INSHORE- Snook action is very good, and should only get better as the fish start to really break out of their winter funk. All the usual snook spots are really starting to fire up. The flats around Munyan Island and MaCarthur State Park have been producing good numbers of snook, jacks, and even a few redfish and tarpon. Live shrimp, DOA Shrimp, and Vudu Shrimp are all good choices for working the flats these days. Early in the morning and late in the afternoon the fish will also fire up on topwater plugs. Starting to hear some mangrove snapper reports inshore as well, which means springtime is upon us!
SURF/PIER- Bluefish have re-invaded the surf in big numbers over the past week (Easter weekend often marks the tail end of the bluefish in south Florida, and can bring some of the biggest blues of the season as well). Cut bait on a bottom rig or a large silver spoon is a good choice for the bluefish. A loud noisy popping plug will also get the blues attention! Pompano action remains strong, with fish biting clams and sand fleas very well early and late in the day. Plenty of sharks around if your looking for something bigger to pull on.
BAIT REPORT- Good numbers of small blue runners around the rock piles, and fairly willing to bite larger sabiki rigs. Scattered reports of some greenies(threadfins) showing up along the beach and around Juno Beach Pier this week.
SHOP UPDATE- Hope everyone has a great Easter Weekend! We will be open 6AM-12PM on Easter Sunday...and then off to track down some Easter Eggs!

Freight Train Fishing Update- It was a busy week fishing wise for us, and we were lucky enough to get out quite a bit. Had some good snapper fishing, caught some nice cobia (Pictured), and a mixed bag of stuff fishing inshore this week. Sorry for the quick report, trying to send it in from the water...uh oh FISH ON!
