From Todd @ Juno Bait Crew-Juno Beach

INSHORE-  A little slim on inshore reports this week.  Snook fishing was a little off, but a few around for those really putting in the work.  Fair snook fishing around the bridges at night, with outgoing tide producing the best results.  Flair Hawks and bigger swimbaits are starting to produce better and better for the snook.  During the day best bet for the snook is mullet along the seawalls.  A few snook biting topwaters in the river early in the morning.  A few more mangrove snapper showing up in shore.  Live shrimp and small pilchards are the top bait choice for the mangroves.    

SURF/PIER-  The spring run of pompano is in full effect right now!  Really good numbers of pompano coming in this week both at the Juno Beach Pier and along the beach.  On the beach it is more of a bait bite; with sand fleas and FishBites catching the best.  Shrimp and clams are also good baits to have (Pompano are funny fish, and will bite one bait better than another from day to day).  On the Fishbites chartreuse and electric chicken colors have been the hottest, with flavor not mattering as much.  On the Juno Beach Pier the pomp bite is split evenly between bait and jigs.  For bait sand fleas, fresh shrimp, and Fishbites (like the beach) will be top bait choices.  No super hot jig color, but chartreuse and pink seem to have the slight edge. Doc's Goofy Jig and JYG Pro Mycro have both been working well.  Good number of Spanish Mackerel around the Juno Beach Pier as well.  Depending on conditions a white crappie jig or size 10 Rapala X-Rap will be solid lure choices for the Macs.  Still a little scattering of bluefish around.  Are cool front will likely keep a few more around through the weekend.  A diamond jig or GT Ice cream is a good lure choice for the blues.
