Scouting Around Palm Beach / Martin County Area

               Along the beaches in Jensen, anglers are catching good numbers of whiting and croaker using pink Fish Bites with cut shrimp.They are also catching quite a few snook using menhaden which are fairly thick in the area right now. Spawning on the full moon, the mangrove snapper are biting all along the Jupiter area. Carlin Park and Dubois Park have been good, but the key is finding structure like rocks or a jetty in 30 feet of water or less. The fish are holing up in those areas and are hitting on small pilchards, small sardines and shrimp. Areas including Coral Cove Park and Blowing Rocks Preserve could definitely be worth checking out. The snook bite at the Jupiter Inlet is still fantastic and has been best on the outgoing tide when the water is a bit warmer. There are big tarpon in the 60- to 120-pound range cruising around the sandbars at the Boynton Inlet. There also some good-sized snook lurking in the area as well. They are mostly being caught just inside the inlet. Anglers working the jetties are catching mangrove and dog snapper and permit on crabs. Mangrove snapper are also being caught around the channel markers in the Intracoastal Waterway. One captain recommended night fly fishing for snook, tarpon and moonfish along the docks in the ICW using epoxy silverside and epoxy shrimp flies. At the Lantana Bridge they have been catching sheepshead, jack crevalle and sand perch.
On the lake the bass bite is great in the early mornings and late afternoons! In the mornings, artificial baits including spinnerbaits, swim jigs and Senkos are best, while in the afternoons live shiners are the call. Top spots are the King’s Bar and Buckhead Ridge areas. The bluegill are biting in the canals and in the river and are being caught on red worms and crickets.                                                                                 report courtesy of Palm Beach Post
