Scouting Around Palm Beach/Martin County Area

     Jacks, snook, whiting and croaker are all being caught in the surf along Jensen Beach. Tarpon are also in the mix. Early morning and evening have the most productive, but the fish are there throughout the day.
     Big trout are biting in the Indian River north of the powerplant. Tripletail are holding near the pilings, and the snook fishing has been excellent around the inlets and docks.
     Those targeting tarpon are having success around Little Mid Creek and Big Mud Creek.
     The snook fishing has been good along the beaches of Jupiter and also in the inlet. Anglers are gearing up, as snook season opens on Sept. 1.
                               There haven’t been many reports from in the Intracoastal Waterway this week, but snook are holding near the Jupiter Inlet and they can be found cruising through the flats. Jacks are always around as well, along with a few smaller tarpon.
     Fishing the bridges and dock lights at night is always fun, too.
     A few snook and jacks were reported in the surf along Boynton Beach, but the best action is around the jetty at the Boynton Beach Inlet. Tarpon have also been spotted in this area and are are rolling early in the morning through the Intracoastal in the Boynton Beach area.
     At the bridges, anglers are catching snook, tarpon and moonfish at night, along with small snapper.

     Good numbers of bass, including a few large fish, were being caught on the south end of Lake Okeechobee this week. The best spots are still the offshore islands, and that should be the case for the next month or so. At that point, they will begin moving toward spawning areas.
     You still want to get out on the water early in the morning for best results. Once the sun rises and the temperature heats up, the bite cools down…tremendously!
     Live shiners and artificial lures are both working well. If you opt for artificials, try topwater lures, as they seem to be the most effective at this point.
     In addition to bass, anglers are also catching a good number of crappie, bluegill and catfish.
