When the wind didn't keep the boats at the dock, there were plenty of catches in this week's fishing reports. Tomcat Charters out of Jupiter reported a steady sailfish bite in the 130 to 180 foot range on several trips this week. Most fishing reports in Jupiter and Palm Beach included anglers flying kites and using goggle eyes to target sailfish. Anglers who free lined baits on the surface while the kites were flying also reported both kingfish and mahi in the spread. Earlier in the week, a couple of nice wahoo were also caught by some boats departing from sailfish Marina on Singer Island. For those angler's bottom fishing along the 120' ledge out of Jupiter and along Juno Beach, several reported catching some keeper cobia with a pretty decent mix of kingfish. Try using a triple hook with frozen sardines for some success.
With each passing week, the inshore fishing reports are seeing better and better results targeting both Black Drum and Sheepshead. As the colder weather rolled in this week, the Snook fishing reports continued to show a steady decline but persistent anglers did have mild success further up the river.
Dominating this weeks fishing reports were catches of Spanish Mackerel throughout this week and past weekend fishing reports. Many of the surf fishing anglers from Singer Island Beaches to the Juno Pier were rewarded throwing their favorite shiny lures--including the always deadly Shimano Coltsniper and Gotcha Lures. These lures tend to be much easier to cast off the surf in the windy conditions. As far as Juno Pier fishing reports, many of the anglers are using the small white crappie jig or silverside lures to land their fair share of Spanish Mackerel. There are scattered reports of Pompano on the beaches so be sure to give it a try using the Fishbites artificial bait in the surf along Singer Island.
