Palm Beach Report

Snook are biting all along the beaches of the Treasure Coast. They are chasing pilchards. Pitch your bait into the trough and wait them the strike. There are plenty of tarpon around as well. Snook and tarpon are also chewing in the St. Lucie Inlet.
Snook are also being caught throughout the day in the Indian River. Black drum and sheepshead are being snagged in the river near the Roosevelt Bridge. Trout and redfish are biting on both the east and west side of the river.
The tarpon action has been excellent throughout the day at Jupiter’s beaches. Snook are also thick in the surf as well as in the Jupiter Inlet.
Snook are tarpon are showing up on the beaches in Palm Beach as well. The best action is in the morning, but there have also been some nice catches in the late morning and afternoon.
Mangrove snapper and sheepshead have been caught in the Intracoastal Waterway around the Lantana Bridge.
Big schools of snook and several large tarpon have been spotted in the Boynton Beach Inlet, and are pouncing on the baitfish that are holding both north and south of the inlet.

Some nice permit have also been reported along the beaches but are too deep to catch from the shore. They seem to be in about 20 feet of water.

The bass fishing has been good on Lake Okeechobee. Te best bite is definitely early in the morning, and it tapers off by 10 a.m. However, it is not uncommon to catch 30 bass before the action stops.
The bass are beginning to move off the grassline chasing bait, so some of the best fishing is actually out in open water now. Live shiners and artificial lures are both working well.
Bluegill are still being caught outside the grassline.
