Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
It is great to post a surf fishing report that is not talking about wind and wave heights. It is even nicer to talk about putting some pompano in the cooler and watching anglers up and down the beach running to their poles and landing some fish. Conditions today were phenomenal with the swell subsiding and reports of nice water color from Stuart Beach to Fort Pierce Inlet. I started at Stuart and found the area I like to fish pretty crowded so I headed north. The results from Middle Cove to Surfside in Fort Pierce all sounded pretty good with pompano and some whiting all being caught. I was lucky enough to land a cooler of nice pompano, one being over 22 inches, one big whiting, and a sheepshead. Burry McGee and Marty Barlow each fished north and south of me and they had some great action too. I cannot emphasize the importance of having enough Fishbites in your arsenal when hitting the beach. I caught 50% of my pompano on EZ Flea and Yellow Crab Fishbites today with no natural bait on the rigs. The clam strips and frozen sand fleas did catch some fish but they too were tipped with a piece of Fishbites. The forecast looks pretty good for the rest of the week so pick your favorite beach and bend a rod. Good luck and catch em up.
