INSHORE: Inshore reports were a bit slim this week. Snook fishing remains fair for those really putting the time in. The bridges are producing some good fish at night on flair hawks and shrimp jigs. Both incoming and outgoing tide seem to be producing some snook. During the day the snook remain locked in tight along seawalls and boat docks looking for springtime silver mullet headed back north. Also cruising the seawalls will be some large jacks. Tarpon are still hanging around Palm Beach Inlet. Other inshore action remains a bit spotty.
SURF/PIER: Large swells had the beach (and even the Juno Beach Pier) pretty much entirely shut down from fishing. A few pompano were caught Wednesday afternoon. A few bluefish were caught on the pier using cut bait as well. Looks like conditions should be a little better this weekend for better fishing. Water clarity has looked surprisingly good, so should it become fishable we should be in for a good pompano bite. Still a good number of blacktop sharks around as well.
