Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
I had a great charter today with George Wisk from the Port St Lucie Anglers Club and the importance of waiting for the tide to rise was never more evident. George is an accomplished offshore angler and relatively new to the surf fishing scene. After today he can add accomplished to the surf fishing handle as he put 43 croaker and 10 whiting in the cooler. We had some water quality issues when we first started but as the tide kept rising the fishing got better and the water improved. The baits we used were Orange Clam Fishbites and small pieces of frozen shrimp. The location was Stuart Beach and I did not hear from anyone else to see if the fish bit at other locations. Most of the bites came from 15 to 20 yards from the edge, as the fish did not set up on the inshore edge of the near shore trough. The picture I am going to post is only a partial catch as George was catching one after another even as I was cleaning up!! Looking at the upcoming weather forecasts I don't see any major changes so this excellent fishing should continue.
