OFFSHORE- Dolphin fishing remained good this week. Most of the better dolphin reports are coming outside of 500' of water; and the real good reports coming deeper than a 1000'. Look for the usual dolphin clues (birds, weeds, debris, and bait) and the fish won't be too far behind. Trolling squid, bonita strips, and small jet head style lures remains a good bet for the dolphin. Blackfin tuna are still biting in 200-300' of water. Small trolling feathers and small daisy chains are a good choice for the tuna. The moon will start getting bigger this weekend...hopefully the wahoo start to show up too. Looks like it will be good conditions to drag the high speed lures this weekend. Should be some of those striped ones around! Kingfish action remains very good along the 120' ledge. The kings are biting best during low light periods of the day. Early morning and/or late afternoon with some live sardines is a great combo for the kings right now! Snapper fishing has been good this week. Better reports on the bottom coming out of Jupiter Inlet these days. Should be a nice weekend...go get em!
INSHORE- Catch and release snook fishing remains the main game in town right now. The bridges are holding a good number of fish, as are the spillways. Look for the bridges to produce best on an outgoing tide, and the spillways to be good when the gates are open. Some nice jacks cruising the seawalls early in the morning. Mangrove snapper are hanging around the bridges; with the most action on them coming at night.
SURF/PIER- Catch and release snook fishing is absolutely on fire right now at the Juno Beach Pier. Lots of big snook showing up, and they are eating! Look for large live sandperch to get the biggest fish to eat! A lot of the time it's been harder to get a sand perch to bite than it has to get the snook to. Just a reminder, be careful with those big female spawning fish...they are our snook fishing future! The snook are also in Jupiter and Palm Beach Inlets in good numbers as well. Live baits will be the ticket during the day; while flair hawk jigs and big swimsbaits are a good choice at night. Snook fishing has also been good along the beach, especially on high tide. Look for the snook to be in the first trough picking out easy meals. The tarpon are still moving along the beach and around Palm Beach Inlet. Scattered mangrove snapper around the Jupiter Inlet jetty.
