INSHORE- Lots of finger mullet inshore still, and the snook and tarpon are still with them. As usual, low light periods or nighttime will be the prime time to fish around the mullet schools. Fishing in the middle of big mullet schools can be very frustrating; sometimes you have to sit back and just enjoy the show , as it will begin to taper down before too long. The flats around Hobe Sound are starting to hold some fish again, as are the flats around Munyon Island. Finger mullet will be a good bait for flats fishing right now, but don't overlook live shrimp as a great bait option as well. THe fish can only eat so many mullet before they start thinking, "okay, I think I'd like a change!"
SURF/PIER- Lots of action along the beach right now! The mullet schools are around, and the tarpon and snook have not fully left yet, although the bluefish have shown up in force so the snook will be packing it up before too long. Bluefish action is very good, and will only continue to improve with each front. Silver spoons, popping plugs, and cut bait are all great bait choices for the bluefish. Mixed in with the bluefish will be jacks and some monster ladyfish. The sharks (mainly blacktips and spinners) are beginning to show up with all the good food around. Pompano fishing is starting to fire up as well. Lots of small pompano around, with some nice keepers mixed in. Fishbites, sandfleas, and clams are all good bait choices for the pompano; as are Doc's Goofy Jigs, especially off of Juno Beach pier.
