Scouting Around Palm Beach/Martin County Area

The beaches around Jensen Beach are absolute alive right now with baitfish.               There are minnows, pilchards and some good-sized schools of mullet moving through.
As a result, the fishing for snook, jack crevalle, tarpon, croaker and whiting has been outstanding.
Best bets are using live bait, but DOA lures and, especially, LIVETARGET lures have been fantastic during this run.
With the calm winds and seas, the fly fishing guys are getting in on the action on the beaches as well.
In the Jupiter area, snook are still biting around the inlet and up into the Loxahatchee River and the Intracoastal Waterway. Remember it’s catch and release only.
There's large snook moving around the north jetty of the Boynton Inlet and tarpon over the sandbar. There has been plenty of bait around the inlet such as cigar minnows, pilchards, goggle eyes and sardines.
Small threadfin herring have been schooling up around the Lantana Bridge. Anglers have caught jacks, snook, barracuda, and mangrove snapper using the live herring.


The bass bite on the lake is very similar to last week.
Best are still early mornings before 10 a.m. and late afternoons from 6 p.m. to dark.
Shiners are working very well.
If using artificial it’s still time dependent with spinnerbaits and swim jigs have been working best in the mornings and flipping jigs and beaver in the late afternoons.
The bluegilll bite is holding steady with crickets and worms the way to go.
The river has cleaned up quite a bit so there are more fish being caught up that way recently.
