INSHORE- A bit spotty on the inshore front this week. Snook fishing has been good, with the bridges producing some decent catches at night. The flats around Munyon Island and Hobe Sound have been producing a mixed bag of species. Sheepshead have been biting around the bridges on fresh shrimp. A few reports of some pompano around in the Loxahatchee River and ICW. Other inshore action remains spotty.

SURF/PIER- Pompano fishing has been good over the past week, and should remain good for the near future(as long as the sharks don't scare everything off!). Sandfleas, clams, and Fishbites are the baits of choice for the pompano. Best pompano action has been north of Jupiter Inlet, with some fair catches also coming at the Juno Beach Pier and along Juno Beach. Low light periods of the day are best for the pompano. Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish remain scattered up and down the beach in fair numbers. This week saw a nice push of Spinner Sharks along the beach as well. The spinner sharks are great fun on light tackle, especially on topwater lures.
