Scouting Around Palm Beach/Martin County Area

     Strong winds and poor conditions have also rendered the surf fishing non-existent along Jensen Beach and much of the Treasure Coast. However, the snook fishing has been excellent in the Indian River over the past few days, and the action should remain hot in the near future. The east side of the river has been best, but snook are also being caught around bridges. Tarpon and jacks are also in the mix, but be sure to throw big baits that can cut through the heavy winds that are still plaguing the area.
     Spanish mackerel, bluefish and jacks are all chewing in the surf along Jupiter.
     In the Intracoastal Waterway, jacks and snook are being caught around the bridges. Snook can also be caught around dock lights at night. A few tarpon were also reported this week.
Jacks, bluefish and ladyfish have all been caught in the surf along Palm Beach this week. There haven’t been a lot of anglers out there, so the reports are few and far between, but there are definitely fish moving through the area.
     Fishing the jetties around the Boynton Beach Inlet has been great for catching mangrove snapper, snook and cobia. There are also Spanish mackerel and bluefish cruising the beach in the morning.
     Those fishing the Intracoastal in central and southern Palm Beach County are reporting mutton snapper, jacks, ladyfish and snook around the channel edges. Jacks are also being caught around bridges, along with snook, mangrove snapper, bluefish, ladyfish and tarpon.

     It has been a rough week of fishing on Lake Okeechobee. Weather hasn’t been ideal, but bass are still being caught.
     The offshore islands and outside grass lines are still the best places to catch fish. The early-morning hours are still the best time to be on the water, but the bite is now lasting into the late morning and early afternoon. The night-time action has been pretty good, too.
     Live shiners are the bait of choice, but artificial lures are certainly getting the job done as well.
