Scouting Around Palm Beach/Martin County Area

     Big jacks, plenty of snook and some tarpon are being hooked in the surf along Jensen Beach.
     In the Indian River, tarpon are biting in the crossroads and near the inlet (although that will likely slow in the coming weeks). Snook can be found cruising the river and can always be targeted near structure, such as bridges, docks and seawalls. Tripletail are hanging around the channel markers.
     Snook are being caught along the beaches of Jupiter, and a few nice permit were also hooked.
     In the Intracoastal Waterway around Jupiter, snook can be found heading for the inlet and also around the bridges. Big numbers of keeper-size mangrove snapper are also holding near the bridges.
     Snook are biting in the surf along Boynton Beach and also in the inlet. Tarpon and mangrove snapper are also being caught around the inlet.
     Tarpon have been rolling between the Lake Worth and Boynton Beach inlets toward the Intracoastal bridges. Snook and tarpon are being caught around bridges as well.

     Fishing the offshore islands of Lake Okeechobee has been productive for targeting bass. Big numbers are being caught in the early-morning hours, especially by those who are on the water by first light.
     The window for catching is fairly small with the heat this time of year, so getting out early – and finishing early – really is the key! Live shiners and artificial lures are both working well.
