INSHORE- Snook fishing has been good inshore. The snook are definitely in pre-spawn pattern...which means they are hungry and ready to eat! Look for the snook to be active along seawalls and under boat docks (especially those with current breaks and ambush spots) early in the morning and late in the day on moving tides. A live mullet is a good bait choice; if your into lures try a Yo-Zuri Hydro or TopKnock pencil. At night look for the bridge snook bite to be your best bet. Flair Hawk jigs and bigger swimbaits will be good lure choices for targeting them at night. Some big jacks cruising around inshore right now. Snapper reports are picking up inshore as well.
SURF/PIER- Tough fishing along the beach and at the pier this week with a mad rough ocean and lots of seaweed. The Juno Beach Pier has been producing a fair snook bite, and when conditions were a little better a few permit have been around as well. Unfortunately the conditions don't really look like they will improve much over the next few days. Jupiter Inlet will be a option to try as the snook are starting to stage for the spawn, and a fair number of snapper have been mixed in as well.
