Scouting Around Palm Beach /Martin County Area

     The beach fishing has been very good along the Treasure Coast this week. Whiting and croaker have been biting, especially near Walton’s Rock. There’s also a great snook bite in the trough along the surf’s edge. The best action is, as you’d expect, first thing in the morning and during higher tides.
     The tripletail action is red hot in the Indian River. Not only are there big numbers being caught, but also big fish! It seems that the best fishing is around the channel markers north of the Jensen Causeway.
     Snook are biting anywhere there is bait or structure, and there’s a good tarpon bite early in the morning. You’ll also find huge jacks anywhere there’s bait, and mangrove snapper are chewing near the bridges.
     There are plenty of snook in the surf along Jupiter, and they are also being snagged in the inlet. Bluefish and Spanish mackerel are also being caught along the beaches and in the Jupiter Inlet.
     Those fishing the Intracoastal Waterway in Jupiter are hooking snook, jacks, tarpon and lane snapper. You can target them around bridges, but they are definitely on the move – you can find them just about anywhere as they make their way toward the inlet.
     Snook and jacks are being caught in the surf along Palm Beach and also in the Lake Worth (Palm Beach) Inlet.
     Snook and jacks are also chewing in the Intracoastal in and around Palm Beach, and tarpon can be found early in the morning. Small snapper are holding near bridges, docks and seawalls at night.
     Snook, tarpon, bonefish and croaker are all being reported in the surf along Boynton Beach. The snook action is best early in the morning.
     Fishing in the Boynton Beach Inlet has been great for catching snapper, jacks, tarpon, snook and permit.
     In the Intracoastal, tarpon are rolling in the channel, and sheepshead and sand perch are chewing during the day. At night, snook and tarpon are being hooked around the bridges.

     The offshore bass bite is good at Lake Okeechobee right now. The best time to be on the water is first light until 11 a.m.Live shiners and artificial lures are both working well.
    There’s plenty of bait to be found around the offshore islands, and you can bet there are large bass also in the area just waiting to pounce. If you find these bait schools, you most likely also found bass.
