Offshore Delray Beach Fishing Report: The wahoo fishing has been phenomenal for Captain Chase of Native Fishing Charters in Delray, who has been coming back to the docks in Delray Beach with 20-50 lb wahoos on a daily basis. The edge of the Gulfstream Current scrapes the coastal areas of Delray and packs of hungry wahoo stage near the  dropoffs to feed around the full moon and new moon periods. Wahoo feeding tendencies are based on tidal flow, and the strong currents that result from these moon phases push bait off the shallow reefs to the dropoffs where the wahoo feed. Wahoo fishing in Delray Beach is best when the tide is at slack high, so plan your fishing trip accordingly. March is typically the best month of the year to consistently catch wahoo in Delray Beach.

Aside from the wahoo, there has been a consistent dolphin bite starting to form with the Spring season upon us. When the winds have been out of the Northeast, the mahi mahi have been moving within a mile of the beach off Delray. One of the best parts about dolphin fishing in Delray Beach is the fact that most of the fishing charter boats will be crowding in front of the inlets of Boca or Boynton, leaving Delray wide open to fish for dolphin all by yourself. The most effective baits for these dolphin have been ballyhoo or bonito strips trolled behind a bright colored lure in sunny conditions and a dark colored lure in cloudy or low light conditions. The dolphin have been feeding on huge schools of baby flying fish that have been migrating through the area this week. Most of the Delray Beach charter boats have been experiencing the best action for dolphin from 250-400ft depths of water.

Inshore Delray Beach Fishing Report: When the ocean has been too rough to go deep sea fishing offshore, the inshore fishing in Delray Beach has been phenomenal in between the cold fronts when the air temps are  in the 70’s or 80’s. Snook, tarpon, jack crevalle, barracuda, and snapper have been eating shrimp and baitfish around structures such as bridges, docks, and underwater rocks and debris. The inshore charter guides have been reporting excellent snakehead fishing in the Western canals of Delray Beach. The snakeheads have been biting artificial topwater lures cast near the banks of the Delray Beach canals. Expect the Delray Beach fishing reports to continue to improve as the water temps begin to heat up in April.
