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.
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.
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
