Palm Beach County Weekend Fishing Report: 10/26/2018

The bite was scarce last weekend, but it seems to have been picking up this week due to the full moon. A few wahoo are starting to show up from the full moon and mild cold front, especially closer to the Bahamas. Around here, 150-400’ is where wahoo have hooked up along with blackfin tuna. Troll with small feathers during lowlight for tuna, and use the small ones to catch wahoo. Another option is to pick up a local favorite Junkanoo Lure and high speed troll in a zig-zag pattern. Sailfish are also coming out of the woodwork, and kite fishing with hearty live baits like goggle-eyes or blue runners is your best bet.

Kingfish and large mutton snapper have been eating sardines near 120 – 200’, and yellowtail snapper has been showing up in strong numbers.

Inshore, the mullet run is still hot, and snook, jacks, tarpon, ladyfish, and redfish aren’t far behind them. Live mullet or top water plugs at low-lighted times of the day near bridges, Juno Pier, Jupiter Jetty, or Palm Beach Inlet should bring you some bites during outgoing tides.

The Juno Beach pier and the beach has has been pretty sold, with lots of bluefish, Spanish mackerel, jacks, runners, pompano, jacks, and redfish. Juno Bait recommends a Rapala X-Rap or Yo-Zuri Mag Darter for some solid action. Mangrove snapper have been feasting on live shrimp at the pier this week as well.
