INSHORE- Despite dirty water conditions throughout much of the local area, the mullet continue to push through and the fish are around. Look for the mullet to be the most active and moving around during lowlight periods of the day and at night. Snook will be the main predators around, mixed in will be a good number of tarpon and jacks as well. Look for the snook to be hanging around bridges, boat docks seawalls, and other areas that they can use the tide to funnel the mullet to them. The tarpon and jacks are not as specific and will more commonly be just following the schools of mullet. No surprise here...Look for the predators to feed best on moving water. Incoming or outgoing tide will push the mullet, and the predators will line up to take advantage of easy meals. Try throwing Rapala X-Raps, Yo-Zuri Mag Darters, Flair Hawk style jigs, and bigger swimbaits around the mullet schools. Fish around the edges of the mullet schools for best results. If your fishing live mullet; also fish them around the edges or under the schools for best luck.
SURF/PIER- Rough conditions again for surf guys this week. Water conditions are brutal, and conditions are not conducive to fishing. Look for Jupiter and Palm Beach Inlet to be good alternatives to surf and pier fishing this week. The mullet are around and plenty of stuff is around feeding on them. Snook and tarpon are in the inlet, along with some bruiser jacks. In between the brutal surf and dirty water conditions a few pompano reports are trickling in. Hoping for some better weather soon...we need it!
