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!
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.
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.
