Come visit the Juno Beach Pier for great fishing this December! Catch bluefish on lures and chunk bait like sardines, finger mullet or smaller bluefish. Don’t forget Spanish mackerel are here (use a crappie jig or red/silver Gotcha plug with free line). Pompano are also back – get ‘em with lures and bait. Catch croaker, whiting and sandperch on shrimp.
Loggerhead Marinelife Center’s gift store and the pier house have coastal-inspired gifts for every loved one. Don’t forget to stop in for all of your holiday shopping needs!
