Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
The surf has laided down to produce some fishable conditions. I only had a couple of hours this morning to head up and fish and yes, it was fishable, but the water was dirty from Tiger Shores to Porpoise Beach in Fort Pierce. After 7 or 8 sail cats and one small bonnet head shark ,I packed it in. Looking at the webcams and some recent phone calls I received it sounds like we are getting some color back in the water on the local beaches. High tides are in the evening this week so try to schedule your trips for that afternoon bite. EZFlea and Yellow Crab Fishbites should be in your tackle bag to increase your chances of putting a few pompano and whiting in your cooler. My advice is to get your trips in before the weekend because if you read the forecast for Friday and Saturday , it is horrendous. North and Northeast winds from 10 to 20 knots on Friday, increasing to 25 knots on Saturday. Wave heights are predicted to be building to 13 feet on Saturday. Looks like another tough weekend .
