OFFSHORE: Not much to report offshore after almost a week of non-stop rain mixed in with some on and off windy days. The full moon is coming so if the weather allows the wahoo should be around in 100-250' of water. It's time to get the high speed gear back out and start beating up the ledge. Those not into the high speeding deal will be well suited to pull horse ballyhoo, split tail mullet, or bonita strips behind a planer or trolling sinker. If the sun doesn't come back out keep the lures on the dark side, go with blue/white or pink/white if the sun does peek it's head back out. No dolphin reports to speak of, gonna just take some running and gunning to find them. Kingfish action has remained very good from 100-120' of water. The kingfish bite has bounced back and forth from the Juno Beach Pier to the Loran Tower. Live sardines are the absolute best bait for the kings. Snapper fishing remains good in the same areas as the kingfish. Sardines remain the bait of choice for the snapper.
INSHORE: The week of rain has the spillways open and the snook are biting. Remember It's all catch and release fishing now. Flair hawk jigs and big swimbaits are the lures of choice at the spillways. Should be a handful of tarpon mixed in with the snook at the spillways as well. Look for the low light periods of the day to produce best, but if it stays overcast the fish will bite well throughout the day generally speaking. Been some big jacks cruising around in the ICW and Loxahatchee River willing to bite a large mullet and at certain times a big noisy topwater. Other inshore action has been hit or miss this week with the weather.
SURF/PIER: Pompano reports were all but will this week...they may have finally left us for the summer. Scattered schools of jacks and a few tarpon are roaming the beach right now. The jacks have been biting first thing in the morning and are reachable from the beach. The tarpon for the most part have been moving outside of casting range from the beach. The schools of tarpon that are around are super spooky and tough to trick into eating so far. Catch and release snook fishing at the Juno Beach Pier and along the beach has really started to fire off. Just remember that those big girls are the future of snook fishing...handle them with care!
