Scouting Around - Palm Beach/Martin County Area


     The surf fishing has been a little slow due to the windy conditions, but bluefish, Spanish mackerel, jacks and whiting are all being caught along Jensen Beach.
     Trout and redfish are being hooked throughout the Indian River, and pompano are chewing in clean/blue water. Your best bet is to look south of the Stuart Causeway.
     Snook are still holding at the bridges, but keep in mind that the season is closed.
     Pompano, Spanish mackerel and bluefish are being caught along Jupiter’s beaches as well, especially when the tide is a little higher.
     Snook can be caught at the bridges of the Intracoastal Waterway at night, and jacks, pompano and croaker are also being reported. Big numbers are ladyfish are being caught from Marker 44 to 40. Ladyfish aren’t edible, but they’ll put up a good fight and are fun to catch.
     Spanish mackerel and bluefish, along with jacks, are biting in the surf along Palm Beach.
     The best Intracoastal action in central and southern Palm Beach County has been snook at the bridges and docks, along with small snapper and jacks. The best reports are from those fishing at night.


     There’s a good bass bite in Lake Okeechobee this week. Fish up to 7 pounds were reported, and the best spot to target them is the outside edges and back in the grass – if the wind will allow you to hold those areas.
     Live shiners still get the nod over artificial lures, although a skilled angler can have success either way.
