Dolphin and blackfin tuna have been the most common catches this week, with the usual trolling with ballyhoo, bonita strips, and squid between 500’ and 1000’ around large weedlines for your best chance at putting some mahi filets on the table. Trolling with small feathers around 300’ during cooler times of the day like morning and late afternoon is your best chance at tuna. As usual, kingfish are scattered around the 120’ ledge. Juno Bait has had reports of a few yellowtail snapper showing up as well.

 

The mullet run has definitely been churning up waters from Hobe Sound to Palm Beach Inlet, with large tarpon, snook, and jacks putting on a show for anglers and beachgoers alike. Now that it’s

Jupiter’s beloved local landmark, the Jupiter Lighthouse, was authorized by Congress to be built in 1853, and construction of the tower was completed in May of 1860, with the official lighting commenced on July 10th, 1860. From 1860 to 1939, more than 70 different keepers maintained this 108-foot lighthouse, until the civilian lighthouse service merged with the United States Coast Guard in 1939. Military personnel remained its keepers until it was automated in 1987. The Jupiter Lighthouse remains a treasured local landmark and an active Aid to Navigation, with 1 of only 13 active 1st Order Fresnel lenses in the entire United States!

Jonathan Dickinson State Park is a historic site located in Martin County between Hobe Sound and Tequesta, and is the largest state park in southeast Florida. The park includes the Elsa Kimbell Environmental Education and Research Center and a variety of natural habitats. The Loxahatchee River, which runs through the park, was the first river in Florida designated as a National Wild and Scenic River.
