The Sebastian River Area, located along the Central East Coast of Florida, offers the avid fisherman a variety of challenges from freshwater fishing to deep-sea adventures. Surrounded by diverse waterways, the Sebastian River Area emerged as a small fishing village in the late 1890’s. Fishermen flock to Sebastian Inlet, the premier saltwater fishing spot on Florida's east coast, to fish its jetties for snook, redfish, bluefish, flounder, snapper, grouper, sheepshead, permit, whiting, blues, Spanish mackerel, and various species of shark. If deep –sea fishing is your addiction, then steer east of Sebastian Inlet into the Atlantic Ocean and you’ll find various sportfish such as dolphin, tuna, swordfish, grouper, snapper, wahoo, kingfish, sailfish, cobia, barracuda, amberjack and other challenging catches.
Not only is the Sebastian River Area known for its great offshore fishing but its waterways also offer some of the best inshore fishing. The Indian River Lagoon, North America’s most biologically diverse estuary, and the St. Sebastian River which is brackish contain species such as snook, redfish, trout, tarpon, and much more. Just west of Sebastian in the City of Fellsmere, you’ll find thousands of acres of freshwater wilderness known for world famous bass fishing.
