Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
It’s Saturday morning and I finally have a positive report to post. The water got rid of its brown color yesterday and some green cleaner water made its way to some of our beach accesses. I headed up to Middle Cove and fished the rising tide from 9 am to 1 pm and was lucky enough to put 2 pompano and whiting in the cooler while releasing a number of jacks. . Bluefish and were also present as they bit off 5 of my pompano rigs during the day. Anyone who wants to target the bluefish right now should have great success casting spoons in the early morning and late afternoon and switching over to cut bait like mullet or jacks for the middle of the day bite. I spoke with a friend of mine who also caught pompano yesterday at Tiger Shores and Bryn Mawr beaches. Today does not look like the weather is going to cooperate as we have rain and wind heading to the Treasure Coast from a disturbance to our south. Another cool front is forecast to move into the area tomorrow with a wind shift from the northwest. Next week looks pretty good as long as the cleaner water hangs around and the pompano, jacks, bluefish, mackerel, and whiting should be on the catch list. Sand Flea scented fishbites and clam strips accounted for all of my fish yesterday.
