Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
The catch list from our local beaches this week included catch and release snook, whiting, croaker, Spanish mackerel, palometa, jacks, and even flounder. I fished with my son Randy last Sunday and the bite was pretty slow at Stuart so we took a ride to Blue Heron and managed to catch some whiting, croaker, mackerel, and even a nice 15 inch flounder. Bloodworm scented Fishbites was the hot bait and although we didn't put big numbers in the cooler , we still managed to put a couple of dinners together with the whiting and croaker. I ended up at Blue Heron on Wednesday after only catching a couple of big whiting at the south end of Tiger Shores. The bite turned on in the afternoon with the big whiting and I was lucky enough to put around 30 in the cooler. Bloodworm and Pink Shrimp Fishbites , along with some live sandfleas produced all of the action. The best action has been centered around high tide for the whiting and croaker . The anglers fishing live croaker for snook at Tiger Shores on Wednesday had some nice fish that were caught and released. I fished at Blue Heron this afternoon and had a cooler full of nice whiting, croaker, palometa, and a nice 19 inch Spanish Mackerel. The key to success today was pitching your bait to the inshore side of the first trough. Depending on what beach you fish, this may only be 3 to 5 yards from the edge of the surf line. I tried a few casts 10 to 15 yards off and never had a touch. The conditions look pretty good for the weekend with high tide being around 8 am .Get your Fishbites and shrimp and go have some fun.
