     Snook are biting in the surf along Jensen Beach and also in the St. Lucie Inlet. The best time to hook them in the inlet is during the day during the outgoing tide. There are also big jacks and a few tarpon cruising the beaches.
     In the Indian River, redfish are biting north of the Jensen Causeway. Snook are biting around the seawalls during the day and the bridges at night. Tarpon are also being reported around the bridges at night.
     Big numbers of snook are being caught around the Jupiter Inlet and in the surf. There are some nice snapper around the inlet as well.
     The best action in the Intracoastal Waterway in the Jupiter area this week has been snook around the bridges and dock lights at night. Some tarpon, snapper and jacks were also reported.
     There’s a good number of snook in the surf along Palm Beach, and the Lake Worth Inlet is loaded with them as well. You’ll also find tarpon and jacks in the mix. A few small snapper were also caught.
     Fishing the docks and bridges of the Intracoastal at night is good for catching snook and snapper, and there are also tarpon in the mix.
     Snook, tarpon and jacks are biting early in the morning in the surf along Boynton Beach.
     Anglers fishing in the Intracoastal from Lake Worth down through Boynton Beach are reporting snook and snapper at the bridges, along with sheepshead. The night action has been best, as you’d expect. A few tarpon have also been caught in the Intracoastal and in the Boynton Beach Inlet.

     Good numbers of bass are being caught along the outside grass line and the offshore islands during the early-morning hours. Live shiners continue to get the nod over artificial lures, but anglers are certainly having success either way.
