If you’re visiting Juno Beach you can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities. Whether you’re enjoying the sandy beaches, swimming, boating, golfing, or fishing, you’re certain to have a fantastic day!
Anglers who are looking to fish Juno Beach don’t need to have a boat. You can fish along the shoreline, hire a local charter, or opt to fish the Juno Beach Park Pier. This fantastic fishing spot is sure to provide a great day of bending rods!
Juno Beach is a small town located on the East Coast of Florida in Palm Beach County. It’s situated between Jupiter and West Palm Beach. The beach is a stretch of beautiful sandy beaches with limited homes and hotels. There are more parks and wildlife than high rises. For those who truly appreciate the outdoors, it’s a perfect place to vacation!
Drive down the famous Highway A1A to get to Juno Beach Pier, next to Juno Beach Park. The area is open to the public twelve months of the year and gives everyone access to the bountiful Atlantic Ocean. While the pier is open 365 days a year, the hours differ from March 1 to October 31 (sunrise to sunset) and November 1 to February 28 (hours vary depending on the day). There is a small fee to access the pier: $1 for spectators; $2 for kids under 12 years old that want to fish; $4 for anyone over 12 years old fishing from the pier.
The pier reaches 990-feet out into the ocean and has a deck at the end for additional space. Along the pier there are two spots that offer shade and four fish cleaning tables provided for spectators and anglers. Even if you’re not fishing, it’s a great place to take a stroll, take in the views, and watch the sunrise.
If you’re visiting the area and decide an impromptu fishing excursion without any gear, the pier house will have what you need! Rent a pole for $15/day and purchase all the bait and tackle you need. There’s also a concession stand for snacks and drinks. You can plan on spending the whole day fishing the pier! Just make sure you bring along your sunscreen and camera.
Anglers fishing from the pier will find a wide range of game species tugging on the other end of the line. Depending on time of year, and where you fish on the pier, anglers could see a variety of species. Near the beginning of the pier, expect to see snook, trout, whiting, redfish, and croakers. Around the middle section anglers tend to catch pompano, bluefish, spanish mackerel, and permit. Once you get to the end of the pier, and the deeper waters, you have the opportunity to catch cobia, king mackerel, jack crevalles, and even sharks. There’s no doubt about it, fishing from Juno Beach Pier is a great day for anglers, bad day for the fish!
Just down the street is the Loggerhead Marinelife Center, an organization that manages the pier as well. Your family can learn about the importance of sea turtle conservation efforts along the Florida Coast. Your trip to Juno Beach can be educational and exciting!
If you prefer to fish from a boat, check out these local professional charter captains. They’ll bring all the gear you need and can take you where the fish are biting. Your family will have the trip of a lifetime and a cooler full of fish in no time at all.
Whether you’re fishing from the Juno Beach Pier, shoreline, or a boat, we can guarantee a great day of making memories!
