Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
It appears as if Hobe Sound is the current hot spot for folks that want to target any number of species from the sand. The Bridge Road access area has been producing pompano, whiting, jacks, blue runners, spanish mackerel, ladyfish, bluefish, and bonefish. I fished that area on Wednesday and Thursday and caught big numbers of pompano. The unfortunate part is seventy five percent had to be released as most were in that ten inch range.The long rods produced the pompano, ladyfish,jacks, and bonefish both days. The usual assortment of baits, EZ Flea and Orange Clam Fishbites did most of the catching . The abundace and availibilty of live sand fleas added to some rigs tipped with Fishbites also caught a number of pompano. For those of you that like to cast artificials , the early morning jack, bluefish, and mackerel action has been off the charts . I watched three anglers casting spoons
catch the blues and mackerel for over an hour in the rain yesterday morning. Bait, birds, and white water could be seen up and down the entire beach area. High tide times will be in the morning this weekend so get out and take advantage of some late fall surf action. Good luck and catch em up.
