INSHORE- Just another week till snook season opens…it’s getting close now. The snook remain the best bet inshore right now. The snook spawn is winding down and the fish are starting to move out of the inlets. The arrivial of schools of mullet will get that move happening even a little quicker. Look for the snook to be in the ICW and Loxahatchee River around boat docks and points with good current flow. It’s almost hunting season in the woods, and it’s most definitely hunting season for snook in the water season. Look for ambush points and feeding stations…the snook won’t be far behind. Natural looking swimbaits are a good lure choice during the day, while a flair hawk is a solid choice at night. Of course live mullet are also a great bait choice as well. Beyond the snook, other inshore fishing remains painfully slow.
SURF/PIER- Action along the beach and a. t the pier dropped off significantly in our area this week. Catch and release snook fishing remains strong, but other action has not been as good. The pompano continue to bite north of Jupiter Inlet first thing in the morning. It’s a lot of smaller fish, with a few keepers in the mix. The big news on the beach has been the glass minnow run up to the north. Hard to pinpoint the best spot, but from Stuart to Sebastian has been the best bet to find the minnows. The tarpon are around the glass minnow schools when you get in the right area. Surf fishing should pop off almost anytime…the mullet run is coming!
