From Todd @ Juno Bait Crew-Juno Beach


INSHORE-  Catch and release snook fishing has been good inshore.  A bulk of the snook will be in and around the inlets; but still a decent number further inshore as well.  Best action on the snook in the inlets will be based on the tides.  For the fish further inshore the tide is super important, but also try to fish lowlight periods whenever possible.  The snook will also bite well at night around the bridges.  A handful of mangrove snapper reports inshore, but not huge numbers.  For best luck on the snapper try fishing at night.  Small live pilchards or shrimp will be the baits of choice for the snapper.  

SURF/PIER- Catch and release snook fishing fired off a bit this week, with the surf starting to come to life.  While the Juno Beach Pier has been producing good numbers of snook, it's nice to see the surf numbers pick up as well.  Best bet for the snook on the beach will be early morning and late afternoon.  A small twitchbait, swimming plug, or light bucktail will all be good lure choices for the snook cruising the beach.  Any type of small live baits (sardines, pilchards, etc) should all get lots of bites.  A bigger sand perch or croaker will be the way to go for getting bigger bites.  The Juno Beach Pier has been producing a few bonita and kingfish bites as well.  A few tarpon cruising the beach, though the numbers have fallen off pretty good on them.  Croaker are biting decent in the first trough.  Small pieces of shrimp will be the way to go for bait.
