Scouting Around Palm Beach And Martin County

In Jensen Beach, the pompano fishing has been good, but its all been about finding the right water. Fishbites, clams and sandfleas have been working.
In the St. Lucie River, the snook fishing is getting better and better, but there have been quite a few small fish. Anglers working the bridges at night are catching the bigger ones. Flare Hawks and Spooltek lures are working well.
Along the beaches in Jupiter, the pompano fishing has been excellent! They are making their migration north and if you want to catch them this is the time. Clams, sandfleas and pompano rigs with Fishbites are working well. The best conditions along the beaches are a light southeast with surf that is not too rough.
At the Jupiter Inlet, anglers are catching Spanish mackerel and with the warming water, the snook are beginning to show up.
From the beaches of Lantana south to Delray, surf anglers have reported catching of Spanish mackerel, jack crevalle, bluefish and pompano. Gotcha Lures, Goofy jigs and Diamond Jigs have been the lures of choice.
At the Boynton Inlet, anglers have been catching snook, permit, mangrove snapper, ladyfish, jack crevalle, bluefish and croaker off the jetties. Early morning and night has been the times to fish live shrimp, crab, cut mullet or live pinfish.
Big jack crevalle up to 35 pounds have been crushing top water poppers worked along the seawalls and mangrove roots from Woolbright Bridge up to Lake Worth.
Lantana Bridge anglers using live shrimp, cut mullet, live mullet and small crabs have been landing sand perch, sheepshead, black drum, snook, ladyfish, bluefish, jack crevalle and croaker.
Though the wind was howling yesterday and made fishing a bit difficult, the bass bite has been fantastic recently.
Working the outside grasslines, the shiner bite has been good and for artificial swim baits and Gambler Aces have been working well.
The lake level is very low right now so be careful.
