Summer Fishing Fun at Sebastian Florida
Friday August 18, 2017
I don't get out in with my kids enough, but when they were younger... This trip always stands out in my mind. Savannah, Mom & Mekenzie on a summer day trip at Sebastian for mangrove snapper in the flats. They limited us out in a couple of hours, got sunburned and then returned for a sunburned nap in the car home.
Look to July and August for productive mangrove snapper fishing in the shallows of the lagoon near Sebastian Inlet.

Early August can be a hit or miss with the redfish in the Mosquito Lagoon, however as the month unfolds the big breeder redfish start to group up on around the lagoons. Later in the month and into September is probably your best chance to catch a GIANT redfish with some exceeding forty pounds and ocassionally a fifty pounder can be had for the very lucky angler. Watching the redfish gather up over the weeks of August for their annual spawn is an exciting event for guides and anglers in the Mosquito Lagoon, the anticipation as these large redfish staging in the spawning areas and watching the numbers of fish in each pod grow daily into large schools aggregates is exciting. Anglers that come to our area in late August will surely enjoy catching large breeding reds in late August and into September.
I was poling up in the Pole and Troll zone of the Mosquito Lagoon the other day and took a temperature reading of 92 degrees in the flats... WOW! Ninety Two Degrees! I was suspicious about the temperature when we saw no bait nor fish until we looked in deeper waters with a little tidal movement which is not the best for sightfishing. We caught a three nice redfish and a handful of spotted seatrout to make a morning of it. I pursuaded my anglers to try the beaches the next morning where we caught five tripletail to fourteen pounds, jumped a nice tarpon and landed another tarpon in the eighty pound range. We quickly jumped offshore and landed a nice 26 pound kingfish to boot. What a fun two of days with a couple of great anglers!

Excellent experience with Captain Richard! He made it fun for the whole family even though my wife had a bit of the demon. She still had a blast and Capt. Richard put us right on the fish even when the other fishing charters were struggling to catch fish.
