Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
Here's a quick report about the surf action for this Holiday weekend. The Pompano bite in Hobe Sound is living up to the springtime pattern that we normally have in the month of April. Reports of a excellent bite on Friday afternoon at the Bridge Road Beach access proved to be true as the bite was still going strong this morning. I arrived in the dark and cast my first rod out around 7 am. The action was immediate and by 8:15 I was limited out with some beautiful pompano. Fishbites and clam strips were the hot baits fished on the long rods. As I made my way up the beach there was steady action in all areas of the Public Beach access and this great fishing should continue. I spoke with some folks who fished locally and it seems like the whiting and croaker fishing was excellent there along with some pompano mixed in . Santa Lucea, Tiger Shores, Normandy, and Middle Cove all produced whiting and croaker both on the long rods targeting pompano, and for those that fished the near-shore trough . Fishbites and cut shrimp produced at all of the locations. The weather forecast for this first week of April looks pretty good right until mid-week . Thuesday looks a little bit questionable with some stronger winds and seas to seven feet, but a lot can happen between now and then.
