Palm Beach Report

     Cobia have been caught from the beach this week, although they are easier to hook from a boat. 

Good numbers of whiting and snook are on the beach as well, with the best action coming close to the St. Lucie Inlet. Snook, tarpon and big jacks are all chewing in the inlet.
     In the Indian River, there is a good bite on the west side, but only very early in the morning. Trout, redfish and big snook are all being caught.
     Black drum, sheepshead and snapper are all biting around the bridges, as are snook at night.
     Snook are chasing small bait fish along the beaches of Jupiter. There are also some croaker in the mix, but the best bite is around Hobe Sound.
     In the Intracoastal Waterway in northern and central Palm Beach County, snook are being caught at night around bridges and docks. Mangrove snapper are also biting near bridges.
     There are plenty of bait fish around the Boynton Beach Inlet, which has attracted several fish to the area. Mangrove snapper are being caught in the inlet, and snook remain active.
     Some large tarpon have been spotted rolling in the Intracoastal in Boynton Beach as well.

     If you’re going bass fishing on Lake Okeechobee, you better be on the water well before the sun comes up. Good numbers of bass are being caught before sunrise, but by 9:30-10 a.m., the bite turns off.
     Most of the bass are being caught back in the grass, and artificial lures seem to be working better than live shiners at this time.
