OFFSHORE- Sailfish bite has been good the past few days, with many boats getting five or more chances. Live goggle eyes or blue runners under the kite remain the best bet for the sails. Best depth remains 120-150' for the most part, but main bounce in or out depending on water conditions and what's around bait wise. Fair number of dolphin around, along with a good number of kings. Wahoo are still scattered along the edge as well. Snapper fishing was fair this week.
INSHORE- Catch and release snook fishing has been good this week, especially in the river. Live mullet along the seawalls has been the ticket for the bigger snook, as well as bruiser jacks. Look for seawalls that have darker mud bottoms to be the most productive. Sheepshead and black drum have shown up inshore in pretty good numbers. LIve shrimp is always a good bait choice for them.
SURF/PIER- Good Spanish Mackerel action this week along the beach and at the Pier. Crappie jigs, diamond jigs, and small swimming plugs have all been doing the trick as of late on the macs. Some scattered bluefish around, but no big numbers to speak of. Slim pickings for the most part on the pompano this week.
