INSHORE- Some pretty good reports this week on the inshore side of things. The Munyon Island flats have been holding snook, jacks, ladyfish, and a few others. A small swimming plug (like a Yo-Zuri Crystal Minnow) is a solid lure choice right now. The snook are stacking up on docklights in good number, and are keying in on shrimp. Fish moving water (incoming or outgoing tide) with live shrimp, shrimp imitating lures, or small swimming plugs for fast action on the snook. The Hobe Sound flats are coming to life with cooling water temps. Snook, jacks, pompano, ladyfish, bluefish, and others are all hanging out in fair numbers up that way.
SURF/PIER- Pompano action remains steady along the beach and at the Juno Beach Pier. Along the beach the bait fishermen are doing best using sandfleas, clams, and FishBites. Anglers on the pier are finding the best action throwing Doc’s Goofy Jigs in bright colors. Early morning and late afternoon have been producing the best action on the pompano. Bluefish action has been steadily improving as well, and should continue to improve as we see some more cold fronts push through. Spanish Mackerel are increasing in numbers at the Juno Beach Pier. Small clark spoons, gotcha lures, and crappie jigs are the best lure choices for the Mackerel. A handful of kingfish are hanging around at the Juno Beach Pier. Good numbers of blacktip sharks around as well. Lots of fun to catch them from the beach on light tackle. Fresh chunks of bait at night is the way to go for the sharks.
