Fishing Report
South Florida has taken over some higher pressure and the NOAA weather is expecting gusts to be northeast to east at 15-20 knots throughout the weekend.

OFFSHORE- It has been a tough week offshore for anglers, however many fishing teams have been going offshore to practice for The Silver Sailfish Derby. Some reports of a few sailfish and a handful of dolphin were seen this week from 150’-350’ of water. Around the time of the full moon, a few wahoo were reported and caught. The best bite offshore this  week has been from fishing on the bottom, yellowtail and mangrove snappers were most popular pulling up, in about 70-90’ of water.

INSHORE- The Intracoastal Waterway has improved some action this week as the coming cold front approaches South Florida. Holding jacks, ladyfish and snook are constantly hooking up on the line, these fish seem to always keep things interesting. Sea trout bite has been awesome in the wilderness areas and the flats, hiding in the pot holes of the grass just waiting for the next meal to drift along. Snook fishing has been very consistent around the docks, sea walls and all the inlets in South Florida. Once you find one snook, you may find run into many more as they have been in groups and schools.

SURF/PIER- Surf action has been a little dull and croakers have been the bulk of the catch especially at the Juno Beach Pier earlier in the week. Spanish Mackerel and plenty of blue runners are chasing the lines off the beach and piers.
