This weekends weather forecast has it starting to feel like spring is here...great looking weekend for some fishing!
OFFSHORE- The sailfish remained the main game in town this week, with many boats seeing three to four sails a day. Capt. Byron Thomas (http://thomasfishingventures.com/) reported seeing good numbers of sailfish from south of PB Inlet up to Lost Tree Village in 100-160' of water, in with the sails have been scattered dolphin and kingfish. LIvebaiting with goggle eyes and blue runners along the edge is still the best bet for a good variety of action. Under the kingfish have been some nice size mutton snapper looking for an easy meal. Try sliding a sardine down to the bottom, and don't be surprised if a nice mutton snapper ends up getting invited home for dinner! Our friend Capt. Jack Porcelli (http://www.captainjacksfishingcharters.com/) had a couple of nice cobia this week as well.
Jupiter drift fishing is improving as well. Capt. Howard Tuttle (http://www.redbeardfishingcharters.com/) had a nice mixed bag this week of kingfish and snapper. The fish are around...it just takes a little work to find them.
INSHORE- Snook fishing should continue to improve this weekend as water temps continue to creep up. Dark bottom flats with good sunlight will still be key spots during the day, and deep channels with good current at night. LIve shrimp is always a good snook bait this time of year. (For those into fishing lures check out this link for good snook lure choices: http://youtu.be/E-zjCDHoGg8 from Capt. Eric at http://www.freighttrainfishing.com/) Fishing around Munyon Island slowed a little; with a few spotted seatrout and jack reports trickling in.
SURF/PIER- Spinner shark season is in full swing right now. The spinners tend to bite good, fight hard, and are loads of fun on light tackle. Capt. James Knox (http://fishcastings.com/) had five spinners this morning, including a few multiple hookups. Spanish Mackerel action at Peck's Lake remains strong, and some scattered schools of macs can be found along the beach as well. Still very scattered action on the pompano. Spending time on the beach right now and soaking bait is what it takes to catch the pomps.
This is kind of the "Link" edition of the fishing report. We rely on these guys for good credible info, check out their websites and consider them for any of your charter needs.
Good Luck and Thanks for reading
