Good Morning and Happy Labor to Everyone. Shop Hours today will be 6am-4pm. Here is a quick update of what has been going on this weekend.
Offshore- “Mixed Bag” is the only way to really describe the fishing offshore. A few dolphin have been caught in 250-500′ of water off Jupiter Inlet. Best bet for the dolphin is to get out and start looking and troll a of assorted spread of small jethead lures, tuna feathers, bonita strips, and squids. Out with the dolphin should be some scattered blackfin tuna, and maybe even a wahoo (although those striped beauties may be anywhere from 70-1000′ of water). Speaking of wahoo, this week coming up ahead of the full moon should be really good for them. Break out the high speed lures for one more go, get those split-tail mullet and horse ballyhoo ready, and get after them. Fish the outgoing tides, if possible, around Jupiter and Lake Worth Inlet for a chance or two at a wahoo. Depth varies, but 120-250′ is a good starting point. Snapper fishing, muttons and yellowtails mostly, has been fair for those spending the time at it. The biggest surprise has been the nice number of keeper grouper caught over the past week. Sardines, squid, ballyhoo, and bonita chunks are all good baits to put out on the bottom.
Surf/Pier/Inshore- Snook are still the main species on everyone’s mind, and for the most part they haven’t disappointed too bad. Snook fishing remains good at the Juno Pier, Jupiter and Lake Worth Inlet, and many area bridges(that is mostly a night time thing). Bait selection has been key, so be sure to stock up on a variety of fresh bait to offer those tricky linesiders. In other news inshore….well I don’t have a whole lot else to report. The Juno Pier has had a decent little push of early season Pompano and a few good size Spanish Mackerel. Doc’s Goofy Jig for the Pompano, small live bait for the Macks.
More updates as I get them!
