From Todd, Eddy & Jeff @ Juno Bait -Juno Beach

 INSHORE-  A little slower on the inshore reports this week.  Snook fishing remains good, and should only continuer to improve as the water warms up.  It's kind of hard to believe; but we aren't that far away from the snook starting to head towards the inlets in good numbers.  Before they do that though they tend to go on a feeding frenzy.  Look for the snook to start biting the bigger baits (Flairhawks, NLBN's, Hogy Swimbaits, Etc) better than shrimp jigs and smaller wintertime lures.  Day or night the key to snook fishing is using the tide to your advantage.  Snook are lazy and want to lay nose into the current and wait for baits to come to them.  Present baits and lures that way and snook fishing gets a whole lot easier! Some big springtime jacks cruising seawalls inshore right now, along with an occasional tarpon or two as well.  

SURF/PIER-  Pompano fishing remains very good right now!  Although action slowed a bit on Tuesday and Wednesday on the pomps; overall it remains very strong both along the beach and at the Juno Beach Pier.  The usual assortment of sandfleas, clams, shrimp, and Fishbites continue to be the top bait choices; while Doc's Goofy Jigs remain the top lure choice.  The bite seems to be best first thing in the morning and then again later afternoon (Like 4-6, not as much at sunset); and then off and on throughout the day depending on tides.  The sharks (mainly blacktips) are also a fan of the pompano and hanging out close by...In other words REEL FASTER!!!  The Juno Beach Pier has also had some nice schools of big jacks cruising through; with a GT Ice Cream or diamond jig being a top lure choice.  No cobia reports to speak of from the pier this week; but they could come cruising by just about anytime.
