From Todd & Eddy @ Juno Bait -Juno Beach

 INSHORE-  Snook fishing continues to remain the best bet inshore right now.  The Loxahatchee and ICW are both holding a good number of snook.  It might not be the most fun to fish in, but the wind really helps fire up the snook.  Wind whipped seawalls and points provides easy ambush spots for lazy snook.  Live mullet fished along a seawall during the day (especially early morning and late afternoon) is a solid bet: While docelights at night is a good bet for big numbers.  As always try to fish the last of the incoming or first of the outgoing for best results (which part of the tide cycle that works best is often heavily spot dependent).  The bridge bite at night has also went off pretty good for the snook.  A few big jacks in the mix inshore as well as a few resident tarpon.  Mangrove snapper are starting to bite a little better inshore.  Live shrimp is a good choice for the mangroves.  

SURF/PIER-  Despite rough nasty conditions (wind and enough seaweed to last a lifetime!) the surf and pier fishing has remained pretty good this week.  Conditions aren't nice and fishing will be tough...but still a decent number of fish around.  Pompano continue to bite well.  Hard to say exactly how long the pompano will hang around, but best guess is we only have a few more weeks of good action before they really start booking it north for the summer. 

Sandfleas, clams, shrimp, and Fishbites have all been good bait choices for the pompano.  Late season bluefish continue to bite very well along the beach and at the Juno Beach Pier.  Best bite for the blues has been early morning, with a second little push of them as the sun sets in the afternoon.  GT Ice Creams and Rapala X-Raps are a good bait choice for the blues.  Snook action has also improved along the beach and at the Juno Beach Pier.  Starting to see some live bait shoe up at the pier.
