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.
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.
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.
