INSHORE- Snook fishing has started to improve with the warming weather. The snook are biting live shrimp and shrimp imitating lures (DOA Shrimp, Savage Manic Shrimp, Vudu Shrimp, Etc) well around docklights. The shrimp jig bite remains hot around the bridges, especially on outgoing tide. During the day the snook remain locked pretty tight to seawalls and under boat docks. Sheepshead and black drum are still biting pretty good in the ICW. Fresh cut shrimp is the way to go. Hobe Sound Flats continue to produce some nice mixed bag action on ladyfish, jacks, and assorted other stuff.
SURF/PIER- Slower week along the beach this week. Bluefish action is till fair at night, with fresh cut bait being the way to go for them. Blacktip/Spinner sharks also biting pretty good at night in the right areas. Pompano action slowed this week; with the best reports seeming to come in from Hobe Sound and north. Sandfleas, Clams, FishBites, and FishGum remain the bait of choice for the pompano. Spanish Mackerel action has remained pretty solid this week as well.
