OFFSHORE- First "cool" front of the season of the season this weekend should shake up the fishing offshore. Friday and Saturday look the nicer weather days, while Sunday is going to be a little on the "sporty" side. Dolphin fishing was pretty good over the past week, with some nice fish caught in depths ranging from 150-600' of water out of both Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlets. Trolling ballyhoo or drifting with live mullet are both good choices for catching the dolphin right now. Sailfish action should be good this weekend especially with a little north wind in the forecast. Livebaiting the 120' ledge should get you a few sailfish bites this weekend. A few late season kingfish have been scattered around, with most of the kings on the smaller size. Snapper fishing remains good; especially when you get the right water quality and current.
INSHORE- Lots of finger mullet schools around inshore right now, and the snook and small tarpon are in them. Look for the finger mullet to be most active in low light periods and at night. Mixed in with the snook and tarpon will be some jacks, sharks, ladyfish, and maybe even a few small bluefish. The shift in weather has the inshore fishing getting much much better. Look for the flats fishing around Hobe Sound and Munyon Island areas to be very good for mixed bag action.
SURF/PIER- Lots of good action on the beach right now! Big schools of mullet are filled up with predators of all kinds. Lots of tarpon, snook, jacks, sharks, bluefish, and ladyfish around the mullet schools. Throwing a big popping plug, silver spoon, or fishing a live mullet on the edges are all good choices right now. Spanish mackerel are showing back up along the beach, and can be caught with the "bobber rig" and a clark spoon pretty good right now. The Juno Beach Pier has lots of snook around, some pompano, good numbers of small kingfish, and even a few cobia already. Lots of good action right now, GO FISHING!!!!
