INSHORE- Snook season is back open, and early reports are that the fishing has been very productive. Look for the snook to bite well on the outgoing tide around area bridges, or almost anywhere you find schools of mullet. For best luck finding a slot size snook try throwing a flair hawk jig, big swim bait, or using a large live bait. Smaller lures and shrimp will get more bites, but tend to lead to a lot more smaller fish. Still hearing some decent mangrove snapper reports around the bridges. A small I've pilchard is an ideal bait for the mangroves.
SURF/PIER- Snook fishing remains good around the Juno Beach Pier, along the beach, and in the inlets. During low light periods of the day a swimming plug or medium size swim bait is a good choice, while live bait remains key later in the day for the snook. The first trickles of mullet have been coming down the beach, and should continue to improve as we move farther into the month. With the mullet will be plenty of snook, tarpon, jacks, sharks, and bluefish ready to smash a mullet style plug or live mullet fished on the edge of the school. Other action along the beach has remained spotty.
