    There are some perfect sized blue runners at the bridge rubble north of the Jupiter inlet. Number 8 sabikis are working best. I heard a report back at the marina on Thursday that someone got a few gogs there also. Go get em!

    Small, medium and large mullet by sandsprit. Saw 2 schools, one small one and one with over 100 fish. Has to be dark, or they'll go deep and you won't spot them.

    Plenty of 4-8" blue runners south of the boynton inlet/in front of the martini glass the last few days. 10 to 16 feet of water, not hard to spot. Haven't been able to find any other type bait.

    Cmart, i think i was using size 6 sabikis, but it could have easily been 8 or 10. I just grab whatever hooks look good without checking size. I was not chumming them up. I recently got a hobie pro angler kayak so I've been testing that out offshore - to get the runners i've just been towing the sabiki behind the yak until I hit a pod of them. Usually it hasn't taken more than five minutes to find them. I was most recently out on Sunday - found them again in between 10-16' directly in front of the martini glass.

    Went out of SLI this morning. All you can catch 5"-7" blue runners at the first red buoy (#2) directly east of the inlet. The drift was north to south this morning, so we stayed on the south side of the buoy. Drop sabiki fairly (used #6 red) close to buoy and bounce it off the bottom until you feel them on. Reel in slowly for multiple hook ups. I got a full stringer of 6 this morning (caught 15 in about 4 drops), don't ask if I caught anything else...

    Unlike Long, we could not find bait one this morning. Only Hornbellies at Shrimpers. While trolling the spread back north from down south we did see tons of bait at the Hode Sound Wreck which looked like greenies.

    Anybody got a bait report from this weekend? Greenies or cigars?
  • NBIJOHNNBIJOHN Posts: 58 Deckhand
    Found runners south of Lake Worth inlet in about 30 ft. about halfway to Breakers. Spread out in a number of spots. Not a killing but good bait size. Large shibiki. Stopped on marks and picked up some at each spot.
