INSHORE: Snook fishing continues to improve as the fish start to move towards the inlets. The bridges at night are best, and flair hawk jigs and big swimsuits are the way to go. The outgoing tides have been best, but certain areas are also producing well on incoming tide. The snook are also showing up in Jupiter Inlet in fair numbers already. The mangrove snapper are starting to bite a little bit inshore. The key to the mangrove snapper is finding areas that have small live pilchards around. Find the pilchards and the snapper can't be too far behind. The small resident tarpon have been very active up the Loxahatchee River lately, especially early in the morning.
SURF/PIER: Pompano fishing continues to stay pretty good, especially north of Jupiter Inlet. Sandfleas, clams, and fishbites are the bait of choice for the pompano. Early morning and late afternoon will be the best time to try and track down a few pompano. Snook fishing at the Juno Beach Pier has been very good as of late. Dead crushed sardines fished on the bottom has been the ticket for the most snook bites. Live shrimp has also proved effective when the dead sardines aren't getting the bites. Some big schools of jack coming through, as well as some tarpon at the pier. Spanish mackerel schools have also been in and out at the pier. Overall the fishing has been pretty productive.
