Happy New Years Everyone! Shop Open New Years Day 7AM-3PM
OFFSHORE- The weather is looking a little fishy and maybe a little bumpy for the next few days. Sailfish action improved over the last few days, with most boats getting a shot or two a day. Seems like most of the sailfish have been in 130-190' of water out of both Jupiter and Palm Beach Inlets. The current started to pick back up over the last few days which should help get the sailfish feeding again. A few dolphin and blackfin tuna have been caught in 200-300'of water out of Palm Beach Inlet. Trolling small ballyhoo, squid, bonita strips, and small trolling feathers will all work on the dolphin and blackfin tuna. The kingfish that made a showing off Jupiter a few weeks ago seemed to have thinned out a bit. Look for the straggler kings to be hanging around in 90-120' of water. Snapper fishing remains good (especially for this time of year) for those fishing the bottom. Sardines and squid remain the bait of choice for the snapper. Mixed in with the snapper have been a few cobia as well.
INSHORE- Not a lot to report on the inshore side of things this week. The flats fishing around Munyon Island and the Hobe Sound Flats slowed a bit with the warm weather. Look for the fishing to be best early in the morning and late in the afternoon. Live shrimp under a popping cork will be the best bet for all around inshore action. Catch and release snook fishing was a little slower this week.
SURF/PIER- Calm clear conditions kept surf fishing a little sow this week. Best action this week was on croaker and whiting in the first trough with small pieces of shrimp. Some nice jacks cruising the beach as well. Look for the jacks to bite on spoons, popping plugs, and cut bait. Bluefish are around, but not in great numbers. Best bet for the bluefish is late afternoon into the night using cut bait. No pompano reports to speak of this week. Spanish mackerel action remains very good at Peck's Lake. A few cobia have been caught along the beach.
Hope Everyone has a GREAT YEAR!

FREIGHT TRAIN FISHING REPORT- Spanish Mackerel action was very good at Peck's Lake for us this week. Mixed in with the macs have been a lot of blue runners and other assorted species. The sharks and goliath grouper are hanging around the macs, so if you want some something big to pull on...we can find it! Offshore action was a bit slow this week, hopefully we see a little change in the weather soon to get the fish fired back up!
