Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
Pompano, whiting, croaker, jacks, snook, ladyfish, blue runners, and bonefish all made the catch list along our beaches in the last six days. I have been on the sidelines for this period due to a health issue but the reports from family members and friends were all good. Ron Robinson and a neighbor had a limit of pompano late last week from the public beach at Bridge Road in Hobe Sound using fishbites and sandfleas. Other anglers fishing near Ron caught pompano and blue runners also. My son Randy fished with his daughters, Kaitlyn and Ashley, and his in laws, Barry and Bonnie Rashkin, and they put together a nice catch of big whiting from Dollmans Beachside over the weekend. Water clarity was good at that location and all of their fish were caught in the first trough on fishbites and cut shrimp. Randy stopped at Tiger Shores yesterday morning and spoke with a fellow fisherman who told him of a snook bite that went on there at dawn. He ended up at Dollmans and had another nice catch of whiting and croaker fishing the first trough. The best bite on these tasty fish has been the hour before high tide up to two hours after. I talked to another friend who fished Middle Cove and Hobe Sound over the weekend and he caught blue runners, jacks and bonefish. There was a nice spread of bait schools along our entire area so we will start seeing more and more surface activity with jacks, snook, and tarpon. The summertime surf bite is definitely on - so head out and bend a rod. Hopefully I will be back in the game by the weekend and will be providing more reports during the week. Good luck this week and catch em up.
