Though the forecasted rough seas will likely put a damper on it this weekend, the pompano fishing has been excellent in Hobe Sound recently.
Anglers using long rods to reach the outside trough and using fish bites, clams and live sand fleas are having a blast catching these delicious fish.
The relief bridges along the Stuart and Jensen Causeways have been hot spots recently for pompano, big sheepshead and redfish. Live shrimp on jigs has been working best.
Though the surf fishing for pompano will cool off this weekend, fishing for them at the Juno Pier should still be good.
The main focus will be on getting out past the churned up water line and into the greenish “pompano” water.
Anglers looking to avoid the rough seas, but still wanting to get their fix this weekend should check out the Intracoastal Waterway.
Using live shrimp, ladyfish, jack crevalle and mangrove snapper are being caught.
Fishing for snook around pilings of the Loxahatchee River Bridge could be a good call this weekend as well.
With the cooler temps and the bridge pilings holding heat, snook will sometimes congregate around them.
The beaches from the Lake Worth Pier north to around Sloan’s Curve have had a good pompano bite lately with them hitting on Goofy Jigs and pompano.
Anglers fishing off Lantana Public Beach have reported catching sheepshead using live shrimp and sand fleas.
The sheepshead bite has also been good at the Boynton Inlet using crabs on an incoming tide.
Jetty fishermen are also reporting catching a few snook, jack crevalle, bluefish and croaker.
Fishing at the Lantana Bridge, anglers are catching sheepshead and drum on clam strips and live crabs and a few redfish using cut mullet.
Out on the lake, the speckled perch bite is still really good.
