The beach fishing has been pretty slow, as the weather conditions have been anything but ideal. However, there are still some anglers getting out, and they are catching some fish.
Along Jensen Beach, bluefish and Spanish mackerel are biting in the surf.
In the Indian River, the redfish action is still red hot around docks on the west side. Good numbers and sizes are being caught. In fact, locals are calling this the best redfish bite in years!
Snook are still hitting jigs around the bridges at night and on the outgoing tide. Black drum and sheepshead are also being caught.
Jacks and ladyfish have been caught from the beaches in Jupiter this week, and they’re also being reported in the Intracoastal Waterway and Loxahatchee River, along with the occasional pompano. There are always snook around the bridges at night as well.
Jacks and bluefish were reported in the surf in Palm Beach the past few days, and Spanish mackerel have also been spotted.
In the Intracoastal, snook are being caught around the bridges at night throughout central and southern Palm Beach County. Jacks, bluefish and Spanish mackerel are also being hooked around the bridges.
Mangrove snapper and bluefish are holding near the jetty at the Boynton Beach Inlet.
The recent cool fronts have had a positive impact on the bass fishing at Lake Okeechobee. Bigger fish were reported this week, and the numbers have also picked up. The outside edge and back in the grass are still the best places to target.
Artificial lures and live shiners are both working extremely well, with shiners still getting the slight edge.
East Wall and West Wall have been productive spots this week, especially when the wind lies down.
