The Sun, Moon, tides, and weather all influence fish activity. For example, fish tend to feed more at sunrise and sunset, and also during a full moon (when tides are higher than average).
(But even during stormy periods, the fish aren’t going to give up feeding. When the breeze is from a westerly quarter rather than from the north or east.
It should come as no surprise that many Almanac readers love to fish. “The best way to fish in South Texas with chicken liver is to let it sit a while in the good Texas sun, then sprinkle a little garlic powder and a little chili powder on it.
“A wonderful bait I have found is hot dogs with chicken meat. Cut them in desired pieces and set in the sun to ‘dry up’.
You can put what you don’t use in the freezer with a few catalpa tree leaves. “To find the big cats, it would help out if you knew the underwater structure of the pond, river or lake.
A true hint in catfishing is never to use any type of scents (Cologne, powders, perfume, etc.) Don’t handle cigarettes or any type of tobacco products without washing your hands before applying baits, hooks, sinkers, new line, etc.
“The absolute best way I know to keep your liver on your hook while fishing is: Buy 1 or 2 old plastic ice trays. Place the hook and liver into the ice tray and let it freeze throughout the night before you go fishing.
“The best bait I have used here in Bradenton, Fla. Is fresh mullet that has never been frozen. The chlorine in the water stays and will kill your bait.
Freeze water bottles then gently place them in the bucket. That leaves a fairly narrow window of opportunity for some of the area's biggest game fish such as sailfish and dolphin (mahi-mahi).

Off Jupiter there is still a good bottom bite for mutton, yellowtail and mangrove snapper. That said, they have been catching some king mackerel on drifted dead sardines and trolled sea witches with a bonito strip on a size four planer.
Using kites and live goggle eyes or small blue runners, they are being caught from Boca Raton to Lake Worth in 120 to 170 feet of water. Porgies, trigger fish and blue runners are all hitting cut squid fished on bottom rigs in 40 to 70 feet of water.
Again, like last week, sharks remain a nuisance in the south county area in depths from 35 out to 300 feet. Anglers working the Stuart Causeway are catching good numbers of pompano.
At the St. Lucie Inlet there has been good action on shook and pompano are being caught on the nearby flats. Along the beaches in Jupiter, the fishing has been good for jack crevasse, lady fish, pompano, bluefish and a few Spanish mackerel.
Live shrimp, Doc’s Goofy Jigs and spoons for the bluefish and Spanish mackerel are working well. Anglers using Gulf stream Red Tail Hawks and Papal lures and working the shadow lines are having good luck.
At the Boston Inlet, anglers are getting shook, jack crevasse and sleepyhead off the north jetty and along the seawalls. They were working the pass at King’s Bar and several big fish including an eight-pound, six-ounce bunker.
Anglers flipping’ skinny dippers and rubber worms over the eel grass are having good luck. Large mouth bass are being caught along the 441 canal from Boynton Beach north to Lake Worth on baby Zara Spooks.

Try shrimping, lobstering, scalloping, crabbing, gigging, bait cast netting, or even spearfishing to really test your skills.
When most of us think about fishing, we think about rods, reels, hooks, line and sinkers. But if you really want to get serious about capturing dinner and having fun, add dip nets, cast nets, spears, gigs, tongs and traps to the list of saltwater weapons.
