Scouting Around Palm Beach/Martin County Area


Though the cobia fishing has backed off this past week along the beaches in the Jensen area it’s never a bad idea to take a look if the water clarity is decent and they can be spotted.
Some anglers are reporting good luck fishing for croakers. Walking the beaches using a light rod and a jig with shrimp has produced good results.
The pompano fishing has been somewhat lackluster the past week along the beaches, but decent in the river. Working the ‘humps’ just outside the channel north of the Jensen Causeway has produced good results.
Fishing for snook has been good around Nettles Island with one angler catching 74 fish and two slot-sized keepers.
In the Jupiter area, the action along the beaches has been slow with whiting and croaker being caught near the pier on pieces of shrimp.
In the Intracoastal and the Loxahatchee River there have been some jack crevalle and ladyfish being landed.
In the Boynton Beach area, surf anglers have reported catching a few bonefish up to 7 pounds as well as croaker on live shrimp.
Fishing for small permit along the beaches around Briny Breezes and Boynton Beach has produced good results.
Bluefish have been hitting spoons early in the morning and cut mullet during the afternoon a half mile north up the beach from Boynton Inlet. Anglers have reported catching mangrove snapper, small snook and some croaker while fishing the area during outgoing tides.
There have been small sharks around the channels near Daymarker # 45 just north of the inlet.
Guides have reported catches of snook, small tarpon, mangrove snapper and sheepshead fishing in the canals and docks both north and south of the inlet.
Lantana bridge anglers continue to catch sheepshead using crabs and sand fleas. Night anglers have been catching sand perch, ladyfish and a few bluefish using cut shrimp.


On the lake the fishing has been consistent with live shiner still being the best bet for landing some nice-sized bass.
