Palm Beach Report

     REMINDER: Snook season closes on Sunday.
     Whiting, croaker and jacks are being caught from the beach throughout the day along the Treasure Coast. The snook bite has also improved during higher tides and tarpon are also showing up.
     Flounder are still biting in the Indian River, which is a bit rare for this time of year. For best results, work a shrimp along the bottom.
     The bridges are holding keeper-size snapper, ladyfish, black drum, sheepshead and, of course, snook at night. Tarpon have also been spotted.
     Anglers targeting trout are finding them around Bear Point.
     There are good numbers of snook at the beach in Jupiter and around the inlet. The bite is good all day and night. Tarpon have also been reported when the water is calm.
     Jacks up to 30 pounds are also being hooked.
     There haven’t been too many anglers fishing in the Intracoastal Waterway this week, but there are plenty of jacks around, and snook are being caught at the bridges. There are also tarpon in the mix.
     This is the case not only in and around Jupiter, but throughout central and southern Palm Beach County as well. Mangrove snapper are also being caught around bridges during the day.

     It’s an early bite for anglers fishing for bass on Lake Okeechobee. You definitely want to be out on the water before sunrise, and the action is all but over by noon. Charter guides are still reporting up to 40 bass on a four-hour morning trip.
     The best bite is on the offshore islands. It has slowed back in the grass and along the outside edges.
    Live shiners are artificial lures are working equally well at this point.
     Those targeting bluegill are having success throwing crickets. The fish are out there, but they have been a bit tricky to find.
