From Todd /Trey @ Juno Bait -Juno Beach

INSHORE-  Snook season is winding down, better get after them now!  Look for the bridges to produce at night on the outgoing tide.  Flair Hawk Jigs and large swimbaits remain great lure choices for the snook, while a live shrimp is also hard to beat.  Been a few redfish around inshore; not a huge number of them, but it's nice to hear of a few around.  Sea trout reports were trickling in, but seem to have really slowed down.  
SURF/PIER-  The Juno Beach Pier has been catching a few kingfish this week.  A trolley rigged sardine or X-Rap seems to be working on the kings.  Spanish Mackerel are scattered along the beach, and also starting to fill into Peck's Lake in fair numbers.  Pompano action was a bit slow this week, with reports to the north being better for the pompano.  Bluefish action has finally started to improve, with soem good catches coming out of Hobe Sound.

Sebastian Inlet Report


12-09-16 FRIDAY: FISH ARE BITING! 

The north jetty is now open approximately 75%. The north jetty is open 24/7 again; please help us maintain this wonderful resource. If you like fishing on the north jetty, treat it and others with respect. DO NOT throw objects at boaters; NO EXCUSES. Boaters: please maintain a reasonable distance from the jetty to avoid tangling lines with the jetty anglers. 

We have a cool, windy morning but we have anglers on the jetty trying their luck. Winds are blowing out of the Northwest at 18 mph, gusting to 28 and the water is choppy around the inlet and on the ICW. NOAA has extended the small craft advisory through late Saturday afternoon. Our boaters may want to stay on the dock this weekend, conditions do not look promising. We have a good chance of showers today; dress accordingly if you head to the inlet. 

Snook, Reds, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel and Flounder are all biting at the inlet. The variety of species this time of year is always good and fishing the inlet is great if conditions permit. Always check the NOAA forecast prior to boating. 

Our photos today are courtesy of Rafael Cales of Grant. Rafael sent in our first photo of his 10 year old daughter Bella with a Bonnethead Shark she landed off their dock. Bella also caught the crab she used for bait! She landed multiple Black Drum as well, all were released unharmed. 

Park Info: Surf Fishing Workshop tomorrow December 10, 2016 from 1:00 - 3:15 pm. This class is designed to introduce anglers to the basics of surf fishing. Meet at the Sebastian Inlet Fishing Museum on the south side of the Park. Call 772-388-2750 for more information.

Sebastian Inlet Report


                             

12-08-16 THURSDAY: BLACK DRUM, REDS, SNOOK, POMPANO, FLOUNDER, TROUT AND JACKS 

The north jetty is now open approximately 75%. The north jetty is open 24/7 again; please help us maintain this wonderful resource. If you like fishing on the north jetty, treat it and others with respect. DO NOT throw objects at boaters; the jetties were built for navigation, boaters underway have the right of way. 

We have Northwest winds blowing at 14 mph, gusting to 17 and the water is choppy. Hazardous boating conditions will follow the cold front and will go through the weekend. NOAA has a small craft advisory in effect through 11:00 A.M. Saturday. Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop reports that the Pompano were hitting well in the surf yesterday, taking clams. Blues were also active. Surf fishing will have to wait until next week; the cold front is going to blow out those chances for a few days, unless you don't mind being wet and cold! The cold front can be a good thing too; we could see more Flounder making their way in and out of the inlet. Black Drum have been biting consistently along with Sheepshead, Reds, Snook and Jacks.

 Ron McNeil makes the drive all the way from Sanford to fish the inlet, getting up at 3:00 a.m. to start his journey. He's fished several times in the past two weeks and has had good luck with Flounder. Our first photo is of Ron with a nice string of flatties.
 Our second photo today features Andrew Sampson of Melbourne. Andrew landed his 19" Flounder from the north side bank early
in the morning. He then decided to kayak fish and had no success. His Flounder yielded some pretty nice filets. 
 We received an update from Charlie Achinelli of Melbourne who fished the beach yesterday. The conditions were excellent for surf fishing and Charlie reported a very good Speckled Trout bite. He landed a 22" Trout on a gotcha lure, in photo three.

Scouting Around Sebastian Inlet Area

12-07-16 WEDNESDAY: FISHING IS GOOD! 

The north jetty is now open approximately 75%. The north jetty is open 24/7 again; please help us maintain this wonderful resource. If you like fishing on the north jetty, treat it and others with respect. DO NOT throw objects at boaters; NO EXCUSES. The western gate is a permanent fixture and can be closed at any time; it will be up the users of the jetty. 

Winds are blowing out of the Southwest at 2 mph, gusting to 6 and there is a light chop on the water. We have a beautiful day and it looks like a good day to get out and do a little surf fishing. Sunshine is predicted all day but we will have variable winds and they will increase a little in the afternoon hours. 

Snook are still being landed by our inlet anglers, this late in the season. The season will close December 15th through January 31st, they will be strictly catch and release during this time. Black Drum have been active along with some big Jacks, Sheepshead, Blues, Flounder, Pompano, Spanish Mackerel and Trout. Live shrimp seem to be the most effective live bait and some anglers are using plugs, gotcha lures and swimming plugs for artificials. We have a "cold front" predicted for tomorrow night and perhaps that will stimulate the bite even more.

From The Crew @ Whites Tackle - Ft Pierce / Stuart


Inshore the snook bite has been ok with a few nice fish around the bridges and jetty. The trout fishing has been good around Bear point to Middle cove with a few pompano around. The south jetty in Ft Pierce has had a few snook and flounder around on live shrimp around high tide.
