INSHORE: Catch and release snook fishing remains good inshore. The bridges are producing good snook action on the outgoing tide, and the Loxahatchee River has fish along seawalls early in the morning. The snook, for the most part, are keyed in on big baits; so don't be afraid to chunk some big stuff. If you can't keep em, might as well aim for the big ones. Just be careful with the big spawning females...they are literally holding the future snook fishery inside them. Mangrove snapper are hanging around area bridges at night. Small live pilchards and live shrimp are good baits for the snapper. Mixed reports on the sand perch in the usual inshore spots.
SURF/PIER: Snook fishing remains the main game in town. Early morning tends to be the best along the beach, while the pier has been producing throughout the day. Good mixed big action at the Juno Beach Pier this week, with lots of different species around. The tarpon are cruising through early, a few kings have been hooked on X-Raps, Cero Mackerel are around, and a sailfish was even caught today. Yep...you read that right:
Our good customer Dave picked off a nice sailfish early this morning. A few mangrove snapper are hanging around the pilings, and seem to bite best early in the morning. Should be a fishy weekend, give it a shot if you have chance.
