FISHING FORECAST 8.21.15

Posted by Nicole Richards on Friday, August 21st, 2015 at 10:56am.



Weather this weekend in South Florida is predicted to be a nice forecast and should make for a great fishing weekend! There will be a light east/northeast wind, known to help push in the dolphin a bit closer to shore, but lately dolphin have been found from 8 to 15 miles offshore in South Florida.

There has been a lot of patches of grass and formed weed lines offshore, which is the usual dolphin trolling spread around these floating debris. However, just in case you do stumble upon a tripletail floating with the weeds, while you’re searching for the colorful dolphin, keep some cut up bait ready to throw, it will surely be picked up and gather some excitement on your trolling adventure.

There has been a mixed bag of kingfish, Bonita’s and even some Wahoo’s, but as we get closer to the end of the month when the glowing full moon phase happens, wahoo bite will pick up! Captain Jimbo Thomas suggests using a planer or wire line on a drone spoon or Bonita strip from about 120-300 ft. of water to hook them up with.

Also, with the full moon ahead, Capt. Fernando Stalker on the Sea Stalker Charters has been having a fantastic time on their charter within Stuart, Florida and fishing inshore hooking up the snook all over the waterways, which he says has been on fire and bringing up monster snooks! Plenty of smiles to his first time snook anglers! He suggests using top water plugs and big swim baits along with the best choice of live mullet. (*Remember, Snook season is not open until Septemeber 1, 2015, so you must revive them back into the waters safely.) 

 

The Juno Beach Fishing Report suggests, “In along the 120' ledge kingfish action has been good.  Drifting with live sardines, or dead sardines on a knocker rig, is a good bet for the kingfish.  Best bite has been in the morning, but a few kings are being caught in the afternoon as well.” in Juno Beach, Florida.

On the reef, Snapper fishing has been great in the evening time such as, mangrove and mutton snappers!

The push of the mullet is starting on the beaches. Snook bite has really picked up in the entire region of South Florida and Tarpon are in the inlets and Intracoastal waterways too!

Further South in Key Biscayne Bay, there has been a great supply of bonefish and permit being caught!

Have fun fishing this weekend in the South Florida region
