Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
The last two days on the beach have kept pace with our last couple of months of wind and rough surf. One of these weeks we are going to get 4 or 5 days in a row of nice weather and we will be pinching ourselves. I fished Sunday and today and the only thing I had to show for the effort was a few bluefish. If anyone wants to catch a few to put in the smoker or just have some fun reeling them in they seem to be spread up and down all of our beaches. I caught them on Yellow Crab Fishbites today so I am sure if you used cut mullet and targeted them you could have some great action. The northeast swell and wind yesterday really produced some challenging conditions and if you were not using spider sinkers you probably had some issues holding bottom. I did not fish too long yesterday or today but I did receive a few reports of a couple of pompano here and there. My son Randy and friend Chris Battjer fished at Santa Lucea yesterday and only had two bites but they both turned out to be two pound pompano. Other beaches that produced a few pompano were Blue Heron, Porpoise, Tiger Shores, Stuart, and Bridge Road in Hobe Sound. Water color was pretty nice at most spots and once the wind backs off things should pick right back up. Looking ahead Daylight Savings Time goes into effect this weekend and with the longer days, times, techniques, baits, and locations for the best pompano fishing of the year will change somewhat. I will be covering all of that information on March 14 at Bass Pro Shops in Port St Lucie at the Springtime Surf Fishing for Pompano Seminar at 230 pm. The weather is forecast to improve starting tomorrow so lets all hope we start to see 2 to 3 foot seas instead of the 4 to 6 that has been the norm. Good luck this week and catch em up.
