Scouting Around Palm Beach / Martin County Area

Even though it sounds like a bit of a broken record, it’s a great song! The snook are still biting in the Indian and St. Lucie Rivers. They are still being caught on pilchards with the best spots being around the docks and bridge pilings.
There are still trout around as well, but they are mostly up around the power plant.
Tarpon are being spotted around the power plant as well.
Along the beaches in the Jensen area, there are still large mats of seaweed that are making it tough for surfcasting.
That said, there are still pompano around.
Along the beaches in Jupiter the jack crevalle bite has been great. Anglers are having a blast catching these incredible fighters. Not lightweights either, fish in the 15 to 30-pound range are being caught.
Snook have been moving out of the river and Intracoastal and are being caught at the Jupiter Inlet and along the beaches as well.
At the Juno Pier there have been pilchards around and anglers are catching snook and even cobia.
Anglers fishing the Lake Worth spillway are reporting catching slot-size snook using Red Tail Hawk lures.


The bass bite has been good, but it’s mostly been a morning bite. Anglers fishing the first four hours of the day and using live shiners are having the best luck. In the Monkey Box area of the lake, plastic worms have been working as well.
The bluegill bite has continued to pick while, conversely, the crappie bite has continued to slow.
