, a few were keeper size the others were too big. Gary also caught several Redfish. The bite was as good as it gets. I even got to catch a couple of fish. It was a great day and a lot of fun. Thanks again Gary for fishing with me. Hope you enjoy the fresh Snook and hopefully we will fish together again next spring.
John, Gay, Dana, and Cathy
We had a great day yesterday. I picked John, Gay, Dana, and Cathy up at there dock at 11 a.m. We went and caught some Croakers, they were not thick but we did catch a few. The Sebastian Inlet tide started to go out around 12 p.m. The bite was on, John hooked up first and landed a nice Keeper Snook. Gay landed the next keeper Snook. Cathy was upfront in the boat hooking up Redfish after Redfish, she managed to get a keeper Redfish as well. We had a few misses and Released a handful of Snook. With no Croakers left and the storms approaching it was time to head back. It was a great day of fishing with great people. I always enjoy fishing with John and his wife Gay. Thank you again!!!
Jessie and Tiffany
Jessie and his wife Tiffany. Jessie has fished a few times with me before. This was Tiffany’s first time. We met up at the Inlet Marina at 1 p.m. The weather was perfect and I had some baits ready to go. The tide was outgoing and we headed straight to fishing. After about 30 mins of fishing with no hits it was like a flip of the switch because for the next 3 hours it was non-stop Redfish after Redfish. They must of caught about 20 Reds plus between the two. They even caught one keeper. Thanks again Jessie for fishing with me and it was nice to meet your wife Tiffany. Hope she had fun(with sore arms)as well. Good luck in Virginia hope all works out. See you next time !
Anthony, Kate, Avery, Eli, and Owen
Anthony, Kate, Avery, Eli, and Owen are from Kansas and were here on vacation. The weather was really nice today. The wind calmed down and the sun was shining. The Sebastian Inlet tide was incoming till about 10:00 a.m. Once we arrived and started fishing there were shortage of Jacks. Eli had the hot hand at first catching the first 3 fish. They continued to catch a bunch. After awhile we decided to go and try for some croakers. No luck on the croakers but we did get some nice pigs. We anchored up at the Inlet but never got a hit. We decided to move in and try jigging for some Flounder. They caught a handful of small Flounder, one of the fish that Avery caught was a decent keeper. It was a nice morning fishing with a really nice family. Thanks again Anthony and Kate for coming fishing with me. Hopefully, we will fish again in the future!
John and Angela
John and his wife Angela. The weather was windy and the ocean is really choppy, but the sun is shining and it feels good out. We met up at the Inlet Marina and decided to just go out for a bit and play in the Sebastian Inlet. The tide was incoming till about 10 a.m. The Jacks were in a feeding frenzy. John and Angela were catching them on live bait, jigs, top-water, and spoons. Pretty much anything we threw at them. once the tide switched it got to rough to fish in the mouth of the inlet. We moved to the back and John caught a big Bluefish before we decided to call it quits. Thanks John and Angela for fishing with me. Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip, Happy Anniversary!
