INSHORE: Tough inshore fishing overall this week. Snook season is almost here...the reports on them should increase over the next few weeks. The Loxahatchee River and northern ICW have been holding a fair number of jacks, a few snook, and a scattering of pompano. Still a few spotted seatrout and redfish around as well. Live shrimp is a great bait choice inshore right now. A goofy jig bounced along the bottom is also a good choice for mixed bag action. Tip the goofy jig with a small piece of FishBites for even more fish catching potential. Low light periods of the day remain the best bet. Look for the fish to bite best with moving water as well.
SURF/PIER: Pompano fishing remains hit or miss, with a few good catches coming in this week. Sandfeas, clams, and FishBites are the baits of choice for the pompano. Some good pompano reports north of Jupiter Inlet, with a few coming in along Juno Beach as well. Spanish Mackerel action is day to day at Peck's Lake. Spinner sharks are beginning to show in fair numbers along Singer Island. A few scattered reports of some snook along the beach and passing schools of tarpon. Good numbers of croakers in the trough on small pieces of shrimp.
