Kayak Fishing July 2019

Ivan with a handful

INSHORE SSnook season may be closed but it’s the best time to get in on the catch and release. The beaches and inlets are your best bets for snook fishing. Bucktail jigs and live bait fished near the bottom around the mouths of the inlets will work well. Be aware of strong currents and large boats if you plan to fish in any inlet.  Be sure to have a PFD and all safety equipment for any trip. A good kayak launch is the south side of Jupiter Inlet. Try fishing the outside of the north and south jetty as well as drifting the current in the main channel.

OFFSHORE: Expect the offshore kingfish bite to remain consistent especially in the Singer Island area. Fishing the depths of 70’-150’ will put you in the zone for kings. Fishing further south will put you in closer proximity to deep water for sailfish, mahi, tuna, and wahoo. If you’re looking to get a mahi bite, run out 5-8 miles. Most will be small, but there are chances for a big bull.  The wahoo bite should be on the mind this month. Running baits deeper in the water column anywhere from 60’-80’ below surface will give you the best opportunity to land a wahoo. Tuna chances will remain good while vertical jigging. Look to fish the 220’-260’ range.

See you on the water!
