OFFSHORE- Sailfish action was strong this week, and conditions look right for a strong bite this weekend. The "Operation Sailfish" Tournament kicks off on Friday with the best sailfish teams in South Florida fishing out of Sailfish Marina. If the sailfish are anywhere close by...these guys will find em! Look for the sails to be in 120-200' of water with some nice dolphin mixed in. Livebaits under the kite will work, as will trolling small naked ballyhoo. Snapper fishing has been good, with nice mutton and yellowtail reports coming in.
INSHORE- Snook season is winding down, better get after them now! Look for the bridges to produce at night on the outgoing tide. Flair Hawk Jigs and large swimbaits remain great lure choices for the snook, while a live shrimp is also hard to beat. Been a few redfish around inshore; not a huge number of them, but it's nice to hear of a few around. Seatrout reports were trickling in, but seem to have really slowed down.
SURF/PIER- The Juno Beach Pier has been catching a few kingfish this week. A trolley rigged sardine or X-Rap seems to be working on the kings. Spanish Mackerel are scattered along the beach, and also starting to fill into Peck's Lake in fair numbers. Pompano action was a bit slow this week, with reports to the north being better for the pompano. Bluefish action has finally started to improve, with soem good catches coming out of Hobe Sound.
