- Looks like the spring mullet run is kicking off inshore. The spring mullet run is a little tougher to pattern than the fall run, and it is more big mullet...but the action that goes along with it is fantastic. Snook fishing has been very good in the Loxahatchee River. Alive mullet fished along a seawall or under a bot dock is not going to go unnoticed for long. Look for likely ambush points, docks with current flow, and access to deeper water as key ingredients to finding the snook. Been some big jacks cruising around as well; also very willing to smash a live mullet. The bridges are holding snook in good numbers at night, and that will continue to improve as the weather warms. With the spring mullet around now is a good time to throw the bigger jigs and swimbaits. The snook will still bite the shrimp and shrimp jigs, but the bigger baits will not go unnoticed these days. Farther up the Loxahatchee River the juvenile tarpon have been active early in the morning and late in the afternoon. Jacks and a few snook are making up a bulk of the action around Munyan Island as well these days.
SURF/PIER- Gonna be a tough weekend for surf fishing based on the forecast (See below). This week saw fairly mixed reports from the beach and pier. A few pompano were around north of Jupiter Inlet, but no big numbers anywhere to speak of. Scattering of bluefish around, along with a few jacks. The Juno Beach Pier has had a few Spanish Mackerel around. Spanish Mackerel action has been good overall at Peck's Lake; but this weekend doesn't look very favorable for trying them. Blacktip and Spinner Sharks have been around in good numbers...but not going to be a great weekend for targeting them.
