INSHORE: Been a handful of pompano pushing around in the Loxahatchee River and in the ICW up towards Hobe Sound. Sheepshead are beginning to fill in in decent numbers around boat docks and bridges. Catch and release snook fishing remains pretty good, especially around the bridges at night. Shrimp jigs have been the ticket for the snook.
SURF/PIER: Spanish Mackerel action has been fair at the pier. Small metal casting jigs have been a good choice with the wind. Bluefish action has been a bit spotty, but a few days of north winds should help improve that. Pompano action has been better north of Jupiter Inlet this week. Strong east winds will make conditions tough for surf fishing early in the weekend.
