Summer on the Attitude Adjustment. Sebastian Inlet is a great place to visit and fish during summer. The weather has been lousy the past 2 weeks, lots of rain and wind. The water temp has also been cold in areas. Seems a little early for the cold water and bait has been difficult. Hopefully things change soon! We have had some decent catches though the past month, just having to work a little harder. I have recently purchased a bigger boat to start running some offshore bottom fishing trips, so check back for updates. Hope everyone has a great summer and be safe! Thanks again to everyone who continues to fish with and support attitudefishing.
Permit fishing with attitude. With a day off I invited my friend John to go fish with me. We headed down to Ft. Pierce to fish around the boils. I had Crabs and Croakers ready to go. The weather was nice, a little south wind but was very light. We caught a handful of Mutton Snapper that were around 18 inches. We also caught 6 Permit between the two of us. John caught a big Snook and a cobia that was just short. It was a very productive day. Lots of fun to just go fish with a good friend. Plus some good eats to bring home.
John and Taylor
Permit fishing aboard the Attitude Adjustment. It is that time of year again! The weather was nice in the morning. The winds picked up around 11 a.m. The bite also happened at 11 when Taylor hooked up and landed a nice Permit. The winds were starting to blow pretty hard S.E. so we decided to call it quits and head back in before it was to rough. It was a short and sweet trip. As soon as the weather straightens up it is time to do some Permit fishing.
Bob and Claudia
Bob and Claudia were interested in trying there luck and skill on Permit. We met up in the morning at the Inlet Marina. We stopped in the Inlet and netted a few crabs for bait. The weather was perfect, sunny and calm. Once we arrived at the spot and started fishing we had a few good bites. We lost a good Snook and caught a good Snook. We also had a Goliath have his way. Claudia caught a nice size Sheephead.
The current switched a bit and we had to reposition our anchor. The bite was slow for the next couple of hours. Then finally Bob’s Permit bite came and he did a good job of getting to the rod and setting the hook. For the next 20 mins. the Permit made several runs before I was able to put a net on it. It was 29lbs. A solid fish and a very memorable catch. Thanks Bob and Claudia, it was a pleasure to meet and fish with you. I hope you enjoy all the fresh fish!
Islam and Friends
Islam and his friends are from O-town. The contacted me about catching Permit. We left the Inlet marina around 8 a.m. The tide was outgoing in the Sebastian Inlet, which made Crabs easy. We headed straight to the spot and passed tons of schools of little Bonita and some Spanish. Once we started fishing Islam hooked up first. He had the fish on for about 10 mins. and was really close to landing it. The Permit was big, but it is now a fish story. The bite was a little slow. They managed to hook up two more fish and landed them both. 33lbs. and 24 lbs. Both respectable fish. We looked for the Spanish on the way back to the Sebastian Inlet but no luck. Thank you Islam to you and your friends for fishing aboard the Attitude Adjustment. Hope to see you guys again.
John and Charlie
I had a free day so I invited John from Whitey’s and His friend Charlie who was in town visiting. We decided to run and check out if the Permit were still hanging around. The weather was perfect. The tide was outgoing in the morning. Crabs were pretty easy to get. Once we got the spot, things were slow for awhile. I was first to hook up and land a nice Permit. It went 20lb. range. It was pretty slow from then to when Charlie got his bite. He did a great job of fighting and landing his first Permit, the fish weighed 32lbs. It was a solid Permit. He also caught a big Cuda. What a fun day of fishing and not having the pressure.
Another great day aboard the Attitude Adjustment. Edgar is From Texas and has fished with me a few times in the past. Weather was nice. The tide was outgoing in the morning till about 9 a.m. We scooped up some crabs in the morning and headed to the Permit spot. The bite was a little slow for the first hour. Then it happened and Edgar hooked up his first Permit. He did a great job of fighting it and landed his first Permit ever which was 24lbs. We missed a few more because of bad line(my bad). Then he got his second Permit which was around 15lbs. With the winds picking up we decided to head back to the Sebastian Inlet. Thanks Edgar, for fishing with me again it was a pleasure. Hope you enjoy your cook-out.
Richard and Charlie
Richard and his Son Charlie are from Philly. They fish with me a few times a year. We started off in the morning in the Sebastian Inlet fishing for the big Sebastian Redfish. We had no problem getting crabs. The first hour of the outgoing tide we seen several big Redfish rolling. Just never could get the right timing to get hooked up. After about an hour the Reds stopped showing themselves.
We decided to go for some Permit. It took a little bit to get hooked up but once we got in the groove we went 3 for 3. A 20lb. ,22lb, and a 26 lb. The bite was on. We could of caught more but they were spent, lol. We released all 3 fish to fight again another day. The weather was just perfect today, with the storms holding out till the evening. Thanks Richard and Charlie, I really enjoy fishing with you two. Good luck Charlie with starting college. Don’t have too much fun!

Chris and Dean
Chris and Dean fished with me last year. We had a great Snook bite last year. This year it was time to try something different. We fished the past two days. The weather has been decent in the mornings. Rain storms in the afternoon has pushed us in a little early. The first day we went bottom fishing. The bite was decent but we were just having one of those days. They caught a few nice fish and lost a few more. Wednesday we went Permit fishing. Thankfully the day went much better. Dean started off with a hot hand, landing the first two Permit. Dean got a nice Sheepshead and also landed a couple of Permit. Dean had the biggest of the day which went 20lbs. It was a good couple of days of fishing with two cool guys. Thanks Chris and Dean it was a pleasure fishing with you again.
