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

 INSHORE:  Catch and release snook fishing remains the best bet inshore right now.  Some big fish cruising seawalls right now; and a properly presented topwater plug can draw some jaw dropping explosions.  Typically the best action on the snook will be early morning and late afternoon, but don't overlook tide changes and approaching storms as well.  At night the snook have been biting well around the bridges.  A flair hawk is always a good choice, but the snook have really been smashing the 3" NLBN swimbait this week.  Mangrove snapper continue to bite pretty well, especially at night.  Live shrimp and small pilchards are the best bait for the mangroves.  Look for the mangrove snapper to bite best around structure (bridges, seawalls, pilings, etc) with a moderate amount of current.  

SURF/PIER:  A little more action along the beach and at the pier this week with improving water conditions.  A little more bait around (primarily pilchards0 this week which always help.  The snook are in the inlets decently, and have started to move along the beach a little better as well.  Sightfishing the snook in the trough is starting to become a viable option.  Fishing live pilchards in the beach is also a good way to go.  The Juno Beach Pier has had a god number of blue runners around, along with a few scattered Spanish Mackerel.  The snook are also staring to get right at the pier as well.  A live sandperch is a great way to go for a big snook right now.  Small pieces of fresh shrimp on a very small hook with light leader is the way to go for catching perch and whiting.
