OFFSHORE- Next few days look pretty nice for a run offshore, and the fishing justify's it big time right now! Good dolphin fishing this week in 200-600' of water from south of Palm Beach Inlet to the Loran Tower. Trolling the usual assortment of dolphin baits (Squid, strips, ballyhoo, etc) should produce well. Mixed in with the dolphin have been a fair number of early season sailfish. Kingfish action is good along the 120' ledge. Snapper reports sound pretty solid as well in 80-95' of water. Sardines (which at the time of writing we have back in-stock!) are the bait of choice on the bottom. Don't be surprised if a cobia or two joins the mix.
INSHORE- Snook fishing remains very good inshore right now. The mullet continue to flow through and the snook are taking full advantage. Look for the snook to be stacked up around the bridges at night. Fish a moving tide for best results, and even though the fish are around and biting well; be prepared to put some time in to catch them. Tarpon are also mixed in with the snook in decent numbers.
SURF/PIER- The Juno Beach Pier has had some pretty good fishing this week. Slight change in the weather has some of our fall species starting to show. Bluefish and pompano are biting at the pier in pretty good numbers, as are a fair number of redfish ad a few nice tripletail. A Doc's goofy jig is a solid lure choice for all around action on the pier right now, as is a live shrimp on a jighead. The tarpon are around mullet schools, but it does seem to be slowing down just a bit on them. Snook action remains fair along the beach, but will begin to slow as more bluefish begin to show.
