INSHORE- As expected for this time of year...catch and release snook fishing will be the best bet inshore. A fair number of fish in the Loxahatchee right now, but a bulk of the fish will be around the inlets. Live baits during the day remain the way to go for the snook. At night bridges close to the inlets have been producing good numbers of snook. A small swimbait (like the 3" NLBN) on a fairly heavy jighead has been producing very well; especially on outgoing tide. Mangrove snapper fishing remains strong inshore. Best bite on the mangroves, especially the bigger ones, will be at night. Small live pilchards and live shrimp are the way to go for the snapper.
SURF/PIER- Cold water along the beach early in the week made fishing a little tough. A little wind the last couple days seems to be helping straighten things out. Catch and release snook fishing has improved the last few days with warming water. Along the beach small soft plastic paddle tails, small swimbaits, and suspending jerkbaits have been good lure choices for the snook. The snook bite at the pier was slow, but has improved late into the week. The Juno Beach Pier has also had a pretty solid amount of blue runners and jack around. The "Bobber Rig" with a small Clark Spoon is a good way to go for the Blue Runners. Crappie jigs and free-lining small live baits is also a good way to go for the runners. A handful of mangrove snapper reports coming from the pier as well, with the best bite very early in the morning.
