INSHORE- Snook season opens back up next week...good weekend to do a little scouting for them. Overall snook fishing has been a bit slow, but those putting in the time have been finding a few in the usual wintertime hangouts. The shrimp jig bite is still on at night. Look for slightly cloudy water and fair tide movement (generally outgoing) for best luck on the snook. A hand full of inshore pompano reports coming in from Hobe Sound and Lake Worth. A bright colored Doc's Goofy Jig is the best bet for the pomps. Small jacks, blue runners, and ladyfish will also jump all over a Doc's Goofy Jig. Sheepshead reports slowed a bit this week, but still a decent number around. Shrimp and sand fleas remain the best bet for the sheepshead.
SURF/PIER- Somewhat slow fishing this week both on the beach and at the pier. A slow pick of pompano being caught, but no numbers to speak of. From the beach it's been Fish bites, sand fleas, and clams. From the Juno Beach Pier the same baits will work well, as will the Doc's Goofy Jig. Some good schools of jacks cruising the beach along Singer Island and Palm Beach Inlet. Look for the jacks to be most active early morning and late afternoon. The tarpon have also been hanging around Palm Beach Inlet in fair numbers. No bluefish or Mackerel action to speak of this week; hopefully the front this weekend helps get some pointed in our direction.
