Scouting Around Palm Beach And Martin County

Inshore fishing:
Along the beaches in the Jensen area, there are still good numbers of croaker and some whiting in the first trough. A double-hook rig using either Bloodworm Fishbites or pieces of shrimp will get the job.
Those croaker you may catch are also excellent bait for catching and releasing the snook that are cruising and hunting in the first trough.
In addition to croaker, the snook are being caught using spoons, which can resemble the glass minnows that have recently shown up along the beaches in the area.
Anglers working the flats in the Indian River near Bear Point and Middle Cove are catching good numbers of snook. They are being taken using D.O.A. Shrimp and D.O.A. Cal lures.
Along the beaches in the Boynton area surf anglers have been catching permit, jack crevalle and tarpon in the early mornings and again around dusk.
The permit, some of which have been up to 35 pounds, are being caught using bucktail jigs and Chasebait Smash Crabs.
The jacks and tarpon are being caught throwing two- to four-ounce Crocodile Spoons as well as top water plugs including Zara Spooks in blue and silver.
At the Boynton Inlet anglers are reporting catching croaker, sheepshead, mangrove snapper and snook.
The croaker are being caught on pieces of shrimp.
Many of those croaker are then used as bait for catching and releasing some big snook. Fish them on the bottom during the outgoing tide.
The sheepshead are being taken on crabs during the incoming tide.
The sheepshead are being taken on crabs during the incoming tide.
In the Intracoastal Waterway, the C-51 spillway should provide great snook action. Chasebait Flick Prawns should work well.
In the IWC, north and south of the Boynton Inlet, the docks are also providing action on snook using many different lures including X-Rap by Rapala, Yo-Zuri and Live Target mullet and pinfish. On the flats just north and just west of the Boynton Inlet anglers using pompano jigs tipped with shrimp are catching bonefish and small permit during the first two to three hours of the falling tide.
At the Lantana Bridge permit are being caught using shrimp on pompano rigs along with sheepshead on fiddler crabs and sand perch and croaker on cut shrimp.

Lake Okeechobee:
Out on the lake the bass bite has been excellent. From first light until around 8:30 a.m. anglers are doing well working the outside grasslines using swim jigs and spinner baits. After that, flippin’ a jig will keep the action going. Live shiners are working well all day. Hot spots have been King’s Bar and the Henry Creek area.
The bluegill bite has also been good. Anglers using crickets and worms or beetle spins are doing well working the Kissimmee River, King’s Bar and Indian Prairie areas.                          
Rick and Mike, fishing on Lake Osorbne caught two impressive Peacocks on shinners
