Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
The surf conditions seem to be holding as predicted with 2 to 3 foot seas forecast right into the weekend but the weeds that have been rolling in since yesterday are making the surf fishing almost impossible. I took a ride yesterday morning and headed south to Hobe Sound based on some intel I received on Sunday night and I did not have to deal with the mats of weeds. The pompano made a brief appearance but the bite was over by 9 am. I managed to put 5 in the cooler along with releasing some blue runners and bluefish and was headed home early. The spinner sharks kept my catch to only five as they did bite off another four pompano I had hooked . The light easterly winds are predicted into Friday night when it will shift to the northeast and increase Saturday and Sunday. Sunday and Monday look like unfishable days with the surf building to 7 to 8 feet. We can only hope for some type of current and wind shift that will get rid of all of the weeds that are piling up on the local beaches. The pompano bit the EZ Flea and bright yellow Clam and Crab Scented Fishbites again on Monday . Hopefully we can find some gaps in the weeds the next few days and catch the pompano, bluefish, bluerunners, whiting, and ladyfish that are swimming along our beaches. If anyone has any questions about locations, techniques, baits , or tackle about fishing the surf this month , I will be in the studio this week with Fred from the Snook Nook and doing the South Florida Fishing Report on 94.3 WZZR .I Heart Radio, Saturday morning from 6 to 8 am. The number to call is 877 927 6969. We will be happy to answer all of your questions .
