Scouting Around Palm Beach/Martin County Area

Bluefish, whiting and big croaker are all being caught in the surf along Jensen Beach.
In the Indian River, black drum, sheepshead and snook are all being caught around the bridges. Night time is always best for snook. The west side of the river is still loaded with redfish, especially north of Walton Road.
A few bluefish have been caught from the beaches in Jupiter, and they are also holding at the Jupiter Inlet along with redfish.
Ladyfish, bluefish and Spanish mackerel are all being caught in the Intracoastal Waterway in the Jupiter area, and snook and redfish are biting near the bridges. A few pompano were also reported in the flats, especially near Marker 42.
Bluefish and jacks are the best bet for those fishing in the surf along Palm Beach and Boynton Beach.
Anglers fishing the Intracoastal in central and southern Palm Beach County are catching snook at the bridges at night, along with croaker and a few pompano. Sheepshead are holding near seawalls and pilings.
They’re catching big numbers of bass on Lake Okeechobee right now, and many of them are in the 3- to 6-pound range. Several over 6 pounds were also reported this week.
The water level is over 14 feet, so the entire like is accessible and fishable. Some of the hot spots have been East Wall, Ritta Island, Pelican Bay and Bay bottom.
Live shiners are working better than artificial lures, but you can definitely have plenty of success either way. If you do opt for artificial lures, try pitching them toward reed heads.
