    It depends on your skill level and knowledge....

    Some catch Bluefish, Whiting, and Pompano

    Others catch catfish.....

    I've been fishing for years now so it's not really a matter of experience. The reason I'm asking is because this is my first time fishing here (I live in Miami and most of my inshore fishing has been done off on the West coast) and I'm taking one of my friends who is new to fishing. by new I mean he doesn't know anything. If you don't mind me asking, what spots have been hot lately?

    You're "heading to Sebastian Inlet... to try some beach fishing"? Can we presume you'll be on foot?

    When I've gone to Sebastian Inlet it has never been to "try some beach fishing" b/c there's over 150 miles of Atlantic beach that's closer.

    Have always fished the inlet, mostly from the north jetty fishing pier & adjacent rocks.

    Suggest instead of asking in General Fishing you try East Central section.

    It's been really slow over there recently, I will say that the beach can out produce the jetty on occasion. Try a variety of baits and bring some plugs. Best of luck

    I caught quite a few pompano on 1/4oz gold kastmasters this afternoon before the weather turned, but they were quite puny. Maybe 3 keepers out of 10-12 fish. Lost a decent flounder. No see ums were pretty brutal. Caught them on the outgoing switch. It's not time for plugs yet, you might luck into a redfish, but the water is about 10 degrees cooler than what's optimal for snook.

    You can check this site...

    If you are fishing the beach...I like the south side generally for mixed bag. There is a parking area south of the inlet most use so you don't pay park entry...there are also several beach areas north and south of the inlet such as Ambersand, Golden sands, and Bonsteel which can be good also.

    Try just north accross from White's Bait and Tackle. Fishing has been great. Decent amount of reds, flounder, snook and pompano.
