Hillsboro Inlet - Boca Raton | RJ Boyle of rjboylestudio.com
Out of Hillsboro Inlet not a huge amount to report as the wind begins to subside. We actually have a great window of weather Friday Saturday and Sunday and with all this east wind and rough conditions we should have epic snapper fishing on the reef in 70 to 90 feet. Yellow tails and Mutton snapper should be biting. A northern current is always best for the snappers. No current is usually no good and a south current is hit or miss.
We should also see some nice mahi-mahi and wahoo inshore between 100 and 200 feet of water . When we have these extended periods of rough weather the larger Pelagic’s have a tendency to push in near shore for a few days. Trolling planers for the wahoo with bonito strips will be the ticket and for the larger mahi mahi pull rigged ballyhoo and bonito strips with a small chugger head .
Don’t forget the First Wahoo tournament in the Bahamas starts Saturday. The Wahoo Mayham out of Bimini usually yields some of the biggest fish of the season. The boats that went over to Bimini yesterday got a severe ass kicking but The weather is subsiding and this weekends weather looks awesome.
There hasn’t been much fishing going on for the last week or so off of Miami because of the weather but the next few days look very promising. Light winds out of the north on Friday swinging around to the north east and east on Saturday and Sunday. Sail fishing should be improving, we’re going to have an incoming tide most of the day so water should be fairly clear up on the reef. Fishing on the wrecks and kingfishing should be improving as we move into the winter months. Some swordfish were caught before the winds picked up. This is typically a good time of the year for day dropping.
Tip for the week you can’t catch them off the couch!!!

Hey this is Greg Bogdan from permitted Sportfishing out of Sailfish Marina on Singer Island. Finally got a Day to get out the weather’s been pretty rough. Fishing around the inlet in Palm Beach was good for some big Jacks and a small permit using jigs. We fished a couple of the wrecks on the way out caught a few barracudas and a decent mutton snapper but we had a lot of cut off‘s by sharks the sharks have been pretty brutal here lately. We live baited offshore in 120 to 140 and caught a dolphin a couple king fish and jumped off of Sailfish all of that was in the afternoon when the wind died down a little bit hope for better fishing in the next couple days sounds like some good weather coming for the weekend. Should be a nice color change Offshore with all the rain we’ve had. I suspect dolphin fishing should be pretty good over the next couple days And with a nice color change there should be some sailfish biting sounds like a small cold front is on the way
Spanish Mackeral are biting good 1/2 mile off the beach on live pilchards. Nice mahis are still biting in on the reef from 60-120 ft of water under frigate birds. Small black fin tunas should bite good this month from 3-600 ft of water. Wish I had more for you but weather sucks.
