INSHORE- Snook fishing has been very good inshore this week. A fair number of springtime mullet and also a decent number of pilchards have the snook fired up; along with a decent number of bigger jacks and a few tarpon. Look for the best action to be at sunrise, sunset, and on good moving tides. The Loxahatchee River and ICW are both holding a good number of snook. The bridge snook bite has also popped off pretty good this week. Flair Hawk Jigs and swimbaits have been the ticket at night for the snook.
SURF/PIER- The beach absolutely fired off this week in a big way! Pompano showed back up in good numbers and ready to bite. Best fishing for the pompano has bounced around from south of the Juno Beach Pier to north of the Jupiter Inlet. Good numbers of the Pompano though seems to be in/around the Jupiter Reef Club. Fishing from the beach for the pompano has been best with sand fleas, FishBites, and Fish Gum. From the Juno Beach Pier or the boat the same baits will work well, and Doc's Goofy Jigs are also catching the pompano well. This week also saw the arrival of some large schools of glass minnows. The minnows have the Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Jacks, Snook, and the Blacktip Sharks fired up. Small swimming plugs, small spoons, and metal jigs (Keep them small to resemble glass minnows) are the ticket around the minnow schools. The Sharks have been biting topwater poppers really good. Watching a shark blow up a topwater is super cool to see!
