From Todd / Eric @ Juno Bait -Juno Beach

INSHORE:  Catch and release snook fishing remains the main game in town on the inshore front right now.  Look for the bridges to be good at night, especially on the outgoing tide.  Big baits are the way to go for big bites.  If you think your bait is too big...try one just a little bigger and see what happens!  Mangrove snapper are also biting around the bridges, especially at night as well.  Small live pilchards and live shrimp will be the bait of choice for the snapper.  Sandperch are biting small pieces of shrimp in the ICW.  
SURF/PIER:  Catch and release snook fishing remains very very good right now.  The early morning and late afternoon bite have been best.  Plastic jerk baits, Vudu Mullet, Rapala X-Raps, Yo-Zuri crystal minnows, and soft body swim baits are all catching the snook right now.  From the beach look for the best action to be in the first trough, and not way out.   Cast almost parallel to the shore instead of straight east for best luck.  The Juno Beach Pier snook bite is hot right now.  Live croakers and sand perch are solid choices for getting a big snook bite.  The sand perch and croakers are biting fairly well on the Pier just before the first entrance.  Try small live shrimp, small live sand fleas, and pieces of cut shrimp for best luck.  A very few mangrove snapper are biting around the Pier and Jupiter Inlet, with the best time being low light periods of the day.  A few tarpon milling along the beach early in the morning and also a few jacks as well.  Best action will be first thing in the morning and then again late in the afternoon.  Leave the surf to the sunbathers when the sun is high overheard.
