INSHORE: Snook fishing remains good inshore right now, and the weather looks good for the to bite again this weekend. The snook are starting to point their noses towards the inlet; so keep that in mind when picking out spots. Bridges near the inlets are really starting to produce some fair numbers of snook, especially on the outgoing tide. Flair hawk jigs, spooltek swimbaits, and shrimp jigs remain great lure choices for the snook. A live mullet is the top bait choice; especially when presented along a seawall or under boat dock during the day. A few bruiser jacks are mixed in with the snook, and maybe a tarpon around from spot to spot. Mangrove snapper action continues to improve in inshore areas, especially around some of the bridges at night. Live shrimp, or small pilchards if you can catch them, are top bait choices.
SURF/PIER: Pompano fishing remains very good, especially early in the morning and late in the afternoon. Sandfleas, clams, and shrimp are the top producing baits for the pompano; while a Doc's goofy jig is the top lure. The Juno Beach Fishing Pier has had a great spanish mackerel bite over the past few days. The crappie jig, Rapala X-Rap, and bobber rig with a clark spoon have all been good choices for the mackerel. Look for lowlight periods of the day to produce best fr the macks. Snook action has begin to improve along the beach and at the pier. A few tarpons and some big jacks cruising around as well.
