OFFSHORE- Sailfish action remains pretty consistent from Lake Worth to Jupiter Inlet in 150-225' of water. Best bet locally remains live goggle eyes or blue runners under the kite, or trolling small naked ballyhoo as you head farther north. With some north wind in the forecast for Saturday and Sunday, and slightly better ocean conditions than we have been seeing, could be a pretty solid weekend for the sailfish. Decent number of dolphin remain mixed in with the sails, as do a few cobia and occasional wahoo. KIngfish bite has slowed a bit, but still a fair number scattered up and down the 120' ledge. The drift boats have been reporting solid snapper catches, with some cobia and kings in the mix as well.
INSHORE- Sheepshead and a few black drum have been biting well around the bridges. Live fiddler crabs(If you can find them) and live shrimp are going to be the best bait choices for them. One more weekend of catch and release snook fishing. Best snook fishing remains at night around docklights and bridges. Live shrimp are a solid choice for the snook right now. Pretty good mixed bag action on the Hobe Sound/Jupiter Island Flats. Just a few scattered reports of some pompano in the Loxahatchee RIver over the past few days.
SURF/PIER- Conditions are looking a little better for the upcoming weekend, which could hopefully lead to some of the better surf fishing we've seen this weekend. A few days of north wind will hopefully push a fair number of Mackerel, Bluefish, and Pompano down this way. Presently the water is a bit muddy, but as it clears up a bit the fishing should improve. It's also about time for blacktip season to really get rolling...we'll have to see if that happens!
