Anyone fishing Jupiter from the beach for Snook?

Planning on heading over to Jupiter, for a week the last part of June. Anyone one had any success with the Live Target Croaker lure?
Thanks and regards

    Yea buddy. I love Live Target. There swimming mullet and croaker are big snook baits. Fish near the inlet on a good out going tide. Sometimes a Decent SE wind with a good outgoing tide will push bait and fish in the south jetti. Bouncing a DOA bait buster is a great bait as well. Go have at it man

    Dang, good looking lure. Of course they have to catch a fisherman before they can catch a fish..
    I think this is the best time of year for beach snookin. My  biggest was around high noon on a whiting rig, but always had success once the sun starts to set and they are backlit and you can sight cast them with your croaker or a finger mullet imitator. If the weather get snotty then I switch to a white jig. I generally fished on the south end of Hobe Sound beach as opposed to near Jupiter inlet.

    I agree with how lures catch us fishermen. Lol

    Took a ride to Hobe Sound last year, didn't get to fish, maybe give it a try this year. Thanks for your reply.

    I think all those lures would work great on the beach. If you notice your getting fish following the boats up to the shore but not eating switch it up to something else and maybe smaller.
