Snook season opens February 1st, and that will no doubt be the main game in town on the inshore fishing side of things. Fishing deeper bridges with good current flow is a good starting point for bagging a slot size snook. During the day look for snook to be hanging out on shallow flats with a dark bottom, or in areas that are getting a lot of sunshine. Live shrimp, or good shrimp imitations like the DOA Shrimp, and Shrimp Jigs are a great bait/lure choice for snook this time of year. Sheepshead action has also been very good inshore as of late.
Surf/Pier- Surf fishing remains a bit off for the season, but a mixed bag of fish are being caught by those putting the time in. Bluefish, spanish mackerel, jacks, and spinner sharks are scattered up and down the beach. Tossing a large silver spoon or big popping plug is a good way to find them. Pompano action improved this week, with some catches coming both north and south of Jupiter Inlet. Sandfleas and clams remain the top bait choice for the pomps. The bluefish were around in better numbers this week, which is an encouraging sign. Spinner sharks are around in solid numbers.
