Jupiter Fishing

For anglers that don't appreciate having to forfeit a chunk of their fishing time to reaching the dormant hotspots stationed miles away from the shore, the waterways of Jupiter pose a revered alternative. The mangrove-lined backwaters of Loxahatchee river and the Jupiter Inlet provide an ideal sanctuary for a star-studded variety of inshore game fish, including the likes of Snook, Speckled Sea Trout, Jacks, Redfish, Pompano as well as seasonal Tarpon. Both northern and southern jetties of the Inlet have tested equally profuse with massive schools of Snook and Reds, large enough for Jupiter to now traditionally be labelled the 'Snook Capital of the World'. The lavish inshore fishery accounts for only half of the story though, thanks to the city's pitch-perfect positioning along the Atlantic coast. The Gulf Stream happens to be nearing its closest point of land right around the Palm Beach and Jupiter area, bringing all of those coveted reef and deep sea predators to you instead of the other way around. Unlike the majority of Florida's celebrated fishing grounds, here you'll find yourself catching Kingfish, Snapper, Grouper, Barracuda, Wahoo and Cobia only a few miles offshore! Just a bit further from the Inlet lies the notorious 'Sailfish Alley' as well, teeming with heavy-duty pelagics such as Marlin, Sailfish, Swordfish, Yellowfin Tuna and more.
