OFFSHORE- It's been a bit of a crap shoot with the weather, but the fishing over the past few days has been pretty good. Sailfish action remains good, with some days still producing double digit chances. Sailfish action seems to remain scattered up and down the line in 150-300' of water primarily. Mixed in with the sailfish has been a good number of dolphin, including some very solid sized ones. Also, hearing a report or two of some very nice blackfin tuna around in the same areas. Snapper have been biting on the bottom, with some reports of cobia thrown in the mix as well. Sounds like pretty good fishing overall...let's just hope the weather report is a little off so everyone can get out.
INSHORE- Snook season is back open, and the slot size fish have been around. Look for the bridges to produce at night; especially on outgoing tide. Flair Hawks, Shrimp Jigs, and medium sized swimbaits have all been good choices for the snook as of late. A nice live shrimp is also pretty hard for the snook to pass up as well right now. Fair reports of sheepshead and black drum around the bridges.
SURF/PIER- Pompano have been showing on and off at the Juno Beach Pier over the past week. Doc's Goofy Jigs have been the lure of choice, while clams and sand fleas are doing the trick bait wise. Some bluefish and Spanish Mackerel around, as well as a fair number of jacks. Sounds like the sharks are starting to show in a little better numbers as well. Could be a fishy weekend along the beach...go if you get a chance!
