Fishing has been slow this week, especially offshore. A few anglers have scored some dolphin around 400’, but they were lucky enough to find the perfect weedline with a decent school hanging around. Kingfish and snapper have been as scattered as ever, but for those really craving smoked fish dip, the best bet is at the 120’ ledge as usual.
The mullet run still hasn't shown up to turn up the heat on snook fishing, but until then it has still been pretty exceptional during low lighted days and at night. Juno Bait shop recommends SpoolTeks, flairhawks, and Yo-Zuri Mag Darters to lure in snook this weekend. Try for them near bridges, at Juno Pier, or Jupiter Inlet with live croakers. A few tarpon have been hanging out at Palm Beach Inlet, but nothing outrageous has been caught.
According to NOAA, it’s looking to be a rainy weekend with Sunday being the best day to be on the water. Thank goodness we have a college football stadium around the corner!
