Been a very busy week for us setting up the new shop; in the effort of full disclosure getting fishing reports has not been at the top of the list. This weeks report may be a bit brief...
OFFSHORE- The June full moon did not disappoint with good wahoo catches out of both Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlets this week. A few wahoo were caught high speed trolling, a few live baiting, and a few on split-tail mullet at slower speeds. If the June full moon is any indication of the July and August moons...it'll be a nice wahoo season for South Florida! Dolphin fishing remains good, with some nice fish for those spending the time to search out good water and fishy areas. In towards the ledge kingfish are biting in 90-120' of water early in the morning and again late in the afternoon. Snapper fishing has been good agin this week, with some very nice mutton and yellowtail snapper being caught.
INSHORE- Catch and release snook fishing is good at night around the bridges. Look for the snook to bite best on an outgoing tide, especially at bridges closer to the inlets. A flair hawk jig, big swim bait, or live bait is a good choice for getting a snook bite these days. Sheepshead are hanging around area bridges and seawalls. Look for big jacks cruising ICW seawalls early in the morning.
SURF/PIER- Snook are hanging out around the Juno Beach Pier and along the beach in good numbers. Look for the snook to be most active during low light periods of the day. Sandperch, croakers, and whiting are hanging out in the first trough; and for the most part are willing to bit small pieces of fresh cut shrimp. A few schools of big jacks and tarpon are moving north along the beach early in the morning.
SHOP UPDATE- The move went great last weekend, and we are just about set up in the new shop(look for some cool updates tomorrow). UNFORTUNATELY we have a few things out of our control that are going to keep us from reopening for the weekend. We are hopeful to be open early next week, and are super excited for everyone to check out the new shop!
GOOD LUCK THIS WEEKEND AND THANKS FOR READING!
