From Todd @ Juno Bait Crew-Juno Beach

 INSHORE- Snook fishing remains the best bet inshore right now. Warming weather has them pointed towards the inlets. It’s not spawning time yet; but it’s not far off and the snook will start feeding heavily. Warm weather has the snook’s metabolism creeping up; so bigger baits and lures definitely are coming into play. During the day look for the snook to be laid up along seawalls and under boat docks. Early morning a topwater will play for the snook; while a live mullet is top choice once the sun starts to get up. At night the snook have been biting well around the bridges. A flair hawk jig is a solid choice for the snook right now. A bigger swimbait is also going to be a good choice. Docklights will also be holding a good number of snook (though most of the fish on dock lights tend to be a bit smaller). 

SURF/PIER- Pompano action slowed way down this week; but still a handful of fish hanging on! Sounds like the pompano fishing remains better up to the north of us. A lot of shorts to pick through as well before getting a keeper or two. Snook fishing has improved along the beach and at the Juno Beach Pier this week. Warm conditions, nice looking water, and some bait showing up has the snook popping off halfway decent. A Rapala X-Rap or similar small swimming plug is a good choice for the snook right now along the beach. Still a few good schools of jacks cruising the beach. Blue runners are showing up at the Juno Beach Pier in good numbers (summer is here!). Also starting to get more and more reports of tarpon cruising north along the beach.

Thanks For Reading,
