Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
I had a great trip today with Anthony Gonzalez from Jensen Beach. Its always great to take someone fishing that enjoys fishing the surf as much as I do. Our catch rate was held down due to the increasing and never ending supply of weeds that keep blanketing our beaches. Its 8 pm and if the weeds had not chased us from Blue Heron Beach, we might still be there. We managed to put 4 nice pompano and some large whiting in the cooler for the fish fry that Anthony is planning this weekend. I looked up and down Hutchinson Island this morning for a beach access that was fishable. Blue Heron was somewhat fishable early in the afternoon but the increasing easterly wind kept pushing the weeds toward shore. EZ Flea, Pink Shrimp, and Orange Clam Fishbites all produced today. There was also a good supply of live sandfleas at Blue Heron and they provided lots of bites also. The wind is forecast to increase tomorrow and back off by the weekend. Hopefully our conditions will improve for this holiday weekend.
