The weather may have been bad today but we have a great weekend forecast ahead of us. Offshore fishing has still been great with big Mahi being reported every couple of days. The bite has seemed to be north up by Ft. Pierce and South closer to Jupiter. Most Mahi caught this weekend were reported between 250-300ft. The Sailfish bite however has been fantastic out of Stuart, it seems like live bait has been the most productive for the Sails. Mutton fishing in 60-80ft in Stuart has also been very productive. Frozen boxes of Spanish Sardines have been hard to come by, but we have Cigar minnows in stock that will get the job done.
The Inshore Snook fishing in Stuart has been on fire. Fishing the docks with Live Pilchards is your best bet on catching numbers, If you’re going after quality there have been plenty of schools of Mullet as the spring mullet run has started. Use the larger Mullet along the seawalls and you’ll be sure to hook into a large over slot. There have been big Schools of large Jacks on Sailfish Flats and off the beach as well.
South to southwest flow will dominate through Saturday with scattered lightning storms pushing offshore, with some strong to severe storms possible today and again tomorrow afternoon. A cold front will cross the local Atlantic waters Sunday followed by high pressure building south over the area.
