INSHORE- Catch and release snook fishing remains the main game in town on the inshore side of things. The Loxahatchee River has started to produce a good number of snook, and Jupiter Inlet is holding strong as well. It's not mullet run time just yet; but a few little pods are trickling through and the snook are on them! Some big jacks as well mixed in with the snook. A few decent mangrove snapper reports continue to come in, especially at night.
SURF/PIER- Catch and release snook fishing has been good along the beach and at the Juno Beach Pier again this week. Lowlight periods of the day and high tides at night are the best bet for the snook. Spoolteks and large swimbaits have been working well for the snook; while croakers and sandperch are the top live bait choices. Still a few tarpon cruising along the beach, but the better numbers of tarpon are farther up the line now towards Vero and Sebastian. East winds this week pushed some pompano in along the beach. No huge numbers, but a few good reports of pompano did come rolling in. With continued east winds in the forecast for the weekend, it could be worth a try. Croakers and sandperch are biting well in the first trough on small pieces of fresh shrimp.
