Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
My son Randy and I fished at Dollmans Beach today and managed to put some nice whiting in the cooler along with catching and releasing some small palometa. Fishbites were the ticket today and should be your go-to bait for the near future as this is the time of year when live shrimp become tough to get. The water today was not the clear green that was along our area yesterday, when Randy was able to find some great catch-and-release snook fishing at Dollmans right around high tide. Live majorras were the ticket for success on the snook. Reports that I received when I was was gone last week had some some folks catching a few pompano and jacks at Santa Lucea and Tiger Shores. The weather looks good this week and live bait school schools that were in the Sebastian and Vero Beach areas last week should be headed our way . Its time to bring your cast net and sabiki rigs to the beach with you as tarpon, jacks, and snook will be targeting these baits. Having some in a bucket with an aerator will put you in a position to bend a rod with those species. A CP Rig or a sinker slide bottom rig will be the rigs to use during the day with these live baits. I will be fishing Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, and will post all results on those evenings. Good luck this week and catch em up.
