INSHORE- Catch and release snook fishing remains good inshore. The Inlet bite remains very good in both Jupiter and Palm Beach Inlet. During the day it's hard to beat live croaker and sandperch. At night the snook are biting Flair Hawk jigs and bigger swimbaits good as well. Last part of the incoming and the first part of the outgoing tide seem to be the best bet for the snook; but that can change daily with the conditions. The night bridge bite also remains very good for the snook. Mangrove snapper action was good this week inshore. Live shrimp and small live pilchards remain the baits of choice for the snapper.
SURF/PIER- Tough week on the beach with choppy conditions and lots of seaweed. If you can battle through the weeds the snook fishing has been pretty good. Live croakers or sandperch are a top bait choice for the big snook, while pilchards will work well for the smaller snook. At night a Flair Hawk or 5" NLBN Swimbait are great lure choices; during the day the 3" NLBN has been a solid choice. The Juno Beach Pier has been producing a few blue runners and a small scattering of Spanish Mackerel as well. Small live pilchards are a good choice for both. Croaker and sandperch bite fell off pretty bad this week. A few tarpon and jacks cruising the beach as well.
