Scouting Around Palm Beach / Martin County Area


With the large swell offshore the last few days, most anglers have stayed inshore to get their fix.
This has not been a bad thing as there is plenty of action.
In the Jensen Beach area, there has been good fishing along the docks in the St. Lucie River. Anglers have been getting snook and sheepshead using shrimp on jig heads.
There have also been a few large schools of jack crevalle moving through the area. Anglers working the seawalls are having good luck targeting them.
Up in the Jupiter area there have been good numbers of pompano, snook, ladyfish, jack crevalle and croakers in the Intracoastal Waterway and up into the Loxahatchee River.
Anglers fishing at night along the dock lights are having decent luck catching snook using live shrimp and the pompano are hitting on Doc’s Goofy Jigs.
Just inside the Lake Worth Inlet, west of Peanut Island, there are still large schools of jack crevalle.
Anglers have also been finding lane snapper, grunts and porgies on the Rybovich Reef just off the Rybovich Marina and Sugar Sand Reef just north of the Blue Heron Bridge near the Sugar Sand Condominiums. Small shrimp are working.
There have also been a few tarpon lurking around The Sailfish Club’s docks.
In the Intracoastal Waterway from Marker 42 to the Boynton Inlet one captain reported catching an 8-pound Cubera snapper on cut ballyhoo and decent action slow-trolling for jack crevalle.
There have also been some large schools of mullet spotted which likely indicates the spring run is starting.


Though still good, the bass fishing has slowed down a bit with the recent cool fronts. Live shiners are working best, but if going with artificial Senkos have been good.
The speckled perch are still biting, but have moved a bit deeper into the river. There has also been good action on them in the King’s Bar and Eagle Bay areas.
The brim and bluefish bite has picked up and has been good in the rim canal.
