From Todd &Trey @ Juno Bait -Juno Beach

The mullet are starting to push through the ICW, and the snook have been close behind them.  Tarpon, jacks, and a few redfish have also been following along with the mullet.  It's easiest to find the mullet early/late in the day or at night.  Boat traffic tends to put them down a little deeper, and makes them harder to find.  The predators tend to take full advantage of the mullet coming to the surface during lowlight periods of the day.  Live mullet fished on the outside edges of the school is the way to go if your into live baiting.  For lures try a Yo-Zuri Mag Darter or Hydro Pencil, Zara Spook, or Rapala X-Rap.  The flats around Hobe Sound and Munyon Island are starting to really come to life as well with the mullet showing up.  

SURF/PIER-  The mullet run reports are starting to come in more frequently.  The first arriving schols of mullet have been holding a lot of tarpon and snook.  Best bet on fishing the schools is to try and find them early and late in the day.  The predators tend to take advantage of the lowlight conditions and feed best/most then.  Unlike inshore fishing, fishing the schools at night doesn't do much.  The mullet tend to break up a bit and move offshore at night, making them harder to catch.  The Juno Beach Pier has been producing a fair number of Spanish Mackerel and blue runners over the past week.  Still decent size schools of sardines hanging around, so be sure to take plenty of red #3 sabikis.  Jupiter Inlet is still holding a nice number of snook, with the best bite seeming to go off just before sunrise.
