PLAN­NING A TRIP

Sport Fishing - - DISCOVER THE NIGHT BITE -

Se­bas­tian’s a quaint sea­side town of about 24,000 peo­ple, with plenty of pub­lic ac­cess to the In­dian River La­goon, Se­bas­tian River and open At­lantic Ocean via Se­bas­tian In­let. Sit­u­ated be­tween Co­coa Beach and Palm Beach, this unique spot is eas­ily over­looked.

WHOM TO CALL

A num­ber of dif­fer­ent cap­tains fish the area. From per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence I em­phat­i­cally rec­om­mend Capt. Glyn Austin, of Go­ing Coastal Fish­ing Char­ters. Reach him at go­ing­coastalchar­ters.com.

WHERE TO STAY

Rugged out­doors­men can camp at beach­side Se­bas­tian In­let State Park. For the rest of us, Cap­tain Hi­ram’s Re­sort (hi­rams.com) of­fers Ba­hamian-style river­front ac­com­mo­da­tions di­rectly on the In­dian River La­goon. We stayed at Cap­tain Hi­ram’s the night be­fore fish­ing and found the ac­com­mo­da­tions invit­ing and ide­ally lo­cated. The va­ca­tion spot of­fers 86 guest rooms in four dif­fer­ent ac­com­mo­da­tion styles, the Sand­bar Beach Club for live mu­sic and the Black­fins Grill for water­front din­ing, plus a full-ser­vice ma­rina.

A BREAK FROM FISH­ING

Be­sides fish­ing, Se­bas­tian of­fers nearby beaches for surf­ing, div­ing and swim­ming. Golfers can set a tee time at Se­bas­tian Mu­nic­i­pal Golf Course, Sandridge Golf Course or Habi­tat Golf Course. Or­lando and the Dis­ney at­trac­tions are just a twohour drive away.
