INSHORE- Snook fishing improved this week with nice warm weather. The snook are keyed in on springtime mullet currently. Live mullet fished along seawalls and under boat docks are a good bet during the day; while a flair hawk or big swimbait is a good choice at night. The first part of the outgoing tide has been best for the snook as of late. Mixed in with the snook have been a fair number of jacks; including a few real nice ones. Live mullet or noisy topwaters are the way to go for the jacks as well. Sandperch are biting very well in the ICW right now on small pieces of shrimp. Still a few sheepshead hanging around the bridges, with a few mangrove snapper beginning to move in as well.
SURF/PIER- Pompano reports were very good this week along the beach. Decent pompano catches coming from just north of the Juno Beach Pier all the way up to Hobe Sound. Sandfleas, clams, and FIshBites are all producing good numbers of pompano. Best bite will be lowlight periods of the day and also at the end of the hightide. The Juno Beach Pier has had a very good croaker bite this week, with fresh shrimp being the bait of choice. The Jupiter Inlet has been hot this week with a solid pompano bite on Doc's Goofy Jigs, as well as a few snook beginning to show up. The snook were quick to jump on freelined live croakers.
