From Todd & Eddy @ Juno Bait -Juno Beach

 Snook fishing remains god inshore right now.  Last weekend to invite one home for dinner before the season closes.  The Loxahatchee River has been holding a few snook.  Bridges closer to the inlet are also producing well.  Outgoing tide tends to be the best bet for the snook; but if the water is moving you have a chance at them.  Live mullet is the best bait in the river.  Flair Hawk bite has been good at night.  Mangrove snapper bite has been improving inshore.  Small live pilchards and live shrimp are top bait choice for the mangroves.  A few big jacks and a stray tarpon or two cruising around inshore as well.  

SURF/PIER- Snook fishing has really been heating up at the Juno Beach Pier and in Jupiter and Palm Beach Inlet.  Live baits (Croakers, pilchards, grunts, etc...) will be the best bait choice for the snook.  Look for outgoing tide to be the best bet in the inlets.  At the Pier the snook will bite best early in the morning and late in the afternoon.  The Juno Beach Pier continues to have some big jacks cruising through.  A diamond jig or swimming plug (Yo-Zuri Longcast Minnow or Rapala X-Rap) is a great way to go for the jacks.  The same lures will work if a stray kingfish should come cruising by.  Been a fair number of moonfish around the Pier and Jupiter Inlet.  Small crappie jigs or large sabiki rigs tend to be the best bet for them.  A few mangrove snapper around this week.  Croakers have been biting very good in the surf.  Live shrimp remains the bait of choice for the croaker.
