OFFSHORE- Well...looks a bit breezy this weekend! Sailfish action has been pretty good for those willing to battle through the rough stuff. Sailfish bite has been pretty consistent from the Juno Beach Pier to Jupiter inlet in 150-250' of water. Live goggle eyes under the kite are a safe bet, as are free lined sardines if you can find them. Decent number of dolphin, including some pretty good size ones, mixed in with the sails. Kingfish, and the occasional wahoo, remain scattered up and down the 120' ledge. Bottom fishing reports have been a bit slow, largely in part to less than desirable conditions.
INSHORE- Catch and release snook fishing remains pretty good inshore. Sheepshead and black drum are biting live shrimp around the bridges. Reports from McArthur State Park are starting to heat up. Fair number of snook, along with a few trout being caught in the park. A few jacks pushing around as well to keep things interesting.
SURF/PIER- Strong east winds for the upcoming weekend will make fishing tough overall along the beach. A few pompano have been caught this week, especially north of Jupiter Inlet. Spanish Mackerel have been the main draw at the Juno Beach Pier. Gotcha Plugs, Flash Minnow Jigs, and Live Deception Flash Jigs have all been a good choice for the macs. Bluefish action remains unseasonably slow, but a few are around.
