Inshore- The springtime mullet run continues to file through and the snook and big jacks are taking advantage of the easy pickings. The spring mullet run doesn’t produce much in the way of finger mullet, and the average bait size tends to be a little larger. Not a bad thing if your looking to catch bigger fish, but don’t expect the same non-stop action that the fall mullet run can produce. Live mullet fished along seawalls and under boat docks is a solid bet. Throwing noisy topwater lures in the same areas early/late in the day for a shot at the snook and jacks if you’re not into fishing live baits. Other inshore fishing is in a bit of transition, without a lot of other action to write about.
Surf/Pier- Pompano fishing continues to fire off, and with strong south winds forecasted this weekend it could be lights out! Sandfleas, clams, and FishBites will be the bait of choice for the pompano. Early morning and late afternoon should be best for the pomps. Spanish and King Mackerel are being caught at the Juno Beach Pier in good numbers. Crappie jigs are great for the Spanish, while Rapala X-Raps are the ways to go for the kings. Snook fishing continues to improve on a nearly daily basis at the pier. Snook reports beginning to trickle in from the surf as well. A stray tarpon or two being reported along the beach as well. Good overall fishing right now along the beach…get after it!
