008Edgar and Megan went fishing with me last year. They are from Texas. Karla and Andrew are relatives and it was there first trip with me. The tide in the inlet was low at 11:00 a.m. We met up at Sebastian Inlet boat ramp in the morning. Croakers were not a problem, we managed to catch enough bait for the day in about 30 minutes. The weather was calm, sunny, and of course hot! We fished the Inlet for a bit. The bite was good when we pulled up. Megan and Karla each caught a couple of nice Snook. Edgar caught a big Redfish. Then the bite shut down. The river water on the outgoing is super dirty from all the recent rain. On our way down the beach we ran into some bait pods of greenies. Good to see the white bait around again.

Edgar and Andrew caught a few Barracuda’s on live baits. Andrew also caught a Bonita and on when the fish got close to the boat a Bull Shark attacked it. We spotted a few Cobia’s traveling with the Shark. Let’s just say that the girls can fish. Karla was first to put a Cobia in the boat. It was just short. The next Cobia was Megan’s. I give her mad props, because she was persistent with the bucktail and it paid off. She hooked a a nice 19lb. keeper. It was pretty impressive. Well the storms were building and it was time to run back in. It was a fun day. We had tons of action. Thanks again Edgar and Megan for fishing with attitude! See you next year!
