Scouting Around Palm Beach/Marten County Area


Along the beaches in Jensen the whiting and croaker bite is still fairly consistent.
The snook and tarpon are also hitting with Bathtub Beach currently the spot for tarpon.
Live glass minnows are working well for the massive fighters.
In the river, around the spillways it’s been ‘game on’ for snook. They are feasting on the cichlids being flushed through.
Best bets are to use jigs or swimbaits. Remember it is illegal to fish with freshwater baits and it is catch and release only for snook.
In Jupiter, the fishing along the beaches for snook and jack crevalle has been excellent and at the pier anglers have been catching plenty of whiting and sand perch.
In the Loxahatchee River and the Intracoastal Waterway the action is still slow, but the water is definitely beginning to clear up.
In the Boynton Beach area there is still a lot of fresh water in the Intracoastal Waterway.
It’s been so concentrated at times that it’s killed many saltwater fish including mojarra, moonfish and barracuda.
Anglers fishing from the Lantana Bridge have not reported much action.
Inlet fisherman are catching a few jack crevalle.


Following several weeks of consistent rain, there has been a lot of water has been moving into the lake.
This has made the bass fishing a bit more challenging as the fish have been more scattered.
As far as live bait, versus artificial it’s been pretty even.
