Palm Beach Report

If you’re on the hunt for whiting and croaker along the beaches of the Treasure Coast, remember: pitch your rod; don’t cast.
In the Indian River, get out there early. After 9:30 a.m., you’ll be out of luck. You should find trout and redfish and maybe some ladyfish and jacks in the deeper water (3 to 5 feet). But, just as with the offshore bite, the winds have led to some reduction in activity.
At the bridges, anglers are snaring their fair share of black drum and snapper.
There’s no shortage of croaker and snook on Jupiter’s beaches either.

The early-morning bass bite is still good on Lake Okeechobee. Anglers getting out on the water before sun-up are catching good numbers, but there is a significant drop off once it starts heating up. The action is all but gone by about 10 a.m.
Most guides are helping their clients land two to three dozen bass on morning trips, which are up to four hours. Some of the largest bass reported this week were in the 5-pound range.
The best fishing is still along the outside edges and back in the grass. This gets a little more challenging during windy conditions, but that hasn’t been an issue this week and typically isn’t this time of year.
