INSHORE- Snook fishing continues to improve with the warming weather. As the water inshore begins to warm back up a bit the snook will begin to become more and more active. Snook reports are improving at night around the bridges. Look for outgoing tide to be the best tide for the snook; with flair hawk jigs and SpoolTek swimbaits being top lure choices. Snook, mostly smaller ones, are also around the docklights in good numbers. Live Shrimp, DOA Shrimp, and Vudu Shrimp (see a pattern here...) are good choices around the docklights. Look for the snook to bite best on the top of the outgoing tide, but that may vary depending on where your fishing. Other inshore fishing reports were a bit slower this week. Has been a few jacks cruising around inshore, but no big numbers yet. Area bridges are producing a good number of sandperch on pieces of fresh shrimp. The Hobe Sound Flats in the ICW are still holding a nice assortment of fish as well.
SURF/PIER- Good pompano fishing this week north of Jupiter Inlet. Top producing baits have been sandfleas, clams, and FIshbites. The Juno Beach Pier continues to produce a few kingfish each morning, with Rapala X-Raps being a great lure choice for that. Spinner/Blacktip sharks remain around in good numbers for those looking for something a little bigger to pull on. Good numbers of bluefish and jacks scattered up and down the beach as well.
There was one lucky angler who caught a nice Permit on shrimp and a Juno Pier rental Rod/Reel talking about beginners luck.
