Inshore Fishing Report

Trout fishing has been pretty good if you can find the glass minnow schools. The spring mullet run should push more bait into the river this month and really get the bite going. The pompano fishing is getting even better fishing channel edges north of Jupiter. Live shrimp and goofy jigs are the ticket to putting these guys on ice. Water temps have cooled so fishing later in the day will be good around mangrove shore lines and potholes. These areas will hold fish trying to warm up. Right now using a DOA shad tail or Mirrolure Mirrodine are best bets. Snook are starting to show up on flats and surrounding creeks off the flats. Baits resembling current bait fish like glass minnows, pilchards and mullet will work best.

Offshore Fishing Report

Offshore is about to heat up in the next month. Right now the dolphin bite has been good as well as some spotty cobia reports from Palm Beach to Boynton Beach. As usual using live baits such as goggle eyes and blue runners will be your best bet for Dolphin and a cruising cobia. Bigger concentrations of cobia can be found bouncing the bottom of the reef in 60-80 feet. Try using a DOA swimming mullet or a 3oz buck tail jig.
