Scouting Around Palm Beach/Martin County

     There are a lot of whiting and big croaker in the surf along Jensen Beach, along with some pompano. The Spanish mackerel bite has picked up, and bigger numbers of snook are being spotted along the beach and in the St. Lucie Inlet.
     The redfish and snook action is red hot in the Indian River! Most of the reds are being caught on the west side of the river and the majority are slot-size. Snook can almost always be found at bridges and docks, but they are definitely starting to move around and are now showing up in the flats as well.
     Anglers fishing the beaches of Jupiter are reporting pompano and snook, as well as a few bluefish. Good numbers of snook are also holding in the Jupiter Inlet.
     Snook and small snapper are being caught around the bridges of the Intracoastal Waterway in the Jupiter area, and much like in the Treasure coast, the snook are beginning to move and can be found throughout the ICW.
     Other than snook and small snapper, jacks and tarpon are also being caught in the Intracoastal throughout central and southern Palm Beach County at night.
     Fishing in the surf along Boynton Beach has produced permit, snook, snapper and a few tarpon. The best action seems to be off the north jetty of the Boynton Beach Inlet.    

     The weather has been great at Lake Okeechobee this week and so has the fishing. Big numbers of bass were reeled in, including a couple reports of 7-pounders. The bite is decent throughout the day, but the best action is still at first light and in the early-morning hours.
     The bass are moving around quite a bit, but your best bet remains along the outside edges and back in the grass. Artificial lures have been effective, but live shiners are the preferred bait at this point.
