Scouting Around Palm Beach/Martin County Area


Along the beaches around Jensen Beach there has been a lot of cool water and weeds recently.
That has put a real damper on fishing.
When it clears, however, the whiting bite has been excellent.
One angler had been catching over 50 a day, before the recent cool water and weeds slowed things down.
The snook bite is still good with the inlets being the spot. Best bets are early mornings until about an hour or two after sunrise. After that the heat pretty much shuts the bite down.
Though the wind is forecast to back off, several anglers have reported finding great protection from the recent strong gusts as well as decent action on jack crevalle and small tarpon in the north and south fork of the St. Lucie River.
Along the beaches in Jupiter the snook bite is still holding steady.

Jack crevalle are also biting as well as a few tarpon.
At the Boynton Inlet the snook bite is still good with the popular game fish hitting live bait.
There is still some tarpon action with best bets being to fish the outgoing tide using live bait.
Along the beach in the area there have been a few palometa caught.


The bass bite is still fantastic.
Best bets are early morning and late afternoons with different baits for both times.
In the mornings, spinnerbaits and swim jigs have been working best while in the afternoons flipping jigs and beavers are the way to go.
The bluegill bite is still good as well. Crickets and worms are still best.
