OFFSHORE- The full moon has produced a fair little wahoo bite on our side (and a really good bite for em on the Bahamas side). 200-400' seems to be about the best depth for the wahoo. Blackfin tuna are biting very good in about the same depth. Trolling small feathers and small daisy chains seem to be the ticket for the little tunas. Lowlight periods will be best for the tuna. The wahoo are in eating the little tuna, so don't be afraid to troll for both at the same time. Sailfish action continues to improve, and conditions look right for them to bite again this weekend. Live goggle eyes and small blue runners will be the ticket for the best sailfish bite. Snapper fishing has been very good as well this week.
INSHORE- Snook fishing remains very good inshore, especially around the lingering schools of mullet. Look for the snook to be most active early in the morning, late in the afternoon, and at night. A few tarpon and a good number of nice sized jacks around. Hard to beat a big jack crashing a topwater lure along an intracoastal seawall. The flats around Hobe Sound and Munyan Island are coming to life nicely with a small drop in air/water temps. Reports of a handful of trout and small redfish are showing up, along with the usual inshore species.
SURF/PIER- Great surf fishing along the beach this week, with solid action early in the morning and late in the afternoon. Bluefish, jacks, and Spanish Mackerel are making up a bulk of the action. As mentioned low-light periods of the day will be best for the most action. Topwater poppers, Yo-Zuri Longcast Minnows, and heavy silver spoons have all been working very well for the jacks and bluefish. The bobber rig and smaller Rapala X-Raps have been working well for the Spanish Mackerel. Blacktip sharks are starting to show in better numbers as well with so many fish around. Pompano action has been very very good this week. Only problem with the pompano action has been most of the fish are undersized. Pompano are biting Doc's Goofy jigs very well at the Juno Beach Pier; while sandfleas and clams are working well along the beach. Mullet schools are still around, but starting to thin out a bit. Those remaining schools still have some tarpon hanging around, and maybe a snook or two.
