OFFSHORE- Dolphin reports were good this week, with a lot of fish coming in 500-700' of water. Most of the fish have been averaging 5-8lbs; with a few bigger fish in the mix. Trolling bonita strips and squid has been a pretty safe bet for the dolphin. The blackfin tuna are still hanging around in fair numbers in 200-300' of water. With the moon getting bigger this weekend, expect the wahoo action to pick up. High speeding for the wahoo along the 120' ledge early and late in the day will be a good way to target the wahoo. As the sun comes up more push out a little deeper and get the baits down below the surface. Trolling a Nomad DTX minnow in the spread always gets you a chance at the wahoo. KIngfish remain in good numbers along the 120' ledge, along with plenty of bonita. Snapper fishing has been good this week. Look for the best action in around 90' of water, with sardines being the top bait choice.
INSHORE- Inshore fishing is a bit tough now; with hot temps slowing the fish down for the most part. Catch and release snook fishing will be the main inshore draw. Go early and late for best luck inshore right now, or fish at night. Could also be some tarpon cruising around inshore right now. Mangrove snapper action has been fair inshore.
SURF/PIER- The glass minnow schools remain scattered up and down the beach, and the fish aren't far behind. Snook, tarpon, jacks, blue runners, and others are all taking advantage of the easy meals. Small flashy jigs, spoons, swimbaits, and small swimming plugs are all a good way to go around the minnow schools. The Juno Beach Pier continues to produce good catch and release snook action, as does Jupiter Inlet. The snook are also along the beach in very good numbers right now. Calm clear conditions provide for good chance to sight fish some big ones cruising in the first trough.
