INSHORE- Snook reports are staring to trickle in as anglers start to do a little scouting for snook season (Season opens 2/1 for Atlantic coast). Look for the snook to be laid up around boat docks, dark mudflats, and mangroves; especially those areas close to deeper water. The bridges are still producing a fair number of snook at night, especially on outgoing tide. Live shrimp, shrimp jigs, DOA Shrimp, and smaller swimbaits are all good choices for the snook right now. Inshore action around the grassflats was a little quiet this week, but those spending some time out there have found a few fish. JAcks, ladyfish, and a few smaller trout have made up the bulk of the reports coming in.
SURF/PIER- Surf fishing was great early in the week for a wide variety of species; but, unfortunately has tapered off as the week has went on. Early in the week spanish mackerel invaded the Juno Beach pier in great numbers. Crappie jigs, glass minnow jigs, boober rig with clark spoon, and gotchas all were producing good numbers of macs this week. Bluefish remained in the mix in good numbers this week as well at the pier and Jupiter Inlet. Silver spoons and cut bait seemed to be producing the best numbers of blues this week. Pompano were caught in fair numbers at Loggerhead for a few days this week. Spinner sharks are beginning to show up in good numbers along the beach as well right now. Lots of good stuff going on in the surf right now!
