INSHORE- Snook reports have improved as the week has gone along (no doubt due to warming weather). The Loxahatchee River has been holding a fair number of snook. Early morning topwater bite has been pretty good for the snook. The Yo-Zuri Hydro and Top-Knock Pencil have been great lure choices for the snook. A live mullet fished along a seawall or under a boat dock with some current is a solid choice as the sun get up a little higher in the sky. A few good jacks and a resident tarpon or two in the same areas as well. Other inshore action has been a bit hit or miss. Starting to get a few mangrove snapper reports coming in; but it remains a bit early for the bigger numbers of them to show up. Tarpon fishing in Palm Beach Inlet remains pretty strong. The resident fish around the Sailfish Club are biting live shrimp well on the tide changes.
SURF/PIER- Pompano fishing remains very good along the beach. A few very windy days and some heavy seaweed days slowed it a bit; but still very good numbers of them around! Sandfleas(we have a little batch of really little one in-stock), clams, shrimp, FishBites, and FishGum have all Benn great choices for the pompano. Mixed in with the pompano have been a few permit, croakers, whiting, and plenty of blue runners. Early morning and late afternoon remain best bet for the pompano. Still a fair number of bluefish around; including some really good size ones! The Juno Beach Pier has been holding a little bit of live bait, and the predators are not far behind. Snook fishing has been improving on a daily basis. A few kingfish in the mix, along with some bruiser jacks. A Rapala X-Rap or Yo-Zuri Longcast minnow is a solid lure choice for both the jacks and kings. The Juno Beach Pier has also had a cobia or two come by, along with a few permit. Good springtime fishing right now...get after it!
