INSHORE: Pretty good snook fishing this week, and a little more stable weather pattern should really help get the snookies moving towards the inlet. Look for the bridges to really start getting good at night, especially the ones closer to the inlets. Flair hawk jigs and big swimsuits are a great choice right now for the snook.. They have started to get off the shrimp diet, and will be willing to snap at the bigger baits now as they try to fatten up before they start making babies. Outgoing tide will no doubt be best for the snook, but if the water has a little cloudiness to it the incoming tide will also produce. The jacks (including some big ones) are still roaming the ICW; and the smaller resident tarpon are hanging out in the Loxahatchee River. Other inshore fishing is a bit hit or miss.
SURF/PIER: Pompano fishing slowed a bit this week along Juno Beach/Jupiter; but was still very good up towards Jupiter Island/Hobe Sound. Should still be more fish coming with the spring run, so don't rule out Juno yet for some good days. The southeast wind this weekend shouldn't hurt the pompano fishing, and could help bring another push of fish up the beach. Snook fishing remains good on the Juno Beach pier. Fishing frozen smashed sardines on the bottom has been the key for the snook. Still a handful of bluefish hanging around, as well as passing schools of spanish mackerel.
