Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
There has not been much to report on the pompano front since the storm due to off colored water at most locations. Stuart Beach had a brief shot of decent water late Saturday afternoon and I did receive a good report of pompano and a permit from Chris Battjer..I took a look on Sunday morning and the water had turned brown and the catfish were the only species I got any action from. On a positive note, there have been some schools of mullet working their way down the beach and surfers who were taking advantage of the persistent swells were sharing the water with lots of tarpon. The latest forecast has an increase in winds from the northeast through the weekend and a build up in waves to 6 feet. This might make things somewhat challenging for the pompano seekers but it should push more bait schools into our area. Tarpon, mackerel, jacks, and bluefish should be making a showing. Once we get some cleaner water and a subsiding surf the pompano, whiting, and croaker action could be pretty good. I will have some great news very shortly about seminars, Capt Paul rig availability, and a great sales promotion from Penn that will be running from Sept 27th to the 29th. I have received some calls and requests for the whiting and croaker and pompano rigs and as of yesterday Fred had some on the pegs at the Snook Nook.
