OFFSHORE- Dolphin fishing remained good this week, with quality fish over quantity being the case. Trolling in 200-400' of water seems to be producing dolphin bites pretty good, with live baits under the kite also getting bites. Sailfish action has started to improve; and should only get better with each cold front. Live goggle eyes and blue runners will be the bait of choice for the sails. Look of the sailfish to be in 100-250' of water; with areas holding bait, defined color changes, and good current being the keys to find good numbers of sails. Bottom fishing reports have been slow with the weather, but should improve over the next few days.
INSHORE- Snook are still biting week, and with season coming to a close; now is the time to bio get one! Look for the snook to be feeding around the bridges at night. Outgoing tide will produce the most bites, and keep the baits bigger if your looking for a slot size snook. The snook are still eating mullet good, so flair hawks and big swim baits are great choices for the snook. Jacks are around in good numbers, and provide good rod bending action when the snook don't want to bite. A live mullet or Zara Spook fished along a seawall will most likely not go unnoticed buy a snook or jack for long right now. Other inshore action has remained spotty, but should improve as the inshore waters start to cool off a little bit.
SURF/PIER- Spanish Mackerel action has been good this week, with some good catches coming along Juno Beach and Singer Island. Small clark spoons and Flash minnow jigs will catch them acs right now. Bluefish are biting silver spoons and cut bait, with the best action early in the morning and late in the afternoon. Pompano action slowed this week, but a few fish are still being caught. Dirty water and lots of seaweed had fishing tough, but it looks like conditions should be improving as we move towards the weekend.
