INSHORE- Really good inshore fishing this week, and conditions look good for that to continue into the weekend. Snook fishing remains the best bet, with good number and good size fish around. most of the snook are locked in on the mullet schools and very ready to eat. Early in the morning and late afternoon a topwater plug (Yo-Zuri Hydro Pencil or Topknock are two great choices) fished around bait docks and seawalls is a great way to go for the snook. Ambush points and areas with good current will better improve your odds. In with the snook taking advantage of the mullet schools should be a good number of tarpon, jacks, and even the occasional redfish. At night the bridge snook bite remains very strong. Flairhawk Jigs and 5" NLBN Swimbaits have been the lures of choice.
SURF/PIER- A good number of mullet coming down the beach this week, with a good number of fish around. Lots of big tarpon and snook in the mullet schools; along with sharks, big Spanish Mackerel, and jacks. Looks like it may get a little rough along the beach making fishing a bit tough, but the fish should be around. The Juno Beach Pier will very likely go off this weekend. Find the mullet schools and the fish won't be far behind. A Rapala X-Rap, Yo-Zuri Mag Darter, or 8" NLBN have all been good lure choices around the mullet schools. OF course fishing a live mullet on the outside edge or under the school is also a great way to go. Typically the best action will be early and late in the day; but when the ocean gets moving like it's forecasted to this weekend it can stay active throughout the day. A few more pompano reports this week. It's still a bit early in the season for the pompano, but those putting in the time have been catching a few.
