Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
Things are starting to develop along our local beaches. Pompano, whiting, and bluefish are all showing up in the daily catches and this should only get better. Diversity was the key word on Wednesday when my son Randy, long-time friend Chuck, and myself caught pompano, whiting, sail catfish, bonnet head shark, sheepshead, blue runners, jacks, palometa, bluefish and one snook. The location was Tiger Shores Beach and the successful baits were sand flea scented Fishbites, clam strips, and cut mullet for the bluefish. I fished Stuart Beach today and caught pompano, big whiting, and bluefish. The water had more green to it than the dirty brown color we have had for the past month and that’s the key to finding the action right now. I highly recommend checking the color of the water before you unload all of your gear and look at a few spots before you set up. Tiger Shores, Stuart Beach, and Santa Lucea have had some decent water the past three days and I plan on hitting one of those spots tomorrow morning. EZ Flea Fishbites, clam strips, and cut mullet or jacks will all get you some activity. High tide will be in the 8 - 9 am time frame so target the morning to increase your chances. The north to northeast winds predicted this weekend should be moving more schools of our winter species into the area.
