Welcome to the June fishing report for Palm Beach, Singer Island and Jupiter Florida. Fishing will be awesome this month with many different opportunities to land Quality fish. You will start to see more Bonita invading us on there migration. There great for action but most fishermen try to stay away from them do to there poor table fare. We at Reel Intense fishing Charters see it as a gift. We understand that when the Bonita are around there’s monsters that are feeding on them. One option is to catch a bonehead and live rig him on a 50lb class reel and slow troll them behind the boat. If you ever wanted to land a Wahoo over 50lb or maybe a Blue Marlin, this is your time. Step it up and troll 2 live Bones rigged through the eyes with a strong hook. Don’t forget the wire leader. Tight lines!
For the deep fishermen…. The bite out 20 miles will be worth doing. Making a day of trolling then deep dropping for Swordfish will be realistic do to the calmer seas. Going deep can feel Sir-real. Not seeing another boat for hours can make for some kon-tiki type of boating. There has been some big Swordfish taken down south last few months and there will be some nice one out front of Palm Beach Inlet. If your not Swordfishing because you don’t have the skills, well… get the Skills. It’s not as hard as you think. You just need the right tools… check out YouTube for any and all bait rigging and tactic. One other thing… bring a few gaffs that can handle the job. You don’t know if the monster will bite that day, so be prepared. We use gaffs from #Bradsbluewatergaffs
For the inshore people. Expect good Snook, Tarpon, Jacks and Permit around the inlets and beach. Drifting live Sardines and other scale baits will do the trick. Light leaders and small hooks will fool the big ones. I use a Daiwa saltist 8000 on a medium Saltist jigging rod.. it’s deadly to fish! Well there you have it… don’t forget to keep a eye on the afternoon weather. It can get crazy at times. Good luck again!
