Juno Bait's "Weekend Fishing Outlook"
For Weekend of 3/24-3/26/2023
OFFSHORE- Some good dolphin reports coming in towards the end of the week. Calming seas and southeast winds will likely set the dolphin fishing on fire this weekend. Look for the fish to be in 200-400' of water, especially around structure. Trolling ballyhoo, bonita strips, or squid will be a good bet for the dolphin. Live baits under the kite will no doubt also draw in some dolphin. Sailfish action remained good this week in 120-200' of water. Bottom fishing has been good this week with some solid snapper action, along with a few big cobia as well. Sardines and squid remain great bait options on the bottom.
INSHORE- Snook fishing was good this week inshore. A fair number of mullet moving around inshore; and the snook aren't too far behind along with a few jacks and maybe a tarpon or two. The night bridge bite started to improve this week as well. Sheepshead action seemed to slack off a bit, but still a few around. Palm Beach Inlet has had some bruiser jacks cruising through. A few early season mangrove snapper starting to show up inshore.
SURF/PIER- Really, and I mean REALLY, good pompano fishing this week both along the beach and at the Juno Beach Pier. On the beach the usual assortment of baits (sandfleas, clams, shrimp, and Fishbites) are getting the job donr on the pomps. Best bite has been first thing in the morning, and then again late afternoon. On the Juno Beach Pier the pomps are biting Doc's Goofy Jigs in bright colors the best. Pink and green jigs have been the most productive. A handful of ladyfish and bluefish mixed in with the pomps. Some big jacks cruising through the pier as well over the past few days.
