Scouting Around - Palm Beach / Martin County Area

   Pompano are being caught in the surf along Jensen Beach, especially at the peak of high tide. Whiting and croaker are also biting throughout the day.
   In the Indian River, the snook bite has been incredible around the bridges, along with black drum, sheepshead and snapper. Redfish seem to be everywhere as well. Locals say it is the best redfish action they've seen in several years.
   Spanish mackerel are holding along the beaches in Jupiter, along with jacks and bluefish.
   Jacks, bluefish, snapper, ladyfish and snook are also being caught around the bridges of the Intracoastal Waterway and in the flats near Marker 42.

   The fishing continues to improve on Lake Okeechobee. Good numbers of bass were caught this week, with the best action coming along the outside edges and back in the grass. Good-size fish were also caught, with many bass over 5 pounds being reeled in.
   While skilled anglers are having success with artificial lures, live shiners are still working better at this point. While the best bite is still early in the morning, you can definitely catch bass throughout the day now.
