Scouting Around Palm Beach/Martin County Area

 Along the beaches in Jensen Beach the croaker, whiting and snook bite has been excellent.
Fishbites has been a can’t miss bait for catching both whiting and croaker.
Though good table fare in their own right, a small whiting or croaker also makes very good snook bait.
Hooked behind the dorsal fin and using a 50-pound leader with 8.0 circle hook is an excellent set up for catching snook off the beach.
Several permit in the 20-pound range have also recently been caught off the beach in the area.
In the St. Lucie River one day was pronounced “Jack Attack Tuesday” by one local after the number of jack crevalle being caught.
Hitting just about anything and outcompeting snook, fish in the 15-pound plus range have been cruising the docks and seawalls creating ridiculous fun for anglers looking for a fight.
The snook bite is still excellent, but with the jack crevalle hitting hard it’s not as easy to get one on the line.
Threadfins and sardines are working well for snook.
In Jupiter, pompano fishing isn’t quite as amazing as it has been the last few weeks, but it’s still decent.
Anglers using Fishbites combined with clams are getting good results with the best action being found from Jupiter Island to Hobe Sound.
In the Boynton Beach area, there has been a pretty good concentration of tarpon, some in 120-pound range, hanging around the sandbar off the Boynton Inlet all the way down to the public beach.
Also around the inlet has been a good number of snook.
Anglers fishing off the Lantana Bridge say the jack crevalle bite has been excellent. Fishing with cut sardines, fish over 20 pounds are being caught.
