Scouting Around-Palm Beach/Stuart Area

     Whiting, croaker, jacks, bluefish and a few pompano are being caught in the surf along Jensen Beach. The best action is around the higher tides during early and mid-morning hours.
     There has been a great trout bite on the east side of the Indian River, and the redfish action is the best it has been in years. Fishing near the Stuart Causeway has been productive, but they’re also being caught around docks on the west side and around bridges. The bite should get even better once the water cools a bit.
     Flounder are being reported around bridges, but also in the grass flats and sandbars. Snook are also chewing near bridges, docks and other structure, especially at night.
     Bluefish, Spanish mackerel, big jacks and scattered pompano are being caught throughout the day from the beach in Jupiter.
     In the Intracoastal Waterway and Loxahatchee River, good numbers of mangrove snapper, jacks and sand perch are being hooked at the bridges. Snook are also being caught at night.
     Jacks and bluefish are being snagged from shore along Palm Beach. The action seems to be best early in the morning, but there are fish around throughout the day. More than likely, if there are bait schools in the area, you can count on the fish being there as well.
     Snook and snapper are biting around the bridges of the Intracoastal in central and southern Palm Beach County. As always, the best bite is at night.

     This has been a great week for catching bass on Lake Okeechobee. The water level is over 14 feet, so you can navigate the entire lake with no trouble; although the best action is along the outside edges and back in the grass.
     The bite really seems to be lasting throughout the day at this point, but early morning is still the best time to be out on the water. Live shiners are still working better than artificial lures.
     Good numbers of crappie are being caught in the rim canal as well.
