Inshore- The pompano fishing has still been good in the Loxahatchee River and Jupiter Island/Hobe Sound Flats of the Intracoastal(ICW). 3/8oz Doc’s Goofy Jigs in pink, gold, or yellow seem to be the ticket for the pompano these days. Put a little bit of 25 or 30lb flurocarbon on to help save some of those jigs from the ladyfish and jacks that are mixed in. The new Hook-Ups pompano jig or Gulfstream Lures shrimp jig are also very effective for some mixed bag action. If your more into bait fishing, shrimp or sandfleas are the ticket. Mixed in with the pompano, should be some nice sheepshead and black drum. The flats around MacArthur State Park have been alive with a variety of fish. A few spotted seatrout, redfish, jacks, ladyfish, and pompano have all been caught the last few days. Live shrimp will no doubt provide the most chances at the above listed species. Sandperch, small mangrove snapper, and a few sheepshead and black drum are biting under a few of the local bridges.
Surf/Pier- Fishing has been pretty slow, with the exception of the spinner sharks hanging around. Bluefish have been a little bit north of us, so some north wind may help push them down. Pompano bite has been very tough, as the sharks have most of the fish pushed inshore. Some good whiting and croaker catches in the surf. Keep the hooks small and use fresh cut shrimp for best luck. If your into shark fishing, do it now while the spinners and blacktips are stacked up in the surf.
