OFFSHORE- Spotty dolphin fishing again, with most fish coming in 500-1000' of water. Most of the fish have been on the smaller side, with a few decent ones in the mix. Look for the dolphin to be around weedlines, floating debris, and areas with lots of bait. Still a blue marlin or two hanging around those little dolphin when you find them. In along the 120' ledge action is pretty hot. Lots of kingfish, bonita, sharks, and a few wahoo around. Bottom fishing was very good this week, with some solid mutton snapper catches coming in.
INSHORE- Main game in town will be catch and release snook fishing on the inshore side of things. With super warm temps the fish are not super active right now. Fish early in the morning or late in the afternoon for best luck. Mixed in with the snook have been a handful of tarpon and jacks. A handful of mangrove snapper around, but no real numbers.
SURF/PIER- Catch ad release snook fishing remains Overall its tough fishing inshore right now. very good along the beach, at the Juno Beach Pier, and in both Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlet right now. Lots of different (from heavy tackle live bait battles, light tackle sight fishing, and plenty of ways in between) ways to catch them right now, so feel free to come by the shop and get the rundown on some of your different options. Look for the snook to be most active early in the morning, late afternoon, or at night. If yoyu have to fish during the day, try and time it with the last of the incoming or first of the outgoing tide. The surf has been producing a few big jacks early in the morning, but not huge numbers of them. Still a fair number of tarpon around, but not as many as they are seeing up north. Fair number of croaker and sandperch hanging around in the first trough. Scattering of Spanish Mackerel around over the past week.
