Inshore fishing was good this week for catch and release Snook fishing. The local bridges, dock lights and marinas around Jupiter, West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach at night have all been a really good bet for catching Snook right now, especially at night. The Snook have been positioning themselves in shadow lines at night, so they can ambush the shrimp flowing the lights through the current. Use a live or artificial shrimp and let it flow naturally through the light and right into the shadows where the Snook are waiting for an easy meal. Sheepshead and some Black Drum have been around and can be caught on sand fleas, fiddler crabs, shrimp and FishBites. Expect more and more of these fish to pile in here in upcoming weeks. Mixed in with the Sheepshead and Black Drum have been some Redfish showing up as well. There has been a nice mixed bag of species to catch Inshore right now. Enjoy!
The Sailfishing really picked up this week. What is being caught right now? Many boats fishing report said they are releasing multiple Sailfish around 150-200’ of water anywhere from Jupiter Inlet to Palm Beach Inlet. Some bull Dolphin have been getting caught mixed right in with the Sails for the past few weeks and they are still hanging right around that Sailfish zone and a little deeper. The Kingfish action is still good up and down the 120’ ledge. They are being caught in good numbers right now, with a few nice ones in the mix. Bottom fishing picked back up this week as well. The Snapper were biting in 90-100’ of water from Jupiter Inlet to Juno Pier on sardines.
The talk of the surf right now has been Spanish Mackerel. They really started going off up in Peck Lake this week. There has also been a good amount of them around the Juno Pier. Use crappie jigs, little x-raps, spoons or gotcha jigs to catch them. Pompano fishing has been on the slower side around Juno, with most f the action being found north of Jupiter Inlet and in the Hobe Sound. A ton of sharks have been cruising right in the beach trough which a bunch of surf anglers have been enjoying catching on big surface plugs or a fresh chunk bait on bottom.
