OFFSHORE: Conditions look good for a little sailfish bite this weekend. Numbers up to the north have been increasing, and it won't be much longer before they are snapping good here. A few boats are putting together multiple releases on a near daily basis, so get those kites out and ready. Scattering of dolphin being caught in 200-350' of water, including a handful of nice ones. Kingfish remain scattered up and down the 120' ledge in good numbers. Bottom fishing remains good as well.
INSHORE: Snook fishing remains good around the bridges at night. Starting to be that time of year when the snook get keyed in nicely on shrimp. Starting to hear about better numbers of sheepshead taking up their wintertime spots around bridge pilings and boat docks as well. Hard to beat a live shrimp for them! Hobe Sound Flats continue to produce nice mixed bag action.
SURF/PIER: Good surf fishing continues with some nice catches of pompano coming in. Sandfleas, clams, and FIshBItes remain the baits of choice for the pomps. Good number of Spanish Mackerel around. They are beginning to start to fill in at Peck's LAke and are scattered up and down the beach as well. Bluefish action remains good. Looks like nice weekend coming up...get after it!

OFFSHORE- Offshore reports are a bit slow this week, no doubt largely to the rough ocean at the beginning of the week. Sailfish action remains fair, but has not went off yet to speak of. Each passing cold front should help to get them going a little better. The usual kite fishing routine is producing some fair sailfish catches; just no big numbers yet to speak of. A handful of scattered dolphin being caught in 150-300' of water, including a few decent size gaffers. Decent little number of kingfish are scattered along the 120' ledge. A few wahoo are still being caught in 150' of water. Snapper fishing remains pretty good along the bottom, with a handful of grouper in the mix as well. Sardines will remain the bait of choice on the bottom.
INSHORE- Inshore fishing has been pretty good with the changing season. Snook are still biting fairly well in the Loxahatchee River during the day, and around docklights and bridges at night. Another front or two and the snook will really be keyed in on shrimp; as it is now they are biting a wide variety of baits. Jigs and swimbaits are producing well, especially around the bridges. DOA and Vudu shrimp lures are top choices around docklights. The Hobe Sound flats have continued to produce nice mixed bag action. A few pompano, jacks, ladyfish, and others are all in the mile marker 40-44 range. Some big jacks pushing around in the Loxahatchee River right now. Live mullet or a noisy topwater fished along seawalls is a solid choice for the jacks currently.
SURF/PIER- Following the swell this week the fishing is GOING OFF along the beach and also at the Juno Beach Pier. The Spanish Mackerel made a HUGE showing over the past few days in a big way. The Mackerel showed up pretty much from Jupiter to Palm Beach Inlet just about overnight. Bluefish also showed up in solid numbers with the macs. Silver spoons, gotcha plugs, diamond jigs, and just about anything else you threw in the water was being demolished over the past few days. Forecast looks good for the fish to stick around as well. Pompano fishing remains very good, with some solid numbers coming in from both the surf and pier. Sandfleas and FishBItes are the top bait choices from the beach. Doc's Goofy Jigs are catching them on the Pier. The sharks continue to hang around in good numbers as well. Lots of fish along the beach right now...great time to go!
NOAA MARINE WEATHER:
FRIDAY...East winds 5 to 15 knots. Seas 2 to 4 feet with occasional seas to 5 feet. Period 5 seconds. Intracoastal waters a moderate chop.
SATURDAY...South southeast winds 5 to 10 knots along the coast to south southeast around 10 knots in the Gulf Stream. Seas 2 to 3 feet. Intracoastal waters a light chop. .SATURDAY NIGHT...Southwest winds 10 to 15 knots. Seas 2 to 3 feet. Intracoastal waters a light chop.
SUNDAY...West northwest winds 10 to 15 knots. Seas 2 to 3 feet. Intracoastal waters a light chop. Chance of light showers.

OFFSHORE- Less than ideal weather offshore has kept reports a bit slim again this week. A handful of wahoo reports did come in with the full moon before the weather blew up. Sailfish action has started to improve, and should only continue to get better with each passing cold front. Kite fishing with goggle eyes and blue runners will remain the tactic of choice from the Loran Tower south. Look for the sails to be in 100-200' of water for the most part. Dolphin, including some good size gaffers, should be mixed in with the sails as well. A few cobia also being reported in the mix. Bottom fishing remains strong for this time of year. Good snapper reports, a handful of grouper, and a stray cobia or two are keeping things interesting on the bottom. Sardines remain the bait of choice on the bottom.
INSHORE- Snook fishing continues to remain strong around the bridges and in the Loxahatchee River. The snook are eating shrimp at night around the bridges and docklights; while a live mullet remains the bait of choicefor the snook during the day. Mixed in with the snook have been some bruiser jacks as well. Look for the jacks to be along seawalls that have a few feet of water up against them. A live mullet fished tight to the wall won't go unoticed for long if they are around. The resident Lox River Tarpon have been biting pretty good over the past few weeks. Hobe Sound Flats continue to produce a nice mixed bag of species. Ladyfish, jacks, pompano, bluefish, snapper, snook, and a few trout are all being caught from Mile Marker 40 to Mile Marker 44. Live shrimp is a solid bait choice for fishing the flats up that way.
SURF/PIER- Pompano action has remained very strong along the beach and at the Juno Beach Pier this week. Doc's Goofy Jigs are a solid lure choice at the Pier; while sandfleas, clams, and FishBItes are the baits of choice along the beach. Look for the pomps to bite best during lowlight periods of the day, especially if it lines up with a high tide. Bluefish remain a bit sporadic, but are coming through in decent numbers. Silver spoons, diamond jigs, noisy popping plugs, and cut mullet are all good choices for the blues. Blacktip sharks are along the beach in good numbers, and a lot of fun on light tackle. Spanish Mackerel should start to show in better numbers at pretty much anytime as well.

OFFSHORE- Sailfish action has been improving, and should be very good this weekend with passing cold front. The “Dust em’ Off” Sailfish tournament kicks the season off for us, and should only improve from here on out. Best action on the sails has been down south of Palm Beach Inlet in 150-200’ of water. As usual live goggle eyes and small blue runners will be the way to go for bait. Not much on the dolphin this week, but don’t be surprised to hear of a few big ones being mixed in with the sailfish this weekend. Bottom fishing was good again this week with some nice snapper catches coming in. Ninety feet of water from the Juno Beach Pier up to Jupiter Inlet has been a very safe bet on good bottom fishing action.
INSHORE- Some pretty good reports this week on the inshore side of things. The Munyon Island flats have been holding snook, jacks, ladyfish, and a few others. A small swimming plug (like a Yo-Zuri Crystal Minnow) is a solid lure choice right now. The snook are stacking up on docklights in good number, and are keying in on shrimp. Fish moving water (incoming or outgoing tide) with live shrimp, shrimp imitating lures, or small swimming plugs for fast action on the snook. The Hobe Sound flats are coming to life with cooling water temps. Snook, jacks, pompano, ladyfish, bluefish, and others are all hanging out in fair numbers up that way.
SURF/PIER- Pompano action remains steady along the beach and at the Juno Beach Pier. Along the beach the bait fishermen are doing best using sandfleas, clams, and FishBites. Anglers on the pier are finding the best action throwing Doc’s Goofy Jigs in bright colors. Early morning and late afternoon have been producing the best action on the pompano. Bluefish action has been steadily improving as well, and should continue to improve as we see some more cold fronts push through. Spanish Mackerel are increasing in numbers at the Juno Beach Pier. Small clark spoons, gotcha lures, and crappie jigs are the best lure choices for the Mackerel. A handful of kingfish are hanging around at the Juno Beach Pier. Good numbers of blacktip sharks around as well. Lots of fun to catch them from the beach on light tackle. Fresh chunks of bait at night is the way to go for the sharks.
NOAA MARINE WEATHER:
FRIDAY...North northeast winds 5 to 15 knots. Seas 2 to 3 feet. Period 7 seconds. Intracoastal waters a light chop. Slight chance of light showers in the morning, then chance of light showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon.

Along the coast, seas 3 to 5 feet with occasional seas to 6 feet building to 6 to 8 feet with occasional seas to 10 feet in the afternoon. In the Gulf Stream, seas 6 to 8 feet with occasional seas to 10 feet building to 9 to 11 feet with occasional seas to 14 feet in the afternoon. Period 7 seconds. North swell 3 to 5 feet in the afternoon. Intracoastal waters choppy in exposed areas. Showers likely . Slight chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon.
