Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area

Its Thanksgiving afternoon and it is nice to be able to report that some fish made it to the cooler this morning. I started at dawn at Middle Cove Beach and the water was a very dirty brown. Unlike this past week where the water was dirtier to the south , as I moved down A1A, it started to clean up a bit. My son Randy and I ended up at Stuart beach where there was no brown water and the first cast with a sand flea scented Fishbite produced a 13 inch croaker. The bite wasnt off the hook for the next two hours but we ended up catching and releasing seven pompano from 8 to 10 inches long, keeping a 15 incher, and putting six big whitng in the cooler also.There was other action also with blue runners and jacks and in the end it was nice just to see the rods bending. Clam strips and Fishbites accounted for all of the activity. Seeing the blue runners and jacks figure into the mix is a good sign because if these species are showing there is some bait in the area and that will get our early winter surf fishing back on track. Look for some increased action with pompano, bluefish, spanish mackerel ,whitng, and croakers in the upcoming days.Find any trace of cleaner green water and there should some of these species willing to take your baits. Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend and get out to the beach.Good luck and catch em up
