Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
Reports during the week showed a good snook bite but your chance of taking home a slot fish ends at 12 midnight on Wednesday, May 31st. On Monday, Jeff Smith, our fly fishing guru from Bass Pro Shops, landed two nice snook on a fly rod at Tiger Shores beach. We are entering into the time of year for the “fly-rodders” to get into some great action at the beach. If anyone needs new equipment or tips on catching fish from the beach on a fly rod , Jeff is the guy to see to get you outfitted. He will gladly share his great knowledge for fly-rodding in our area. Contact him at Bass Pro Shops, Port St Lucie. I also heard from Jerry Tenski who attended the seminar last Saturday. Jerry fished Monday morning at Bathtub Beach and was successful in landing a nice snook live-lining a small jack in the first trough. If you are going to target snook this weekend Tiger Shores, Santa Lucea, and Bathtub Beaches are good areas to try. The snook are staging for their summer spawn and the beaches closet to our inlets will be holding fish as they move to those spawning locations. Casting artificials early in the morning and then switching over to live baits like croakers, greenies, and pinfish as the day moves on should provide great snook action. Break out the Fishbites and cut shrimp and fish the first trough during the day to fill a cooler with tasty whiting and croaker.
