INSHORE- Good catch and release snook fishing right now in the Intracoastal and Loxahatchee river. Look for the snook to actively feed around bridge fenders and dock lights at night on an outgoing tide, and also along seawalls early in the morning. Mangrove snapper, including some really nice ones, are biting around the bridges at night on small live pilchards and shrimp. Still seeing a decent number of sheepshead and occasional black drum in the ICW around the bridges. The Loxahatchee river has a few tarpon rolling around early in the morning.
SURF/PIER- Great time of year to try and catch a big snook along the beach right now. The snook are feeding well early in the morning, and are willing to bite a large assortment of lures. The Spooltek has been the lure of choice for some monster snook early in the morning at the Juno Beach Pier this week. The Juno Beach Pier has also been catching a fair number of bonita, jacks, and stray kingfish or two. Some tarpon schools are making their way along the beach, and are up rolling mainly early in the morning. A live sardine, thread fin, or crab is a great choice to toss in front of a rolling tarpon. Hearing a few reports of some spanish mackerel on the beach north of Jupiter Inlet.
SHOP UPDATE- Lots of good stuff going on in the new shop. We have some new stuff in, new stuff on the way, and more cool stuff in the works. The bait freezers are full for the holiday weekend, and with any luck the live shrimp situation will improve over the next few days.
