OFFSHORE- Wind and a rough ocean kept a bulk of the boats at the dock this week; and unfortunately it doesn't look a whole lot better for the weekend coming up either. Those who do make it offshore should expect to see some dolphin in 150-300' of water. The last few cold fronts should have also helped to push some more sailfish down our way. Boats targeting the sails are starting to see multiple fish a day, and it won't be long before somebody strings up a double digit day of releases. Snapper fishing has remained strong, with some nice mutton and yellowtail snappers being caught. Cobia are mixed in with the snapper as well.
INSHORE- This week saw a surprising number of mullet around inshore still, and the snook and big jacks were more than happy to see them. Inshore action remains best early morning, late afternoon, and at night(especially for the snook). The flats around Munyon Island are really starting to produce some good numbers of fish. Ladyfish, jacks, bluefish, small snook, and a few trout are all hanging around the grassflats. Live shrimp under a cork, DOA shrimp, or a small swimbait are all good choice on the flats right now. The Hobe Sound flats are also producing some good numbers of fish as well.
SURF/PIER- Lots of good action along the beach right now. The next wave of bluefish showed up with the last cold snap. Spanish Mackerel are scattered up and down the beach in fair numbers, and more than willing to bite a small clark spoon or glass minnow jig. Pompano action was fair this week as well. Throwing the Doc's Goofy Jig at the Juno Beach Pier early in the morning seems to produce at least a few pompano daily. Good numbers of small jacks along the beach right now. Blacktip sharks are also around in good numbers.
SHOP UPDATE- We will be CLOSED on Thanksgiving Day.
Open at 6AM on "Black Friday"
Lots of GOOD DEALS on GOOD STUFF next Friday!
OFFSHORE- Dolphin bite has been on fire the last few days. Good dolphin reports coming out of both Palm Beach(Lake Worth) and Jupiter Inlets, with 150-300' of water producing good numbers of fish. Most of the fish are in the 5-10lb range, but a few true gaffers are in the mix as well. Trolling ballyhoo or drifting livebaits should both produce bites from the dolphin. Sailfish are also mixed in with the dolphin in fair numbers. Boats targeting the sails are seeing at least a few fish a day, with some getting five or six shots. In on the 120' ledge and shallower the cobia are around in fair numbers. A lot of the cobes are on the small side, but there are also some really nice cobia in the mix as well. Snapper fishing remains very good, with some very nice muttons being caught out of Jupiter Inlet. Sardines remain the top bait for enticing a big fat mutton to bite.
INSHORE- Snook action is still good for those putting the time in. A lot of the snook are pulling back into their more traditional "winter" homes. Look for the snook to be further up the Intracoastal and Loxahatchee river. It is transition time for the snook diet wise. Look for the snook to move away from the bigger baits and more readily attack shrimp and smaller baits. Lots of jacks along the seawalls inshore right now to bend a rod. Action around Munyon Island slowed just a bit this week.
SURF/PIER- Pompano fishing picked up in the last couple of days, with some good catches coming from the Juno Bech Pier and surrounding beaches. Look for the Goofy Jig to produce well from the pier and sandfleas to be the best bet from the beach. Spanish Mackerel have been scattered up and down the beach, and willing to bite small spoons and gotcha lures very well. Lots of sharks and jacks cruising the beach for those looking for something bigger to pull on!
SHOP UPDATE- Still plugging away at our "Black Friday" and "Small Business Saturday" specials. Lots of goods stuff in the works, so keep us in mind for some of your holiday shopping (or just for your own restocking!)

OFFSHORE- Should be a fishy weekend offshore, but it is also going to (at least according to the weather as of now...) be on the bumpier side. Look for Friday and Saturday to be the nicer days, and then Sunday to be on the rougher side. With north winds in the forecast the sailfish action should be good. Look for the best action to be between 150'-300' of water out of both Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlets for the sailfish. Dolphin action should be good in the same areas as well. Kitefishing with live goggle eyes or blue runners should produce some bites from both the sails and dolphin, as will trolling with small naked ballyhoo on monofilament leaders. Bottom fishing has been very good in 80-120' of water, again out of both Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlets. Snapper make up the bulk of the catches, with some nice yellowtail and muttons being caught. Mixed in with the snapper have been some very nice Cobia as well. Sardines and squid remain the top producing baits for bottom fishing.
INSHORE- Snook fishing is still good right now, especially at night around the bridges with deeper channels close by. The snook are switching over from mullet to shrimp, but will not refuse one over the other right now. Throwing a big swimbait or jig will produce bites, as will a DOA or live shrimp. Look for the outgoing tide to be the most productive for the snook. Flats fishing continues to improve with the changing weather. Munyon Island is starting to produce a few spotted seatrout catches, and the Hobe Sound flats are showing signs of live as well. Live shrimp or the Vudu Shrimp are both great choices for fishing the flats right now.
SURF/PIER- The Juno Beach Pier is holding a good number of fish right now; with spanish mackerel, bluefish, and pompano all being caught on almost a daily basis. The same species are being caught up and down the beach as well. The spanish mackerel are still falling for the bobber rig with a clark spoon, gotcha plugs, and crappie jigs. Bluefish are readily striking silver spoons and cutbait fished on the bottom. The pompano are biting goofy jigs on the pier, and sandfleas from the beach the best right now. Jacks have been hanging around Jupiter Inlet, as have a handful of snook still. Plenty of sharks around right now as well.
QUICK NOTE- We will be having some great "Black Friday" and "Small Business Saturday" specials this year. Can't let all of the details out just yet, but you won't want to miss this one. If you've had your eye on any of our custom rods, been thinking about having a rod built, use any of the following lures....DOA, Gator Spoons, Doc's Goofy Jig, X-Raps, Yo-Zuri then stay tuned and check back for more info!
Reports of some pompano being caught off the Juno Beach Pier are coming in. The water (at time of writing at least) has good color, and the pompano are biting goofy jigs pretty good right now. No hot color to report at this time.
OFFSHORE- In the spirit of the Halloween weekend...it looks like anybody wanting to get offshore this weekend is facing a trick instead of a treat! A pretty strong cool front is going to have the wind blowing up out of the northwest and the ocean looks like it will be on the rougher side. Anyone able to sneak out should find a good bite on the sailfish, and most likely some dolphin as well. Look for the sails and dolphin to be along the edge in 100-200' of water. It'll be rough, but it will be great conditions for sailfish. Be careful and don't push the limits of what your boat can comfortably handle. Cobia made a nice showing this week along the edge. Look for the cobia to be following the sharks or hanging around wrecks this time of year. Snapper fishing remained very good this week, with a nice mixed bag of muttons and yellowtail snapper being caught out of Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlets.
INSHORE- Snook fishing is slowing down just a bit but overall remains good. Look for the snook to be following the last schools of mullet around; and really beginning to fill into their more traditional late fall/winter homes. Bridges with good current and deep water channels will remain very good spots to look for the snook. As the mullet thin out, live shrimp(or shrimp style lures) will begin to be the key baits for snook. Flats fishing around Munyon Island continues to improve. LIve shrimp will be a good bet for catching a nice mixed bag of species along the flats now.
SURF/PIER- Still seeing a lot of action along the beach right now. Pompano fishing remains very good for this time of year. From the beach the pompano are biting sandfleas the best; the Juno Beach Pier pompano have a taste for Goofy Jigs and clams it seems. Spanish mackerel action is also very good at the Juno Beach Pier, especially early and in dirty water conditions. Small X-Raps, crappie jigs, clark spoons(w/ the bobber rig), and gotcha plugs are all catching the mackerel right now. Scattered reports of a few redfish along the beach right now as well. Bluefish action remains good. Cut bait and silver spoons will work well for the bluefish.
Good Luck Everyone

OFFSHORE- The ocean forecast is not the nicest you'll ever see, but the forecasted north-northeast winds should help fire up the fishing. The dolphin have still been around in fair numbers from 150-400' of water out of both Jupiter and Palm Beach Inlets. Look for the dolphin to be around bait schools, floating debris, current rips, and weedlines. Trolling an assortment of small ballhoo and trolling feathers is a good bet for the dolphin right now, and will also spark the interest of any blackfin tuna that are around. The blackfin tuna have been in 250-350' of water between Jupiter and Palm Beach Inlets; with most of the fish ranging from 2-5lbs. Smaller trolling feathers, jethead lures, and daisy chains are the best bet for the blackfin. While they are not around in big numbers, a few wahoo will be hanging around the schools of blackfin tuna. Sailfish action continues to improve, with those targeting them starting to regularly see a couple of fish a day. Livebaiting in 100-200' of water out of both Jupiter and Palm Beach Inlets should raise a sailfish. Snapper action remains fair, especially when you can get past the triggerfish. The driftboats are reporting fair mutton catches and some nice yellowtail snapper as well.
INSHORE- While not fully done, the mullet run is starting to wind down. This is a dynamite time to go snook fishing, especially if you like throwing lures for them. The snook are still actively feeding(especially at night), but now don't have quite as much bait to choose from. Look for the snook to be active during low light periods and around the tide changes. Flats fishing has been improving, with good reports starting to come from around Munyon Island and the Hobe Sound FLats. Spotted Seatrout are starting to show back up in fair numbers, as are the usual fall/winter species. Jacks, ladyfish, and a few pompano will keep action fairly steady on the flats right now.
SURF/PIER- LOTS of good action along the beach right now. Bluefish are around in very good numbers from Jupiter Island to Palm Beach, and are more than willing to eat just about anything. Spanish Mackerel are showing up in good numbers as well. Look for the mackerel to be anywhere form Jupiter INlet down to Singer Island. Clark spoons, glass minnow style jigs, and the "bobber rig" are all good choices for the mackerel. Pompano fishing has been very good for this time of year. Lots of small pompano, but plenty of keepers as well for those spending the time on the beach. Sharks (mainly spinners and blacktip) are also showing up in fair numbers along the beach as well. A fresh chunk of bait is most likely not going to be ignored b a passing shark right now.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

Offshore- It's looking like a very fishy weekend coming up! Weather forecast looks beautiful and the ocean should have just enough chop from the forecasted north winds to really get the fish fired up. Dolphin fishing remained fair offshore this week, and should be good into the weekend. Look for the dolphin to be in 200-400' of water out of Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlet. Trolling ballyhoo, bonita strips, or squid will be a good bet for the dolphin. Be sure to keep a couple small trolling feathers out as well for the small blackfin tuna that have been around. Mainly "football" size, the blackfin tuna are also in the 200-400' depth range as well. Sailfish action should be good this weekend as more and more of the seasonal sails show up. Look for the sailfish to be in the 100-300' depth range, with both Jupiter and Palm Beach having some fish. Trolling a spread of naked ballyhoo or kitefishing with livebaits will both be effective for getting some sailfish bites. Snapper fishing remains good out of both Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlets. Scattered muttons, nice yellowtails, and a few mangrove snapper are keeping things interesting along the bottom. As your on the way offshore keep an eye out for any mullet schools that may have been pushed offshore into 30-60' of water. They could be holding good numbers of dolphin, sails, and kingfish....and they are easy targets at that point!
INSHORE- Lots of bait inshore right now, and lots of fish in them! Snook fishing remains very good at night around the area bridges, tarpon are still following the schools of finger mullet, and our winter species are showing back up along area grassflats. Look for the flats fishing to continue to improve as the weather continues to slowly cool off. Until we get a big cold front, the best fishing times will still be the lower light periods of the day. The flats around Munyon Island and Hobe Sound should be holding fish now, so go get after them!
SURF/PIER- Lots of action along the beach right now! Still some schools of mullet coming down the beach with some tarpon and maybe a few snook in them. Good numbers of bluefish are providing quick action for those throwing silver spoons or fishing cutbait on the bottom. Schools of spanish mackerel are around, and the numbers of macs should only increase as the weather cools. Pompano fishing has been good for this time of year, but a lot of the pompano are on the smaller side. Lots of action on the beach right now, time to go fishing!
Good Luck Everyone,
"Early October and the northern pomps haven't arrived! Don't sweat it because of improved water quality local Florida pompano left the reefs to feed with the North East Swells. This week the white floats ruled but as suspended beach sand murks it up be prepared to utilize the chartreuse colors. To improve your catches anglers should improve their arsenals. Stock both colors and change it up just you like you would when using Goofy jigs. Tight Lines ....Pompano Rich" (http://www.pompanorich.com/)
