OFFSHORE- Definitely a nicer looking forecast for the upcoming weekend. It isn't going to be flat, but it should be a whole lot better than we've seen for the last few weekends! Dolphin fishing remains fair in 200-400" of water, though reports from the last few days have been surprisingly slow given the conditions. The full moon is going away from us, so a wahoo bite is not at all out of the question. If the blackfin tuna show up in 200-300'of water, be sure to give the area a little time...the wahoo won't be far behind! Sailfish are starting to trickle in, and action should improve with each passing front (Great pic below of Jeff with a nice one he caught while fishing on The Seahorse!). Snapper fishing remains very good on the bottom. Capt Eric (http://www.freighttrainfishing.com) had some nice yellowtail snapper yesterday. Mangrove and mutton snapper are still in the mix as well. Look for the snapper to be in 60-90' of water from Palm Beach to Jupiter Inlet. Sardines and squid remain solid bait choices for the snapper and other bottom dwellers. Haven't heard of many yet, but don't be surprised if a cobia swims through and grabs the sardine you had planned on feeding to a mutton!
INSHORE- Still seeing a good number of finger mullet inshore, and the snook continue to enjoy the easy meals. The mullet will be the most active during the night or low light periods of the day, so go then for the most action. If the mullet aren't showing themselves, look for the snook to be holding along seawalls (especially those with good current). A Super Spook walked along a seawall with good current will most likely not go unnoticed by a snook looking for an easy meal (Or at worst a bruiser jack cruising along the seawalls). A few tarpon still mixed in with the snook, as are the big ladyfish and jacks. If your not into using live mullet; a Zara Spook, Vudu Mullet, or Rapala X-Rap are ll good lure choices. A few scattered mangrove snapper are still biting inshore, as are some nice size sand perch. Small pieces of shrimp are great choices for both species!
SURF/PIER- Pompano have started to show back up in fair numbers. The early morning and afternoon remain the best time for the pompano. Standard baits (shrimp, sand fleas, clams, and fishbites) are catching the pomps along the beach, while the pier is splitting the catch between bait and Doc's Goofy Jigs. Bluefish action remains very strong, though the blues have taken a little bit of nomadic nature on and are wandering a little more than they used to. Silver spoons and popping plugs remain good lures for the bluefish during low light periods, while cut bait (sardines and mullet) catch them a little better when the sun is up higher. The redfish action slowed this week at the Juno Beach Pier and Inlet, but mangrove snapper action has remained very strong. The mangroves are biting live shrimp, small live pinfish, fresh pinfish chunks, and fresh mullet pretty good. Still a few stray mutton snapper milling around the pier as well. Shark action along the beach is good (All the fish around right now give the sharks plenty to eat!). Lots of good stuff along the beach...go if you have a chance!
