OFFSHORE: Sailfish action remains scattered up and down the line. No big numbers of sails, but a few boats are seeing multiple fish. Scattered dolphin in 150-300' of water. Trolling bonita strips and squid is a good bet for the dolphin. Look for the dolphin to be in small packs and not schooled up in large numbers; be prepared to cover some water to find the dolphin. Kingfish are scattered up and down the line. The kings aren't schooled up in big numbers either; but the ones being caught are BIG! Some solid 40 to 50lb kings have been caught over the past week in 80-100' of water. Drifting dead sardines on a lightly weighted knocker rig is a good way to go for the kings. Snapper fishing remains good. Some solid mutton snapper and nice yellowtail being caught.
INSHORE: Snook fishing has been improving this week. The big fish aren't stacked up in numbers, but lots of numbers around. Shrimp is the main diet of snook right now so keep that in mind when choosing lures. Look for the snook to bite best on the outgoing tide. Flats fishing remains fairly good. Live shrimp is a good bait choice for catching a wide variety of species inshore right now.
SURF/PIER: Pompano fishing has improved this week, with a few more fish being caught south of Jupiter Inlet. Still no big numbers, but that could change almost any day. Clams and sand fleas remain the baits of choice for the pompano. The spinner sharks are starting to show in better numbers this week. Bluefish and spanish mackerel remain scattered along the beach. Looks like it could be a pretty fishy weekend.
