OFFSHORE- Offshore reports have been almost non-existent this week. The few boats that did slide out reported seeing a few sailfish around, mostly in 200-250' of water. No dolphin reports to speak of, but that should improve with easterly winds in the forecast. Look for the dolphin to be in a bit closer than they have been. It's anybodies guess, but 350-500' of water could be a good starting spot for the dolphin. KIngfish remain scattered along the 120' ledge. NO big schools to speak of, but a decent number of them around. Snapper fishing reports remain a bit spottty for the most part.
INSHORE- Snook fishing has been good inshore over the past week. The bridges are producing a fair number of bites at night. Stick to the bigger baits and lures now as the snook are keyed in on eating mullet right now. SpoolTeks, flairhawks, and Yo-Zuri Mag Darters are all good choices for the snook right now. A few reports of some tarpon in Palm Beach Inlet, but nothing super consistent to speak of. Other inshore reports are a bit slow still
SURF/PIER- Less than ideal conditions along the beach have kept reports to a minimum this week for the most part. The snook are still around, but large amounts of seaweed have made getting to them tough. If your throwing lures, its just a lot of casts and hope to slide past the seaweed. The Juno Beach Pier is producing some snook bites, but bait has been tough. Try fishing dead sardines on the bottom, lazy snook often can't refuse the easy meal. Still a good number of snook in the Jupiter Inlet, with live croakers and sandperch being the top bait choice for them. No real sign of the mullet yet, but that will no doubt change just about anytime. Choppy semi-muddy water slowed the Spanish Mackerel bIte this week.
