Welcome to the December Coastal Angler Fishing forecast for the waters off Palm Beach to Jupiter. We welcome December for its cooler weather and its migration of winter pelagic fish and I'm not the only one , there is a flood of sport fishing boats from the north here for the same reason. Sailfishing will be at its peak along with some nice Dolphin action. Most of the action will be in depths of water from 100 to 200 feet. That's an easy ride on rough days. There will be a lot of guys kite fishing.. So keep a heads up not to run over any kite lines. Winter cold fronts are great for pushing all kinds of sport fish into the area, so don't be surprised if you land a nice Wahoo or even a Blue....You just never know!
If your an inshore guy, try your luck on the beach. Spanish Mackerel will be invading after a good wind-event. Also Jacks will be around the inlets looking for something to eat. Light tackle is the way to go with these drag pullers. Keep a eye on the weather, the key to great fishing in December are cold fronts. Good luck and tight lines!
