Palm Beach County Schools start on Monday...GO FISHING this weekend before it does!
OFFSHORE- The wahoo should still be around this weekend. May not be the same numbers as last weekend, but the wahoo will be around for the next few weeks. Low light periods, early morning/evening, of the day will give you the best chance at getting a wahoo bite. Wether you try trolling (high speed and slower speeds) or livebaiting for the wahoo be sure to try and get the bait down suspended below the surface. Getting the baits down helps put it in the wahoo's zone, and will help keep a bonita or two away. Dolphin fishing is very hit or miss, with most of the dolphin coming from way offshore. Inside on the 120' ledge the bonita and sharks are as thick as can be. If your looking for something to pull on, the ledge is the place to go right now! Snapper fishing has been day to day, with some nice muttons hanging around in 80-90' of water off Jupiter. Fresh sardines fished on a slide rig is the best bet for the mutton snapper. Be prepared to pick some assorted junk fish on the bottom before the snapper decide to bite.
INSHORE- Catch and release snook fishing remains the best game inshore. Low light periods and nighttime are the time to look for the linesiders. Try to fish the first of the outgoing tide for the best luck with the snook. Small tarpon are hanging out in Lake Worth (mainly around Old Port Cove). Look for the little tarpon to be active and rolling early and late in the day. Small live baits and shrimp are a good choice to cast at the rolling baby silver kings. Mangrove snapper fishing has been good at night around the bridges. Small pilchards and live shrimp are the best bait choices for the snapper.
SURF/PIER- As August ticks away from us stay on the lookout for the mullet to start showing up on the beach. The finger mullet will be the first to start trickling down the beach. The snook and tarpon will the first to find the schools of mullet; and then the jacks, sharks, and bluefish shouldn't be far behind. In the meantime, while we wait for the mullet, the snook fishing remains very good along the beach and at the inlets. Bait schools are still around the Juno Beach Pier. With the bait should be snook, bonita, jacks, and other assorted predators. Still a few reports of some snappers around Jupiter Inlet
