OFFSHORE- In the spirit of the Halloween weekend...it looks like anybody wanting to get offshore this weekend is facing a trick instead of a treat! A pretty strong cool front is going to have the wind blowing up out of the northwest and the ocean looks like it will be on the rougher side. Anyone able to sneak out should find a good bite on the sailfish, and most likely some dolphin as well. Look for the sails and dolphin to be along the edge in 100-200' of water. It'll be rough, but it will be great conditions for sailfish. Be careful and don't push the limits of what your boat can comfortably handle. Cobia made a nice showing this week along the edge. Look for the cobia to be following the sharks or hanging around wrecks this time of year. Snapper fishing remained very good this week, with a nice mixed bag of muttons and yellowtail snapper being caught out of Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlets.
INSHORE- Snook fishing is slowing down just a bit but overall remains good. Look for the snook to be following the last schools of mullet around; and really beginning to fill into their more traditional late fall/winter homes. Bridges with good current and deep water channels will remain very good spots to look for the snook. As the mullet thin out, live shrimp(or shrimp style lures) will begin to be the key baits for snook. Flats fishing around Munyon Island continues to improve. LIve shrimp will be a good bet for catching a nice mixed bag of species along the flats now.
SURF/PIER- Still seeing a lot of action along the beach right now. Pompano fishing remains very good for this time of year. From the beach the pompano are biting sandfleas the best; the Juno Beach Pier pompano have a taste for Goofy Jigs and clams it seems. Spanish mackerel action is also very good at the Juno Beach Pier, especially early and in dirty water conditions. Small X-Raps, crappie jigs, clark spoons(w/ the bobber rig), and gotcha plugs are all catching the mackerel right now. Scattered reports of a few redfish along the beach right now as well. Bluefish action remains good. Cut bait and silver spoons will work well for the bluefish.
Good Luck Everyone
