INSHORE- Warming weather has the snook fishing really heating up. Good number of snook around the bridges at night, and locked tight to seawalls and under boat docks during the day. Live shrimp is still a solid choice for the snook, but bigger baitfish are going to start to come into play as well. Flair hawk jigs and bigger swimsuits will also remain solid baits for the snook. Action around Munyon Island remains good with a nice mixture of species around. Some sheepshead still biting around area bridges on fresh cut shrimp.
SURF/PIER- Pompano action was fair this week. Some anglers tracked down good numbers, while others picked away at one here and there. Sandfleas, clams, and FishBites are the top bait choices for the pompano right now. Good number of bluefish around as well as some Spanish Mackerel. The spinner sharks have started to show up in pretty good numbers as well. Late winter/early springtime action in full effect right now...should be a good weekend to go give them a shot on the beach!
