I finally got my trailer. My truck struggles a little bit towing the boat. If I keep it under 50mph it seems to work. Hopefully my truck can hold out till winter. Made it to Jupiter and launched at Burt Reynolds Park. Practiced getting it in and out of the ramp a few times since we were the only ones there. Practiced going in and out of the inlet a few times till the current picked up. Ran north and fished some promising spots but no luck. Ran up the Loxahatchee River to JDSP found some activity along the way but no fish. Felt bad for a captain of a sailboat who misjudged the bridge and hit a sign on the fenders which but a gash in the side of the hull and the sign now is at a 90 degree angle. Made it back to the ramp at 2pm. Hopefully we will catch some fish next trip.
if your new to Jupiter inlet, it gets nasty quick. I avoid outgoing tide with east swells. If you had to go in/out than stay on the south side of the inlet and go south for about 1/2 mile before going east. When returning same thing. Come in from the south part of jetty. On days when it’s outgoing tide near low tide with big swells, go to the inlet by foot and watch the waves form and how boats enter/exist. It will save your life.
