INSHORE- Snook fishing remains fair around the bridges and seawalls, but it has definitely slowed down. Take some time to seek out the best looking areas and fish slowly and patiently for best results. A Zara Spook walked along seawalls at dawn or dusk is a good bet for explosive topwater action, and a live mullet freelanced along the same seawall will not go unnoticed for too long, Those looking for rod bending fun will be very happy to hear that the jacks haver invaded the Loxahatchee River in good numbers. Ladyfish have also began to take up their winter homes in the usual spots. No spotted seatrout reports yet...but that may change this weekend with the first little front of the year.
SURF/PIER- Not a hugely exciting week along the surf this week; but a few fish have been around. Smaller panfish (croaker, whiting, sand perch) have been biting in the first trough on cut shrimp. The bluefish are biting cut bait best at night. A handful of pompano are being caught on sand fleas; with the best action coming north of Jupiter Inlet. Look for all surf action to improve over the weekend with the slight change in weather.
