June is here, and if you’re looking for non-stop snook action now is the time to book a fishing charter! The flats all around Sebastian and Vero Beach, FL are producing good numbers right now. My charters this week have included catching quantities of snook in the double digits from the morning hours into late afternoon. Early in the morning we have had a lot of fun with top water action, and in the afternoon we have been pitching live shrimp and artificial plastics under docks and mangroves.

The snook and redfish bite has been great at Sebastian Inlet lately. Most of the snook and redfish are being caught by drifting live mullet or croaker on the incoming tide and the beginning of the outgoing tide. Most of the reds have been over the legal size with a few in the mix that are keepers. Snook are out of season right now, however, many of my guests have found the snook to be quite the experience to land.

The Bonita and Spanish mackerel are starting to show up off the beaches right outside of Sebastian Inlet early in the morning. We are catching them on silver diamond jigs and spoons near diving birds and bait. Schools of monster tarpon are also showing up off of the beaches. They are a little scattered right now, but as we get deeper into the summer the population will increase, however, the juvenile tarpon are thick in the creeks and rivers right now.
