Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
Clean water and no weeds usually points to excellent surf fishing opportunities and today was just that. After having to reschedule a charter for today I returned to Stuart Beach and fished by myself and the croaker, whiting, majorra, palometta, and snook were all in attendance. Orange Clam and Pink Shrimp Fishbites were the only baits I used as the bite started on these baits when I got there and I left them biting. I did not live line any croaker but the snook were swimming up and down the beach the entire two hours I was there. When you have the amount of croaker in one area like today, anyone who wants to play catch-and-release with the snook should get continual runoffs.Tiger Shores and Stuart Beaches have the near shore trough at 5 to 15 yards from the edge and a secondary bar at 15 to 25 yards off of the beach. Most of the bigger croakers and whiting were all in the deeper trough and a cast to this distance provided strikes as soon as the bait hit the bottom. Conditions look pretty good for the rest of the week and as long the nice water stays with us the action should continue.
