Jupiter - Saltwater Fishing Report
The hot bite is continuing off Jupiter, FL. these days. Cobia are still being caught in decent numbers in 110' - 165' just north of the inlet. Also look for them in shallower water under the large rays that are cruising just off the beach.
It seems the Mahi bite is finally coming back in decent numbers and sizes. Find the weed lines or patches and you'll find the fish. Start along the ledge in 150' and if you don't find them there, move farther offshore till you find larger weed patches that are almost certain to hold fish. The birds overhead are a great way to help find these patches.
The Kingfish bite is also still hot. Almost everyone is catching Kings just inside the ledge in 90' - 110'. Many of these are true "smoker" Kings.
Finally, Blackfin Tuna are running offshore in 250' - 350'. You can find these trolling small daisy chain lures and artificials.
Jupiter Fishing Forecast:
The June bite should continue to be hot. Keep targeting Kingfish and Cobia in shallower water, Mahi anywhere you can find a large weed line or patch, and Blackfin Tuna out a little deeper.
Don't write off Sailfish this time of year. We had one just last weekend hit our spread just as we were putting our second bait out. They put on an amazing fight with their jumps and runs.
