OFFSHORE- Relatively quiet offshore this week...largely due to less than ideal conditions for a better part of the week. A few boats did manage to slide out; and for the most part found a decent number of dolphin. The dolphin for the most part were on the smaller side; with a handful of bigger fish in the mix. A little rougher weather had the sailfish snapping for a few days, with a handful of boats getting 5-10 chances. Moon is getting bigger, which should start to get the wahoo fired up. Conditions look good on Sunday for the wahoo for sure. Kingfish remain scattered along the 120' ledge. Snapper reports were a bit hit or miss this week, largely due to the weather. As conditions get a little better, expect the bottom fishing to get better.
INSHORE- Catch and release snook fishing remains the main game in town...one more week till they can come home for dinner. Looks like the wind should blow into the weekend and keep them biting good in the river. A few small pods of finger mullet have trickled through, it won't be long now before it's full on mullet run. Still a pretty good pick on the mangrove snapper inshore. Best action has been at night, especially on good moving water. Live shrimp and pilchards have been the baits of choice for the snapper.
SURF/PIER- Rough conditions and less than ideal water conditions had fishing relatively slow this week along the beach. Some fair catch and release snook fishing reports, but a bit slower than the past few weeks. The Juno Beach Pier has still been producing a few snook as well. The Pier has had a few Spanish Macs and blue runners around, along with a fair number of mangrove snapper.
