Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area

The pompano and whiting action was excellent this weekend up and down Hutchinson Island but it looks like the easterly wind pattern is returning and conditions are going to be challenging for the work week. My son Randy and I had I had Ricky Gonzalez Sr. and Jr. from Miami out today on a charter and we were able to take advantage of the beautiful weather and great fishing. We fished Middle Cove beach and ended up with 13 nice pompano and 14 nice whiting. The pictures that are attached only show 10 of the pompano because after we took the shots the bite turned back on and we added 3 more to the cooler. It was a pleasure fishing with this father and son team, and I doubt there are too many 8 year olds like Ricky Gonzalez Jr. that are as dialed in and enjoy fishing as much as he does. His Dad has obviously introduced this great kid to fishing at an early age and he had no problem with the entire process of baiting, casting, catching, and removing his fish after a brief introduction at the beginning of the trip. He had as much fun catching double headers of whiting as he did reeling in numerous pompano. I have always preached that our whiting and croaker surf fishery is a great opportunity to getting kids involved in fishing so if you have a son, daughter, niece, or nephew that has an interest in any type of fishing, take advantage of this activity and you will have a fishing partner for life. We also caught and released blue runners and a bonefish to add to thelong catch list. The long rods baited with EZ Flea & pink clam Fishbites and natural sand fleas accounted for all of the pompano while a short rod fished 20 to 30 yards with Shrimp and Clam Fishbites caught the majority of the whiting. I received positive reports from Tiger Shores, Fletcher, Normandy, and Blue Heron beach accesses with whiting being the major catch with some pompano thrown into the mix as well. They are still catching good numbers of pompano to the south of us so with any luck this run should continue right into May
