INSHORE- Nice mixture of action inshore these days. Snook fishing has still been good, although passing cold fronts will make it a little tougher. Snook action at night around the bridges will remain good, especially on the outgoing tide. Shrimp jig, Flair Hawk, and NLBN Swimbaits all remain good lure choices for the snook. The winter time shrimp bite inshore (Sheepshead, Black Drum, Croakers, Etc) is finally starting to get going good. Look for boat docks with deep water close by to be top spots. Use a light fishfinder/slide rig or a small jighead for best action. Typically a little current will help get the bite fired up a bit.
SURF/PIER- Spanish Mackerel action has been very good over the past week. The Juno Beach Pier has been very solid for the Macs, and Peck's Lake is also starting to fire off pretty good. All the usual lures (Crappie Jigs, Got-Cha Plugs, Clark Spoons) will be solid choices for the Mackerel. The best Mackerel bite tends to be early in the morning and then again late in the afternoon, but they can also be picked away at throughout the day generally. Pompano fishing also has been pretty good this week. Sandfleas remain the top bait, and also incredibly hard to come by. Clams, FishBItes, and FishGum are all also working on the pomps. Doc's Goofy Jig is the top lure choice for the pompano on the pier and in the boat. Bluefish action remains fair to good as well. As is generally the case this time of year...the sharks are here in good numbers and ready to test your tackle!
