You might have to think outside the box a little bit for now to get in on the inshore action because most access is closed, but the fishing is on fire! Snook, Jacks and Tarpon have all been making solid appearances inshore this week. Fishing bridges at night with Flair Hawk jigs and large swimbaits will get you some quality fish while throwing topwater for the low light conditions during the day is an exciting way to get bites right now.
Sailfish action continued over the last week. These past few weeks have been the best bite we have seen yet, with a lot of boats releasing double digit Sails regularly. Depending on the day, best depth range for the Sailfish right now is between 175-225’ of water. 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.
The beaches are still closed in Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach so still no surf and pier reports to speak of, but Spanish Mackerel are thick along the beach right now!
