Super Quick Report today...will try and update in the next day or so.
OFFSHORE- Looking like a blowout this weekend. Those that have made it out have found some dolphin and sails, but it is not a weekend to try and make an offshore run. Looks like early next week we will see a slight break in the wind, ands when it does break look for the fish to be fired up.
INSHORE- Snook fishing remains good around the bridges at night. Outgoing tide and some deeper water are the two ideal situations to find the snook right now. Jigs, Swimbaits, and swimming plugs all remain good choices for the snook. Jacks, ladyfish, and bluefish are around in fair numbers inshore.
SURF/PIER- Pompano action has been good this week, with some nice catches coming from both the Juno Beach Pier and the beach. Sandfleas and clams remain the top bait choices for the pompano, with fishbites also catching some fish! Bluefish are along the beach and biting cut bait and silver spoons equally well. The sharks are around in good numbers as well. Surf action has been good, windy conditions will make fishing tough; but the fish are around!
Good Luck this weekend!
OFFSHORE- The weather over the past week has kept the offshore reports to a minimum. Those who have managed to sneak out, and it has been a very few have found a few dolphin and some sailfish. Conditions are stacking up for what looks like could be a good dolphin bite. Trolling ballyhoo or flying some small blue runners or goggle eyes under the kite should provide shots at some nice dolphin. Mixed in will no doubt be a few sailfish. Keeping baits in that zone this time of year though can produce all kinds of random bites. A big kingfish, dolphin, wahoo, and even a yellowfin tuna(our friends on the Goin Raptor had a nice yellowfin last Saturday during the Dust em' off Sailfish Tournament. It came up missing part of its tail; but weighed 61lbs. Impressive catch on 20lb test!) are all possible this time of year along the edge. Bottom fishing reports have been on the slow side, all due to the weather.
INSHORE- Snook fishing remains good at night around the bridges. The last trickles of mullet and beginning of shrimp flowing through have them a little confused on what they really want to eat. One night is mullet, the next shrimp; so don't be afraid to try both. Flair Hawk style snook jigs, big swim baits, and swimming plugs will still provide the best chance at bagging a slot size snook. Less than a month left of season so get after them while you can! The flats around Munyon Island and Hobe Sound are starting to come back to life, and should improve as we start to get some passing cold fronts. As of now the jacks and ladyfish are showing up in fair numbers, the other wintertime species shouldn't be too far behind.
SURF/PIER- Bluefish action has been good on the Juno Beach Pier this week, especially early in the morning and then again later in the afternoon. Silver spoon, diamond jigs, popping plugs, and cut bait will all catch the bluefish right now. Pompano action improved with some good catches early in the week. Sandfleas, clams, and Fishbites remain the baits of choice for the pompano. The blacktop and spinner sharks are showing up in good numbers along the beach right now. Lots of fun to catch these sharks on light tackle. Still hearing of a handful of snook art the pier as well. Should be some good fishing this weekend, go if you have the chance!

OFFSHORE- Fishing has been good towards the end of the work week,and should continue to improve throughout the weekend. Small boaters won't care for the weather forecast; but it will most likely have the fish fired up. Dolphin action, out of both Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlets, has been good this week in 200-400' of water. A handful of sailfish have been around this week, and their numbers should definitely increase with the coming northeast wind. Kitefishing in 150-250' of water with live goggle eyes and blue runners should give everyone a few chances this weekend at some nice dolphin and/or sailfish. Look for the usual signs(rips, color changes, bait, etc) to key in on, and start the drift around these things for best results. A handful of wahoo have been caught this week, and it won't be surprising to hear of a few more being picked off over the weekend. The best action offshore though continue to be the snapper bite along the bottom. Talked to Capt. Howard (http://www.redbeardfishingcharters.com) this morning before his trip. He has had a few really good days this week, and really crushed the mangrove and yellowtail snapper yesterday. Sardines remain a top choice bait wise for getting the snapper to bite.
INSHORE- Snook fishing remains fair around the bridges and seawalls, but it has definitely slowed down. Take some time to seek out the best looking areas and fish slowly and patiently for best results. A Zara Spook walked along seawalls at dawn or dusk is a good bet for explosive topwater action, and a live mullet freelanced along the same seawall will not go unnoticed for too long, Those looking for rod bending fun will be very happy to hear that the jacks haver invaded the Loxahatchee River in good numbers. Ladyfish have also began to take up their winter homes in the usual spots. No spotted seatrout reports yet...but that may change this weekend with the first little front of the year.
SURF/PIER- Not a hugely exciting week along the surf this week; but a few fish have been around. Smaller panfish (croaker, whiting, sand perch) have been biting in the first trough on cut shrimp. The bluefish are biting cut bait best at night. A handful of pompano are being caught on sand fleas; with the best action coming north of Jupiter Inlet. Look for all surf action to improve over the weekend with the slight change in weather.

OFFSHORE- This week has seen some good dolphin fishing, and if the weather forecast for the upcoming week holds; the dolphin should continue to bite pretty good. East winds have helped blow the dolphin in a little shallower; with dolphin catches being reported in 100-300' of water out of both Jupiter and Palm Beach Inlets. Trolling ballyhoo, bonita strips, squid and small jet head lures to cover water is good; as is drifting while heavily chumming. In along the ledge a few scattered sailfish are starting to show. A blue runner or goggle eye under the kite is a good choice for the sailfish; and will seldom go unnoticed by a passing kingfish or wahoo. Stick to 120-200' of water for a good shot at catching a nice mixed bag of fish right now. Those drifting will live baits may have a little better chance at the sails and cobia, but trollers can also figure on seeing some blackfin tuna in the mix as well (be sure to keep a small trolling feather in the spread for that reason!). Snapper fishing has remained very good this week, with some good yellowtail and mutton snappers being caught. Sardines remain a great bait choice for bottom fishing. Lots of good stuff offshore right now...GO if you have a chance! NOAA Marine Forecast-below.

INSHORE- Still a few small pods of mullet around, but the massive schools have really started to thin out. This can make for some explosive fishing as the snook, tarpon, and jacks are just not ready to give up on the easy meals. Live mullet fished along good looking seawalls and docks are not going to go unnoticed for long. Look for the snook to be fired up around the bridges at night. Still a great time of year to be throwing affair hawk or big swim bait. Sheepshead action has been good around area bridges, and the slow mangrove snapper pick is still on going. Above average air temps will keep the action best at night or during low light periods of the day. Munyon Island and Hobe Sound Flats are slowly starting to come to life. Mostly jacks and ladyfish for now, but a lot of fun on light tackle.
SURF/PIER- Slightly slower along the beach this week, but still some fish around to keep things interesting. Bluefish remain a solid bet first thing in the morning and late in the afternoon. A silver spoon should do the trick if your into tossing lures, while those more into soaking bait should find success with sardine or mullet chunks. A fews pompano are being caught each morning and afternoon, with clams and sand fleas being the top producing baits. Starting to see a good number of blacktop sharks moving along the beach as well.
SHOP UPDATE- Lots of great stuff in shop right now. Big selection of Smith, Ocean Eyes, and Costa Sunglasses. Awesome assortment of KScott, Skinny Water Culture, and Bluefin shirts in stock (Plus some great clearance deals on assorted shirts from same companies!). Huge selection of rods right now, with more n the way as well, Too much to write about...just come see it!

FREIGHT TRAIN FISHING- Had a few great fishing days the end of the week. See above pic for a nice dolphin catch, still picking away at the snapper, catching some snook inshore, and finding action along the beach as well. Lots of good stuff going on right now, give me a call about different trip options!
