Sebastian Inlet Fishing Outdoors

State Park Connecting the Indian River Lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean

Wednesday October 26, 2016

Without a doubt one of the world's finest fishing destinations, Sebastian Inlet is where America's most diverse estuary ecosystems, the Indian River Lagoon meet the Atlantic Ocean. Our inlet is an example of nature's tidal harmonics working in tandem with weather and seasons.

A veteran angler in the Sebastian Inlet will experience a smorgasbord of fishing delight from spin casters' to fly fishing purest. Lagooner's Sebastian Fishing Guides constantly fish these waters in search of snook, giant tarpon, redfish gator trout, shark, flounder and several other saltwater species. They know how to put anglers where the fish are whether you're an avid angler or novice in these productive briny waters.

Looking for information about spending a day on the water with a Sebastian Inlet fishing guide in the Indian River Lagoon or offshore fishing near Sebastian, Florida? Call (321) 868-4953 and Ask for Captain Richard or his fishing mate Captain Gina. They'll be more than glad to talk to you in length about setting up a fishing trip while you're visiting the area.

Sebastian Inlet's Fishing Guide - Captain Richard Bradley

Redfishing Guide in Sebastian Florida

Dad took me to Sebastian Inlet in the 1960's when the road was no more than a rutted dirt path on the bridge embankment to the parking lot beneath. There was a small tackle & bait shop called the Crow's Nest that had an orange crate on a pedestal and a danger sign with skull and crossbones pronouncing "Baby Rattlers... DO NOT FEED". Of course as a curious pre-teen, I had to get close enough to look thru the hardware cloth to see the deadly young snakes. Upon mustering up enough courage to peer into the crate I was confused to see plastic children's baby rattles on display and for a minute wondered why.

I spent my childhood years traveling to the inlet with my folks and friends and learning how to surf and fish while jumping the jetty rocks and swimming in the tide pool. Sebastian has since become a wonderful public park with paved parking lots, a small restaurant and campgrounds. The extension of the north jetty a few years ago ruined a once awesome surf break, but for the most part the improvements have been a vast improvement on the beauty and public access.
If you get a chance to visit our area, please look me up for a fishing trip at the Sebastian State Park Recreation Area.

God Bless,
