From Todd / Eric @ Juno Bait -Juno Beach

INSHORE:   Snook fishing has remained good this week, and should improve right on through the end of the season.  The snook are making their way towards the inlets, and eating heavily as they do.  Best bet on the snook remains area bridges at night on the outgoing tide.  Big baits are still getting bites, so don't be afraid to chunk the big stuff.  Flair hawk style jigs, swim baits, and big lipped plugs are all good choices now; as are live mullet.  Daytime action on the snook is a little tough.  If nighttime snook fishing doesn't work for you, be sure to fish low light periods of the day for best chance at banging a snook.  Some nice jacks cruising the ICW right now for those looking to pull on some hard fighters.  A few reports of some tarpon hanging around Palm Beach Inlet's south jetty.
SURF/PIER:  Looks like we are coming close to the end of pompano season, but it's not over just yet.  Still a few pompano being caught north of Jupiter Inlet, especially during low light conditions or days the wind blows up a little cloudy water.  Sandfleas, clams, and fresh cut shrimp are good bait choices right now.  The Juno Beach Fishing Pier has also been picking away at some late season pompano.  The pier is also producing a few slot size snook.  Live shrimp and fresh dead stomped baits seem to be getting the most bites out of the snook.  Croaker are biting small live shrimp or pieces of fresh shrimp in the first trough.  Scattered schools of big jacks cruising the beaches.  Did also have a couple day push of spanish mackerel around the pier.
