Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
Heres a quick surf report from the past 2 days . I fished yesterday from 8 am to 4 pm and ended up with 7 keeper pompano . Believe me , that's a lot of time to put in to only get 7 but the catch would have been much better if our friends, the sharks, were not here in the numbers they are. Tonight I fished from 2 to 5 pm and put 5 nice keepers in the cooler and would have had another 4 if I didn't get sharked off. Like I have said previously, after 3 or 4 shark offs , I am packing up and going home. I fished at Stuart the last two days and the news is the water was beautiful at all of the beaches tonight from the Jensen Traffic Circle on A1A, south. The other positive note was that I released 6 pompano that were 10 to 10 1/2 inches long . These smaller , almost keeper size pompano have not been around in any numbers and I hope this is an indication of a new body of fish moving into the area. The other situation was I saw two large schools of Spanish mackerel moving south as I was leaving. I have not seen these schools in the past month. If you are lucky enough to have the day off tomorrow take advantage of the am northwest wind forecast and head to the beach. Looking ahead to the weekend the first real cool front is going to arrive with north and northeast wind predicted to be up to 20 knots and seas to 10 feet through Saturday. EZ Flea Fishbites continue to produce but the Yellow Crab Bait has been producing also. There are not many stores in the area that have the Yellow Crab but it is available on Fishbites website. Heres to hoping you can get out tomorrow .
