INSHORE- Still seeing lots of finger mullet inshore, and the predators are not far behind. Snook, tarpon, jacks, and even a few redfish are hanging around the Loxahatchee River and the Intracoastal Waterway(ICW). Look for the mullet to be the most active at night, and this is when the buffet line opens up. Areas with good current and ambush points are ideal starting points, but don't be afraid to follow along with schools of mullet that are getting harassed and blown up on. A live mullet fished on the edge of the school is a good bet, as is a fresh dead mullet fished underneath. Those into throwing lures will have good luck using flair hawk jigs, mullet like swim baits, and large swimming plugs(X-Raps and Windcheaters). Fish the plugs on the outside edge of any mullet schools, and always try to make the lure look like a injured bait that has been broken off from the school.
SURF/PIER- The surf fishing has been on fire this week! Lots of bluefish up and down the beach. Silver spoons, diamond jigs, and swimming plugs are all good choices for the blues; especially early in the morning. Later in the day (higher light periods) cut bait will be a better choice for the blues. No real hot spot for the bluefish, but the Jupiter Inlet and the Juno Beach Fishing Pier are great starting points to find them. Lots of jacks mixed in with the bluefish to keep things interesting. The spanish mackerel have been around the Juno Beach Pier in fair numbers this week. The "bobber rig" and a clark spoon remains the top choice for getting the spanish macs (and jacks, bluefish, ladyfish, and just about everything else) to bite. Pompano have bit on and off this week, with a few very good days of both good size and good numbers of pomps. Clams and sand fleas remain the top producers for the pompano. Sharks are showing up in pretty good numbers, as to be expected with all the fish around for them to feed on. Big news on the pier today was a good mutton snapper bite, with some good 20" plus fish coming over the rail! A few Redfish have also been caught all week long at the pier. Lots of goose surf action...go if you can!
