INSHORE- Snook fishing prior to the little cold snap was very good. A quick warm-up should have them biting good again in short order. The Flair Hawk bite remains fair to good around the bridges, especially on an outgoing tide. Docklight action is also very very good for catching numbers of snook right now. Small white jigs and shrimp imitating lures are excellent choices for fishing snook around docklights. Pompano fishing has been good inshore in the Stuart area, but slow in the local Juno/Jupiter area for the most part. Fair number of jacks pushing around in the Loxahatchee River and ICW right now. Hobe Sound Flats continue to produce mixed bag action on ladyfish, jacks, occasional trout or redfish, snook, sheepshead, and a few others.
SURF/PIER- Reports for the first part of the week were well...weak. However, at time of writing the surf south of Jupiter Inlet has started to come alive. Solid reports of Bluefish coming in from the Juno Beach Pier currently. LOTS of blacktip sharks mixed in with the bluefish as well. Pompano reports have also been on the rise with a few fish being caught south of Jupiter Inlet, and good numbers coming in from Hobe Sound. Clams, Sandfleas, and FishBites remain the baits of choice for the pompano. Looks like we could be in for some good fishing this weekend!
