At the Lake Worth Inlet and along the beaches in the Palm Beach area there have been tarpon, permit and jack crevalle. Using light tackle, they are hitting shrimp and small live baits.
North of the Lake Worth Pier, from Kreusler to Phipps Ocean Park, there has been a good pompano bite with fish up to four pounds being caught on Doc’s Goofy Jigs and live sand fleas.
Fishing for largemouth bass has been a bit tough recently with the cool weather, but anglers are still catching a few using live shiners.
The speckled perch bite, however, has been fantastic.
For both, the Monkey Box area has been a recent hot spot.
Fishing for sunshine bass and speckled perch should pick up with the cold weather in the lake and adjacent canals. Live shad, shiners and Missouri minnows will be best
