INSHORE- Snook fishing continues to improve, and will only improve as the weather warms. The bridges are holding a good number of snook on outgoing tide, and the Loxahatchee River has some nice fish laid up around seawalls and boat docks. The snook are also beginning to stack up good in the dock lights, especially in areas with good current. As is almost always the case, the snook fishing will be better at night; so be prepared to give up some sleep to track down the best linesider action. Jacks and ladyfish are still plentiful along the Hobe Sound flats; with a few trout and maybe even a redfish still in the mix as well. Area bridges are still holding a fair number of sheepshead, and occasional black drum.
SURF FISHING- Pompano action has been good this week. Holding bottom has been a little tough, but with a spider sinker and a little luck the pompano are around! Sandfleas, clams, and fishbites remain the top producing baits. The sharks are around still, so be sure to reel those pomps in quick! Scattered bluefish around still, along with scattered schools of spanish mackerel. Some nice croaker and whiting biting in the first trough on small pieces of cut shrimp. It's a little early, but a few snook are cruising the surf right now as well. Lots of good stuff going on, and should be a good weekend for some surf fishing!
