INSHORE- Snook fishing remains the best bet inshore right now. The snook are in full spawning mode right now, so look for areas near the inlet to be your best bet. If fishing in the inlet itself is not your thing; look for bridges, boat docks, and seawalls near inlets to also be holding a good number of fish. Snapper fishing has been pretty good inshore, with a fair number of mangroves moving into their summertime hangouts. Live shrimp and small pilchards are great bait choices for the snapper. A handful of jacks and tarpon around inshore, but not in huge numbers.
SURF/PIER- Surf reports were a bit slim this week; largely due to less than ideal weather conditions and lots of seaweed. Catch and release snook fishing will be the best bet this weekend. If your fishing for the snook at night try a Flair Hawk jig or bigger swimbait (like a SpoolTek or Hogy Paddletail). During the day stick with the live baits for best chance at the snook. A big croaker or sand perch will be the best bet for the big snook, while pilchards and sardines are a good choice for catching numbers. The Juno Beach Pier snook bite seems to be getting better by the day. Tarpon have still been spotted cruising along the beach, along with some big jacks. The Jupiter Inlet has started to produce a few mangrove snapper on the jetty, along with good numbers of snook. Croaker and perch are biting fair in the first trough on small pieces of live shrimp.
