From Todd &Trey @ Juno Bait -Juno Beach

Inshore-  Snook fishing remains the best bet inshore, and the first finger mullet arrivals have them very fired up.  Best action for the snook will be at night as everything calms down and the bait starts to come up to the surface.  Look for the snook, tarpon, jacks, and maybe even a few redfish to be following the finger mullet schools.  If you don't have any luck finding the mullet, set up around likely ambush spots, seawalls, or bridges with good moving water.  Live finger mullet are obviously a solid bait choice; while those looking to throw lures will do well with Yo-Zuri Mag Darters, DOA Bait Busters, and Rapala X-Raps.  
Surf/Pier-  Starting to see some pods of mullet, but full on mullet run is not yet here.  Reports have large schools of mullet up towards Sebastian for those trying to track the progress.  Snook fishing remains very good along the beach.  Some days have been tough with the seaweed, but overall fishing remains good.  Swimming plugs (Rapala X-Raps and Yo-Zuri Longcast) have been working well, as have Flair Hawk Jigs and big Swimbaits during lowlight periods of the day.  When the sun is up a bit higher, it's hard to beat a live bait for the snook. Spanish Mackerel bite has been good this week at the Juno Beach Pier.  The bobber rig/clark spoon combo remains a solid option for the Macs, as does freelining a small live bait.  Mixed in with the Spanish Macs have been a few kingfish.  A large swimming plug is also a good option for the kings.
