INSHORE: Catch and release snook fishing remains good at night around the bridges. Look for the outgoing tide to produce the best, and don't shy away from the big baits. The snook are hungry and they will chase down a good size meal this time of year. Mangrove snapper action inshore has improved. The mangroves will also bite best at night, and the bridges again are e a good area to look for them. Live shrimp and small live pilchards are good mangrove snapper bait choices. A few big jacks cruising the Loxahatchee River and a few small tarpon hanging around dock lights in the Lake Worth Lagoon and ICW.
SURF/PIER: The snook showed up really good along the beach this week, and have really fired off early in the morning. Small pilchards seem to be what they are chasing down, so small swimming plugs and soft plastics are a good way to go. The best action seems to be right as the sun comes up, and will continue for about a half an hour. The sand perch and a few croaker are biting in the first trough. Small pieces of shrimp is the way to go for them. Other surf action remains spotty at best.
