We started inshore for the Sebastian Inlet Snook, then went offshore to bottom fish. Chris and Holly own Black Dog Bait and Tackle in Melbourne Beach. The weather was perfect today with no winds in the morning but by the afternoon it was a north. The tide in the Sebastian Inlet was outgoing till about 9 a.m. and the Snook were not biting.

Once the tide slacked we headed offshore to 60ft and slow trolled a few Pilchards. Chris caught a Bonita and Holly hooked up and landed a solid 30lb. Kingfish. The bottom was marking up really well but the bite was a little slow. Ray caught a small Mangrove and a couple small Seabass. Holly caught a decent size Nurse Shark. We also lost a nice fish on the flat line. We headed back in to the Sebastian Inlet and drifted a few times with the Pilchards and caught several Jacks. The time was about 1:30 p.m. and Holly and Chris needed to get back to the shop. Thanks Ray, Chris, and Holly it was fun fishing with you.
