Snook fishing continues to remain strong around the bridges and in the Loxahatchee River. The snook are eating shrimp at night around the bridges and docklights; while a live mullet remains the bait of choicefor the snook during the day. Mixed in with the snook have been some bruiser jacks as well. Look for the jacks to be along seawalls that have a few feet of water up against them. A live mullet fished tight to the wall won't go unoticed for long if they are around. The resident Lox River Tarpon have been biting pretty good over the past few weeks. Hobe Sound Flats continue to produce a nice mixed bag of species. Ladyfish, jacks, pompano, bluefish, snapper, snook, and a few trout are all being caught from Mile Marker 40 to Mile Marker 44. Live shrimp is a solid bait choice for fishing the flats up that way.
SURF/PIER- Pompano action has remained very strong along the beach and at the Juno Beach Pier this week. Doc's Goofy Jigs are a solid lure choice at the Pier; while sandfleas, clams, and FishBItes are the baits of choice along the beach. Look for the pomps to bite best during lowlight periods of the day, especially if it lines up with a high tide. Bluefish remain a bit sporadic, but are coming through in decent numbers. Silver spoons, diamond jigs, noisy popping plugs, and cut mullet are all good choices for the blues. Blacktip sharks are along the beach in good numbers, and a lot of fun on light tackle. Spanish Mackerel should start to show in better numbers at pretty much anytime as well.
