Scouting Around Palm Beach/Martin County Area

     The snook bite has been red hot in the surf along Jensen Beach and there are big jacks around as well. Whiting and croaker are always in the mix, too, and make excellent table fare.
     In the Indian River, flounder are being caught on the east side. Fish around bait schools and you should have plenty of success. The snook action has also been very good, and there are a lot of small tarpon showing up around the bridges.
     The snook fishing has been great around the Juno Beach Pier and at Jupiter’s beaches. There are also tarpon on the beach.
     Snook are everywhere in the Intracoastal Waterway in and around Jupiter, and there are snapper and sand perch around structure. You’ll also find jacks anywhere there’s bait. Fishing the seawalls first thing in the morning is always a good idea.
     Snook and tarpon have made their way out of the Lake Worth Inlet and are now being caught in the surf along Palm Beach. There are jacks in the mix as well.
     Tarpon, snook, jacks, permit and mangrove snapper are all being caught in the surf around the Boynton Beach Inlet. The flats around the inlet are also holding permit, tarpon and a few bonefish.
     Those fishing the Intracoastal in central and southern Palm Beach County are catching snook and tarpon. There’s great action at the bridges but they can be caught throughout the Intracoastal.

     If you’re on the water early – at first light – you can catch a good number of bass before the bite turns off in mid to late morning. You definitely want to fish the outside edges for the best numbers.
     Skilled anglers are having success with both live shiners and artificial lures.
     Guides are reporting between 30 and 40 catches on morning trips, with some of the biggest bass weighing about 5 pounds.
