10.31.14 Fishing Report
For the thrill of Halloween weekend, it seems the fishing will be facing a trick instead of a treat. Not just one, but two cold fronts will affect our fishing forecast. The first cold front is moving in on Friday (Halloween) night and then a second on Saturday, with strong winds making the ocean rough for anglers.
The ocean will be very rough this weekend, but if you are able to sneak through the winds, you may scout a sailfish as the rough conditions are perfect for them and will most likely see dolphin as well. Cobia made a nice display this past week along the edge and around wrecks. Snapper fishing has remained very good out of Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlets too.
The last school of the mullet run is still swimming around as the snook fishing remains fair. The bridges with good current have been doing very well for fishing spots and that is where you can find the snook. As the mullet are going back to their fall/winter homes, try fishing with live shrimp, which is great bait for a nice mixed bag of species along the flats. The beach still has a lot of Pompano and Spanish mackerel action especially early in the day. Some fisherman are hooking up a few redfish as well as bluefish.
*Remember the ocean will be rough so be careful and do not push the limits of what your boat can comfortably handle.
Happy Halloween South Florida!
