INSHORE- Snook fishing remains the best bet inshore right now. Action has been good on them in all the usual spots. The bridges, spillways, inlets, ICW, and river have all had good snook fishing under the right conditions. As usual the snook fishing will be best at night or during lowlight periods of the day. Moving water (generally outgoing tide) is also essential in getting the snook to bite. Still a good number of mullet around and that is what the snook are keyed in on right now. Tarpon and jacks will also be ion those same spots with the snook. As the water begins to cool down just a bit look for the flats in Hobe Sound to start to come alive with more species and fish activity.
SURF/PIER- Action remains good overall along the beach; but not quite as good as it was last week. The Juno Beach Pier snook bite has remained pretty strong. Still a good number of sabiki baits around, along with good pods of mullet. Snook bite has been best on live baits, but a swimming plug (X-Rap or Yo-Zuri Longcast) has also been getting a few bites early and late. The mullet are still around, although the pods are not as consistent. Tarpon and sharks are the main big predators in with the mullet now. The jacks and early season bluefish are also around in good numbers when you find the mullet. Early season pompano fishing has been good. Fish Gum and Sandfleas have both been great choices for the pompano. Spanish Mackerel action has been good as well. Nice looking conditions again this week...should be a good weekend to give it a try!
