Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
Big swells, dirty water, and weeds are back along our coast and things are pretty well shut down if you are targeting any fish from the surf. Looking ahead at this weeks predicted winds and wave heights I would like to tell you that things are going to get better , but it doesnt look that way. Acoording to my Windfinder app Wednesday and Thursday are the only two days where the wave heights are going to be under four feet . They are forecast to go back over six feet through next Wednesday. The shame of this weather is the pompano started to really chew last Friday as my wife and myself caught our recrerational limits and threw back another 20 plus during the day. We fished at Middle Cove and EZ Flea Fishbites and live sandfleas accounted for all of the bites. Whiting, jacks, blue runners , and ladyfish all made an appearance also during the time we fished. A positive note for anyone who likes to round out their bait supply during the pompano season is the presence of sandfleas that are avilable to rake up and down our beaches. I have found good numbers at Stuart, Tiger Shores, Normandy, Bob Graham , and Middle Cove , so if you want to boil some and put them in the freezer, they are readily available. I guess we just have to be patient and hope the forecasts are wrong . Good luck and catch em up.
