These are some snook [and one red 37"...got a 50" but I can't find the pic. I think biglures has it somewhere] I got the last 2 trips to sebastien inlet while I was in Florida. Incredible fishery. Nothing like incoming tide, 1 am on the catwalk, you and 3 laotians running back and forth over and around each other trying to keep your fish off the fender. Dem snook eez smawt. I hope to go down this summer when the big females are in. My buddy Rodney had 2 he couldn't turn the other night, and has taken fish down there to 50", on artificials. these were caught on big bucktails thrown into the current and presented just ticking the bottom. Takes a little practice but once you get it, and the fish are there, it's so much fun.











....apparently Rodney says the same approach works for the stripers up here below the dams...to the tune of 20 fish days between 20-40 pounds, and his biggest is 55 pounds. I think that was at Loudon though, but he's done well at Cordell and Melton. I hope to find out first hand real soon...

The snook btw, ran between 38-42". WAY too big for the slot. There were a few guys down there that were MASTERS at nailing that slot. I got one one time that was 27 1/2" no matter how hard I pinched the tail...28-32"...


And just to make it clear, Spoonplugging helped me catch these fish. But I didn't use spoonplugs. It was the knowledge and the application of the right tackle.

I'm sorry, I know this is a Tn fishing forum, but I thought some people might enjoy seeing this. Seriously if you're ever down in Florida, check out sebastien inlet. I'll be happy to give you any info, but I can tell you...you better go after dark.

My parnets live in Sebastian.Too many people fish the inlet already.Quit trying to LURE more down there.
I like the inlet but hate the crowds that show up sometimes.
I've become a RiverRat the last few years running the river and fishing around the islands.
I usally plan my trip in Jan or Dec then in the Spring.
Thanks for posting .

Can't tell you how many snook I've caught in and around that inlet. Spent a lot of my youth between that inlet and Fort Pierce inlet. One of the best fish you will ever eat. Sure do miss saltwater fishin sometimes.
