Things To Do in Jupiter – 5 Fun Places for Fishing
From the shore, from a kayak, from a boat, on the banks of the Loxahatchee River – take your pick of scenic, relaxing ways to catch the big one north Palm Beach County.
Help Me Out, Dad!
This dad and his daughter were hoping to hook a snapper, snook and tarpon the fishing bridge under the shadow of U.S. 1.
Bait fishing is also popular on the 225-long aluminum pier built by the town for about $1.1 million about five years ago.
Most folks like to fish later in the day when the boat traffic slows and the shadows get longer.
Don’t forget the free parking in the nearby parking lot.
Admission is free.
Fishin’ on the Wild & Scenic Loxahatchee River
Largemouth bass, snook, bluegill and more are common on the Wild & Scenic Loxahatchee River.
Some folks have specially equipped watercraft.
Others just grab a pole and try their luck.
Either way, expect to see wildlife as you float under the shade of towering cypress trees when you rent a kayak or canoe from Jupiter Outdoor Center.
Rather pedal than paddle?
Sure. JOC rents bicycles for the miles and miles of shady paths in Riverbend Park.
Best View In Town!
With the historic Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse in the distance, boaters drifting by and tropical birds swooping overhead, these pals said it was a little tough keeping their minds on fishin’.
But they must have been doing something right, because they showed off two big yellowtail snappers in their cooler.
While the fishin’ is fun from this spot on Sawfish Bay Park, everybody has to be careful.
Kayakers and stand-up paddle boarders launch nearby. And sometime boaters come pretty close.
Parking is free. So is admission. And the town recently installed new public rest rooms. There’s a picnic table under a shaded gazebo.
Lookin’ For that Selfie Shot?
Cobia, king fish, shark, bluefish, pompano — the fun fish like to hang out around the 1,000-foot long Juno Beach Pier, just south of Marcinski Road.
There’s a shop at the foot of the pier to buy bait, fishing gear and snacks. Fishing admission is $4 for adults and $2 for kids.
Wanna just take a stroll and watch the sunset? Charge is just $1 at the pier operated by the Loggerhead Marinelife Center.
Here’s a local tidbit: The pier is a fantastic place to watch rocket launches from Cape Canaveral.
Parking is free.
