From Todd @ Juno Bait Crew-Juno Beach

  Catch and release snook fishing remains the best bet inshore.  The hot weather doesn't bother the snook...the hotter the better!  By and large the biggest concentration of snook will be in and/or near the inlets; with both Jupiter and Palm Beach Inlets holding good numbers.  If the inlets fishery isn't your scene, the ICW and Loxahatchee River will be holding snook as well.  During the day the snook will be laid up under boat docks and along seawalls.  At nigh the snook have been holding around bridges and docklights.  Day or night be sure to fish the last of the incoming and first of the outgoing for best luck.  Having some moving water is key.  Other inshore action is on the slow side.  A few scattered snapper reports, along with a few decent sand perch catches.  

SURF/PIER-  Catch and release snook fishing has been very good along the beach and at the Juno Beach Pier this week.  Early morning and late afternoon as usual will be the best bet for the snook.  Along the beach small paddle tails, small bucktails, and smaller twitch baits will all be good lure choices.  Live baits will also be a good choice.  The Juno Beach Pier snook bite continues to improve.  Lots of fish around, and when the bait gets right they start chewing.  Just be careful with those big spawning females...they have the future in their bellies.  he Juno Beach Pier has also had a decent number of bonita, and a few scattered kingfish around.  Early and late is best bet for the kings, while the bonita will often bite throughout the day.  A mixture of blue runners, sandperch, and croakers have been hanging around the first trough, and are generally willing to chomp down some small pieces of fresh shrimp.
