OFFSHORE- Should be a good dolphin bite offshore following the storm. Key will be finding clean water and floating debris. The dolphin (And possibly wahoo) will not be far away. If the water clears up in 200-400', expect the blackfin tuna to be around. No word on bottom fishing, but the storm could also generate a good snapper bite.
INSHORE- Inshore water is on the dirty side, and that's going to make things a bit tough. Look for the mullet schools and the snook should still be around. Could also have the mangrove, and possibly a few muttons snapper fired up around the bridges.
SURF/PIER- The Juno Beach Pier is scheduled to reopen on Sunday (October 9th). The surf has calmed down nicely, but the water is pretty dirty. Maybe a few fish around in it, but the key will be finding some cleaner water. As the water improves we should have a good amount of fish around. About time for the first good push of bluefish to move in. Has been a few pompano around, and if conditions improve slightly...they'll be hungry!
