OFFSHORE- Looks like we may see a little push of sailfish come through this weekend. Expect lots of kites to be flying along the 120' ledge, especially Sunday as the breeze turns north. Sailfish action has been fair, with a handful of boats getting multiple chances. Dolphin action remains pretty good as well in 200-300' of water. Trolling small ballyhoo, bonita strips, and squid is a solid bet for the dolphin right now. The dolphin will be in smaller packs, and not locked onto structure as much. Look for bait, current rips, and color changes to find the dolphin. Average size on the dolphin has been pretty good. KIngfish remain scattered up and down the ledge in good numbers, along with a handful of wahoo. Bahamas wahoo action remains red hot, and should be good this weekend on the backside of the full moon. SNapper fishing remains good, with some nice catches coming in from the driftboats. Sardines remain the baits of choice for the snapper.
INSHORE- Rising temps this week triggered a decent little snook bit this weekend. Good timing since this is the last weekend to invite one of those slot size snook home for dinner for a while (Snook season closes 12/15). The snook have been biting shrimp jigs around the bridges at night. Also, look for docklight action to be very good for the snook as well. Fishing live shrimp, DOA Shrimp, or Docklight Specials through the lights is a sure bet for action right now. The Munyan ISland flats have been holding a little mixed bag variety of fish. A few snook, trout, occasional redfish, jacks, and ladyfish are all hanging around. Hobe Sound flats are coming to life as well. Reports are good on pompano in Stuart (namely around the sailfish flats) as well, with Goofy Jigs being the lure of choice.
SURF/PIER- The Juno Beach Pier has had a handful of Spanish Mackerel and small Kingfish around this week. Small swimming plugs, diamond jigs, and crappie jigs are all good choices for the macs. The kings are biting sardines on the trolley rig, with the best bite coming in the morning. Pompano action has been hit or miss this week. Sounds like the best pompano reports are coming in north of Jupiter Inlet for the most part. Spanish Mackerel are beginning to fill into Peck's Lake in pretty good numbers. Bluefish action remains a bit off.
