Scouting Around Palm Beach / Martin County Area

There is still a fantastic snook bite in the St. Lucie River. Though the docks are still great spots there have been some crowds around looking to take advantage of the action. Less crowded options, including the St. Lucie Inlet and Sewall’s Point, may lack some of the consistency, but are producing bigger fish. They are all still hitting on live pilchards.
There have also been some tarpon cruising around the inlet. If you can find them, live crabs are definitely working.
On the beaches the pompano, whiting and croaker are still biting, but thick mats of sargassum have been making many areas tough to fish.
There were large schools of mullet around the Boynton Inlet on Tuesday.
There has been some snook and small tarpon action at night off the jetties using live mullet or white chicken feathers 2 oz or heavier, Red Tail Hawks or Live Target pinfish lures.
There have been several bonefish catches by anglers working the flats north of the inlet in the Intracoastal Waterway using live shrimp on a 3/8 ounce jig head.
Small mangrove snapper, sand perch, sheepshead and jacks have been hitting live and cut shrimp around the Lantana bridge.


On the lake the bass bite has been good in Eagle Bay and Tin House Cove areas as well as at the mouth of the Kissimmee River. Anglers using live shiners are fairing slightly better than those using artificial baits.
The bluegill bite has continued picking up and has been best in the Rim Canal and Indian Prairie Canal areas. These tough little fighters are hitting crickets and worms.
