Jupiter & Palm Beach Offshore Saltwater Fishing Report

Capt. Rob Mazzei
February 13, 2000
Jupiter - Saltwater Fishing Report

Marlin In The Midst

Although my boat didn't catch one, the talk at the dock this week was all blue - blue marlin to be more accurate. Early in the week, several blue marlin were caught offshore. More were sighted in the area as well. There have also been spotty catches of dolphin, which may explain the recent influx of marlin. Marlin eat dolphin! And there have been some wahoo caught as well.

Sargassum weed has been abundant lately, and if the wind isn't too strong, it will generally bunch up on the edge of the rip line. When this occurs, fishing is usually outstanding. Small fish and crabs live within the weeds, which in turn attract predators, mainly dolphin and wahoo, or perhaps a triple tail. Marlin, tuna and sailfish will also cruise these areas.

This week, we fished mostly for sailfish, buying goggle eyes and blue runners, and flying the kite. While we caught several sailfish, the action has slowed from the previous week or so. We concentrated our efforts in 100 - 140 feet from Lost Tree to Juno Pier. During one drift, all our baits got attacked by a school of decent size kingfish. The action was fast just before Tuesday's mild cold front pushed through about noon. I don't know if we lost the school or they just turned off, but the action got quiet all of a sudden. That has pretty much been the story all week. Be there when the fish are hot and you'll have a great day. Miss them and go home skunked. That's fishing! We also caught a 15-pound dolphin that day as well.

Overall, fishing has basically been good. Snapper, grouper and cobia inshore and off the reefs, and some pelagics offshore. This week's weather looks great! Have fun!
