Along the beaches in Jupiter there has been good action on pompano, as well as whiting and croaker. Though the ‘go-to’ bait right now is sand fleas, they have been very hard to find. Instead try fish bites, fresh, live, cut up shrimp or clams.
Up in the Loxahatchee River there have also been some pompano caught as well as some nice-size jack crevalle and good numbers of black drum. They are all being taken on cut shrimp.
On the lake, the bass are done bedding down and are heading back out. Plus, with the water temperature fluctuating less and holding steady at 74 to 75 degrees the bite has become much more consistent. Anglers working the outside edges of the Kissimmee grass, using spinner baits (especially double silver and white) are catching plenty of fish. Most have been in the two- to two-and-a-half pound range. Hot spots the past week have the shoal and Buckhead Ridge areas.
