Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
It feels great to post a surf fishing report that has alot of positive information . St Lucie County beaches are open, pompano are biting, bait schools along with tarpon, big jacks, and spanish mackerel are showing , and the weekend surf conditions look pretty good. I fished yesterday afternoon at John Brooks beach access and had a nice catch of pompano from 5 to 7 pm. I returned this morning with 5 of my commercial pompano buddies and our total catch was 1 pompano. Thats pompano fishing but the good news is those pompano moved a short distance up the beach to Blue Heron and Coconut and they bit all morning. These fish are moving at this time of the year and you probably will not catch the big 2 and 3 pounders that we get during the cooler months but the numbers will increase. Natural Clam strips tipped with Orange Clam Fishbites accounted for most of my fish on Tuesday afternoon with the standard EZ Flea Scent following a close second. One of my friends had stopped at Dolemans Beach access on the way up this morning and said the mackerel, tarpon, and jacks were destroying the schools of pilchards that were moving down the beach. Boy ,its great to be talking about real surf fishing and the bite thats on right now so get out and enjoy it. The rumor mill has the Martin County Beach accesses opening shortly and I know the Tiger Shores area has been producing pompano for the last week for the anglers that had access. I hope everyone that was on the beach today took a minute and thought about our local beaches and the gift that we have here . These beaches closed at the end of March and and I have to tell you, my appreciation and gratitude to have all of these spots available have increased 100 fold. Please follow the guidelines and rules that the officials have set for us so beaches will stay open as we continue to move past this pandemic. Lots of fish, great weather , and improving conditions make this weekend look pretty good. Good luck and catch em up.
