Scouting Around Palm Beach And Martin County

Inshore fishing:
Along the beaches in the Jensen Beach area there has been good action for pompano, whiting and croaker.
The pompano are mostly being caught using the sandflea-flavored Fishbites and the whiting and croaker are being caught in the first trough on frozen shrimp.
In the Intracoastal Waterway and into the Loxahatchee River there have been some large schools of mullet. In those same areas, anglers are having a blast catching jack crevalle.
The snook bite is still pretty good. Look for structure like bridges and piers or along the mangroves.                          Season ends June 1.
Lake Okeechobee:
On Wednesday, a southeast wind, combined with the lake’s current low water level, made finding clear water on the north end the name of the game for bass fishing. That said, if you could find it there were fish to be caught. One charter captain had good luck working an area near the locks by the J&S canal flippin’ and using Carolina rigs.
Anglers on the south end of the lake near Ritta Island were faring a little better with more clear water. They weren’t catching giants but the numbers were good.
