May keeps on moving along and summer has arrived, bring the heat and fun in the sun. Kids are out of school and the fish are active and ready to chew.
Jupiter is providing great silver king action, beaches,inlets and ICW all producing great fishing. The tarpon on the beach are ranging in size from 40 to 90 pounds. Live baits and doa bait busters and terror eyes in rootbeer entice strikes. The key is fishing early morning and stealth, be very quiet. The fish are schooled up and can be seen near the shorelines rolling in the surface. The juvenile tarpon in the inter coastal water ways are very active to top water plugs and doa 4 jerk baits early morning and late evening, rolling fish help anglers pinpoint casting direction.
Snook anglers this is the time, the snook are in the inlets and along the beaches. Live bait anglers greenies work great, but doa artificial lures work wonders, as they stand out and offer a different silhouette. The 4 inch doa cal jerk and doa 4 inch paddle tail in gold and glow and holographic grab the linesiders attention. Docks and seawalls holding fish as well, top water plugs work early morning and late afternoon. The average size of the snook has been 5 to 25 pounds. Fly anglers sight fishing for the snook along the beach and inside the inlets will get your heart pumping, deceivers clousers and gurglers in white, green and gold great colors to let fly.
Grass flats are producing plenty of trout action using live baits and popping corks with artificial lures. Target depths from 2 to 5 feet, looking for any signs of bait especially glass minnow in the area. Mixed in with the trout are drum , jacks, snapper and a few flounder.
The warm weather and rain we have received has the peacock bass going crazy. The peacocks are very aggressive towards flies, artificial lures and live baits around there beds. and worked along the surface creating noise. At times it seems the faster you work the fly or artificial lure the more aggressive the peacock bass become. Sight fishing for these beauties is a blast and live baiting as well puts and smile on the anglers face once the drag starts screaming.
