The bridges and spillways are the best shot for inshore catch and release Snook fishing right now, as they are both holding a good number of fish. The bridges are producing best during outgoing tide at night right now and the fish have been stacking up thick in the spillways when they are open. More Jack reports coming from early in the morning. They are cruising along sea walls right now looking to attack an easy meal. A live mullet, surface jig or noisy topwater plug is all you need to draw some vicious strikes from these Jacks!
Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) fishing reports remain spread out this week, but we did see a whole bunch of really nice fishing reports for them this week. Most of the reported Dolphin were in 500’+ of water, and the guys reporting phenomenal days were all fishing 1000’+ of water. Trolling will be your best shot of coving some water and finding some feeding Dolphin right now. The Blackfin Tuna are still biting well in 200-300’ of water on the troll. Blackfin tend to like small feathers in dark colors so black/purple colored little feathers or skirted lures sent way back in the spread is a great way to put some tuna fish in the box this week! Kingfish were biting around the 120’ ledge once again. Drifting around while using sardines (live or dead) on a Kingfish rig is a great bet for landing some Kingfish this week. They have been biting best during low light conditions both in the morning and evening. Snapper fishing has been good this week in 60-90’ off Jupiter.
More and more big spawning Snook have been showing, and the bite is hot! The Juno Beach Fishing Pier, Palm Beach Inlet, Boynton Beach and Jupiter inlet are all hot spots right now. Large live baits are the best bait to hook up with a big Snook right now. Croakers and Sand Perch caught in the surf are by far the best baits to use during the day. At night, switch over to artificial jigs like Flair Hawks and big swimbaits and sweep them slowly along the bottom. You want the jig to be hovering over the bottom at the same speed as the current. Snook fishing has also been good along the beach during high tide. Look for the Snook to be cruising in the first beach trough and sight fish them with a small swimbait or a live bait.
