Scouting Around Palm Beach/Martin County Area

     Bluefish, jacks, whiting, pompano and Spanish mackerel are all being caught in the surf along Jensen Beach. The fish are biting throughout the day, and cut baits are working best.
     Those fishing in the Indian River are loading up on redfish. Big numbers are being caught in the shallow water (2 feet) on the west side from County Line Road and north.
     Spanish mackerel, pompano and bluefish are chewing in the morning and during high tide along the beaches of Jupiter.
     Snook are holding around bridges and around dock lights (at night) in the Intracoastal Waterway in the Jupiter area, but also throughout Palm Beach County. Jacks, ladyfish and big croaker are also chewing. Shrimp seems to be the bait of choice.
     Jacks, ladyfish and the occasional Spanish mackerel and bluefish are being caught in the surf along Palm Beach. There seem to be fish around all day, but your best bet is getting out early and during the higher tide.
     The action in the Intracoastal in central and southern Palm Beach County hasn’t changed much. Snook and snapper are holding at the bridges and near structure. The night bite is best.
     Jacks are being caught from shore in Boynton Beach and are also thick at the north jetty of the Boynton Beach Inlet, along with mangrove snapper. Tarpon have also been spotted rolling around the inlet and in the Intracoastal. A few kingfish were caught in the flats of the Intracoastal, too.

     Fishing the outside edges of Lake Okeechobee has been great for catching big numbers of bass. If you can get back in the grass, that is productive as well.
     Several bass over 6 pounds were reported this week, and live shiners still get the edge over artificial lures. You can have success either way, however.
     Anglers fishing the southern part of the lake are reporting good action around East Wall.
