OFFSHORE- Nice looking weather forecast for the weekend, and some favorable winds (light east/northeast) should have the fish biting this weekend. Dolphin fishing improved a little this week for those making the run way offshore. 15-25 miles offshore from Palm Beach to Jupiter seemed to produce the best number of dolphin. Lots of small ones, but enough bigger fish around to keep things interesting. Look for the mahi-mahi to be hanging around weedlines, floating debris, rips, or under working birds. In a little closer blackfin tuna action seemed to pick up in 250-500' of water off Palm Beach Inlet. Hard to beat a nice assorted trolling spread of feathers, daisy chains, and small jethead lures for the little tuna. In on the 120' ledge the fishing is on fire (just maybe not for the most glamorous species). Loads of bonita, sharks, and big blue runners will keep the rods bent along the ledge. Mixed in will be some king mackerel and wahoo. The wahoo bite may not be as good as it was on the full moon, but those putting the time in early and late can expect a good shot at a wahoo. Bottom fishing was hit or miss this week.
INSHORE- Plenty of snook biting inshore right now. Snook season is just around the corner...Are you ready? Fish low light periods or at night for the best luck with the snook. Look for the bigger snook around bridges(especially those with deeper water and good current) on an outgoing tide. Still a fair number of baby tarpon hanging out in Lake Worth and Little Lake Worth. Look for the little tarpon to be most active early and late in the day. Other inshore action remains spotty.
SURF/PIER- Solid snook bite at the Juno Beach Fishing Pier going on. LIve baits (especially big sardines) are getting the most bites, but lures may even get a few bites early and late in the day. Bonita have been pushing some bait schools around the pier as well. Rumors of big schools of glass minnows and a few mullet up north mean we can't be too far away from the start of the mullet run. With northeast winds in the forecast this weekend, things may be starting to change
