Off of Boston, skip jack and black fin tuna, along with dolphin, are being caught along the color changes in 500 to 800 feet of water. Trolling small tuna darts with a bonito strip has been productive for fish up to 15 pounds.

Live baiting with small blue runners or goggle eyes, trolling pink feathers or sea witches and drifting dead sardines have all been working. Bottom fishing off the Boynton Beach area has been producing a good mutton snapper and red grouper bite.

There have been nice runs of Spanish mackerel and bluefish along the beaches from Lake Worth to Boca Raton. Trolling spoons and either white or yellow feathers between 12 and 25 feet of water has been producing fish.

Along Sailfish Flats in Martin County there has been an excellent bone fish bite. Beach rigs using sand fleas or pompano jigs tipped with shrimp have been the call.

The black drum and sleepyhead bite is still good along the bridges along the St. Lucie and Indian Rivers. There have been good numbers of Cuber snapper caught along the docks and mangroves around Seawall's Point.

Anglers walking the beach and throwing a spoon are having fun working the schools of bluefish and Spanish mackerel that are moving through. That bite should see a nice uptick with the passing of the next, quite substantial, cold front.

Anglers working the rock piles, flats, bridges and docks in the Intracoastal Waterway from the Southern Boulevard Bridge down to the Boston Inlet are reporting catching redfish, sea trout, shook and some flounder. At the Santana Bridge fishing cut mullet on the bottom has been producing a nice bluefish bite.

Out on the lake there has been a wonderful spec bite the past week, with some guys even getting their limit. The far side of King's Bar towards Indian Prairie has been one of the hot spots recently.

Running up to the Home Sound area from Jupiter to avoid the sharks, Capt. Bill Taylor of Black Dog Fishing Charter has been getting good numbers of mangrove, yellowtail and a few short buttons in 40 to 60 feet of water using mostly thread fin herring and squid.

There is still a decent sailfish bite off of Jupiter and people fishing for them are also getting good numbers of dolphin as by catch. Working very specific depths from 100 to 115 feet, kings up to 15 pounds have been caught from the Boston Inlet and then following as they move south.

The sailfish bite is still holding steady off of the Boston area with many boats having several releases per trip. They are hitting goggle eyes, blue runners and pilchards on kites in 100 to 150 feet.

There have also been red grouper caught in the same depths using cut or whole squid on the bottom or slow pitching jigs. On the inside edge of the reefs off of Boston, lesser amber jacks, some keeper gray trigger fish, yellowtail and mangrove snapper are being caught.

Though the season is closed until Feb. 1, the bite for shook in the St. Lucie River has been excellent recently. Around the bridges spanning the St. Lucie and Indian Rivers there has been good action for black drum, pompano and bluefish.

In the Intracoastal Waterway in the channels a quarter mile north and south of the Boston Inlet, there has been an excellent bite for jack crevasse, lady fish, bluefish and some nice mangrove and mutton snapper. Also in the Ice, on the east side from the Santana Bridge up to the Shook Islands, there has been good action for sea trout and a few slot-size redfish.

Though the artificial bite has been tough, a Carolina rig with a strawberry color worm did produce a few fish. Yellow Jack Fishing in Key West is a rare occurrence for a variety of reasons.

Most Key West fishing charters do not go after this species due to their scarcity, although they are just a fun to land when hooked. Yellow Jack fishing in Key West can be done year round, but they are not very common or predictable.

This unpredictability is what puts them towards the bottom of the list on desirable types to go after while in Key West Fishing. The Yellow Jack seems to enjoy small cuts and channels.

They also favor underwater structures, coral heads, or sponge gardens. They respond well to any live bait fish, shrimp, jig or plugs.

If you decide to do some Yellow Jack Fishing in Key West, we suggest using a light spinning rig. A 10 -15 pound spin outfit will be a great match when you're in Key West fishing.

SIZE: From less than a foot in coastal shallows to an average of 1-3 pounds on deep reefs. Because most are hooked high in the water column, they usually make long, strong runs.

Yellowtail are masters at cutting lines on the edge of a drop-off, or fouling them on high reef growth. Yellowtails of decent size, however, are almost always caught in outside reef areas.

In many areas of the Bahamas and Caribbean, Yellowtail are caught by trolling a variety of lures, or by casting with small jigs, and even flies. RANGE: Yellowtail are common only in South Florida, the Bahamas and the Caribbean, although odd catches are made in other areas of the state, especially offshore Gulf reefs.

HABITAT: Small fish grow up around shallow coastal reefs and patches. Best fishing depths in most areas are 60 to about 120 feet, with nearly all the “Flags” coming from the deepest habitat.

Anglers going out from the Atlantic coast can find them far offshore on the eastern edge of the Gulf Stream and the Gulf coast fishermen hunt them down on oil rig trips off the Panhandle. Lady J Sport fishing in New Smyrna Beach is an excellent choice on the Atlantic side and Maximus can get you on to Yellow fin out of Destiny.
