INSHORE- Snook season is back open, and the reports are starting to come back in. The flair hawk bite has been good at night around the bridges, especially on an outgoing tide. (Expecting an order of First Light Jig Snook Jigs into the shop almost any day...opening of season put a hurting on the jig wall). Juno Bait Shrimp Tails have also been a solid choice for the snook. Reports around Hobe Sound (Mile Marker 40-44) remain pretty good for mixed bag action of ladyfish, jacks, snook, and occasional pompano. Pompano reports in the Loxahatchee River have fallen way off over the past week. Should be some sheepshead in Palm Beach inlet willing to eat a live shrimp on the bottom.
SURF/PIER- Surf fishing really fired up last weekend and early into the week, but slowed a bit as the week went on. Last week saw a solid push of bluefish, jacks, and spinner sharks for those into catching hard fighting fish on lighter tackle and artificial lures. GT Ice Creams, diamond jigs, and heavy spoons have all been great lure choices. Spanish Mackerel action has been fair at Peck's Lake, but not lights out like it can be. Pompano reports were very good up and down the line last weekend, but have slowed as the week went on. Best pompano reports now are coming from north of Jupiter Inlet again, with clams being the top producing bait of choice. As mentioned a bit earlier, the spinner sharks are here in solid numbers right now. Best action for them will be early morning and late afternoon for those trying to catch one on a lure, while bait fishing is best at night for the sharks.
