INSHORE- Inshore reports remained very similar to last week. Best bet inshore right now is going to be the sheepshead. Palm Beach Inlet is pretty good for the sheepshead right now, as are some of the local bridges. Live shrimp, Sandfleas, and fiddler crabs (good luck tracking down the last two!) are all good bait choices for the sheepshead. Catch and release snook fishing remains fair. Look for the snook to be feeding on outgoing tide around the bridges at night. Live shrimp floated through the shadow line is a dynamite way to go for the snook this time of year. Hobe Sound Flats have had some fish around this week; with jacks, ladyfish, sheepshead, occasional trout and pompano, and small snook all being possible. The Loxghatchee River was pretty good last week with some good sheepshead, and a few triple tail reports. Live Shrimp will be a good bait option for both.
SURF/PIER- Another slow week on the beach. Rough conditions and dirty water brought fishing reports pretty much to a grinding halt. Conditions over the weekend unfortunately aren't looking a whole lot better. Saturday looks like it may end up being ok; but hard to say how the water will look. If it clears up a few fish may show up. The Juno Beach Pier has had a few fish in the rough stuff this wee; including the stray winter snook or two. If the water stays on the cleaner side we could see a little push of pompano this weekend, but I'm not holding my breath on that one! A handful of bluefish around. A loud noisy topwater popper, silver spoon, or cut mullet is a good bait choice for the blues. About time for the better numbers of Blacktip Sharks to start showing up.
