Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
A trip back to the beach today reinforces the great fishing that alot of anglers experienced yestaerday at various locations. I made a quick stop this morning at Stuart Beach and the wind shift to the North last night had the water pretty stirred up and somewhat off color. A steady push from the North will sometimes send the clean water in a southerly direction and that's what occured today. I ended up at the Bridge Road beach in Hobe Sound and found the clean green colored water that we had at Stuart yesterday. The action turned out to be better than yesterday as the first forty minutes of fishing produced two big jacks, two bluefish, and two nice pompano. After a bit of a lull for a short period of time the bite turned right back on and four more big pompano made their way into my cooler. I had my limit of nice pompano and at one point was only able to fish two rods because of the non-stop activity. Clam strips, EZ Flea and Orange Clam Fishbites all produced today. Plenty of 2 - 3 pound bluefish and jacks up to ten pounds were mixed in with the pompano. I watched a fellow angler just South of me throwing a silver spoon continually hook up with the jacks and bluefish. Its really too bad that the winds are going to put a temporary hold to this great fishing but its great to see the spread of fish that are in our area. We should be back at it early next week so get your gear ready. The key again today was being able to reach the pompano at 70 - 90 yards from the edge of the beach.
