Sebastian Inlet Fishing Guides
Sebastian Inlet Fishing Guides are a strange and rare breed of outdoorsmen. Several snook species require in-depth fishing during the mid-night hours studying tides, moon phases, and weather. Inlet fishing requires a skilled Captain with understanding, knowledge, and passion when fishing Sebastian Inlet at night. Inshore fishing for all snook species requires a qualified guide and talented angler.
There are four primary species of snook in Florida, but only two species can frequent Sebastian Inlet. The Fat Snook and the larger Common Snook are the most targeted by anglers at Sebastian. Most fishermen don’t know the difference between snook and merely discard the smaller “fat snook” as a little catch.
Inshore Snook Fishing
All snook species can be caught inshore around mangroves, islands and shallow water grass beds. Snook like shelter, structures like docks, timber or bridges are their haunts. Snook are ambush feeders and will wait in the shadows looking for opportunities. They also use a structure for shelter and often use their power and wit to find it after being hooked up.
Most snook fishermen use live bait for these smart, wary game fish. Artificials will work well with the skilled angler having an excellent presentation. Snook are smart and don’t often fall for a poorly presented lure.
If you are looking for Sebastian Inlet Fishing Guides that are qualified to find snook species inshore and around the inlet, Lagooner Fishing Guides and Captain Richard Bradley have decades of experience helping anglers hook up.
Captain Richard cut his teeth at Sebastian Inlet during the 1970’s while night fishing. He routinely pursues snook with his anglers in the backcountry during the day and the inlet at night. Night fishing is not for everyone and requires knot tying knowledge and a certain level of skill from the angler. Most night fishing is done during the fall from September thru mid-December when tides calculated and fishing is planned and well thought out beforehand. Scheduling trips can be difficult and tedious for both angler and guide. Having a contingency plan for adverse conditions is wise.
