Anglers are catching snook and snapper at the Sebastian Inlet, St. Sebastian River, and the Indian River Lagoon in Sebastian, Florida. Snook season has closed and reopens on Feb. 1, 2023. Snook must be released unharmed.
Some people are talking about catching flounder, but others tell us they haven’t caught anything near the Inlet. The flounder just aren’t biting right now.
From late November, with the first cold front, and running through January, flounder move out of the Indian River through Sebastian and into the Atlantic.
Most anglers say fishing on the incoming tide at the South Jetty is where you want to be for flounder. Successful catches are using finger mullet as bait.
Andrew Knight (pictured above) caught a nice size snook at the Sebastian Inlet. He’s visiting from Richmond, Virginia. By the looks of the length of that snook, he is having a blast here in Sebastian.
