Sebastian - Saltwater Fishing Report

Our Florida boat is now out of the water until next November. This was the most disappointing season we've ever experienced in 22 years of Florida fishing. The local waters were quite unproductive because of an infiltration of a confluence of (possibly) septic tank run-offs, insecticides, herbicides, and/or fertilizers from several unidentified sources. There's been an ongoing debate among local scientists and governmental agencies as to what and who is responsible for the loss of sea grass and general deterioration of fishing habitats along the central east coast of Florida. And last week there were many reports of massive fish kills from Melbourne and southward.

Although we did catch some jacks, ladyfish, trout–and the occasional redfish--when we were able to get out on the Indian River and Sebastian Inlet (always a challenge because of the almost-daily NE winds and a great deal of rain in November, December and January,) we were rarely satisfied with what we found in our usual haunts. After several decades of fishing in New York, Connecticut and Florida we've come to learn that every year can be very different from the previous one, so we're very hopeful that when we return to Sebastian next fall we'll find great improvement throughout the Treasure Coast.

We'll be leaving Florida at the end of April, and My Bonnie's Connecticut charters will begin in mid-May. We're very eager to get back on Long Island Sound. So many of our northeastern clients have complained of suffering with cabin fever, and we look forward to fishing with every one of them this summer.
