Jupiter - Saltwater Fishing Report
Slow Slow Slow
Weekend action turned out to be awful. Schoolie dorado all measuring up to be just over limit some in the 3-4 lb. range. Others out there ran up to 20 miles off shore looking for action, same results except in less numbers. A color change has been working off the shelf in about 110ft I want to say.
As the front bringing strong winds and rougher seas as well as cooler night time temps, may pick up the fishing some. If it doesn't I don't expect the sail bite to improve until November 2008 (hah). Kingfish action is still out there and the mackerel bite seems just as strong as some commercial guys have been bagging triple digits in lbs.
If you get out this weekend you'll be catching the tail end of this front, if you can make it out during the week give it a shot.
