Snook fishing is getting good inshore right now and the fishing is only expected to improve in the next few weeks as the Snook begin taking up their summer spawning habitats in the local inlets and on the beaches. Bridge fishing at night has been good on the outgoing tide. Use Flair Hawks and big swimbaits to produce some bigger bites and shrimp lures swept across the light lines is a great way to get into some numbers right now. A bunch of Jacks moving and some tarpon inshore right now as well. More and more Mangrove Snapper reports have been coming in as the summer approaches.
Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) fishing reports were a bit scattered this week. With some fish being caught all over so trolling a variety of different baits is your best shot at running into some Dolphin right now. A good amount of Blackfin Tuna in the area too right now and a few Wahoo being caught. The Kingfish bite has been good all week with some big fish in the mix. Bonyton Beach to West Palm Beach to Jupiter is the zone and they’re hanging out from 120-150’ of water around the ledge. Drifting live baits has been producing the best Kingfish action lately. A few Cobia being caught right in that same zone too. A few daytime Swordfish reports have been coming in this week as well, bites have been pretty consistent lately!
A good Pompano bite was had at the Juno Pier this week and on the surrounding beaches. We have been seeing less and less of them recently so reports of nice Pompano are definitely welcomed this time of year! The Snook fishing at the pier and on the beaches is getting better as well. Dead sardines are still the bait of choice for the Snook, but it seems like a few more big fish are being caught on live baits daily. Big Jacks have been spotted cruising through the pier and up and down the beaches which is exciting for guys looking for a big fight from the beach. Jump Spanish Mackerel have been all over the Pier and on the beaches too and the Croaker and Whiting are biting fresh or frozen shrimp right past the waves in the surf.
