Jupiter & Palm Beach Offshore Saltwater Fishing Report

Capt. Rob Mazzei
February 7, 2008
Jupiter - Saltwater Fishing Report

Warm weather cools Sailfish bite in West Palm Beach and Jupiter!

Unseasonably warm weather, attributed to southerly winds have had a negative impact on Sail fishing this season. Although we catch Sailfish all year long, winter is considered peak season. Last year we experienced nearly identical weather pattern and our "Sail bite" never lived up to our expectations.

There have been several days we encountered up to 10 Sailfish bites and had multiple hook ups, so one never knows what to expect offshore Palm Beach.

Do not be discouraged, south winds should push the Gulf Stream closer and with it come the Dolphin. Many of the largest fish caught come in the early Springtime. Last year schools of Spanish Sardines came in early as well, a live well full of Sardines will boost any fisherman's confidence.

Several King Mackerel to 50lbs. have been caught recently by some of the local boats drifting dead baits along the reef. We caught a few over the last week, but no big "smokers" for us.

Cobia have been spotted cruising the beach, sometimes they can be found near the Juno Beach Pier, other times they can be located off Blowing Rock Preserve.

When you least expect it, expect schools of big Jack Crevalles to join the party. Not considered a "Glamour species" the are a fine sport fish. They are aggressive and fight incredibly strong. If your fish finder marks blobs of red half way to the bottle, most likely it's the jacks. We'll drop and 1.5 ounce buck tail jig to probe the water column.

Snook season is now open, but we have not tried for them.
