Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
The catch rate from our local beaches this past weekend certainly left something to be desired on both Saturday and Sunday. Conditions on Saturday were pretty darn good without alot of wind or big surf but unfortunately that memo never made it to the fish. Spotty reports of a few croaker, whiting, jacks, mackerel, and bluefish were spread out from Fort Pierce to Hobe Sound. The pompano were also pretty tough to come by and those anglers targeting that species are looking forward to a decent front to move down our coast and hopefully push a new body of fish into the area. I fished at Stuart Beach on Saturday and the only bites I had were from some small jacks and a palometa. The folks I spoke with at that location who were fishing the first trough did manage to put a few whiting and croaker in their coolers. Pink Shrimp and Orange Clam Fishbites along with some cut shrimp produced those fish. I fished near Fort Pierce Inlet on Sunday and caught jacks and blue runners. Schools of mackerel were thick up that way but did stay out of casting range. This week looks like we might have some decent sized surf to contend with and most of the forecasters are talking about a front for next weekend. Hopefully this weather will trigger some good activity in our area and we will get this late fall run back on track. Good luck and catch em up.
