INSHORE- Still haven't really started to see the finger mullet showing up inshore yet; but it won't be long. Snook fishing remains the best bet inshore. The snook bite at the bridges has been very good on outgoing tide. A flair hawk jig remains the top lure choice, especially for slot size fish. Swimbaits should also do the job on the snook. A handful of bruiser jacks cruising around the ICW looking for early arriving mullet. Other inshore reports remain a bit slow. We are transitioning out of the dog days of summer into early fall...won't be long before we see some big improvement on the inshore side of things.
SURF/PIER- The Juno Beach Pier is till producing a fair number of keeper snook. The hot bait of late for the snook at the pier has been live shrimp of all things. That will no doubt change as we start to see the mullet show up. No real numbers of mullet yet, just a few early season trickles. Shouldn't be long before we start to see them in much better numbers. The Juno Beach Pier has also had a decent number of permit around. A small blue crab or calico crab is going to be the way to go for the permit. A few mullet up in Stuart, but no full on just yet. Scattering of early season pompano around over the past week or so.
