Offshore- No reports offshore to speak of this week. A handful of dolphin around, along with some sailfish for the few that did make it out this week. Those willing to tough it out this weekend could find a decent little sailfish bite going on. Water quality will be key...find some good water and and the sails won't be far behind.
Inshore- Snook fishing remains very good inshore these days. During the day the snook are keyed in on mullet along seawalls and around boat docks. At night the snook are biting well around the bridges. The shrimp jig and flair hawk have both been producing solid results. With the water being on the dirty side both incoming and outgoing tide are producing good snook bites. Starting to see some more winter species showing up inshore. Sheepshead, black drum, and other assorted stuff are starting to fill in. Live shrimp will be the bait of choice.
Surf/Pier- Tough surf/pier fishing this week. Water has been on the dirty side and the surf has been up...tough combo. A few scattered bluefish around for those toughing it out. No pompano reports to speak of, but hopefully a little north wind will help improve that. Just not a lot to write about this week...hoping for a change soon!
