OFFSHORE: Pretty diverese range of weather and fishing offshore over the past week, and the upcoming weekend looks to offer more of the same. Sailfish action is not what iit could/should be for this time of year, though the cold front pushing through this weekend could quickly change that. Some sailfish are pushing through, though the bigger concentration of fish seems to still be holding farther up the line. Kingfish schooled up a little bit better this week, with some nice catches coming up towards the Loran Tower and also just south of the Juno Beach Pier. Dolphin fishing remains fair, with a decent number of fish around for this time of year. Snapper fishing remains strong as well. Some good reports of mutton, yellowtail, and bigger mangove snapper all coming in. Sardines remain the bait of choice for the snapper.
INSHORE: The inshore flats around Munyon Island, Hobe Sound, and even the Loxahatchee River are starting to come alive with a variety of species. Sheepshead, ladyfish, jack, snook, and even the ocasoinal redfish are poking around the flats right now and have been very willing to eat a live shrimp. Snook fishing has been fair around the bridges. The bridges are also holding a nice number of sheepshead and black drum or two.
SURF/PIER: Pompano fishing improved a little this week, with some fair catches coming in north of Jupiter Inlet. Spanish mackerel fishing remains strong off of Peck's Lake. Bluefish action should improve this weekend with the passing cold front. Also just about time to see a big push of blacktip and spinner sharks around.
