INSHORE- More and more reports of the first mullet showing up are trickling in. Shouldn't be long till things really start rolling inshore. Looks like the mullet run may time up very nicely with the opening of snook season this year. Snook fishing remains the best bet inshore right now. The snook are starting to slowly break up the spawning party, and should be heading back inshore in better numbers very soon. The Loxahatchee River has had some very good snook fishing over the past week. Mangrove snapper action remains fair inshore. Some decent jacks, and maybe a tarpon or two, pushing around in the ICW these days.
SURF/PIER- The Juno Beach Pier continues to produce nice mixed bag action on a variety of species early each morning and again late in the afternoon. The bait has been around the Pier in good numbers attracting a few kingfish, mackerel, blue runners, jacks, tarpon, and of course the snook. Flatlining live baits is a good choice for everything listed above; as is throwing a Rapala X-Rap early and late. The bait has been a bit of a pain in the but sometimes, so make sure you have a few #3 Red Hayabusa Sabiki's when they get tough. For those not into the pier, the snook have been biting along the beach very well. Again, not to sound like a broken record, early and late will be best for the snook. The summertime pompano bite is still fairly good north of Jupiter Inlet. Those looking to take a ride further up the line will find the glass minnow schools up towards Fort Pierce and north filled up with tarpon, sharks, snook, and other predators. Definitely a cool deal to se up that way. Just takes a little driving and patience to find them!
Good Luck Everybody!
