INSHORE- Schools of finger mullet have the inshore fishing pretty good right now, especially at night. Snook, tarpon, jacks, and even a few seatrout and redfish(depending on where you are) are all around the schools of mullet. The Hobe Sound Flats (ICW markers 40-46) are starting to hold a few more fish as the weather slowly starts to change, as are the flats around Munyon Island. Low light periods of the day, or nighttime, will still be producing the best action inshore. Look for the mullet schools to find the most consistent action. With a fair amount of rain in the forecast this weekend don't be surprised if the spillways open up and the snook bite goes off.
SURF/PIER- Snook, tarpon, jacks, sharks, and bluefish are following schools of mullet along the beach right now, with the best action on them early and late in the day. Look for mullet schools to be anywhere from Stuart to Palm Beach. Fishing a live mullet on the edge of the schools is a good way to trigger a bite. The Juno Beach Pier is still holding a fair number of snook. Blue runners and a few spanish mackerel are also biting at the pier. Starting to hear a few reports of pompano, with scattered catches coming in from Hobe Sound and farther north.
Good Luck this weekend!
