OFFSHORE: Another mixed bag week of fishing offshore. Sailfish action remains scattered up and down the line. Still a good number of sails around, but more small packs than a large concentration. Dolphin are around in fair numbers as well, with some good size ones. Look for the dolphin to be in smaller packs as well; and not so much in large schools. The kingfish remain scattered along the ledge. Again...not huge schools of kingfish but the ones around have been good sized. Snapper fishing remains good along the bottom.
INSHORE: Snook fishing was pretty good this week, and should continue to improve from here on out. Look for the bridges to hold snook on the outgoing tide. Shrimp is still the main diet for the snook. The Loxahatchee River has been productive this week, with some big jacks cruising around. Been a few sheepshead and black drum hanging around the bridges as well. Not great fishing, but not bad fishing either!
SURF/PIER: The spinner sharks are around in fair numbers, and lots of fun to catch on topwater lures. Scattered bluefish and spanish mackerel around. Pompano fishing remains a bit hit or miss. Croakers are biting well in the first trough. Hopefully the east/northeast wind in the forecast helps fire up the fish some!
