OFFSHORE- This may come as a bit of a surprise...but we haven't had any reports for the past week. The weekend forecast is actually looking halfway decent. Saturday looks like it could be a dolphin day, and Sunday could have the sailfish biting. If the water isn't too bad inside the 120' ledge, it could be a really good bottom bite as well. A lot of would, could, and should's I know...but after the past week of weather it's about all we have to go with!
INSHORE- Water inshore (at time of writing) is way up and pretty dirty for the most part. Areas of cleaner water will no doubt have the snook fired up: And as the water clears it will only help to get them biting better. Use the wind to your advantage to help easily direct baits to easy ambush points. Mixed in with the snook will be a fair number of tarpon and some big jacks. Expect the rough weather to push some snapper into Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlet.
SURF/PIER- Surf has been blown out all week, and the Juno Beach Pier has been closed since lunchtime on Monday...so as you may guess, no reports of any kind this week. No word yet on when the Pier will reopen, but it will likely be a few days before it does. Palm Beach Inlet should have a fair number of jacks and possibly some bluefish and Spanish Mackerel around. Hopefully SW winds help clean the water up quick, surf calms down as the weekend goes on, and the fish show up!

The new Yo-Zuri 3DR-X Pencil maybe the BEST small topwater lure on the market! Excellent walk the dog action, great casting, and perfect when the fish are keyed in on smaller baits!
