The snook fishing is great in the surf along the Treasure Coast, and permit and big jacks are also being caught. There are a few tarpon around as well.
Although the bite lasts throughout the day, the best action is around the higher tide.
Those fishing in the Indian River are reporting a lot of trout on the east side. The redfish numbers are down, but some nice fish are still being caught. Big jacks and mangrove snapper are chewing around the docks and sea walls.
Snook are really moving around now and be caught just about anywhere in the river.
Snook have made their way into the surf along Palm Beach as well, along with a few tarpon. Jacks are also active and seem to be there throughout the day.
Anglers fishing in the Intracoastal Waterway in central and southern Palm Beach County are still hooking snook at the bridges and dock lights at night, although they are moving toward the inlets as well. Small snapper and tarpon have also been hooked, and there are plenty of jacks around to keep you busy.
It was a good week for bass fishing on Lake Okeechobee. Yes, the window is closing so for best results, be on the water as early as possible – preferably at first light. There are still good numbers being caught early, and it does pick up around sunset as well.
Live shiners are working well, although skilled anglers are doing fine with artificial lures, too. While fishing the outside edges and back in the grass is always a good approach, there are bass being caught throughout the lake and rim canal.
