Strong fishing throughout South Florida – Palm Beach Post
Off Jupiter last week there were some banded rudderfish caught in 90 to 110 feet of water.
The bottom fishing for lane, vermilion and mutton snapper has been slow, but will likely pick up this weekend with the southeast breezes forecasted.
Last week, there was a window of calm seas and anglers looking for swordfish took full advantage. Traveling out to 1,400 to 1,500 feet of water, there were multiple hook-ups and several of the big fish landed.
There was also a decent kingfish bite off the Loran Tower in 90 to 110 feet recently. In the 6- to 10-pound range, they weren’t big, but they were there and could be again in the coming days.
With a good number of frigate birds spotted recently and decent weather and lighter winds predicted this weekend, it could be worth it to go looking for dolphin.
Anglers up for the hunt should look for weedlines and current changes in 500 to 600 feet of water and could hit payday trolling ballyhoo, squid or mullet.
Off Singer Island, there have been a few sailfish caught recently in 130 feet of water.
There have also been some 10- to 20-pound kingfish as well in 70 to 90 feet.
Fishing off Boynton Beach there have been dolphin caught on the drift in 75 feet of water. Most are averaging around 6 pounds, but there have been some up to 12 pounds.
There have been a few wahoo caught on the drift as well, using triple-hooked ballyhoo and cigar minnows. Most have been on the small side between 12 to 20 pounds and being caught in 90 feet of water.
