OFFSHORE: Reports were slim this week after the storm; and a building swell from Hurricane Jose won't make things all that nice this weekend either. Dolphin fishing has been good with lots of debris around. BE sure to take it easy running around, and keep your eyes peeled for any half sunken debris if you do make it out. Sounds like the best dolphin fishing has been in 700-800' of water; with the overall size of the fish being pretty good. Trolling ballyhoo, or drifting live finger mullet around floating debris has been a good bet for the dolphin. Snapper fishing should also be good following the storm; but again reports have not been coming in this week to confirm or deny that.
SURF/PIER: The mullet have been on the beach; and the fish are here with them. The snook, tarpon, jacks, sharks, bluefish, and hot of others are all in and around the mullet. Live mullet fished on the edge of the school is a good option, as is a loud noisy topwater or big swimming plug. The Yo-Zuri Mag Darter has been an especially good option around the mullet schools. Look for the fish to be most active first thing in the morning and then again late in the afternoon. The Juno Beach Pier is back open after the storm and should produce some very good snook fishing. Should also be some snapper being caught in the inlets and possibly at the pier.
INSHORE: The inshore fishing has been on fire after the storm. The mullet have shown up in a big way, and the snook are taking advantage of the endless buffet. Look for the best action to go down at night, or during very low light periods of the day. Mixed in with the snook will be jacks, tarpon, ladyfish, and more. Snapper are also being caught in the inlets, and another swell on the way should help keep them pushed in the inlet a little bit longer. Good fishing inshore right now, well worth going if you can!
