INSHORE- Snook fishing remains pretty good inshore right now. The mullet are around, but not in huge huge numbers. This can actually make the fishing a little better. The snook are keyed in on mullet, and without a trillion around...makes it a little easier for them to find your bait or lure. Try fishing a moving tide at dawn/dusk/or night for best luck on the snook. The bridges have had a good number of snook, and are always a good starting spot in the hunt. Mixed in with the snook should be a few tarpon and some jacks. Other inshore action remains a bit slow. Still a few mangrove snaper hanging around inshore, along with some decent sandperch reports in the ICW.
SURF/PIER- The surf went pretty quiet this week overall. The mullet largely slipped to the south of us; and took most of the fish with them. The Juno Beach Pier had a handful of kingfish around; as well as a few slot size snook. Best action on the kings and snook will be early morning and late afternoon. The pompano bite slowed this week, but still a decent number of them around. The pompano overall seem to be on the small side. Takes on average 10 or 12 little ones to finally catch a keeper. It looks like we get some Northeast wind in the forecast next week...that should really help get the surf fishing going!
