Snook fishing is the main game right now on the inshore scene and is what is being caught lately. They have been keyed in on the shrimp, but larger jigs and swimbaits have been producing more quality bites on the bridges at night. During the day, make sure to scale down your presentation to match the hatch. Vudu shrimp lures are the go-to both during the day and night for the snook and will get you the most bites. The Loxahatchee River has been the hot spot for the past few weeks for catching Snook and Tarpon, and some giant Jacks have been spotted on the surface back there recently. The Hobe Sound Flats are still good right now for a mix of species with similar action to what we have been seeing for the past few weeks up there.
The Sailfish bite has been good, but it still has yet to really go off, which is what everyone is waiting for and will happen here soon. Kite fishing off West Palm Beach in 100-200’ of water has been the name of the game. Some really quality Dolphin were pulled out of 150-300’ of water while trolling and a bunch of Kingfish have been hitting well along the Ledge. A fair number of Wahoo were caught this week in 150’ of water off Jupiter. As usual, the Snapper and Grouper bite is consistent in shallower using dead sardines along the bottom in all areas including Boynton Beach.
Well, it is a great day to be a surf fisherman! All the recent surf reports coming in have included one common phrase… “it’s going off!” Mainly because the Spanish Mackerel showed up thick! Anywhere from Jupiter Inlet to Palm Beach Inlet, Spanish Mackerel can be seen skying in the surf and feeding on bait all over the place right now. A bunch of bluefish are mixed in too so it should line up to be a great week for a mixed bag of good surf catches. The Pompano fishing has been very good as well both on the Piers and on the beaches on Goofy Jigs. Tons of fish around right now. Enjoy!
