Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
Looking at the current local marine forecast for wind and wave heights through Tuesday, I had to read it twice to make sure it wasn't a misprint. 3 to 4 foot seas through Sunday and dropping out to1 to 2 feet through Tuesday. We all know that conditions can change pretty quickly but I am happy to say it looks like we have a chance!! I received some reports yesterday about lots of mackerel in the Pecks Lake area along with some decent pompano catches on the south end of Jupiter Island. The key to the next few days should be finding some decent water that should be holding pompano, mackerel, bluefish, jacks, and whiting that are part of our migratory species available at this time of year. It is nice to be concentrating on fish and not unfishable conditions. The beach tides in our area call for the high water mark to be around 5 to 6 am over the weekend with a late afternoon incoming tide that you should factor in when you are planning your fishing trips this weekend. I also talked to a few anglers that caught some nice whiting around high tide in the first trough the last couple of days. Get your Fishbites,and if you are looking for the hard to find Yellow Crab bait, the Snook Nook is the only store in the area that has a big supply,load up your vehicle and take advantage of the first extended period of time we have seen in awhile to go bend a rod on the beach. I will be out over the weekend and will post some updates over the weekend.
