Scouting Around Palm Beach / Martin County Area

Tarpon, snook, barracuda, jack crevalle and snapper have been hitting around the Boynton Inlet jetties. At night, anglers fishing off the south seawall have been catching snapper on cut shrimp and moonfish on white jigs. Tarpon, barracuda and jack crevalle have been hitting slow-trolled shallow diving lures along the Intracoastal Waterway channels and deep seawalls off Ocean Ridge. Mangrove snapper, sheepshead, jack crevalle, tarpon and snook have been hitting live shrimp and live herring around the Lantana Bridge. Night action for snook and tarpon using live bait or artificial lures is a best bet.
The bass fishing on the lake is still excellent in the early morning. From daybreak until about an hour-and-a-half after, white swim jigs are working well. After that, anglers switching to Senkos, either in blues, black or red shad, are faring better flipping and pitching. King’s Bar, Bird Island and Harney Pond are the top spots right now, but the key has been locating and fishing around the Kissimmee Grass. Using chrome and blue Rat-L-Trap lures, anglers also have been catching bass in some of the boat lanes. Though the panfish fishing has been a bit slow, anglers working the rim canals are getting enough for some good dinners.
