Weekend Fishing Outlook (12/1-12/3/2017)
OFFSHORE- Weather looks like we may see a little sailfish bite go off this weekend. Expect the sailfish to be in 150-300' of water (maybe a little deeper depending on overall water conditions) from Palm Beach Inlet to north of Jupiter Inlet. Live goggle eyes and blue runners under the kite will be the best bet for the sailfish. Current rips, color changes, and large areas of bait are great areas to start the search for the sails. Dolphin remain scattered in the same areas. The bigger dolphin will bite the same live baits as the sailfish, but for overall dolphin numbers try trolling small ballyhoo and skirted squid. The bottom fishing remains pretty strong with some good snapper catches coming in. A few cobia in the mix as well on the bottom.
INSHORE- Snook fishing remains good around the bridges at night. Shrimp jigs are a solid choice for the snook right now, especially on the outgoing tide. The flats around Munyon Island and Home Sound are starting to hold a few fish, and that should improve with a few decent cold fronts. Sheepshead and black drum are being caught around area bridges on fresh shrimp.
SURF/PIER- Dirty water had fishing tough most of the week. A few pompano are being caught on clams, sandfleas, and Fishbites. A handful of Spanish Mackerel and some bluefish are being caught on the Juno Beach Fishing Pier. A little clean water will really help fire up the surf fishing.
