The north wind has also made it challenging to fish from the beach this week, but if you time it right (and get a little lucky) you can find jacks, pompano, Spanish mackerel and bluefish up and down the coast.
The east side of the Indian River has been good for redfish and trout, especially in the little mosquito ditches. You really need to hug the east shoreline – which is easier said than done when the wind is cranking.
Snook are biting at night and around the bridges, and the best action is during the outgoing tide. There are also Spanish mackerel and bluefish at the bridges.
Snook and mangrove snapper are chewing around the bridges and other structure in the Intracoastal Waterway in Jupiter. There are also jacks in the area.
A few redfish have also been snagged close to the jetty near the Jupiter Inlet.
Through central and southern Palm Beach County, it has been snook and snapper around the Intracoastal bridges at night, along with a good number of jacks.
If you can get – and stay – there, the best bass fishing on Lake Okeechobee this week remains along the outside edges and back in the grass. It has been difficult because of the windy conditions, but those who succeeded, were rewarded with some nice fish – including a few over 6 pounds.
Live shiners are still working better than artificial lures, and the number of fish being caught has really increased. That number will only improve as we get into December and once the wind subsides.
