Special Note... Monday April 2nd we will be closing at 5PM
OFFSHORE- Wind and rough ocean conditions have kept reports to a minimum this week. Looks like it is shaping up to be a fair weekend offshore though. Could see a very good dolphin bite in 200-400' of water from Palm Beach to Jupiter Inlet. Trolling small ballyhoo, bonita strips, and sqDuid will all be good choices for the dolphin. Sailfish are still hanging around in the same areas. Expect the kingfish to show up in pretty good numbers at almost anytime. No bottom fishing reports to write about, but that will change with improving weather conditions.
INSHORE- Snook fishing remains very good inshore right now. The bigger snook are biting mullet, big swibaits, and swimming plugs well right now. Live shrimp and smaller swimbaits are working well for getting lots of snook bites. Good numbers of jacks cruising seawalls in the ICW right now. Still seeing a good number of sheepshead and some black drum around; both are eating live shrimp well.
SURF/PIER- Pompano fishing has been good when conditions allow. Sandfleas, clams, and fishbites are the top baits for the pompano. The bluefish action has started to slow, but is starting to be filled in with the arrival of some snook along the beach. Croakers and whiting are biting well in the first trough on small pieces of fresh shrimp.
