Both Snook and Tarpon fishing has been good this week inshore as the mullet continue their southern migration. The snook have been holding thick under the bridges this week along with a whole bunch of Tarpon. Put some time into fishing the bridges at night with Flair Hawk jigs to hook into both species.
Offshore action has been hot this past week. Great Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) fishing reports have been coming from just south of the West Palm Beach Inlet and down to the Loran Tower in 200-600’ of water. The usual trolling spread for Dolphin will help you locate the schools. One line down, one far back and two out with small jet head feathers or skirted lures tipped with squid, Bonita strips or ballyhoo will give you the best probability of putting some meat in the box. There have been several Sailfish mixed in with the Dolphin as well which is an extremely good sign for this upcoming Sailfish season. Kingfish have been biting well around the 120’ ledge and the Snapper fishing has been productive with dead sardines in 80-95’ of water.
What is being caught in Jupiter? Fishing from the Juno Beach Fishing Pier has been good this week with plenty of reports from a variety of species coming in. Pompano, Bluefish and a few Tripletail are being caught right now on Goofy Jigs towards the surf zone. Snook and Tarpon are still being caught around the Mullet schools both from the pier and off the beach as well. If you haven’t yet, get out there and take advantage of the awesome surf action taking place right now. It won’t be long until all the small Bluefish push in and completely take over the Mullet schools!
