10.3.14 Fishing Report
Fishing should be a bit shaken up this weekend due to the first “cool” front of the season in South Florida.
The west winds have divided up the dolphin fishing a tad as you may find decent size schools of dolphin up to 15 pounds from 11 to 13 miles offshore. Trolling with ballyhoo or drifting with live mullet seems to always be excellent choices of bait to lure in the dolphin right now. Captains are predicting some sailfish action to be good this coming weekend with some possibly north wind in the forecast. Nearby on the edge, you will be able to discover some kingfish with occasional wahoo tagging along, by trolling around with a Bonita strip or spoon. With the perfect mix of current and water quality, snapper fishing are hooking up pretty well.
The shift in the weather has the inshore fishing getting remarkably even better due to the season and the tide is getting higher as the weather slowly altering. The mullet run is still strong with massive schools roaming our South Florida waterways. With the tide continuously moving up, this puts baitfish on the seawall or the shoreline, which is an ambush point for the game fish. As the finger mullet are trapped on the seawall or shoreline, the only way the finger mullet have out is to go up. So, the best bet for catching these game fish, such as snook, is to use a small top water plug or shiner. Captain Mike Holliday reported, “The game fish are mainly focused on finger mullet and not necessarily the larger or horse mullet.” So, throw these small top water or finger mullet on the sea walls, near lights and in the inlets for a good opportunity of hooking a nice size tarpon, snook, jack crevalle, or ladyfish.
There are tons of awesome fishing actions hitting the beach right now with massive schools of mullet filling up with predators of all kinds. The Juno Bait Fishing Report mentioned, “The Juno Beach Pier has lots of snook around, some pompano, good numbers of small king fish and even a few cobias already!”
Dont miss the Action... Go Fishing!!!
