Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
I hope everyone who had planned on hitting the beach this weekend carried through with your outing. The weather was beautiful, surf was calm and clean, and the fish made a good showing. I fished today with my son Randy and we caught blue runners, ladyfish, jacks, part of a bluefish, and a limit catch of pompano. We fished at Middle Cove and some other anglers like Nelson Paula , who was fising north of me had a nice catch of pompano and whiting. Randy actually had a decent bluefish on at one point but unfortunately a large spinner shark decided to have him for lunch. I haven't heard from anyone else this evening but with the cleaner water settling in I am pretty positive that folks fishing at other locations had simillar results. The pompano bite has been better on the falling tide, 1-2 hours after the high mark. Distance is still the main factor in getting the bites, so being able to cast 70 to 100 yards from the edge of the surf is the key to success. EZ Flea Fishbites, clam strips, and natural sand fleas all caught fish today. It looks like a nice week as far as weather and surf conditions so get out and take advantage of this great fishing.
