The beaches of the Treasure Coast are loaded with whiting and croaker, and the pompano bite heats up at the top of the incoming tide and during the first of the outgoing tide.
Snook are making a better presence in the Indian River. While they can always be found around bridges and docks, especially at night, they are now being caught in the flats as well. As the water continues to warm up, so should the snook bite.
Big trout are being caught on the east side of the river.
Pompano are biting on the beaches of Jupiter when the water is choppy.
The snook action has been excellent in the Intracoastal Waterway and Loxahatchee River, and there are ladyfish in the Intracoastal as well.
The only consistent action on the beaches or in the Intracoastal for central and southern Palm Beach County this week has been jacks. You can always try your luck targeting snook around the bridges of the Intracoastal at night
It has been another solid week for bass fishing on Lake Okeechobee, especially for those using live shiners. Artificial lures are still productive, but shiners are working far better at this time.
Good numbers of bass are being caught, and it’s not uncommon to reel in a fish weighing more than 5 pounds.
The best bite is still along the outside edges and back in the grass and, fortunately, is lasting throughout the day. However, as it starts to warm up, the window will close, and you’ll want to be out on the water early in the morning.courtesy of The Palm Beach Post
