Inshore- Catch and release snook fishing is really good right now, and will only continue to get better. The inlets are filling up with fish, but not all have made it yet. That means the bridges, beach, and even mangroves are still holding some fish. They are hungry right now, so a wide variety of baits and lures should work on them. Take a little extra care in releasing those big females this time of year, they need all the energy they can get to start dropping those little snooklets! Jacks are cruising all over the place inshore right now, and love to crush a topwater around seawalls early and late in the day. Mangrove snapper have started to bite good in the usual summertime spots.
Surf/Pier- It may be June, but nobody told the big schools of pompano hanging around still. The pier has been producing good numbers of fish on Doc’s Goofy Jigs, shrimp, and clams. Bite is good early and late, with some fish in the middle of the day. Not sure how long this will last, so get them while they are hanging around!!! The snook are cruising the surf and harassing the bait schools around the pier. They may be out of season, but it is still fun to trick them on a topwater along the beach early in the morning. Tarpon are starting to make the summertime move north.
