From Todd &Trey @ Juno Bait -Juno Beach

INSHORE-  Catch and release snook fishing remains the best bet inshore right now.  Only about three weeks till snook season opens and we are starting to see slight signs of the snook beginning to break out of the summertime spawning pattern.  When they do some snook will end up out along the beach, others will pull back inshore.  A handful of mullet are beginning to trickle through, and barring any random storms or strange weather we should be only a few weeks from the real start of the mullet run.  The snook now are stilll somewhat relating to the inlet and bridges close by, but you can also start to find a few more making there way farther up the ICW and Loxahatchee River.  Mangrove snapper fishing remains pretty good inshore right now.  Live shrimp, small pilchards, and chunks of sardine are all good bait choices for the snapper right now.  
The Juno Beach Pier has had some really good fishing this week!  Nice mixed bag action from small to large on the pier.  Spanish Mackerel have been around in good numbers this week.  While they will bite some lures; the best bet has been freelancing small live baits on a long shank hook.  A unexpected push of pompano showed up at the Pier this week and they were biting Doc's Goofy Jigs very well.  How long those fish will stick around is anybodies guess...but it is nice to see a few around.  Catch and release snook fishing remains very good, along with a solid number of tarot hanging around as well.  
A handful of kingfish are biting at the pier first thing in the morning and then again right around closing time.  The mangrove snapper bite has slowed down considerably from a few weeks ago, but a few are still around.  Catch and release snook fishing along the beach remains strong.  Still some pompano being caught north of Jupiter Inlet first thing in the morning.  Overall, it's above average surf/pier fishing for August standards...get after it!
