West Palm Beach Fishing Report 11/26/20 | Fishing Forecast

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach - Snapper (Mutton) and Wahoo

The fishing has been on fire the lately and it should continue through the holiday weekend. Wahoo are the star of the show right now as the bigger ones are being caught almost daily. High Speed Trolling is producing early in the morning or at sunset, but the big ones are coming from trolling large ballyhoo with a large Ilander on either a planer or trolling weight. The Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) bite has been red hot and the great part is that they are in close. Gaffer Mahi are being caught from 90’-300’ and are taking all sorts of offerings. Pull a mixed spread of lures and ballyhoo or setup in about 200’ and live bait for them. If you are live baiting, there is also a good chance you will hook up with some decent Tuna (Blackfin). If you are a kite fisherman, this is the perfect weekend to dust off your setup and get tight. Sharpen up your filet knife because you are going to need it if you are bottom fishing this weekend. The bite has been red hot and everything is chewing right now. Snapper (Yellowtail) are all over the shallow reefs in 40’-70’ and there are plenty of flags in the mix. Rainbow Runners are mixed in with the Yellowtail so do no scale down your tackle as dramatically as you usually would. Small jig heads tipped with ballyhoo chunks or a fish finder rig with half a small sardine are getting the bites. Snapper (Mutton) are out deeper in 150’-200’ and are hitting double hook whole sardines on long fish finder rigs or medium size jigs. African Pompano are also out there and coming up regularly. Put a goggle eye on a knocker rig and send it down near any structure that is deeper than 150’.

What's Biting Inshore in Palm Beach - Snook

High tides will be falling right around sunrise and sunset this week with lows coming around mid-day and midnight. Favorable NE winds are forecasted all week, meaning chillier nights and a good bite. Inshore fishing has been great all week and is expected to get even better as temperatures drop and the wind lays out a bit over the next couple of days. Snook have been biting very well on the bridges in West Palm Beach. Make sure you have a few different variations of shrimp-like lures with you. The fish have been feeding mostly on the shrimp but feeding in different ways depending on the wind conditions, tide and area you are fishing. Try covering different sections of the water column to dial in on how the Snook are feeding at that time and don’t be afraid to switch it up. Slow sweeping shrimp tail jigs near the bottom and drifting weightless shrimp just under the surface have both been working well depending on the conditions. The boat docks and sea walls have had some solid Jack Crevalle action with a few big Snook in the mix as well. Get out there first thing in the morning and fish a large live mullet or large topwater lure to make a lot of commotion on the surface. Snapper (Mangrove) and Snapper (Mutton) have been biting extremely well inshore with some really nice fish reported from around the Blue Heron Bridge. Get out there on the outgoing tide with fresh or frozen live or dead bait with a 1 oz sliding egg sinker rig. Make sure you are getting your bait in the bottom structure for the best success.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report - Pompano and Spanish Mackerel

Surf and Pier fishing has been tough with the strong winds and dirty water, but the conditions are looking like they will begin stabilizing for most of the week which will lay out the surf a bit and present some great fishing opportunities. The reports we are seeing have been only fair at best, but this week should really bring some much better fishing. Pompano and Spanish Mackerel have been the big talk of the surf and pier recently. Mostly smaller Pompano being reported right now, but definitely some keepers in the mix. The Pompano bite should certainly be increasing rapidly this week with lighter the NE winds persisting for most of the week. It’s about time for the Spanish Mackerel to start biting really well in the surf too. We have seen a few around recently but are still waiting for that big push of fish to come through. Both the Pompano and Spanish Mackerel fishing will only be getting better and better from here. Blacktip, Spinner and Hammerhead sharks have all been prevalent along the surf in West Palm Beach recently as well. Anglers fishing for them have been reporting that a fresh chunked bait will get picked up quick right now if you can get it out there. This week looks like a good bet to get out there and hook some beasts off the beach!

Palm Beach Fishing Report Nov 20, 2020 | Fishing Forecast

What's Biting Inshore in Palm Beach - Jacks

With the surf being really rough this week the bridges and back inshore waters have been the more productive zone, and the weather forecast right now looks like that will remain the story all week. When the inlet is too rough to fish, the bridges are always the place to be. Look for the Snook to be stacked up along the shadow line right now feeding on the last few of the mullet flushing out and the shrimp coming through the lights. If you can see the fish actively fishing in the lights or along the shadow line, pitch a small weightless shrimp and let it flow naturally back through the shadow line just under the surface. If there is no visible action happening around the structure you are fishing, try fishing a shrimp tail along the bottom with a 1 or 1.5 oz jig head. The best action for the Snook has been being reported around the top and bottom of the outgoing tide. The bridges in West Palm Beach have been holding a fair number of resident Tarpon as well during the incoming tide. They are more keyed in on the mullet than the shrimp so larger presentations have been working best for them. With the weather forecasted this week, and the amount of bait moving around in the ICW and backwaters of West Palm Beach, these bridges, sea walls, boat docks and channels will certainly be your best bet at encountering some solid Snook action this week in the wind.

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach - Wahoo

Finally some good weather this past week and the fish were hungry. Every angler we spoke to had found a good bite from nearshore waters to the sword grounds. Wahoo was the big story this week as anglers found them fishing in close high speed trolling as well as out deep under debris. This weekend may not have the strongest of tidal push but those striped monsters are still out there. Early morning is always best to target some wahoo. Use a horse ballyhoo with an Ilander Black Hole in front of it and get it down with a planer or large trolling weight, at least 36 oz. Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) are still chewing well and should continue to do so over the next week. The great thing is that they are in close, at least the smaller ones. If you want to get some meat in the cooler and do not loke to run far offshore then drop a few lines around the ledge and start trolling around. The big Mahi Mahi were our deeper in 800’+. The really clean water was out past 600’ and the further anglers got the bigger the prize. Reports of 40lb Mahi were coming in all weekend and they should still be out there. Finding debris is going to be the best way to easily locate those big ones. The Snapper bite continues to improve and there are some impressive fish being caught lately. Snapper (Mutton), Snapper (Yellowtail) and Snapper (Mangrove) all are hitting the usual bag of sardines and jigs. The big muttons are on the deeper side of the ledge in 150’-200’ still with a few mixed in with the Yellowtails in 80’-90’. Spanish Mackerel were also out in closer to shore in less then 60’ and were attacking anything shiny pulled in front of them. Grab a small prismatic spoon and start casting at any boils you see in the depth this week. Lastly, the Sailfish are moving in and they are a chewin. Many anglers got them on kites but they were also taking trolled ballyhoo and live baits drifting the ledge. The weekend should have them fired up for an excellent Monday bite.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report - Pompano

Lots of East North East winds in the forecast this week which should be pushing tons of bait inshore, and getting those fish along the surf, piers and inlets moving well. The inlets and surf will remain pretty much unfishable but if you safely sneak out towards the tip of the jetty, you should find some success with Snook and possibly even get lucky with a big Tarpon this week. Also, with the rough surf, the Mutton Snapper bite should be heating up pretty good. Once this weather begins to lay out a bit, we really should be seeing some quality Mutton Snapper reports from the surf, piers and inlets. The rough surf also has the Pompano bite going fairly well right now, the bite should continue to increase as the east winds persist throughout the week. Sand Fleas, Shrimp, Pompano Jigs and Fish Bites have all been working well for the Pompano recently. You may need to bump up the size of your pyramid sinker when fishing on the beach this week to hold bottom and find those bites.

What's Biting Inshore in Palm Beach - Tarpon and Snook

This weeks weather forecast is looking promising for the inshore anglers in West Palm Beach. With the winds switching back to North East where they will stay for the greater part of the week, expect the fish to be chewing good. Some scattered showers and thunderstorms are forecasted throughout the week, but that should only help the bite even more. Snook, Tarpon, Jack Crevalle, Bluefish, Pompano and Snapper all go crazy for this kind of weather. Perfect tides this week for inshore anglers in West Palm Beach as well this week. High and Low tide will be falling right around sunrise and sunset while slack low will occur around midnight and mid-day this week. Expect to experience some great bite windows around these times this week. We are also right around the new moon phase so expect to see the king tides in full effect while out fishing this week, its always best to be fishing right around that new moon phase so this week is really looking to be a good one. Snook and Tarpon have been feeding well on the last of the mullet on the bridges. The best action reported has been during the outgoing tide around the bridges. Flair hawks, large swimbaits, and shrimp tail jigs have all been productive lures on the bridges recently. A few big muttons were reported in between the wind from the Blue Heron Bridge and in Phil Foster Park too. Look for them to be taking sardines, pilchards and cut mullet for bait this week.  

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach - Tuna (Blackfin)

Time to fill the cooler with meat this weekend. The bite is going to be on. Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) are all over but are concentrated around the 400’-600’ mark. Look for rips or debris. If you find a rip, get your lines out and start trolling it. Have those pitch rods when the schools come up to the boat as they are running in decent sized groups. Tuna (Blackfin) are mixed in with the Mahi so make sure to have a small feather wayyyy back in your spread. The tidal coefficient is RIPPING this weekend and the Wahoo are going to be chewing. The tides are incoming in the mornings so work the shallower side of your usual Wahoo trolling pattern in depth around 90’-200’ focusing more on the top of the ledge as the bait will be pushing up against it. Cobia are still chewing well in the 60’-80’ range and a jig is the best way to get tight on them. Snapper (Mutton) are also biting and some big ones have been coming over the side. Look at depths between 150’-200’ for the bigger ones. Just make sure to keep a flat line out when you are drifting as Mahi are being spotted in close as well. Finally, Saturday is just enough wind to keep the kites up easily but not too windy that only the big boats can go out. If you have a small boat, get a couple kite lines out and you will most likely get tight on a Sailfish, Mahi or Tuna.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report - Pompano

Surf fishing is looking to be good this week in West Palm Beach. It has finally calmed down in the last few days as the wind switched around. Although it is changing back to North East, the storm has passed, and it should be blowing just enough to churn the waves perfectly for surf fishing this week. Great tides for the surf this week as well with highs falling right around sunrise and sunset. Look for the Pompano to be thick in the surf this week. Lots of shorties around right now but you can pick through a few of them and get your keepers in the mix. Some really large Pompano were reported from the piers last week and this week’s surf forecast looks to be prime time for them. Blacktip, Spinner, Bull and Hammerhead Sharks should be showing themselves this weekend as well with all the Bluefish and small Jack Crevalle around in the surf. The inlet has been productive for Snook and Snapper this week with a few Tarpon and Bluefish reported as well. Look for the Snook and the Muttons to be chewing best in the inlet. Sweep swimbaits or flair hawk jigs along the bottom for the Snook. You may even get lucky and hook a few Tarpon this way. Long fluorocarbon leaders with a small hook and cut bait has been working well for Muttons in the inlet with both numbers and sizeable fish reported last week. The tide, wind and moon forecast all look like they will align this week which should result in some prime-time action.

What's Biting Inshore in Palm Beach - Snook

It looks like another week of foul weather for the inshore anglers in West Palm Beach. This weekend will consist of more hard East winds with scattered thunderstorms. By Tuesday, the wind will switch to South East, which it looks like it will be blowing for the remainder of the week. Get out now while you can. The inshore bite has been on fire during these hard-East winds we have been having, and it is predicted to continue until the wind switches. The South East blow could very likely shut down the good bite anglers have been experiencing around West Palm Beach lately. The good news is that we have very favorable tides for inshore fishing this week. Low tides will be falling right around sunrise and sunset while high tides will be right around mid-day and midnight, with moonrise happening around 9:30 pm and moonset around 11 am. These will all be great times to find a good bite window while fishing this week. We are approaching the third quarter moon with the new moon approaching next week, current flow should not be too strong this week. Snook fishing has been on fire recently and the action should persist as the mullet run fades away and the shrimp flush really begins. The last of the mullet are trickling through and the fish are taking advantage of one of their favorite meals before they are all gone. Some of the Snook have already begun hitting on shrimp pretty good.

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach - Mahi Mahi

Very few anglers made it out the past week and the fish are hungry. The few small weather windows kept anglers close to shore but the bite was still hot. Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) were all over from 30' to 500'. Trolling was a tough game but the reward was worth it. There were also a few sailfish mixed in along the ledge. This weekend is another windy one but there looks to be a few windows that you can sneak out and put some meat in the boat. Stick to weighted lure and baits that can handle the chop out there and do not be afraid to troll at slower than usual. The mixed seas will add to your lure/baits action. Stay close in to shore in case you have to make a run for the inlet as the weather can change fast with storms around.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report - Tarpon

Anglers fishing the bridges in West Palm Beach reported better bites on shrimp than the mullet last week, so make sure you have some shrimp tails or live shrimp to accompany your arsenal while bridge fishing this week. There has been a variety of different sized baitfish stacked up in the Lake Worth Inlet so a variety of different sized presentations have been working, just make sure you are presenting your lures close to the bottom to get bit by a Snook. Some Tarpon, Jack Crevalle and Bluefish have been mixed in with the Snook, especially closer to the inlet. These fish feed closer to the surface, and as long as the swell in the Inlet and along the beach persists throughout the week the bite should continue. Hopefully, we will see a better push of Spanish Mackerel in West Palm Beach this week. The conditions are right, but we have not had any real solid reports of them yet. With the first cold fronts of the year finally coming through, it wont be long before some Sheepshead, Black Drum and Redfish show up in our local water. This week is looking like a great time to get out and do some scouting for these guys taking up their winter habitats on the bridge pilings, boat docks and other structures with lots of growth for them to feed on.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

Finally, we are seeing some good cold fronts here in West Palm Beach! The foul weather, and hard NE winds was definitely enough to push some bait in and get the fish moving around good this week. Anglers fishing the surf and jetties in West Palm Beach reported hot Snook action, especially late in the afternoon and early in the morning. The rocks have been challenging to navigate at night due to the huge swell, but beach pockets and fishing deeper in the inlets have been productive as an alternative to standing on the rocks. Big Snook, Jack Crevalle, Bluefish, Tarpon, Spanish Mackerel, Snapper (Mangrove) and Snapper (Mutton) have all been reported caught around the Inshore waters of West Palm Beach this week. Look for the Jack Crevalle and Bluefish to be feeding on the surface either in the inlet or along the beaches and hit them with a topwater lure skipping across the surface or a big flashy spoon.

Cold Front Kept Boats at Dock

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

A good number of Blacktip and Spinner sharks have been reported hot on the tails of the Bluefish. Fresh chunks of Bluefish is the best way to get tight on a shark off the beach right now, but most fresh chunked baits will work! The bridges in West Palm Beach have been productive for Snook this week as well, most of the reported action has been at night on the bridges but we did have some slot Snook reported from anglers fishing early mornings and right around sunset as well. Many of the anglers fishing the local bridges have reported that the mullet has started to thin out and the fish have been hitting on Shrimp. Drifting weightless artificial shrimp through the light line, sweeping shrimp tails with a jig head along the bottom, and fishing with live shrimp has all been productive for the Snook recently.

What's Biting Inshore in Palm Beach

Some great inshore action taking place in West Palm Beach this week. Snook fishing is currently the main game with Jack Crevalle, Tarpon and Bluefish fighting for second place. The bridges at night, sea walls in the early mornings and evenings and the inlets have all been producing well in the last couple of days. There are still a decent amount of mullet around and the fish have been feeding on both the mullet (when they’re around) and small shrimp. Look for the Snook to be feeding on the bridges at night during the outgoing tide. Incoming has produced a few fish as well this week, but the best action is towards the lower end of the tide when the mullet have been pushing through. Fish mullet sized presentations right along the shadow line on the bridges for the Snook. Lures that are the same size as the mullet have been producing extremely well along with 2-3 inch shrimp imitations. Of course, live mullet and shrimp are always a top choice as well.

Palm Beach Offshore Fishing Report

The weather put a damper on anglers getting out of West Palm Beach the past week. There were a few weather windows and the fish were chewing. It is always frustrating when we have a long period of high winds and bad weather in West Palm Beach, but if you pay attention to the weather predictions, you can find small windows to get out there. Even though there are small windows to get out, it still is likely that you will not have ideal conditions. Most anglers in West Palm Beach will opt to bottom fish or drift fish during those times. This week, those that did get out found some quality sized Snapper (Yellowtails). They were mixed in with the Snapper (Muttons) just over the top of the West Palm Beach ledge in 110’. Anglers know that when you are fishing the bottom, you also need to have other lines out. Those that had a live bait out on a flat lines pulled in some quality Dolphin (Mahi Mahi). Although the schools were not large in numbers, there were some serious gaffers in the mix. Cobia are still hanging around West Palm Beach in the 60’-80’ mark and working a jig around structure us almost a guarantee to get tight.

Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

The inlet bite slowed down a bit this week, but a few pushes of Jack Crevalle and Bluefish have been coming through during the day with anglers catching them on large, noisy topwater lures. Snook and Tarpon have been feeding on the mullet in the inlet at night. If you are looking to fish early in the morning or right around sunset, check the Flagler and Okeechobee sea walls for Snook and Jack Crevalle on the hunt for a topwater lure! They are not always there, but when the bait is, hungry fish will be too!

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

With all the rain, North East winds, new moon tides still in effect and mullet around, the inshore bite has been on fire. Snook and Snapper (Mangrove) have been chewing good in the backwater while the Lake Worth Inlet has been alive with Bluefish, Jack Crevalle, Sharks, Tarpon, Snapper (Mangrove) and a few other species in the mix as well. Early morning and late in the afternoon have been the best times to get tight. Look for surface activity and present a large topwater lure quickly along the surface for the Blues and the Jacks, they are tons of fun!

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach

The past week has been a blow out and kept most anglers at port. The few brave souls that ventured out during the small weather windows got tight on a mixed bag of fish. Reports of Snapper (Mutton), Wahoo and Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) were all taken along the ledge using live bait. Trolling can be tough when the winds are howling. Running a spread of live baits that are staggered throughout the water column is a quick way to get some meat in the boat when you only have a small window to fish.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

The Snook have been feeding best on the bridges at night. The top of the tide has been the ticket this week with slot fish being caught during the last hour of the incoming tide and first two hours of the outgoing tide. The feeding window has broadened quite a bit this week, and it seems that they have been feeding for longer periods of time this week. Live mullet, swimming plugs, flair hawk jigs and large profile swimbaits are all top choices to fool a Snook right now. Try matching the size of the baitfish in the area you are fishing. If you find that you are having trouble getting a bite with artificial lures, put the rod down for a few minutes and spend some time watching the baitfish. The mullet move in a very specific way, especially when there are hungry Snook hot on their tail. The Snook watch these baitfish run by them all day and night, so they are keyed in on EXACTLY what to look for. Focus on presenting your bait or lure exactly how a live baitfish swims naturally, adjust your presentation accordingly and you might just fool that hungry Snook!

What's Biting Inshore in Palm Beach

Inshore fishing has been productive this week with the main game being slot sized Snook. The mullet are around, but the majority of them have pushed out recently. When the mullet are thick, it is much more difficult to present your lure in a way that it stands out to the fish. The Snook, unlike many other predatory species around right now, key in on one single baitfish before eating it, so when there is less bait around, your bait or lure stands out and has a higher chance of getting popped by that Snook.

Palm Beach Offshore Fishing Report

This week the bite picked up across the board. Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) are being caught everywhere from the ledge out to 1200’. The deeper you go, the bigger they are. While there are many reports of anglers catching slingers and gaffers along the ledge, the big ones have been out past 600’. Most anglers are finding success trolling a mix of naked and skirted ballyhoo. There have been some impressive Snapper (Mutton) coming over the rail all week. The magic depths for the big ones have been in 150’-200’ with either sardines or live pilchards. Snapper (Yellowtail) and Snapper (Mangrove) have been in closer just on top of the ledge, and although they have not been huge, they are being caught in good numbers. The surprise catches this week has been Cobia. Cobia are being caught near the breakers in 70’-90’ in good numbers with a few bruisers mixed in with them. Anglers got tight jigging with Shimano Butterfly or Coltsniper jigs working the bottom while drifting. Live google eyes on the bottom got the big ones to bite.

Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

Bridges have been the best places to start looking, especially on the outgoing tide this week. Flair Hawk jigs, paddle and straight tail swimbaits, lipped plugs and live mullet are all top choices for bridge fishing right now. The fish reported have been biting in small windows around the changing tides, so spend some time on the water to really dial in when that feeding window will occur. The inlets have had good Snook action this week as well, with a few Tarpon and schools of Jack Crevalle mixed in. Look for the Jack Crevalle and Tarpon to be feeding closer to the surface while the Snook are on the bottom. Snapper (Mangrove) fishing has been decent this week on the bridges at night on cut mullet and frozen shrimp on a sliding egg sinker rig with some large keepers in the mix.

Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

Good mullet pod action continued throughout this week bringing productive Snook fishing to the bridges, inlets, beaches, piers, sea walls and back canals. We really saw good improvement in the fishing from last week’s report until now. Snook action seems to be popping off all over the place. Plenty of slots, and even a few big overslot were reported this week from the bridges in West Palm Beach at night. Fish with live or cut mullet on the bottom for the best chance at a nice Snook right now, with ladyfish being the next best thing. Artificial anglers are throwing big swimbaits and chartreuse or white flair hawk jigs to catch the Snook. Snook action was best this week early in the morning before sunup and right around sunrise. Sunset is a great time to check out what is going on.

Palm Beach Offshore Fishing Report

Not many anglers made it offshore the past week but there were a few weather windows. There were some Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) reports from anglers running and gunning for birds and debris from 600’-1000’. Live bait chumming was the key to getting them to the boat. On the ledge there were some brag worthy Snapper (Muttons) hauled in on live bait and sardines in 90’-200’. Alongside the muttons some Snapper (Yellowtail) in 60’-110’ on live bait were caught as well as a Snapper (Vermillion) in 110’-200’ mainly from slow pitch jigging. Some Wahoo and King Mackerel (Kingfish) were caught pulling planers with either double skirted ballyhoo strips or swimming mullet in 70’-90’.

Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

There are great reports coming in from anglers fishing around the inlet in the early mornings reporting tons of big Snapper (Mangrove) and blue runners cruising around the rocks. Live or cut mullet have been the go to choice for the Snapper. There have been a few Tarpon mixed in with the Snook. The big schools of Jack Crevalle were not as prevalent in West Palm Beach this week, look for them to be coming in soon!

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

Mullet run action has continued throughout West Palm Beach this week with Snook, Tarpon, Jack Crevalle, Sharks, Blue Runners, and even a few Bluefish all following the bait schools. Although the feeding action was not as intense as last week in most places, plenty of bait is still being pushed around with fish on them. Look for the Palm Beach Inlet, Blue Heron Bridge and the ICW to have schools of mullet with some fish on them right now. Flair Hawk Jigs, Swimbaits, cut or live mullet, x-raps and large poppers have all been working well. Best action in the Inlets have been reported around the high tide during the day, while the bridges have been best in the late hours of the night when the mullet are coming through. Look for active mullet pods being worked by fish and try getting your bait or lure underneath the school. The Snapper bite has been good on the bridges at night on cut bait and anglers fishing at the inlet have reported good Snapper fishing after sunrise.

What's Biting Offshore West Palm Beach

The weather window this weekend allowed a lot of anglers to get on the water. Those that were not chasing fish in the mullet run made the run out to find Dolphin (Mahi Mahi). Unfortunately, they were few and far between with the same story as the past few weeks of if you find debris you get tight. Then Monday rolled around, and the Mahi bite turned on. Anglers found Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) on weed patches and temp breaks ranging from 500’-1200’. Not only were the Mahi biting in good numbers, but there were also a significant number of gaffers out there. Trolling naked ballyhoo was the ticket to get the big ones to commit. While the weekend warriors struck out chasing Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), those that went bottom fishing filled the coolers. Flag Snapper (Yellowtail) were chewing well at night anchoring up around 70’ feeding lines back in the chum slick. Big Snapper (Muttons) were chewing well during the day and anglers were not having to fight through as many shorts as the previous few weeks. Snapper (Mutton) reports were mainly in the 90’-120’ range. The anglers that pulled up the big girls were using extra long leaders of 30’-50’ fluorocarbon with either a double hook sardine or large ballyhoo chunk.

Fishing Report for Palm Beach Pier and Surf

Surf fishing has been great this week with the mullet run in full swing. Anglers fishing the Palm Beach Inlet and surrounding beaches had themselves one heck of a weekend! Big schools of bruiser Jack Crevalle storming the beaches and inlets, big tarpon rolling around and Snook blasting mullet out of the water have all been reported around West Palm Beach this week. Look for the best action to be early in the morning and late in the afternoon when there is big swell on the beach and in the inlet. When fishing active mullet pods this time of year, the key is to stand out from the rest of the baitfish in the water. Whether that means changing the profile of your bait or lure to something totally different than what the fish are feeding on, changing color to something bright or switching up the action of the lure you are using to mimic something else feeding on the mullet. When there are massive bait pods around like we have been seeing recently, you do not want to match the hatch and blend in! Make sure your lures are standing out from the masses and you should be able to get tight this week on some nice fish.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report

What a great weekend to be an inshore fisherman in West Palm Beach! The mullet have shown up and the run is officially on! All up and down the beach and in the Palm Beach Inlet this week, mullet were reported moving down the beaches in massive pods. One big pod was reported to be moving through the inlet with Tarpon, Jacks and Snook all in a feeding frenzy, though it was extremely difficult to find a bite. The Snook bite has been productive at night on the local bridges and in the inlets if you are willing to brave the rough surf. A few solid Tarpon reports have come in from the bridges and inlets at night as well.

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach

The bottom bite is still going strong for this time of year and anglers that fished. Anglers had success drifting fresh or live baits in 150’- 200’ for Snapper (Mutton) with some decent Snapper (Yellowtail) mixed in. Those same anglers that had a flat line and/or a live bait halfway down pulled in several King Mackerel (Kingfish) as well. The King Mackerel bite in general has been solid lately with most of the smokers coming deeper in the 150’-250’ marks but anglers are catching them in as shallow as 60’. Bumping live baits on downriggers got the big boys to eat. Those without live bait were still successful slow trolling double skirted and double hooked ballyhoo strips on planers. You will have to weed through some Bonita but that is just the game right now. The slow pitch jig anglers caught a great mixed bag this week pulling up Snapper (Vermillion), Muttons and some serious King Mackerel. There have been several reports of some big Golden Tilefish being brought up from the deep droppers and that should steadily improve along with the Vermillion bite. The Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) have been tough to find. It is all about finding debris, whether that be debris floating alone or part of a weed line. The normal weed lines and large patches holding bait have not been very productive. Those that found Mahi were out past 500’ and as deep as 1500’.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

The best action for the Tarpon seems to be along the beaches early in the morning. With the big surf coming in over the weekend, it was tough fishing. Do not let that discourage you though, this weekend was just the start and there will be plenty of fantastic fishing opportunities throughout the next few weeks. Throw big swimbaits, flair hawk jigs or anything that matches the size and profile of a big mullet or ladyfish for both the Snook and Tarpon right now. If you find yourself fishing in an active mullet school with no bites, try scaling up your presentation even larger to mimic something else feeding on the mullet like a ladyfish. Keep your eyes on the beaches and inlets during the day this week and check out a few bridges during the outgoing tide at night should get you tight on the fish this week. With the big surf coming in over the weekend, it was tough fishing.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

The mullet are beginning to make a good showing around West Palm Beach this week. Lots of finger sized mullet moving around on the beaches, inlets and the bridges at night with some fired up fish hot on their tails. Snook, Tarpon and big Jacks have all made solid appearances this week in the mullet pods. Look for the best action to be around the changing tides and for the outgoing tide at night. The beaches have been producing best before and during first light in the morning while the inlets have been producing well during low light conditions, in the evening and during the day. The bridges have been best late at night during the outgoing tide. Large paddle tail swimbaits, flair hawk jigs, and x-raps have all been the go-to lures right now, although a live lined mullet is your best bet. “Match the hatch” by making sure your lure presentation is the same size as the baitfish where you are fishing. This can be one of the best time periods for inshore fishing right now, because there is just the right amount of bait around. Once the mullet really starts getting thicker you may notice the fish becoming more and more difficult to fool. Solid snapper fishing happening right now around the inlets and bridges as well. Look for the best bite to be during the outgoing tide at night but daytime has been producing as well. Frozen shrimp and dead pilchards on a 1/0 hook fished below a 1 oz or smaller egg sinker or pinch weight has been getting the job done. Try using 18-24” of light fluorocarbon leader (12-25# test) for the snappers and you will get many more bites!  

Palm Beach Offshore Fishing Report

What is biting right now off of Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach? The storm had most boats at port this weekend but for the few that made it out before and afterwards, they were rewarded with a decent bite. Bigger Mahi are moving in daily and are still being found under birds and on debris. The wahoo fishing reports continue to be good with most catches coming from anglers pulling planers along with their normal trolling spread. Some Blackfin Tuna are also being caught alongside the Mahi for anglers trolling around 200’-400’. The sailfish bite got hot after the storm moved out, with anglers drifting live baits or kite fishing. The bottom bite has moved a bit deeper but remains good. Anglers are finding good numbers of Yellowtail and Mutton snapper in 120’-180’ drifting from the Breakers to Singer Island.

Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

The Juno Pier and nearby surrounding beaches have been producing good numbers of slot sized keeper Snook this week. Many anglers have been reporting the best bite coming on live and artificial shrimp which is somewhat unusual for this time of year. This is subject to change as soon as some more finger mullet begin appearing around the pier more. Some good Permit action has been reported from around the pier on crabs for bait. Some Pompano have still been around on the beaches but no crazy numbers to speak of just yet. Surf and pier action should really get going soon with the next big push of mullet making their way down the coast.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report

Snook season is here, and guys have already been reporting hot action for the slots. Lots of slot fish (and a few overs) were reported after midnight on Sept. 1st mostly from the inlets and bridges. There are still plenty of Snook to catch in the inlets, but it is apparent that they have really started moving farther back inshore. Look for the bridges closest to the inlets to produce the best Snook bites this week. Most of the fish being reported right now have been coming from the bridges at night on swimbaits, and some on Flair Hawk Jigs during the outgoing tide. Live and artificial shrimp have also been getting the job done on the slots and better numbers of under sized fish recently. The last hour of the incoming has been good to try too. Anglers fishing in the inlet reported the best action occurring on the incoming tide with Flair Hawk Jigs and large swimbaits.

Palm Beach Offshore Fishing Report

The bigger Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) are beginning to move in more and more every day. The good news is they are also moving in closer to shore. Anglers are having success pulling skirted and naked ballyhoo on weed lines, rips and under birds mainly in 600’-800’. For those lucky anglers that found debris, some great sized Tripletail were also caught. Bottom fishing remains good along the ledge in 80’-120’. Although, the Snapper (Mutton) bite was good, anglers had to sift through a lot of shorts, however, they were rewarded with some fat Muttons for their work. Some Snapper (Yellowtail) were caught in the same area but they were not as plentiful as the muttons. Those that went out early to take a shot at Wahoo had mixed results. Several Wahoo were taken on Nomad DTX 220s and bonita strips in Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach.

Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

Snookin has been productive along the beach this week and at the Juno Pier with plenty of anglers getting hooked up on nice sized Snook and even popping a few slots, according to the latest fishing reports. Look for the Snook bite to be best at night during the outgoing tide. Seems like live baits and mullet imitations have been producing well, but the pier anglers have been reporting that free lined shrimp are the go-to right now for slots. However, we are sure that will change soon when the finger mullet start showing up a little more. The inlets have been most productive for the last hour of incoming and first two hours of outgoing. The inlet bites have been spotty and are heavily dependent on if baitfish are present. The bite windows have been fairly short, but when it happens, the bite has been hot! Spanish Mackerel have been biting in good numbers around the Juno Pier this week. They are being caught mostly on popping corks above small spoons or free lined live baits. These guys are delicious table fare and a ton of fun to fight on light tackle. Some schools of big Jack Crevalle, a few Tarpon and some Bonita have been reported cruising around by the Juno Pier and along the surrounding beaches as well. Some good action to be had right now for the guys who enjoy walking the surf. A handful on Snapper (Mangrove) have been reported from a variety of different areas this week, most notably was the Jupiter Inlet.

What's Biting Inshore in Palm Beach

It is a great time to be inshore fishing in West Palm Beach, Jupiter and Boynton Beach. Snook season begins Sept 1, 2020, so get out this week and scope out some areas where slots might be hiding before the crowds do! Anglers will be allowed to keep one Snook between 28-32” per day. The Snook are currently transitioning from their summer spawning habits and moving farther inshore from the inlet and beaches, so bridges close to the inlet are a great place to start looking for Snook to be stacking up right now. Small, artificial shrimp lures swept through the bridge shadow lines are a great way to connect with some slots this season while Flair Hawk jigs and big swimbaits will likely produce some larger Snook bites.

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach

Not many anglers made it out this past week but the ones that did were rewarded. Fishing Reports came in of gaffer Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) being caught anywhere between 300’ to 1200’. The key was to find birds and then troll chugger heads to keep the lures down or ballyhoo on a planer or trolling lead. Some Wahoo were picked up along the edge in the mornings. Since it was tough high speed trolling with the seas, swimming mullet and double hooked ballyhoo with a mylar duster or ilander were the clear winners. The snapper bites continues to be good for this time of year. Double hook sardines and small live bait have produced some great Muttons and a few flag Yellowtails.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

The Juno Pier bite was hot this week with the foul weather pushing through. The Snook were fired up and biting well for the better part of the week on swimbaits and jigs. The beach anglers fishing the surf reported very similar situations as well. Spanish Mackerel have been around in better numbers this week too. With Snook season opening in just a few days, the Juno Pier will definitely be a hot spot for guys looking to pop that first slot fish. A couple pompano reports from the surf this week, as long as the east winds stick around the Pompano should as well.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report

What is being caught right now? Inshore fishing has been hot, and it is only anticipated to get much better as more and more mullet begin to push through. The bite has been good at a variety of different locations this week giving Snook anglers a ton of different options and techniques. The inlets are still producing very good Snook action, the mullet is starting to show up and there has been plenty of rain to keep things interesting at the spillways. Swimbaits that match the size of the mullet and flair hawk jigs have been the top producing lures for the Snook recently. While it is hard for them to turn down a good shrimp imitation flowing through a light line at night. The Snook have really been stacked up on the bridges at night during the outgoing tide. There have been a decent number of Tarpon and big Jack Crevalle mixed right in with the Snook so don’t be surprised to hook some by catch while Snook fishing this week!

What's Biting Offshore West Palm Beach

Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) fishing has been decent this week. The east winds all week seemed to push a bulk of the fish a little closer. Many catches have been reported coming from 300’-500’ of water this week versus the 1000’+ fishing reports we have been seeing lots of in previous weeks. The schools have been somewhat scattered throughout that depth and most of them are on the smaller side so trolling small feathers tipped with squid or bonita strips is a great choice right now. Make sure to locate some fishy water before sending your lines out. Look for signs of life like floating debris, areas holding bait, temperature changes and current breaks. Some Wahoo have been reported from the same structure that the Dolphin have been on. If you find some floating debris, have a flutter fall jig ready to drop down and look for that Wahoo bite down deep. The King Mackerel (Kingfish) have been biting well in 120’ of water and around the ledge. Slow trolling diving plugs or drifting with dead sardines are both great techniques to put some Kings in your cooler this week.

Fishing Report for Palm Beach Pier and Surf

The Juno Pier saw some good fishing opportunities this week. A few nice King Mackerel (Kingfish) were caught along with some Bonita off the end of the pier on casting jigs like diamond jigs and Shimano Coltsnipers and on plugs like the Rapala X-rap as well. Some Spanish Mackerel were caught this week at the pier and on the beach too, but they did not seem to be around in big numbers like we have been seeing. Snook fishing along the beach was good all week with guys throwing small lures and paddle tail swimbaits that imitate a small pilchard. Anglers using lures in the 3-4” range have been having the most success. The Snook bite was reported to be a bit off this week on the pier, but a fair number of nice fish still made their way into the net. There is a lot of small baitfish around right now and the Snook seem to be really keyed in on them along the beaches.

There have also been a good number of Tarpon feeding on the bridges at night, mostly around the incoming tide. Small, 3” soft plastics like the HyperPlastics DartSpin or a LiveTarget SlowRoll Shiner have been producing bites, but the fish are eating freelined pilchards and sardines on a 1/0-2/0 hook best. Make sure you are using light fluorocarbon leader for these Tarpon as they can be tricky to fool.

What's Biting Offshore West Palm Beach

Mahi fishing was hit or miss this week. Anglers willing to put the work in and run deep where able to put fish in the boat. Weed lines were prevalent from 500’ out with most Mahi being taken where birds were working and mostly in 900’-1500’ trolling small lures. Chunking the weed lines with dead and live bait were also effective. King Mackerel are being caught in 150’-200’ either bump trolling live baits, slow trolling planers with dead bait or working jigs tipped with 6” of wire. Muttons have been caught in good numbers on the ledge in 120’ with the larger keepers caught on long leaders with whole sardines or ballyhoo. Sharks have still been tough to get through at times so beef up your tackle to pull them up as quickly as possible. New Moon is coming, and the tidal coefficient is ripe for Wahoo this weekend, in Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach, peaking on Tuesday. Get out early and get your lines in before the sun comes up trolling between 90’-300’. Although we usually don’t talk about Sailfish in the summer, there has been a fair amount of Sailfish caught while trolling skirted or naked Ballyhoo in 200’-300’

Fishing Report for Palm Beach Pier and Surf

Snook and tarpon fishing has been good along the beaches and on the piers this week. Bigger swimbaits will work great at night while live baits have been producing during the day. Try downsizing your presentation to something like a Vudu Shrimp or a Hyperplastic Dartspin if trying your luck on the beach or at the pier during the day. Big jacks have been spotted cruising around the surf zone and around the Juno Pier. Throw a big piece of metal like a Shimano Coltsniper jig or a big topwater lure to catch the jacks. A few early season mullet have been showing up little by little, which is a very exciting sign for the inshore guys because it means the bulk of them are not far behind.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

A few fishing reports of early season finger mullet showing up really has the inshore guys fired up right now. Snook fishing has been great inshore with most reports coming from the bridges and inlets. Look for the fishing to be best for the last hour of incoming and first two hours of the outgoing tide. Live mullet and pilchards have been great bait choices to for catching a lot of Snook recently with guys reporting catches coming from big swimbaits and flair hawk jigs as well. With the mullet beginning to show up, the Snook have been keyed in on bigger baits so throwing large profile lures is the way to go right now. Some Jacks and Tarpon should be found in the mix as well if you are in the right place at the right time. Mangrove snapper fishing has been good inshore especially at night on small pilchards and shrimp.

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach

What is biting offshore right now in Jupiter, West Palm Beach adn Boynton Beach? It was a good weekend for Wahoo fishing as we came off the back side of the full moon. Wahoo were reported to be biting up and down the line from Jupiter to West Palm Beach from 100-350’ of water. Best bite, as usual, was reported to be during low light conditions like just before sunrise until about 8:30 in the morning and then again starting at about 6:00 p.m. until just after dark. During low light periods of the day, fish for the Wahoo in a little shallower water. Zig zagging from 100-200’ of water has been getting the job done. High speed trolling around the 120’ ledge is always a great starting point. Mid-day, try fishing a little deeper from 200’ out to 350’ of water. Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) was a zero or hero game. There were two scenarios that got anglers tight on some big Mahi. First, those that were running deep with radar investigated debris which was mostly in the 900’-1600’ range and site casting to schools. The sharks were out deep and had the Mahi spooked so the schools would move on as quick as they came in. Only the anglers that had their setups ready to pitch got the big boys to the boat. The other successes came from anglers that put the time in trolling rips. Some were obvious with weeds and tiny debris and others were small temp changes. Those anglers trolled a mix of ballyhoo and traditional lures then pitched to the following school. King Mackerel were in 80’ one day and then 250’ the next. Put your planers in, start shallow and work your way out. When you get a bite, that is the depth you need to be in that day. Bottom fishing was a mixed bag of Muttons and Yellowtails and the sharks were not as aggressive lately allowing more anglers to get quality fish up without paying the tax. The current was ripping at times near the ledge making holding bottom tough with light weights.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

When you can get past the sargassum on the beach, working a Live Target Slow Roller on a weighted hook has been hot off Singer Island for Snook and the occasional tarpon. Anglers on the Palm Beach Jetties have been finding the larger snook on the bottom by bouncing Flare Hawks or Vudu shrimp off the bottom. It has been tough with the massive matts of seaweed all over the place, but the fish are there!

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report

The inlets are the place to be if you want to be on the Snook this week. Large live baits like Croakers and Sand Perch are working best during the day and at night a big swimbait is hard to beat right now. Good Snook fishing has been reported from the bridges near the inlets at night this week on both live baits and 8” swimbaits too. The inshore Mangrove Snapper bite is great right now around the bridges at night on live or dead shrimp and pilchards.

Finally, some better Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) fishing reports to speak of this week and some consistency! The Dolphin were all reported from 1200’-1500’ of water this week. Most of the fish were small but a few nice sized bulls were mixed in. The schools of fish remain spread out so trolling a variety of baits to cover water is still going to be your best bet of finding the fish. The Kingfish are still biting well around the 120’ ledge from Jupiter to Palm Beach Inlet. Still a fair number of Wahoo around too from 150-350’ depending on the time of day you are fishing for them. Snapper fishing is still hot from 60’-90’, Yellowtail, Mutton and Mangrove Snapper are all being caught right now along the bottom with dead sardines.

Fishing Report for Palm Beach Pier and Surf

Some quality action reported over from the Juno Pier this week with a good mixed bag of species to catch right now. Rapala x-raps and swimbaits have been producing some really good fish first thing in the morning. Usually, the first hour after the Pier opens is the best time of day to throw artificial. A good number of Tarpon have been seen cruising around the pier early in the morning. The Kingfish have been reportedly biting well early in the morning on the x-raps. The Snook fishing has been as good as it gets over at the pier for the past few days. Live Croakers and Sand Perch are the best bait for the Snook right now.

What's Biting Inshore in Palm Beach

Catch and release fishing for Snook has been good this week inshore. Most of the Snook, especially the big ones, have taken up residency in the inlets and around the beaches for right now. Swimbaits, Flair Hawk Jigs and live baits have been producing the most action lately. If you like fishing in solitude, summertime is great because everyone is on the beaches, jetties and piers catching the spawning Snook. There are still plenty of smaller, resident Snook that hang out inshore year-round and offer anglers a great opportunity to catch them in peace! The hot temperatures don’t really slow down the mangroves like it does the Snook, so look for them to be very active right now and throughout the remainder of summer. They will be hiding around deep bridges with strong current and the biggest ones tend to bite at night. Live or frozen shrimp and pilchards are great bait to get tight on some Mangrove Snapper in the next few weeks.

Palm Beach Offshore Fishing Report

The Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) are still spread all over, with this week’s fishing reports ranging from depths of 300’-1500’. The key to the Dolphin fishing for the past few weeks has been locating productive water before dropping back the spread. Look for things like current breaks, defined weed lines and floating debris before you start fishing. A very good number of Wahoo were reported this week and they should stick around for the better part of this week as well. The Kingfish are still biting well up and down the ledge in 120’ along with a ton of Bonita and Sharks mixed in the same area in West Palm Beachm, Jupiter and Boynton Beach. Bottom fishing is hot right now with the drift boats reporting great hauls of Yellowtail and Mutton Snapper this week.

Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

Lots of seaweed continues to challenge surf and pier anglers, but on the days where it isn’t too bad to fish, guys have been reporting that fishing is extremely good. Catch and release Snook fishing has been great on the days you can swim a lure in the surf. The best bites have been reported from Juno Pier, Jupiter Inlet and Palm Beach Inlet. Swimbaits and Flair Hawk Jigs are the best baits to use at night while large live baits like Croaker and Sand Perch are sure to get thumped during the day. It has also been reported that the first few schools of mullet were spotted to the north of Melbourne. This is a great sign for our mullet run and it should not be longer than another month before the mullet show up and inshore, surf and pier fishing REALLY pops off!

What is biting right now? The Snook were biting this week, big ones too! Guys fishing on the Juno Pier reported a bunch of quality Snook being pulled over the rails including a few over 40”. Sand Perch and Croakers are the best bait during the day, with swimbaits working well for the first hour in the morning. Some nice schools of Jacks have been moving around the pier as well this week and guys are having a blast catching them on light tackle. Croakers and Sand Perch are biting well in the first trough, right past the breakers on small pieces of frozen shrimp.

What's Biting Offshore West Palm Beach

The Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) bite continues to be productive but challenging to find them because they are so scattered throughout a wide depth range. According to the latest fishing reports, they were reported anywhere between 500-1500’ with mostly smaller sized fish being reported. Trolling remains your best bet of encountering a school because you can cover more water and fish with a variety of different offerings. A few Blackfin Tuna were reported this week on the troll in 300’. Kingfish action and some decent Wahoo action has been taking place this week. They are scattered up, down and around the 120’ ledge with a few caught deeper. Look for the Wahoo to be right around this zone too early in the morning and in the evening as well. If you are targeting Wahoo while the sun is high up in the sky, pushing out a little deeper to 250-350 is a good idea.

Fishing Report for Palm Beach Pier and Surf

The inlets and beaches have been seeing very good Snook fishing for much of this week too. Look for the best action in the inlets to be at night during the outgoing tide. The beaches are best right now first thing in the morning and late in the afternoon, but high tide throughout the daytime is a good choice too. Swimbaits and Flair Hawks are the go-to right now for artificial baits. The beach around the Juno Pier is a great place to start searching as the fish have been podded up pretty good right past the breaking waves over there. Especially at night right now.

Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

The Juno Pier is the place to be for catching Snook this week. There has been a lot of sea weed along the surf so getting a little further out on the pier may be the only way to go right now. The Snook have been stacking up under the pier pretty thick. They have also been stacking up in Jupiter and Palm Beach Inlets. Flair Hawk Jigs, swimbaits and big live baits are the way to get em right now. The smaller resident Snook have been biting well along the bridges at night on smaller presentations. The Jupiter Spillway opened up for a few days this week and anglers reported hot action over there! Some Mangrove Snapper moving around inshore but no big hauls just yet.

Palm Beach Offshore Fishing Report

Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) fishing reports slowed down a bit this week, and the pattern of the Dolphin being scattered throughout a huge range of depths remains the same. This week, fishing reports were coming in from 100-1200’ of water. With that, trolling is still your best bet at finding the schools. Make sure you are locating signs of life and fishy water before dropping the spread back. All the Dolphin being caught recently have been on some type of structure, even if it’s just a lot of flying fish in the area but defined weed lines and floating debris are always best. There is a lot of action right now around the 120’ ledge from the Juno Pier to Jupiter Inlet. Seems like fishing around the ledge is almost a sure bet of bending the rods this week. Tons of Bonita and Sharks in there which means that predatory fish will not be far behind in West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach. Reports of Kingfish, Dolphin, Blackfin Tuna, Bonita and some Wahoo all came from boats fishing around the ledge this week. Look for the best chances of a Wahoo bite to come from 100-200’ of water early and late in the day, during low light conditions and then push out a little deeper to 250-350’ once the sun is high in the sky. Bottom fishing has been hot too, with good size and numbers of Yellowtail and Mutton Snapper mostly being caught on Sardines.

Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

The sea weed along the beach has made fishing a bit tough this week, but on the days you can get through it. What is biting right now? the Snook fishing has been pretty good. The Snook have been cruising up and down the beach. Look for low light conditions and high tide in the afternoon to be your best shot of hooking up. If you are fishing the beach during the day, look for the Snook to be hanging out right in the first trough, closest to the beach. These fish offer a great opportunity for sight fishing which is a ton of fun. Throw a live Croaker, Sand Perch, Pilchard or even a natural colored swimbait to catch them.

Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

Catch and release Snook fishing is what’s going down right now and will continue to be the main game for the remainder of summer. The Juno Pier and Jupiter Inlet have both been seeing quality Snook bites just about daily. The best bait for a big Snook right now is going to be a live Croaker. The Croakers feed on the Snook eggs so the Snook just can not resist eating it, just because they want the Croaker removed from their zone. At night, the vibrations from a Flair Hawk Jig and big swimbaits have been driving the spawners nuts. The Croakers and Sand Perch have been biting on shrimp in the surf and some schools of Tarpon have been cruising up and down the beaches too.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report

This summertime heat has the inshore fishing on the slower side this week, but on a good note, the Snook fishing is still on fire. With the heat being a bit of an issue, fishing the bridges at night will be your best option to pop a few of the Snook this week. Flair Hawk Jigs, big swimbaits and as always, live baits will produce you some quality Snook thumps. Mangrove Snapper reports have been coming in from the bridges again this week, with the action taking place mostly at night right now.

What is being caught off Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach right now? The Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) fishing reports we saw this week were once again, inconsistent, but a small pattern noticed is that the fish were all out deeper than 500’ of water. Trolling is still your best bet for the Dolphin because they are so spread out and you will need to cover some water to find a school. The Blackfin Tuna have been biting from 200-300’ of water. Trolling small feathers, skirted lures and daisy chains are what the Blackfin Tuna are looking for way back in your spread. 150-300’ is holding some Wahoo. Get out there and high-speed troll (15-20kts) with skirted wahoo lures behind a shock leader and cigar weight to get yourself one. If bycatch is not bothering you, throw a deep diving lure like a Rapala or Nomad or even a big skirted split tail mullet in the spread while trolling closer inshore and that gives you a good shot at a nice Wahoo as well.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

Some incredible Snook fishing taking place right now along the beaches as the big spawners continue showing up, hungry. Large live baits like Croakers and Sand Perch are the best bait right now to hook into some giants, while smaller baits caught in the surf and around the pier, or even 4-8” swimbaits will get you a better number of bites. In the morning and evening, look for them to be more active and willing to hit artificial. The Croakers and Sand Perch are hitting on small pieces of frozen shrimp in the first beach trough, right past the breakers. A good amount of Spanish Mackerel have been reported around the pier this week along with a few nice Kingfish. Expect early morning and late evening to be the best if not the only time you will see these fish biting right now.

What's Biting Inshore in Palm Beach

The bridges and spillways are the best shot for inshore catch and release Snook fishing right now, as they are both holding a good number of fish. The bridges are producing best during outgoing tide at night right now and the fish have been stacking up thick in the spillways when they are open. More Jack reports coming from early in the morning. They are cruising along sea walls right now looking to attack an easy meal. A live mullet, surface jig or noisy topwater plug is all you need to draw some vicious strikes from these Jacks!

Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) fishing reports remain spread out this week, but we did see a whole bunch of really nice fishing reports for them this week. Most of the reported Dolphin were in 500’+ of water, and the guys reporting phenomenal days were all fishing 1000’+ of water. Trolling will be your best shot of coving some water and finding some feeding Dolphin right now. The Blackfin Tuna are still biting well in 200-300’ of water on the troll. Blackfin tend to like small feathers in dark colors so black/purple colored little feathers or skirted lures sent way back in the spread is a great way to put some tuna fish in the box this week! Kingfish were biting around the 120’ ledge once again. Drifting around while using sardines (live or dead) on a Kingfish rig is a great bet for landing some Kingfish this week. They have been biting best during low light conditions both in the morning and evening. Snapper fishing has been good this week in 60-90’ off Jupiter.

Fishing Report for Palm Beach Pier and Surf

More and more big spawning Snook have been showing, and the bite is hot! The Juno Beach Fishing Pier, Palm Beach Inlet, Boynton Beach and Jupiter inlet are all hot spots right now. Large live baits are the best bait to hook up with a big Snook right now. Croakers and Sand Perch caught in the surf are by far the best baits to use during the day. At night, switch over to artificial jigs like Flair Hawks and big swimbaits and sweep them slowly along the bottom. You want the jig to be hovering over the bottom at the same speed as the current. Snook fishing has also been good along the beach during high tide. Look for the Snook to be cruising in the first beach trough and sight fish them with a small swimbait or a live bait.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report

Catch and release Snook fishing around the bridges and in the Inlets at night has been good. With the water being so dirty, the fishing has been productive on either tide this week. As usual, Flair Hawk jigs and bigger swimbaits have been producing nice Snook on the bridges. Some big schools of angry Jacks have been spotted cruising around the ICW and Mangrove Snapper fishing is in full swing around the bridges and in the inlets right now.

It has certainly been a challenge to find the Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) this week, but those who did send us fishing reports, got into them pretty well. The key is finding the right depth zone right now. This week, reports came in from anywhere between 200-1300’ of water. Trolling is your best shot at encountering some Dolphin this week to cover some water and find the right zone because it has been changing day by day. Blackfin Tuna have been biting on the troll in 200-300’ of water. Target the Blackfin Tuna early in the morning and late in the afternoon as they have been biting best in low light conditions. Around the 120’ ledge and inside of that has been producing a good number of Kingfish. Snapper fishing remains good from 60-90’ and the best bites are coming on either live or dead sardines along the bottom. Reports of both BIG Yellowtail and BIG Muttons coming over the rails recently.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

What is biting right now? Good Spanish Mackerel action continued at the pier this week with a number of fish being reported daily. Kingfish are still being caught over there as well on x-raps and live baits on the trolley rig. Kingfish bites have been coming either first thing in the morning or later in the afternoon. The Snook have really made a good showing around the Pier this week, but the big spawning females still do not seem entirely ready to play just yet. Croakers and Whiting are both biting well right in the surf on small pieces of shrimp. Not only do these little guys taste delicious, they are the best summertime Snook bait you can get your hands on! Some Tarpon are still being reported moving north along the beach, but it has been a real challenge fooling one of them recently. They are definitely on the move.

Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

Snook fishing has now returned to catch and release only until September 1st and it seems the bite has picked back up this week. Bridge fishing at night during the outgoing tide has been the best window for catching some Snook lately. Big swimbaits and Flair Hawk Jigs swept slowly along the bottom are a great option for connecting with some larger Snook while a smaller shrimp presentation is a sure bet for some action right now. Some big schools of Jacks have been cruising around the Intracoastal Waterway behind Palm Beach and are willing to strike a fast-moving surface jig, topwater lure or a live mullet right now. Look for them to be feeding along sea walls during low light conditions. Inshore snapper fishing has picked up nicely around the bridges, especially at night.

Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) fishing reports continue to be all over the place. Reports from this week said the Dolphin were scattered, they were caught anywhere between 250-1500’ of water. Trolling in open water has produced a few of the Dolphin, make sure you are looking for signs of life like current rips, temperature breaks, bait balls and floating debris while searching for the Dolphin. Some guys reported that run and gun was the best was to catch them. Search for floating debris and be ready with live baits, squid or baby orca jigs to bring them up. Blackfin Tuna were prevalent this week and were caught trolling small feathers and daisy chains in 200-300’ of water. There has been a good Kingfish bite from Juno to Jupiter in 200-300’ while drifting with live or dead sardines on a Kingfish rig. Bottom fishing has been a bit spotty this week, in West Palm Beach and Boynyon Beach but solid reports of Yellowtail and Mutton snapper being pulled in.

Fishing Report for Palm Beach Pier and Surf

The Juno Pier along with its surrounding beaches have finally been seeing some great action this week. The Snook fishing has improved daily this week, with Snook finally biting the live baits a lot better. A fresh chunk of Bonita or Mackerel will not last long on the bottom either right now. The Snook have been moving along the beachfronts in good numbers as well this week. Afternoon high tides offer a great opportunity to sight fish some big Snook. A good amount of Kingfish have been coming over the rail at the Pier as well this week. If a Kingfish is what you’re after, make sure to get there first thing in the morning when the pier opens. Fish with either a live bait on a trolley rig or a swimming plug off the end of the pier for the best luck with Kingfish. Bonita and Jacks have also been making some quality appearances at the pier for anglers looking to really get their drags screaming. A nice number of Tarpon have been getting spotted early in the morning on the beaches and at the pier this week too. A paddle tail swimbait presented right in their noses is a great way to get a big Tarpon dancing off the pier this week.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report

Snook fishing has been the best fishing inshore lately. The season closes tomorrow (June 1) so from here on out, Snook fishing will be 100% catch and release, which is still a ton of fun. The snook have been actively feeding at night on the bridges and in dock lights, especially during the first part of the outgoing tide. Look for the shrimp to be feeding mostly on smaller baits right now, but a large presentation is tough to swing by a big one without going unnoticed. Inshore Snapper fishing is getting better and better with little live baits like pilchards doing some damage.

Palm Beach Offshore Fishing Report

Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) fishing reports seemed to slow down this week, but a few quality fish still being reported. The fish were caught trolling and reports are saying various depths, anywhere between 300-1500’ of water has been the range of the Dolphin this week. Troll a variety of different baits and different sized lures behind the boat in order to cover some water and locate the hungry Dolphin. A variety of species have been reported all from the same depth range, which has caused the offshore fishing to be very productive this week. Kingfish, Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, Cobia, Bonita and a few others have all been coming from around 120-250’. The deep side of the 120’ ledge is a great place to start searching for any and all of these species this week. Snapper fishing has been good in 60-90’ of water with dead or live sardines, threadfins and squid currently being prime choices for bottom bait.

Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

What is being caught in Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach? Surprisingly, there are still a pretty good number of Pompano being caught around the Juno Pier and beach. It is pretty late for them by tradition, but a few keepers in the morning are keeping the surf guys busy. The Pompano on the pier are being caught on Goofy Jigs while sand fleas, clams and FishBites work well on the beach. Snook are now being reported from the pier and beaches as well, but no real hot action yet to speak of. Low light conditions and live baits on bottom have been the key for catching Snook at Juno Pier right now. The Snook have also been hanging around the beach trough as well. Look for sight fishing opportunities in the late afternoon along the surf to get even better in coming weeks. High tide will give you the best chances of crossing paths with some big Snook. Most of the Snook reports this week have come from Jupiter Inlet and a number coming in from Palm Beach Inlet as well. They are really starting to stack up in the inlet in preparation for their summer spawn. Live croakers are the best bait right now for catching Snook in the inlets because they are known to feast on Snook eggs. Putting a live Croaker right in the face of a spawning Snook is a great way to get thumped in the Inlets and on the Pier alike.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

It is the last few days to put a slot Snook in the cooler so get out there while you still can! Soon, Snook fishing will return to catch and release only, which is still tons of fun. The Snook fishing has not been anything to write home about recently, but some have been reported both from the bridges and from the Inlets this week. They are definitely getting ready to spawn now. Flair Hawk Jigs and big swimbaits are still the top producers for bridge Snook right now. Live baits like sardines, pilchards, croakers and pinfish are all great choices for bait when Snook fishing in the inlets right now. Flair Hawks, Swimbaits and Vudu Shrimp have been working if you are throwing artificial around the inlet. Better reports have come in this week from both Jupiter and Palm Beach inlets for Snook. This time of year is notoriously slow for inshore fishing so its nice to see a few good sized Snook chewing inshore. Best times of the day to target them right now is going to be at night for the outgoing time, and for the sunrise and sunset regardless of what the tide may be doing during those times.

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach

The Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) fishing reports this week have really been good in West Palm Beach, Jupiter and Boynton Beach. They have been scattered about so no real depth zone this week but starting around the 120’ ledge and working out deeper is a good option for running into some Dolphin. Trolling is the best way to get tight right now because you can cover a lot of water and run a variety of different lures/baits. This way you are accomplishing two things at once, finding the fish and figuring out what they want to eat. Once you find a school, troll around the same area while leaving one Dolphin in the water behind the boat. This will keep them coming! The Kingfish action has slowed just a bit this week, with most of the fish being caught now coming from down south around Boynton Beach. There are still a good number of Kings scattered up and down the 120’ ledge and a decent number of Blackfin Tuna have been reported around the ledge this week as well. The Bonita have been coming in too, but not still in big numbers yet. Wahoo fishing seemed to slow down a bit this week, but a few were reported from right around the 120’ ledge in the past couple days.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

The thick matts of seaweed in the surf has made it difficult for fishing this week, but some decent reports still made their way in. What is biting right now? Snook have been showing up on the beaches this week little by little and they have been biting here and there at the Juno Pier, but little consistency as of lately. The fish are in the process of transitioning into their summer spawning habits and they are a bit hesitant to feed. A lot of small Pompano in the surf right now, but a handful of keepers have been reported this week, which is keeping a lot of the surf and pier guys happy. The Whiting and Croakers have been biting fresh and frozen shrimp right past the waves in close. A few schools of big Jacks were seen around the pier this week as well as a few more schools of tarpon spotted cruising on the beaches heading north. Low light conditions remain the best time for fishing right now.

Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

Snook fishing is still very good inshore from the latest fishing reports, and the season is winding down to an end so make sure you get out there for those last few slots! The bridges closer to the inlet at night have been producing the best action. Look for the fish to be chewing on the outgoing tide. Flair Hawks and big swimbaits should do this trick this week on the slots. Big Jacks have been cruising around the Loxahatchee River and the ICW behind West Palm. Look for them to be cruising the sea walls early in the morning and late in the day. A shiny casting jig or loud topwater plug will draw some aggressive strikes from these Jacks. Some better reports of Mangrove Snapper coming from inshore right now too.

Palm Beach Offshore Fishing Report

The Kingfish bite is the go-to for guys fishing offshore right now. They are being reported anywhere from Palm Beach Inlet to Jupiter Inlet, mainly in 100-200’ of water right now with the 120’ ledge being a great place to start searching. Drifting with live baits or dead sardines has been the best way to connect with a Kingfish this week, but trolling has produced too. Right in that same depth range, we have been seeing good reports of Blackfin Tuna, a bunch of Wahoos and a few Cobia. Nice mixed bag to catch out there right now in Boynton Beach. The Bonita have started pushing in this week too, which is a good sign because lots of predatory fish feed on them and should be following not too far behind.

Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

The Juno Beach Pier action has been steadily getting better and better. The Snook bite has been on and off all week, with the fish changing up what they want to eat between live baits and dead sardines, but the bite is sure to shape up in coming weeks. A lot of Spanish Mackerel and some Kingfish have been coming over the rails this week. Popping corks above silver spoons or crappie jigs have been working well on the Spanish Mackerel while the Kingfish are being caught on a trolley rig with live baits. Jupiter Inlet saw some good Snook fishing this week on live croakers. Seems like they are already pretty stacked over there in the inlet. A few schools of big Tarpon were spotted this week headed north along the beach and they should continue this behavior for the next few weeks. Look for them to be feeding in the beach trough early in the morning.

A few Cobia being caught right in that same zone too. A few daytime Swordfish reports have been coming in this week as well, bites have been pretty consistent lately!

A good Pompano bite was had at the Juno Pier this week and on the surrounding beaches. We have been seeing less and less of them recently so reports of nice Pompano are definitely welcomed this time of year! The Snook fishing at the pier and on the beaches is getting better as well. Dead sardines are still the bait of choice for the Snook, but it seems like a few more big fish are being caught on live baits daily. Big Jacks have been spotted cruising through the pier and up and down the beaches which is exciting for guys looking for a big fight from the beach. Jump Spanish Mackerel have been all over the Pier and on the beaches too and the Croaker and Whiting are biting fresh or frozen shrimp right past the waves in the surf.

What's Biting Inshore in Palm Beach

Look for the Snook to be making their ways towards the local inlets right now in preparation for their summertime spawn. Bridges that are closest to the inlets are the best places to start your hunt this time of year. With access being so limited currently, Snook reports have been few and far between, but if you can manage to find a spot and get out there, the Snook will be biting! They are keyed in on larger sized baitfish right now, so a Flair Hawk Jig or big Swimbait are both great options to get tight. With all the bait around inshore, expect some nice sized Jacks and Tarpon to be feeding around the inshore waters as well this week.

Palm Beach Offshore Fishing Report

Great springtime fishing offshore taking place right now! The Sailfish bite is still surprisingly good for being this late in the season and there are a good amount of big bull Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) around spread out through a range of different depths. The Blackfin Tuna bite has been very good recently as well. Small feathers have been producing the most Blackfin Tuna, but the Yo-Zuri High Speed Vibe lure in the darker colors have been hooking up with some of the bigger ones. Kingfish action has been hot around the 120’ ledge and out to 150’ of water Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach. There have been numerous Cobia reported from this same depth zone this week as well.

Snook fishing has been good inshore this week, they have really started gearing up to head over to the inlets to spawn now. Obviously with the pandemic, access is extremely limited right now, but if you can find a spot to fish, the Snook have been CHEWING! Smaller shrimp imitations have been producing the most bites, but a Flair Hawk jig or swimbait swept along the bottom during the outgoing tide is sure to get picked up by a bigger one. Sand perch reports are still coming in steadily from the Intracoastal Waterway on small pieces of shrimp and a few more Mangrove Snapper reports trickled in this week.

What is being caught right now in Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach? The Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) were all over the place this week with little consistency to follow. It seems like one day they would be in 500’ and the next they could be over 1000.’ They key to finding the Dolphin right now is covering water and finding the productive water. Look for signs of life like weed lines with bait, slicks, rip lines and bait on the surface to find the Dolphin. There are still some Sailfish hanging around and they are being caught on kites in 150-300’ of water right now. The Blackfin Tuna were caught mostly trolling in 150-300’ of water this week while the Kingfish bit well from 120-150’ along with some Cobia in the same depth range. Jupiter Inlet to Juno Pier seems to be the zone to fish right now. Snapper reports were good this week, but lots of frustrated bottom fishermen out there right now with the abundance of sharks in close.

The Juno Pier along with basically all beach access still remains closed, so fishing reports have been extremely scarce. There should be a good number of Pompano in the surf and we did have some reports of Tarpon and Jacks spotted cruising around the surf this week.

Mixed in the same depth range as the Sailfish, some nice sized Blackfin Tuna and Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) are being caught. Trolling right now is the best shot for the Dolphin, as they’re travelling in small packs, and will also give you a great shot at some of the Blackfin Tuna. All three species are also eating the live baits under kites which are being used for Sailfish. Snapper fishing was good this week inside with a bunch of Mutton and Yellowtail Snapper being reported.

A good push of “late” Sailfish fishing reports have been coming through this week with many boats getting in on the quality action and some releasing nearly a dozen Sailfish a day.

Not too many Kingfish to speak of around the ledge this week, but some Wahoo were caught once again right there and a few Cobia have been reported from that same zone as well.

Pompano fishing has been good this week, but they are reportedly moving very quickly so there is no single hot spot to try. Anywhere from Singer Island to the Hobe Sound has produced Pompano this week. Best bait for the Pompano sand fleas, clams, fish bites and Goofy Jigs. Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish are still around the Juno Pier and surrounding beaches. Popping corks with a small spoon is a great option to catch these guys right now because they were reported to be feeding on glass minnows. Croakers are still biting at the Pier and on the beach this week on frozen shrimp. The sharks on the beach seemed to have thinned out this week but there are still a few around so try some fresh chunk baits in the surf rather than casting topwater plugs this week.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report

Recent warming temperatures has the inshore fishing very good right now. Expect the Snook and Jacks to be chewing well. Both species have been feeding on the big, spring mullet that are taking cover near the inshore sea walls and boat docks. The bridges at night have yielded good numbers of Snook this week, but they are mostly feeding on small shrimp, so be sure to scale down your presentation to get bit. Fishing reports of Tarpon have been coming in from up in the Loxahatchee River all week. Most of them are juveniles that are a ton of fun on light tackle. Some Pompano were reported this week and the Sheepshead are still biting well around the bridges.

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach

Sailfish action has slowed down quite a bit this week, but a bunch of Blackfin Tuna pushed in and were caught on live baits by the guys Sailfishing in 150-200’ of water, primarily from Boyton Inlet to West Palm Beach to Jupiter Inlet. Plenty of Kingfish around this week ranging from 120-200’ caught drifting with dead sardines and on live baits while Sailfishing as well. There were some big Wahoo around this weekend as well, an 85 pounder was caught in the Sailfish Challenge Tournament on Sunday! There have been a lot of Cobia still hanging around the ledge so make sure to always have a jig or live bait ready for them!

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

Surf and Pier bites seemed to really pick up this week. Earlier in the week, there was a good Pompano bite at the Juno Pier. Finally, some nicer conditions brought some nice fish around the beach and pier. A big push of Jacks including some giants have been coming through, Pompano, Spanish Mackerel, small Kingfish and a couple Bluefish were all reported to be producing good action this week at the pier. Croakers have been biting on frozen shrimp very well in the surf, they are all over! The sharks are really thick right now. If you do not want them to steal your catch, don’t forget to bring your fish in as quickly as possible because you know they are just waiting for it! With the sharks being around in large numbers right now, walking the beach with a big topwater lure is a great option for some visible surface strikes. At night, a fresh chunk of cut bait is sure to get picked up quick.

Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

This week kicked off a bit of spring mullet run action. What is biting during the srping mullet run in Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach? Generally, spring mullet are slightly more challenging than in the fall, but they tend to be bigger mullet being fed on by bigger fish. Snook fishing has been best in the Loxahatchee River recently, using live mullet along boat docks and sea walls. The Snook will be hiding in spots they can ambush baitfish and they tend to hang out near deep water, but on the shallow side this time of year. The local bridges have been seeing some quality snook action at night, especially around the outgoing tide. This bite will only get better as temperatures warm back up, but right now, with all the big mullet around, is a great opportunity to throw some of your biggest swimbaits looking for those big over slots. Some big Jacks cruising around inshore right now too, look for them visibly feeding on the surface and be ready with a noisy topwater plug!

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach

Some good Sailfish action persisting offshore in 150-200’ of water anywhere from Juno Pier to Jupiter Inlet. The Big northeast winds over the weekend caused the Sailfish to go off, with multiple boats releasing double digit numbers of Sailfish in a day. Some reports of Dolphin have been coming in but not many big ones or big numbers were reported this week. The Kingfish and a few Wahoo were biting this week in 120’ around the ledge. No Snapper reports from the weekend due to weather but next weekend is looking much better to put some meat in the cooler.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

Been a rough week for surf and pier fishermen due to the BIG east winds, so not too many reports came in to speak of this week. Some Pompano were reported north of Jupiter Inlet, but no considerable numbers or size up there this week. Some Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel and a few Jacks have been at the Juno Pier, but it has definitely been difficult. Best bet right now for putting together a catch of Spanish Mackerel is going to be Peck Lake once again. The Blacktip and Spinner sharks are still around the beaches in good numbers right now, but the conditions have made it pretty much unfishable for them all week, and right through the weekend as well. Look for them to be chewing once again when the big surf and heavy easterly winds lay off.

Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

Snook fishing has been great this week due to the noticeably warmer weather we’ve had. The fishing reports coming in say Snook have been stacked under the bridges and around the dock lights at night. During the day, they can be found in places like boat docks, seawalls and mangroves. Live and artificial shrimp are still the top choice for Snook anglers right now, but with the showing of some spring mullet, bigger baits like swimbaits and flair hawk jigs will produce some bigger bites at night. Still a bunch of Sheepshead around and a few strong Snapper reports came in this week, which is fairly uncommon for this time of year.

What's Biting Offshore West Palm Beach

Guys have really had to pick their days recently with the weather swings we have been experiencing. The bite offshore really picked up this week for a variety of species. This was the best week we have had yet for Sailfishing off Palm Beach and Jupiter with many boats releasing double digit numbers. The Blackfin tuna have been around the same zone as the Sailfish, and eating baits presented the same way too. 150-200’ of water using live goggle eyes or blue runners underneath a kite is your best bet for the Sailfish, Blackfin Tuna and Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) right now. Not many fishing reports coming in from deeper than 200’ this week, because the fish are all inside! Kingfish bite was a little better this week with a few more being caught along the ledge in Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach. Good Snapper fishing and multiple Cobia reports have been coming from 60-90’ from Juno Pier to Jupiter Inlet.

Fishing Report for Palm Beach Pier and Surf

The Juno Pier seems to be the place to be locally right now. Reports of the Pompano action increasing once again and more Bluefish showing up around the Pier as well. A good number of Spanish Mackerel around the Pier right now too. The talk of the town on the beach right now though is undoubtedly the sharks. A ton of Blacktip and Spinner sharks around the surf right now. Walking the beach with a big, noisy topwater plug in the morning and evening is an awesome opportunity for an exciting visual strike, while casting a fresh chunk bait into the surf at night as a sure bet for a quick bite right now!

Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

Now that Snook season is open, we have had a lot more fishing reports than usual coming in. Some are reporting the bite is slow and others reporting outstanding action. The Snook are tough to catch right now so really dialing in your technique is key to getting a few more bites. This cool weather slows the snook down so make sure you are sweeping your lures especially slow along the bottom. Shrimp-like lures have been the best producers so far for the slot fish, and some larger ones are being caught on Flair Hawk jigs and 5” swimbaits. Sheepshead and Black Drum fishing is still productive around the bridges and a few nice Trout and some Redfish were reported to be moving around the flats in MacArthur State Park.

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach

What is biting right now in Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boyton Beach? The Sailfish bite is still pretty good, picking up right about where we left off last week. Still no big concentrations of fish in the local area, but they are scattered all throughout. Many of the boats that got out this week had multiple Sailfish releases. Some nice Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) were caught trolling around 200-300’ of water. Multiple reports saying that the Dolphin were not holding on structure but cruising open water in small packs instead. Trolling a spread of different lures and baits is a good bet to putting some Dolphin in the boat this week. The Kingfish were caught along the edge again this week by guys drifting sardines in 90-130’ of water. Inside, in 70-90’, boats have been reporting mix bags of Snapper including Yellowtail, Mutton and Mangroves just about every day. There have been a ton of sharks around inshore, with some Cobia cruising not far behind so have a live bait or flair hawk jig ready at all times!

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

Pompano fishing finally improved a bit this week, especially south of Jupiter Inlet, where the fishing has been tough for the past few weeks. Sand Fleas, Clams and Fish Bites have been the go to on the beach and Goofy Jigs on the pier. The sharks have filled in nicely on the beach, but we still have a few more weeks before the full-on shark migration really happens. It is still a little early for the jumbo Spanish Mackerel to be thick over at Peck Lake, but the action has been hot on the smaller guys. A good number of Jumbos have already began filling in so really start looking for those jumbos soon.

What's Biting Inshore in Palm Beach

With Snook season now open, many anglers will be out and about searching for their slots. Deep bridges with strong current are good places to start your hunt. During the day, the Snook can be found sunning themselves on shallow mudflats that keep them warm. The fish are still is keyed in and feeding on shrimp, so use a live shrimp or an artificial shrimp lure to get hooked up. The Sheepshead have been biting extremely well this week inshore with some quality fish being caught from both boat and shore.

Palm Beach Offshore Fishing Report

Sailfish action slowed as the week progressed. Earlier in the week, lots of Sails were being reported but as the week progressed, we noticed less and less. Locating bait in 150-300’ of water has been essential to locating the Sailfish. Keep an eye out for signs of life like flying fish on the surface, or balls of bait on the sonar. The Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) along with some nice bulls are still mixed right in with the Sailfish. A good amount of Cobia have been reported this week from depths ranging anywhere from 90-130’ of water. The Kingfish bite is still spotty but seems like it turned back on a little bit this week inside of the ledge around 100’. Snapper fishing continued to produce this week in around 90-130’ of water mainly off Jupiter.

Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

At this point, it is safe to say that surf fishing has been a little off this year, but things finally started to shape up over this past week. Jacks, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish and Sharks have all been caught up and down the beach and at the Juno Pier this week. Walk the beach with a big surface plug to attract the attention of some big Jacks or the sharks. The Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel really filled in this week around Juno Beach, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beachand the sharks followed close behind. Pompano action also increased quite a bit this week. Good reports of Pompano came from both north and south of Jupiter Inlet just about every day on sand fleas, clam and FishBites.

What's Biting Inshore in Palm Beach

Just a few more days of catch and release Snook fishing before it’s go-time! Snook fishing was good this week around the bridges, dock lights and light lines at night on live or artificial shrimp. The Sheepshead and Black Drum action has been very good on the bridges with shrimp or fiddler crabs. The only talk of Pompano right now seems to be a decent bite coming from the Loxahatchee River.

What's Biting Offshore West Palm Beach

The Sailfish bite was much steadier this week as the weather calmed down and we saw some good north winds. West Palm Beach to Jupiter is where the kite bite has been for the Sails, fishing in 250-225’ of water. Live goggle eyes or blue runners fished below a kite has been the hot ticket recently for getting in on the Sailfish bite. A good number of Dolphin are still being reported to be mixed right in with the sailfish along with a few Cobia and Wahoo reports right from that same depth zone. The Kingfish action has been slowly dying out along the 120’ ledge, but guys trying are still seeing a few good fish. As predicted, Snapper fishing picked right back up this week with many of the drift boats reporting nice hauls of Snapper on the bottom with some Cobia and a few Kingfish in the mix too.

Fishing Report for Palm Beach Pier and Surf

Conditions were finally better for surf fishing in Boynton Beach this week! We had a few days with good north winds that pushed a good number of Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish and Pompano into our local surf. The water cleaned up nicely as the week progressed bringing better and better fishing. Blacktip sharks should really start pouring in thick soon, but we will only see them in big numbers if the smaller fish fill in first, which has not seemed to be the case until the past few days.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report

Snook Season will be opening back up on 2/1, so more and more Snook reports have been making their way in as guys begin scouting the area for slot fish before opening day. Snook fishing right now remains catch and release only. Look for them to be holding underneath boat docks, mangroves, sea walls and mudflats that are near deep water right now on the outgoing tide. Shrimp imitations or live shrimp have been working best on the Snook.

Palm Beach Offshore Fishing Report

This week’s weather caused an array of mixed fishing reports to come in. What is biting right now in Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach? Good reports came in from the few days it was fishable out there. The reports this week were fair, with things seeming a little slower than they have been. Sailfish have been biting around 150-225’ but not as many as we would expect for this time of year. The North wind that fires up the Sails just has not been coming through enough for them yet this year. Dolphin are still being caught in the same depth range as the Sailfish, with a few nice sized bulls in the mix. The Kingfish seemed to have scattered up and down the 120’ line as action was a bit more spotty than usual for them this week. However, a few more Wahoo were caught by some of the guys trolling along the ledge in the past few days.

Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

This week has been incredibly slow for surf and pier anglers. Lots of talk right now about this big front coming through that could possibly spark some better action around the surf zone. With that, Pompano and Spanish Mackerel reports from the Juno Pier and surrounding beaches have been very sparce lately. Some fish being caught but not all that many, and few keepers. Very few Bluefish around right now too, we are still waiting for them to really push in thick. The sharks have not really been around the surf either due to the lack of fish out there. If a good push of Pompano, Spanish Mackerel and/or Bluefish come into the surf, plan on the sharks returning in good numbers as well.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report

Snook fishing reports continued this week inshore, especially around the bridges at night and the ICW when the sun is up. Sheepshead, Black Drum and even a few Redfish are in their full swing wintertime habits, taking cover and feeding around bridge pilings, boat docks and sea walls. Reports have started coming in from the backside of John D. McArthur State Park this week with anglers reporting catches of some nice snook and some better trout along with some big Jacks on the surface back there!

What's Biting Offshore West Palm Beach

The Sailfish bite has been on for the boats making it out of Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach this week, which was not too many. The rough seas kept most guys home this week, but guys who got out there found them in 150-250’ of water anywhere from Juno Pier to Jupiter inlet. Live goggle eyes under the kite has been the best technique to catch the Sails right now. The Dolphin are still mixed right in with the Sailfish and there have been some really nice ones in the mix so don’t hesitate to drop the spread back and do some trolling around that zone. A bunch of Kingfish are still being caught along the 120’ ledge and a few nice Wahoo were reported right from that same area this week. Less bottom fishing reports than usual this week with not much other than rough seas to blame. Look for the Snapper reports to start flowing again once the weather calms.

Fishing Report for Palm Beach Pier and Surf

Big east winds blowing right in your face made it difficult for surf anglers along the beaches and piers this week. Some better Pompano action was had at the Juno Pier this week, but the main draw over there is still the Spanish Mackerel.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

Inshore fishing was good this week for catch and release Snook fishing. The local bridges, dock lights and marinas around Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach at night have all been a really good bet for catching Snook right now, especially at night. The Snook have been positioning themselves in shadow lines at night, so they can ambush the shrimp flowing the lights through the current. Use a live or artificial shrimp and let it flow naturally through the light and right into the shadows where the Snook are waiting for an easy meal. Sheepshead and some Black Drum have been around and can be caught on sand fleas, fiddler crabs, shrimp and FishBites. Expect more and more of these fish to pile in here in upcoming weeks. Mixed in with the Sheepshead and Black Drum have been some Redfish showing up as well. There has been a nice mixed bag of species to catch Inshore right now. Enjoy!

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach

The Sailfishing really picked up this week. What is being caught right now? Many boats fishing report said they are releasing multiple Sailfish around 150-200’ of water anywhere from Jupiter Inlet to Palm Beach Inlet. Some bull Dolphin have been getting caught mixed right in with the Sails for the past few weeks and they are still hanging right around that Sailfish zone and a little deeper. The Kingfish action is still good up and down the 120’ ledge. They are being caught in good numbers right now, with a few nice ones in the mix. Bottom fishing picked back up this week as well. The Snapper were biting in 90-100’ of water from Jupiter Inlet to Juno Pier on sardines.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

The talk of the surf right now has been Spanish Mackerel. They really started going off up in Peck Lake this week. There has also been a good amount of them around the Juno Pier. Use crappie jigs, little x-raps, spoons or gotcha jigs to catch them. Pompano fishing has been on the slower side around Juno, with most f the action being found north of Jupiter Inlet and in the Hobe Sound. A ton of sharks have been cruising right in the beach trough which a bunch of surf anglers have been enjoying catching on big surface plugs or a fresh chunk bait on bottom.

What's Biting Inshore in Palm Beach

Inshore fishing reports are productive this week for catch and release Snook fishing around the dock lights and bridge pilings at night. During the day, look for them to be hanging under boat docks and tucked up around sea walls. Shrimp jigs, Vudu Shrimp, Hyperplastic DartSpins, and DOAs are all great options for imitating shrimp right now. The Sheepshead and some Black Drum are still around the bridges and boat docks, biting on crustaceans like live and frozen shrimp or sand fleas. They will even bite FishBites if you are in a rush! Not too many Pompano reports lately, but the ones being reported have all come from the Loxahatchee River.

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach

This week’s weather has stopped a lot of guys from getting offshore this week, but guys that did are reporting nice numbers of Sailfish. Still not the double-digit days we are all waiting for but plenty of boats reporting five or more chances at Sailfish in a day. The next cold front that pushes through here should really get those Sails fired up as we approach the true beginning of Sailfish season off of West Palm Beach, Boynton and Jupiter. What is biting right now? There were some bull Dolphin mixed in with the Sailfish again this week scattered around. The Kingfish bit right in the same zone as the Sailfish and Dolphin and along the 120’ ledge this week as well. When this weather clears up we should start seeing some more good bottom reports again but nothing to speak on the bottom this week largely due to the rough seas.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

Poor Weather conditions and rough surf has made surf fishing fairly difficult this week. Some nice Pompano were caught this week at the Juno Pier by the guys who braved the conditions but no crazy numbers just yet. When this weather calms down, the Pompano action should increase drastically and we will start seeing many more fish. A few Bluefish and a good number of Spanish Mackerel have been around the Pier as well and guys are catching them on small metal jigs/spoons and crappie jigs. The Spanish Mackerel have really been thick over in Peck’s Lake, but the poor water clarity has made them tough to catch all week. Once again, when the conditions clear back up, except this bite to pick right back up!

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report

Catch and release Snook fishing has been good this week around the bridges at night, but now that the season is closed, much less guys are out there trying for them. If keeping fish for dinner isn’t your cup of tea, then right after Snook season is a great time to get out on the bridges and catch some of those Snook without all the crowds around. Pompano fishing has been good up in the Loxahatchee River and around the Hobe Sound. The Sheepshead and a few Black Drum have been hanging out around the bridges and boat docks. Use shrimp or sand fleas to target them.

Palm Beach Offshore Fishing Report

The Weather was not great for guys running offshore this week, so Sailfish reports have been sporadic, but some decent reports still making their way in. The Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) fishing is good right now starting at 300’ and deeper, they have been spread out and the fish coming in have been a larger average size than usual. The fishing report for Kingfish are still biting well in 120’ around the ledge. The bottom fishing was a little off for most of the week as much less Snapper reports than usual came in, but some still being caught around 90’ off Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach.

Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

The heavy east winds this week churned the surf up making it difficult for surf anglers to be productive on the water. When the conditions were fishable, the Spanish Mackerel were biting at the Juno Pier. Metal casting jigs worked best in the wind. The Pompano at the pier have been spotty recently, so it looks like fishing north of Jupiter is going to be your best shot at putting some Pompano in the cooler. The Bluefishing has been hit or miss but expect them to make a better showing next week when it switches back to a north wind.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

The Snook are what is biting right now in Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach, and they really chewed well this week mainly due to the rising temps. Snook season closes today, 12/15, so Snook fishing from here on out will be catch and release only. The Snook have really been keyed in on shrimp so fishing with live or frozen shrimp, or an artificial shrimp lure like the Vudu Shrimp or DOA shrimp around the bridge light lines and dock lights have been producing best. A few good reports coming in from around Munyan Island this week. A variety of different species were reportedly biting like Snook, Trout, Redfish, and Jacks.

What's Biting Offshore West Palm Beach

Sailfishing has been pretty good along the 120’ ledge and out to about 200’. The fishing reports for Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) are that they are still hanging out around 200-300’ of water. They are scattered around that depth range and cruising in smaller schools so trolling is your best bet at finding some. A lot of the Dolphin being caught right now have been really nice sized so get out there! A bunch of Kingfish and some Wahoo were caught this week fishing around the 120’ ledge. Wahoo reports coming from the Bahamas right now are red hot with lots of Wahoo being caught daily right outside of the West End.

Fishing Report for Palm Beach Pier and Surf

The Juno Pier has had a bunch of Mackerel action this week. Both Spanish Mackerel and Kingfish have been reported from the pier this week in decent numbers. Use a little crappie jig, swimming plug or silver jig for the Spanish Mackerel. The Kingfish have been hitting sardines on a trolley rig off the end of the pier. The Pompano were on the slim side this week regarding numbers, but a few days this week produced good numbers. It has been hit or miss on the pier and beaches this week, but action should pick up again soon. Peck’s Lake really lit up this week with the Spanish Mackerel

Sheepshead and Black Drum were the big talk this week as more and more of them are being reported daily. There are some nice Pompano out there too being caught inshore, the next cold front or two should really get them chewing big time. As Snook season winds down, a lot of guys were out there this week trying to get those last few slots in while they still can. Snook fishing is best at night right now around bridges and dock light and they are keyed in on shrimp for bait. Vudu Shrimps are a great artificial option to throw at the Snook right now.

Palm Beach Offshore Fishing Report

The Sailfish bite has been getting better and better, with the best fishing we have seen so far this week. The Sails are being caught on live goggle eyes in 150-200’ of water. Juno Pier to Jupiter inlet has been the hot spot. Just outside the Sailfish, in 200-350’, some big bull Dolphin were caught trolling with ballyhoo. The Kingfish bite is still on at the 120’ ledge in West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach with some really good numbers being reported daily. The Snapper bite was good all week too fishing dead sardines on bottom.

Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

The north wind this weekend pushed a good school of Pompano into the Juno Pier. Guys reported great Pompano action around the pier this weekend. The Spanish Mackerel were thick around the pier this week too, but the best bite has been north of Jupiter Inlet and Peck’s Lake. A few nice Kingfish hit the deck at the Juno Pier this week as well. The Bluefish thinned out a bit this week. Not as many of them around as there have been recently. Usually, this time of year they are all over so don’t be surprised if we get a big push of them very soon.

The Snook were chewing on the bridges this week at night. They are eating shrimp right now so make sure you are fishing either with shrimp, or a lure that the Snook can easily mistake for a shrimp floating with the current. The Flair Hawk Jigs and swimbaits have not been producing as well as they usually do lately. More and more reports of wintertime Sheepshead and some Black Drum showing up inshore this week too. Best to look around boat docks and bridge pilings to find them.

Palm Beach Offshore Fishing Report

There was a decent Sailfish bite off West Palm Beach this weekend and the guys just north of us have been doing very well, so it looks like things will really light up here soon. Sailfish anglers here have been seeing releases every day, but not the big numbers were all waiting for. What else is being caught in Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach? Some nice bull Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) were caught this week in 200-350’ of water, and the Kingfish bite was strong for guys fishing around the 120’ ledge. In around 90’, the bottom fishing has been consistently good too.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

Snook fishing is the main game right now on the inshore scene and is what is being caught lately. They have been keyed in on the shrimp, but larger jigs and swimbaits have been producing more quality bites on the bridges at night. During the day, make sure to scale down your presentation to match the hatch. Vudu shrimp lures are the go-to both during the day and night for the snook and will get you the most bites. The Loxahatchee River has been the hot spot for the past few weeks for catching Snook and Tarpon, and some giant Jacks have been spotted on the surface back there recently. The Hobe Sound Flats are still good right now for a mix of species with similar action to what we have been seeing for the past few weeks up there.

Palm Beach Offshore Fishing Report

The Sailfish bite has been good, but it still has yet to really go off, which is what everyone is waiting for and will happen here soon. Kite fishing off West Palm Beach in 100-200’ of water has been the name of the game. Some really quality Dolphin were pulled out of 150-300’ of water while trolling and a bunch of Kingfish have been hitting well along the Ledge. A fair number of Wahoo were caught this week in 150’ of water off Jupiter. As usual, the Snapper and Grouper bite is consistent in shallower using dead sardines along the bottom in all areas including Boynton Beach.

Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

Well, it is a great day to be a surf fisherman! All the recent surf reports coming in have included one common phrase… “it’s going off!” Mainly because the Spanish Mackerel showed up thick! Anywhere from Jupiter Inlet to Palm Beach Inlet, Spanish Mackerel can be seen skying in the surf and feeding on bait all over the place right now. A bunch of bluefish are mixed in too so it should line up to be a great week for a mixed bag of good surf catches. The Pompano fishing has been very good as well both on the Piers and on the beaches on Goofy Jigs. Tons of fish around right now. Enjoy!

What's Biting Inshore in Palm Beach

The shrimp bite is on for the snook and Tarpon on the bridges and around the Loxahatchee River, especially at night. The Tarpon have been biting especially well in the river. Look for the snook to be around light lines from the bridges, dock lights and seawalls at night and in the early morning. They will be positioned along the bottom in “ambush points” where shrimp will flow with the current right over the fish’s heads. Look for big Jacks to be along the seawalls too and willing to hit a surface lure moving quick. There has been a mixed bag of reports coming in from the Hobe Sound Flats. This is the time of year to take a ride up there! Snook, Snapper, Trout, Bluefish, Pompano, Jacks are all being caught well on live or frozen shrimp on the flats.

Palm Beach Offshore Fishing Report

The weather has made it tough for a lot of guys to get offshore this week and the fishing reports have been slim. The Sail fishing has been good using goggle eyes and blue runners in 100-200’ and we are anticipating it only gets better in the next few weeks. Wahoo fishing was hot right before the foul weather came through, a bunch of nice ones were caught high speed trolling off Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach. Right in the same area as the Sailfish has been big bull Dolphin and a few Cobia as well. The bottom fishing has been consistent with Snapper and a few Grouper off Jupiter in 90’ on Dead Sardines.

Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

The Bluefish are still popping up around the surf and pier in good number, but you can tell they are beginning to thin out a little bit now. The Spanish Mackerel, on the other hand, are still showing up more and more in the surf. The Pompano bite has been great at the Juno Pier and on the surrounding beaches on Goofy Jigs, Sand Fleas or Fish Bites. Not much has changed with the sharks recently, there are still a ton of Blacktip and Spinner sharks cruising the surf zone and striking a fresh cut chunk bait or big surface plugs.

Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

Lots of mixed fishing reports coming from the inshore fishermen this week. Snook fishing around the bridges at night seems to have slowed down dramatically, but there are still some fishing biting down there. There have been multiple good reports of hot action around Munyon Island and McArthur State Park with Snook, Jacks and some Bluefish on Finger Mullet this week. Throwing walk-the-dog style topwater lures or poppers to these fish feeding on finger mullet is an absolute blast. Your best shot is around low light conditions like sunrise, sunset and at night. A few Sheepshead and Black Drum have started popping up in reports this week on live and frozen shrimp and sand fleas.

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach

How is the bite in Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach? Bottom fishing has been the talk of the town this past week with some huge muttons being reported around 90’ of water. The Sailfishing was slow this week mainly due to the southeast wind and swell. The bite will pick right back up though once the wind switches back over to north, or northeast. There was a good Wahoo bite this week from West Palm Beach, south and of course, over in the Bahamas. No real great Dolphin reports this week, but the reports that did come in all said the fish were between 400-600’ of water and caught while trolling. The Kingfish bite has been spotty at best around the 120’ ledge this week but guys targeting them have still managed a few.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

There has been a decent Spanish Mackerel and Kingfish bite around the Juno Pier this week. Anglers are catching the Spanish Mackerel on small spoons or crappie jigs underneath a popping cork. The Kingfish have been biting swimming plugs like the Rapala X-Rap in the morning at first light. Blacktip and Spinner sharks have been swimming around the Juno Pier and surrounding beaches in large numbers recently if you’re looking to hook into something that pulls some serious drag. Both Pompano and Bluefish have been slow this week. There are definitely a few hanging around, but either species has been reportedly difficult to catch.

What's Biting Inshore in Palm Beach

What is being caught inshore? Another late push of Mullet came through this week and had the Snook all fired up. Nighttime is the right time currently and there are a few bruiser jacks in the mix so be ready for them too. There are a bunch of bluefish mixed right in with the Snook and Jacks so throwing soft plastic lures can be a pain right now. This is a great chance to try throwing some hard lures like a Rapala X rap or Yo-Zuri Mag Darter. The wintertime inshore patterns are finally beginning to heat up with some nice Black Drum and Sheepshead being reported on shrimp.

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach

Not all that much to speak off for offshore fishing this week. Some Sailfish are being caught around Jupiter, Boynton Beach and West Palm Beach on live bait, but the bulk of them are still being caught trolling north of Ft. Pierce. Keep an eye out for the Sailfish to be showing up in numbers in these upcoming weeks. Some Kingfish were caught drifting dead sardines around 120’. The Dolphin were in 400-600’ this week, but no crazy numbers to speak of. We are in the middle of a tricky transition period offshore right now. The summer fishing patterns have basically dried up entirely and the Sailfish have not quite shown up in good numbers yet

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

Good reports of a mix of species from the beaches and piers this week. The Spanish Mackerel are spread all up and down the beaches from Juno down to Palm Beach, as are the Bluefish. Small spoons and topwater lures are the best ways to catch these guys in the surf. The Pompano fishing died out this week, but a few were caught here and there. Plenty of sharks around too right now and a few snook in the beach trough.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report

Snook fishing is still great inshore. The Mullet are still around, but not for much longer. Once the mullet all clears out, the shrimp start coming through and it is typically a more difficult bite than when the fish are dialed into the Mullet. Fish your large presentations around the bridges at night now, because before you know it, you will have to downsize drastically to get bit. Some big Jacks and a few Tarpon are being caught in the inlets in the early morning and around sunset, but the best action right now for the Tarpon and Jacks will be found in the Intracoastal Waterway.

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach

Finally, some better weather this week lead to some better fishing reports. It’s not that the fishing hasn’t been good, it has just been difficult for a lot of guys to get out there recently. Dolphin fishing has been excellent all week with some big ones being boated in various depths. Some of the best reports came from 300-400’, but they really seemed to be all over this week. The full moon was a good one for the Wahoo off Jupiter, Boynton Beach and West Palm Beach, but the Bahamas are really starting to light up right off the West End, and that has been the big Wahoo talk recently. Not as many Sailfish this week as expected, but the Kingfish bit good along the 120’ Ledge. Yellowtail and Mutton Snapper fishing along with some nice Grouper have all been biting good on dead sardines in shallow.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

Lots going on around the Surf and Piers last week and plenty of action to get in on this week! The Pompano bite is the best we have seen in a while at the Juno Pier and around the surrounding beaches. Goofy Jigs are the best jigs to use. It seems like they have a different color preference every day so make sure you have your color assortment ready. If you are going to be fishing on the beach for Pompano, use Sand Fleas or FishBites on a hi-lo rig with a pyramid sinker. Some Kingfish have been biting at the pier in the early morning and late afternoons as well. There have been a few Spanish Mackerel around the pier too, but not a whole bunch just yet. The Sharks are getting thick on the beach too. Walk the beach with a large surface plug or throw out a big chunk of fresh cut bait and get ready for a big hookup!

Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

The Inshore species have been chewing as the Mullet run winds down to an end. The snook have been devouring the last bit of the Mullet coming through, mostly at night and in the early morning. With the Mullet schools being less prevalent than the last couple of weeks, try scouting out a few good-looking ambush points where the Snook and Tarpon are going to be holding in the current, waiting for the scattered mullet pods to flow through. There are some big Jacks around too and they are going to be mixed right in with the Snook and Tarpon feeding on the last of the scattered Mullet.

What's Biting Offshore West Palm Beach

Lots of reports coming in from small boats turning around at the inlet or not being able to make it out in general, so fishing reports have been slim. Where are the sailfish being caught in Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach? The start of Sailfish season is approaching, and we have been seeing a good early season run of Sails coming through with the east wind. A few boats reported double digit releases off Jupiter, but others were not so lucky. A couple nice Dolphin were plucked from floating debris this week, but there does not seem to be a whole lot of them within 1000’ these days. Some Wahoo have been reported high speed trolling around Jupiter and the Snapper reports have been good using dead sardines on bottom.

Fishing Report for Palm Beach Pier and Surf

The Bluefish have been thick in the surf zone this week and anglers are having a blast catching them on topwater lures and fast-moving silver jigs. Pompano fishing has also been very good using Goofy Jigs, Sand Fleas and Fish Bites for bait on the Juno Pier and nearby beaches. A few Spanish Mackerel have been biting in the surf too but not the big schools of them that we will be seeing soon. Some Blacktip and Spinner sharks have been cruising around the beaches. This time of year is a great opportunity for some awesome visual strikes on big topwater lures and surface plugs.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report

Some really good reports have been coming from the Munyon Island and Hobe Sound Flats this week. The cooling water temperatures have Snook, Jacks, Pompano and a bunch of the other inshore species moving good right now in shallow water. The fish are feeding on shrimp so make sure to match the hatch and use either live or artificial shrimp or a small lipped swimming lure to target them.

What's Biting Offshore West Palm Beach

Sailfish fishing reports have been very good this week and will only be getting better from here on out. 150-200’ of water south of West Palm Beach Inlet has been holding the most Sailfish lately. Guys are seeing the best action on live goggle eyes and blue runners. There have been a few big bull Dolphin being caught with the Sailfish but no reports of big schools recently. The bottom fishing has been consistently good from Juno to Jupiter in 90’.

Fishing Report for Palm Beach Pier and Surf

The Pompano bite is back on track in Jupiter and Boynton Beach! Guys are catching them at the Juno Pier on Goofy Jigs while the guys on the beach are using sand fleas and Fish Bites with great success. The Bluefish are still all over the beaches and piers and offer anglers a quick bite and fun fight. The Spanish Mackerel have been showing up more and more every day, they are being caught on spoons, gotcha lures and small jigs. Tons of Blacktip Sharks and a few Kingfish have been getting caught over at the Juno Pier this week too.

Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

Fishing has been hot this week with all the Mullet around inshore. Nighttime, sunrise and sunset is when the fish have been most actively feeding, with the best time to target Snook right now being at night. What is biting inshore in Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach? The Snook have been set up in ambush locations where they can let the tide do the work by bringing the Mullet right to them. The Snook will lay along the bottom with their noses facing the current and use bridge pilings, sea walls, jetties and land points as hiding spots where they can take cover and eat the flow of baitfish flowing right over their heads. The key to catching them is a presentation that flows naturally down current. Pitch your lure or baitfish up current and let it flow back to where the fish are. Try and match the speed of your lure to the speed of the current for the most natural presentation possible.

What's Biting Offshore West Palm Beach

The weather really made it tough for guys to get out this week, however, the guys who did found great numbers of Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) fishing reports are scattered throughout 200-900’. The Dolphin were spread out and the structure has not been holding them well, so trolling is the best shot to cover a lot of water and find some fish. There have been quite a few quality Sailfish reports coming in. The Sailfish guys are anticipating that this bite picks up even more as the north wind increases and should be really kicking off soon. In shallower, the Kingfish, Cobia and a few Wahoo have been biting on the 120’ ledge from Jupiter down to Palm Beach Inlet and the Snapper bite has been great in 90’ of water on dead sardines.

Fishing Report for Palm Beach Pier and Surf

The surf fishermen had a great week of fishing along the beaches and on the piers catching Snook, Tarpon, Bluefish, Pompano, and Blacktip/Spinner Sharks. There have been plenty of sharks in the surf and guys are catching them on fresh cut bait. There are still some Tarpon rolling up and down the beaches too, look for them to be in the Mullet schools. The Pompano are being caught in the surf zone on the Juno Pier and on the surrounding beaches on Goofy Jigs as well as bait like sand fleas and FishBites. The Bluefish have been all over the surf and piers eating topwater lures, spoons, jigs and anything else flashy that moves quickly through the water.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

Don’t let the dirty water throw you off in Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach, there are still plenty of mullet schools pushing down the beach with Snook, Tarpon and Jacks right behind them.  Look for some snook to be farther inshore on the bridges, seawalls and boat docks at night and in the early morning as well. Usually this time of year, the snook are staged up in areas where they can use the tide as a “conveyor belt” for the mullet and exert less energy feeding this way, than chasing around the schools. Make sure you are fishing when the tide is moving because that will get the mullet moving around, and the snook will be waiting in predictable spots to ambush them.

What's Biting Offshore West Palm Beach

The offshore weather has been absolutely terrible this past week and no reports have come in. This weekend is going to be a blowout as well, so take the time to organize your tackle, clean your gear and restock on anything you will need for sailfish season!

Fishing Report for Palm Beach Pier and Surf

Heavy surf conditions usually bring good fishing but can cause the surf to become unfishable. The water conditions this week were too rough for fishing at times, but when the conditions were fishable, anglers reported great catches. When the surf gets rough like this, inlet fishing really shines around here. Tarpon, Jacks and Snook all use the large swell and white water in the inlets as cover to feed. Tarpon and Jacks can be seen visually feeding on the surface while the snook are feeding along the bottom or in the mullet schools. Look for visual signs of life including pods of mullet spraying, tarpon rolling and jacks tearing up the surface in the inlets this week.

What's Biting Inshore in Palm Beach

Both Snook and Tarpon fishing has been good this week inshore as the mullet continue their southern migration. The snook have been holding thick under the bridges this week along with a whole bunch of Tarpon. Put some time into fishing the bridges at night with Flair Hawk jigs to hook into both species.

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach

Offshore action has been hot this past week. Great Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) fishing reports have been coming from just south of the West Palm Beach Inlet and down to the Loran Tower in 200-600’ of water. The usual trolling spread for Dolphin will help you locate the schools. One line down, one far back and two out with small jet head feathers or skirted lures tipped with squid, Bonita strips or ballyhoo will give you the best probability of putting some meat in the box. There have been several Sailfish mixed in with the Dolphin as well which is an extremely good sign for this upcoming Sailfish season. Kingfish have been biting well around the 120’ ledge and the Snapper fishing has been productive with dead sardines in 80-95’ of water.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

What is being caught in Jupiter? Fishing from the Juno Beach Fishing Pier has been good this week with plenty of reports from a variety of species coming in. Pompano, Bluefish and a few Tripletail are being caught right now on Goofy Jigs towards the surf zone. Snook and Tarpon are still being caught around the Mullet schools both from the pier and off the beach as well. If you haven’t yet, get out there and take advantage of the awesome surf action taking place right now. It won’t be long until all the small Bluefish push in and completely take over the Mullet schools!

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

The mullet run was in full swing this week on the inshore fishing grounds with Tarpon, Snook, Jacks and a Redfish or two regularly being caught. The best times to target these fish feeding on the mullet schools is early in the morning, late afternoon and at night. Anglers using swimming plugs, walk-the-dog style topwater lures, big swimbaits and live mullet are all getting tight right now on some amazing fish. Bridges, piers and beaches are all great locations to get in on the Mullet run. When on a Mullet school, fish your lures around the outside edges and underneath the schools to get the most bites. The Mullet like to school up tight, so swimming a lure right through the middle of them is not an ideal presentation. The predator fish feed on injured baitfish around the outsides of the bait school and it is much easier for them to key in on your lure or baitfish when it is not surrounded by lively Mullet.

What's Biting Offshore Palm Beach

Fishing has been a bit slower this week mainly due to the poor weather and water conditions. Bottom fishing has been especially tough this week because of a cold layer of water along the bottom combined with churned up, dirty water in shallow. If you are looking to bottom fish in the next few days, head south of the Palm Beach Inlet to find some better water. Some smaller Kingfish have been biting around the edges of the green water with a few big ones scattered throughout. Look for color changes in the water where the green meets the blue to get in on the Kingfish action. Anglers running to deep water have been finding Dolphin in 1000-1200,’ make sure you are finding clean water out there before you start fishing to maximize your chance of success.

West Palm Beach Pier-Surf Fishing Report

With the water being so dirty along the surf trough this week, fishing has been tough but plenty of guys are still managing nice catches. Local anglers have been reporting Snook biting well in some of the smaller Mullet pods and big Tarpon rolling through the big pods. It has been challenging for surf fishermen to consistently hook into these fish due to the changing conditions but as the weather begins to steady and the water cleans up, day to day action will increase. A few Redfish have been biting at the Juno Pier, along the surrounding beaches and in the inlets as well. There are not a whole lot of them, but this time of year it is not uncommon to encounter a few nice reds while Snook fishing.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report for Palm Beach

Snapper fishing has been fantastic this week following the storm. Frozen shrimp on a Carolina rig is a great way to catch snapper inshore right now. Following a big storm is also a great opportunity to catch a grouper while inshore fishing. With giant mullet schools finally around, snook, tarpon and jacks have all been fired up, actively feeding in and around the schools of mullet. You want to be fishing around the outside edges of the mullet schools because it is difficult for the fish to key in on your lure or baitfish when it is surrounded by a cloud of other fish. This is a great time to fish swimming plugs, big swimbaits and live mullet around the active mullet schools.

What's Biting Offshore West Palm Beach

Due to the weather conditions, not many boats were able to get offshore this week, so Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach fishing reports have been scattered, but all are reporting the same thing… quality fishing! It has been difficult to find good, clean water so keep pushing out deeper if you do not find it right away. There has been a lot of floating debris out there left over from the storm. Trolling small jet head feathers, skirted lures, dusters and Ilanders tipped with ballyhoo are a great shot for finding schools of dolphin. Chumming around floating debris and fishing with live baits is a great way to catch some of the bigger bull dolphin that are hunting around the debris. Anglers have been catching some sailfish and wahoo mixed right in with the dolphin so make sure you have some wire on your deep line. If you can find clean water around 500-800’, you should have good luck finding the wahoo and sails.

Fishing Report for Palm Beach Pier and Surf

As the mullet show up more and more on the beaches so do the predatory fish. Snook, tarpon, jacks, sharks, Spanish mackerel and bluefish have all been devouring schools of mullet along the beach. The fishing was a bit tough earlier in the week due to the dirty water left over from the storm but picked up quickly as it cleaned. This is the best time to fish the mullet schools along the beach because when they first show up, they are being fed on mostly by snook and tarpon. As the run progresses, more and more bluefish show up in the schools making it difficult for anglers to get their lures past them. Fish in low light conditions to spot the schools better and encounter the fish at the peak of their feed and when they are most willing to hit a swimming plug.

Palm Beach Inshore Fishing Report

Snook Season is upon us! Next week, snook fishing will open back up. Anglers who possess their $10 snook permit can legally keep one snook 28-32 inches. Get out this week to dial yourself back into the bite and find where the slots are hiding. Large, natural colored swimbaits are a great choice for the snook during the day. If you are fishing at night, sweep a chartreuse flair hawk jig along the bottom and get ready for that thump. The Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach summer snook spawn is coming to an end and the fish are beginning to move out of the inlets and stage in new areas farther inshore like the Loxahatchee River and Intracoastal Waterway. Look for these hungry post-spawn snook to be hiding at ambush points with strong moving current and structure along the bottom.

What's Biting Offshore West Palm Beach

What has been biting offshore? Offshore fishing has been a little more difficult than usual this week. The Kingfish bite has been spotty at best recently. The fishing has been tough, but guys trying are still able to put a nice kingfish or two in the box. The Dolphin fishing reports have been scattered and so have the fish. The best depths to find the Dolphin right now is in the 700-900’ range, but there has been little consistency to the reports so you will likely need to spend some time scouting around the zone before finding a school of fish. Trolling your typical Dolphin spread will give you the highest probability of finding some of them because you can cover plenty of water while searching and offer a variety of different presentations to the fish. One line down, one far back and two out is a good rule of thumb to target Dolphin on the troll right now. As usual, snapper fishing has been great and seems to be the best shot at putting meat in the cooler right now.

Fishing Report for Palm Beach Pier and Surf

Snook fishing has been good at the Juno and Lake Worth Fishing Piers and along the surrounding beaches this week. However, some of the other species commonly found in the surf zone have been almost non-existent. Don’t forget, snook season opens up next week! The surf and pier fishing will really heat up soon when the mullet begin showing up in more numbers. The Pompano bite has been hot in the early mornings starting at Jupiter and heading north. You will have to sort through a number or shorts to find your keepers, but they are in the mix for sure. The glass minnow run is in full swing from Stuart up to Sebastian Inlet. You will have to do some beach hopping to find the minnow schools with tarpon feeding around them but when you do, it should be game on!
