"Small Business Saturday" Specials All Day!
OFFSHORE- Not much to report, as weather still has just about everybody at the dock. The few boats that made it out saw some sails and scattered dolphin. Hopefully we see a little improvement in the weather today.
INSHORE- Munyon Island produced a few fish yesterday. LIve shrimp under a cork should get noticed by the jacks, ladyfish, snook, and trout that are hanging around. Still seeing snook in good numbers around the bridges at night.
SURF/PIER- Pompano reports trickled in yesterday. A few pomps were caught on the Juno Beach Pier, along Juno Beach, and north along Jupiter Island. No big numbers, but spending some time on the beach should get you a couple pompano bites from the sound of things. Fair action on the bluefish.
We'll let you know if anything starts really snapping.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL OF OUR GREAT CUSTOMERS, FRIENDS, AND FAMILIES!
OFFSHORE- Weather kept just about everybody at the dock most of the week. Those that braved the rough conditions found some sailfish. Sails were scattered from 90-180' of water out of Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlets. Livebaits (goggle eyes and blue runners) under the kite will be the best bet for getting bites south of Jupiter Inlet. From Jupiter Inlet north trolling small naked ballyhoo will start to become the main tactic for raising sails (pulling a dredge or two will further increase your odds!). Mixed in with the sailfish will be a few scattered dolphin, kingfish, and maybe even a wahoo or two. Didn't hear much this week on the bottom, conditions were much less than ideal for anyone to spend much time trying though. When the ocean calms down the snapper fishing could very well be on fire!
INSHORE- No red hot inshore reports this week, but scattered reports of a catch here and there did trickle in. The Hobe Sound grass flats (mile marker 40-44) are holding an assorted variety of species. Small snook, jacks, ladyfish, pompano, and a few trout are possible this time of year. Live shrimp, Vudu Shrimp, DOA Shrimp, DOA CAL's, Doc's Goofy Jigs, and Gulfstream Shrimp Jigs are all good choices. The Munyon Island area is also starting to produce some fish as well. The big tackle busting jacks are around for those looking to pull on something big inshore. Throw a big noisy topwater to really get them fired up!
SURF/PIER- Slower action this week, but still some fish around along the beach. Bluefish action picked back up around the Juno Beach Pier. Silver spoons and cut mullet are both good choices for the blues. Scattered spanish mackerel around, with numbers increasing up towards Peck's Lake. Pompano action was slow this week, with only scattered fish being caught. Plenty of blacktop and spinner sharks around to pull on. A fresh chunk of ladyfish or jack should get the shark's attention.

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!)
Thanks For Reading,
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.
