OFFSHORE- A late season cold front could/should fire up a really good sailfish bite this weekend. Most likely this will be one of the last fronts of the year; so if you have the ability to get offshore (won't be a small boat kind of weekend) expect the sails to be snapping. Expect the sailfish to be in the 120-150' range. Live goggle eyes and blue runners under the kite will be the ticket for the sailfish. Dolphin will be mixed in with the sailfish. Don't expect a lot of dolphin, but the ones around should be good sized. Kingfish are scattered along the 120' ledge in good numbers. Blackfin Tuna are beginning to make their springtime showing. Cobia reports have been improving over the past few weeks.
INSHORE- Snook fishing remains good inshore. A cool front this weekend will no doubt though slow it down a bit. THe jacks are showing up inshore in fair numbers. A few tarpon remain scattered in the Loxahatchee River. Other inshore action has been a bit slow. A bit spotty inshore, but expect conditions to begin improving soon.
SURF/PIER- Pompano fishing has remained good over the past few weeks. Sandfleas, clams, and Fishbites remain the top bait choices for the pompano. Doesn't like like an ideal weekend for the beach, so consider trying the pier. If the water doesn't get too dirty, the pomps could bite really good this weekend. The Juno Beach Pier has been producing a scattering of Spanish Mackerel, as well as a few late season bluefish. Starting to see a few early season snook showing up. Won't be an ideal weekend for the surf, but once it calms back down it should be really good.
