Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
Warm temperatures and fishable conditions look to be on tap this week along our local beaches. It is nice to be able to say that we are going to have a stretch of days where the wind forecast doesn't have the number 20 in it when it comes to predicted speeds. I fished on Monday at Bridge Road beach access in Hobe Sound and put some nice pompano in the cooler along with catching and releasing lots of bluefish. EZ Flea Fishbites caught all of the pompano while clam strips accounted for the bluefish. The bluefish bite was up and down the entire beach and the folks fishing cut mullet and fresh jack chunks were constantly hooking up. I spoke with some friends who fished Santa Lucea and Stuart Beach and they all reported steady action with bluefish, whiting, and a few pompano. Target the hours around the high tide mark this week and with the spread of fish we are seeing, the chances of bending a rod are excellent. Fish bites, Clam Strips, Sand fleas, and any type of cut bait should all be in your bait selection to take advantage of this great winter fishery.
