Scouting Around Palm Beach And Martin County

There has been a good redfish bite up around the Middle Cove Beach area. Using pinfish for bait or top water plugs in the early morning has been producing good results.
In the same area they are also getting sea trout using D.O.A. Jerk Shads.
The fishing for black drum has been good the past week for anglers working the Jensen Causeway, the Roosevelt Bridge and the Ten Cent Bridge. They are mostly hitting shrimp on a jig head.
Pompano are being caught off the relief bridge by Stuart Causeway Park on goofy jigs.
Though with the strong east wind the surfcasting has been difficult, there are good numbers of pompano right now along the Jensen-area beaches.
At the Jupiter Inlet, anglers are catching good numbers of jack crevalle, some bluefish, redfish and snook. For the jacks, bluefish and redfish a spoon with a good wobble on 40-pound fluorocarbon has been producing good results. Work the spoon so the fish can see it through the churned up water.
Though the inlet has been good for snook, the area bridges have been better. Live mullet are best, but any lure resembling a mullet should  get them biting. Lures with a good amount of white coloring are working best.

There are still good numbers of snook holding around the Boynton Inlet. Working from the surf Yo-zuri plugs have been effective.
Fishing from the inlet there is also good snook action with plenty of slot-size fish being caught using live croaker or mullet.
Also, the mangrove snapper bite has been good at the inlet using live shrimp or cut mullet.
Just inside the inlet, working the docks and flats has been producing a good pompano bite. They are being caught on white jigs tipped with shrimp.
North of the inlet, in the Intracoastal Waterway around Manalapan, they have been catching snook, ladyfish, bluefish and mangrove snapper. Live finger mullet, live shrimp, jigs with live shrimp and jigs with live mullet.
At the Lantana Bridge anglers are getting some small redfish on mullet chunks. They are also catching snook, ladyfish and some baby tarpon while working the shadow lines with live shrimp.

The bass fishing is still excellent in the early morning in the King’s Bar and Buckhead Ridge areas. Pitchin’ and flippin’ beaver-style baits and Senko worms has been working well. The bluegill bite is still good with the best action being found working the outside grassline around Henry Creek and the J&S Canal.
The spec bite has started to come up some. Anglers fishing deep in the Kissimmee River are having the best luck.
