INSHORE- Fairly standard inshore report this week. As usual best action will remain catch and release snook fishing, especially in/around the inlets. Live croaker or sandperch are the top baits for the biggest snook. In along the seawalls live mullet will be a top bait choice for the snook and jacks. Should just be a few weeks away from the start of the fall mullet run. Keep an eye on the weather...a north breeze will get them pointed south i a hurry. Other inshore action is fairly slow. Has been a good number of mangrove snapper inshore. Small live pilchards and live shrimp are a good bet for the snapper.
SURF/PIER- Surf fishing, by summer time standards, has been very good this week. The snook have been cruising the beach in good numbers, along with a few tarpon and big jacks. Low light periods remain the best for the snook, though high sun can provide good sight fishing opportunities. For those looking for good action; the croakers, sandperch, and even a pompano or two are biting pieces of shrimp on a bottom rig. Fair scattering of summertime Spanish Mackerel around; though not in the same numbers we saw over the past week or two. The Juno Beach Pier snook bite has been a bit off this week, so look for better chances along the beach or in the inlets.
