From Todd &Trey @ Juno Bait -Juno Beach
INSHORE: Snook fishing had started to improve this week, but another spring front will most likely slow them back down this weekend. Look for snook fish to really start rolling as we see more consistent warm weather in a row soon. The snook have been in the Loxahatchee River around boat docks and seawalls during the day; and stacking up around docelights and bridges at night. Look for the snook to be keyed in on mullet along seawalls, and shrimp around the docks and bridges. Some big bruiser jacks around the Loxahatchee River this week. The jacks are also keyed in on mullet along seawalls...they just go about attacking them a little different than the snook do. The Home Sound flats are holding a nice little mixed bag of fish early in the morning. Been a few snook, jacks, ladyfish, pompano, and a few others from marker 40 to 44 in the ICW up that way. Sandperch action has been very good in the ICW on small pieces of shrimp.
SURF/PIER: Early in the week saw some good surf and pier action, but strong southeast winds limited most action as of late. Changing weather with the front this weekend could fire up the fish (If the water doesn't end up to cloudy and dirty). Pompano bit good again this week. No hot spot to speak of as the fish seem to be really moving quick. The pompano bite has bounced around from Singer Island up to Home Sound and pretty much everywhere in between. Sandfleas, clams, and FIshBites will be the bait of choice for the pompano. Spanish Mackerel and a few bluefish are also scattered up and down the beach. The Bobber rig with a clark spoon is a solid choice right now as the fish seem to be feeding heavily on glass minnows. Croaker have been biting live shrimp very good at the Juno Beach Pier this week. Spinner shark fishing has not been as good as it should be this week, but a few of them are around. Fresh chunks of cut bait remain the bait of choice for the sharks.
