Scouting Around - West Palm /Martin County Area

     Those fishing from the shore along Jensen Beach are catching whiting, croaker, bluefish and Spanish mackerel. For the best results, focus on higher tides, but the fish are really around throughout the day. Pompano are being caught on the long cast.
     In the Indian River, the mosquito ditches on the east side have been great for trout, and redfish are being snagged on the west side.
     The snook fishing around the bridges has been on fire, and good numbers of black drum and sheepshead are also being caught in those spots.
     Pompano, bluefish, jacks and a few Spanish mackerel were all caught in the surf along Jupiter. Snook are chewing in the inlet and also in the Intracoastal Waterway near bridges and structure, especially at night. Snapper and jacks are also in the mix.
     Bluefish and jacks are chewing along Palm Beach and also in the Intracoastal. Resident snook are also biting near bridges and dock lights at night in the Intracoastal.
     Bass up to 6 pounds were reported along the outside edges and back in the grass this week. It has been easier to hold these spots since the wind lied down a bit.
     Live shiners continue to work better than artificial lures, but a skilled angler can and will have success either way.
     As good as the bite has been, look for it to increase dramatically once the water cools a bit in the coming weeks.
