In the St. Lucie Inlet and along the docks in the St. Lucie and Indian Rivers it is still game on for snook. Guides are reporting regularly getting their clients hooked up with slot-size keepers and some huge 40-inch plus fish. They are mostly catching them using live baits including mullet, croaker and some pinfish.
Anglers fishing for snook are also catching trout and redfish as bycatch.
There have been some nice triple tail caught along the channel markers.
At the Roosevelt Bridge good-size tarpon are being caught.
Anglers working the schools of mullet with artificial lures along beaches in Jupiter are catching good numbers of snook. 
Fly fisherman in the same areas have been reporting catching ladyfish. Fishing at the Jupiter Inlet is producing a huge variety of fish the past week. Anglers are catching Spanish mackerel, snook, jack crevalle, mangrove snapper and even a few keeper muttons.
There have been schools of mullet moving up into the Loxahatchee River and anglers working them have been catching snook, jack crevalle and even a few redfish.
Anglers at the Boynton Inlet have been catching a lot of southern puffers off the south jetty using frozen, cut shrimp. The north jetty has been producing snook, mangrove snapper, jack crevalle , barracuda and permit on a variety of live and cut bait as well as artificial lures. 
The Intracoastal Waterway has had schools of baitfish moving through, mostly glass minnows and mullet. There have been a lot of tarpon rolling along the channel edges and bait schools being chased by jack crevalle and snook along the shorelines early in the morning.
Lantana Bridge anglers have been catching jack crevalle, snook, sand perch and a few redfish using live shrimp and cut mullet.
The fishing the past week has been pretty good on both live bait and artificial lures. There are a few big bass around to be caught and it will keep getting better as the water begins cooling down next month. The artificial bite has been good using Gambler Aces and Zoom Super Flukes.
