With the mullet run being the highlight of the past couple of weeks, most fishing has been geared toward snook, large tarpon, and amberjack chasing schools through inlets, inshore, on the beach, and at the Juno Pier. Your trustiest bait is live mullet itself, which can be found during low light periods of the day away from boat traffic. If you’re looking for a little more fun in exchange for less reliability, using top water plugs creates some exciting action as snook will strike these much harder, sometimes becoming airborne exploding on the surface.

Reef anglers should be catching some kingfish and snapper this time of year, but this week has been abnormally slow. Smaller tastier kings are plenty, and trolling with feathers at the 120’ drop off point is a surefire way to snag some. To deceive the keen eyesight of snapper, Captain Weston Russell of Reel Intense Fishing Charters recommends using a long leader and black hooks.

Offshore fishing has been light this week, and the full moon surprisingly didn’t seem to produce much. The dolphin bite has been cooling off, but anglers have been catching a few football-sized blackfin tuna in 200-300’ of water. Juno Bait recommends trolling with small feathers and daisy chains for tuna, and dolphin has been going after bonita strips with black skirts if you find a good weed patch.
