Kayak Fishing: August 2019

by Brian Nelli, Contributing Writer

INSHORE: Snook is what you should be targeting this month. Fishing dock lights and bridge shadow lines at night is a great way to catch a linesider and avoid the heat. If you can get out during the day, switch to fishing seawalls and docks with good current. Launching at Sawfish Bay Park in Jupiter will put you near reliable areas. There are plenty of pilchards, threadfins, and sardines around the piers and inlets to catch for bait. Loading up the kayak and chasing snook and tarpon along the beach is a great option right now. Get out early and launch at places like the south side of Jupiter Inlet. Run the beach south looking for rolling fish and snook in the surf line.

 

OFFSHORE: Fishing off Palm Beach County should produce plenty of kingfish and sailfish. Using goggle eyes, pilchards, threadfins, and blue runners will be top choices. If you are looking for a mahi dinner make the run 4-8 miles out looking for weedlines. Plan your launch and take out spots as the current will most likely push you 10-20 miles from your launch spot. I like to launch at Boca Raton Inlet and drift to Palm Beach Inlet on these long range trips. Trolling a daisy chain or pilchards will help put a fish in the kayak. Most will be small, but there are chances for a big bull.
