Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
Its a few days after Christmas and I hope everyone is having a great holiday season. I do have a positive surf report to post as my son Randy and friend Chris Battjer put 5 nice pompano in their cooler along with releasing a bunch of blue runners yesterday morning before the wind and swell started to pick up. It was a first light bite and at this time of year any day you can catch the top of the tide in the early morning, that's the time to be there. EZ Flea and Yellow Crab Fishbites were the baits that caught all of their fish. The bite only lasted about 45 minutes so right place at the right time, Stuart Beach , was the ticket. He did say beach erosion has become an issue at Stuart so be careful if you plan on fishing that beach in the upcoming days. Looking at the upcoming week the first day the big swell drops to under 7 feet is Saturday when it calls for 4 to 6 foot waves. Last month we were hoping for an increase in fishable days as we entered December and now as January is only a week away , lets keep that same thought. Personally, I will be out of the line up as far as being able to fish until after January 1 but I hope those of you that get to the beach will have some success. Lets hope the first days of 2020 brings lot of pompano into the area and I would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year .
