Scouting Around Palm Beach And Martin County

Inshore fishing:
Along the beaches in the Jensen area there is an excellent bite for whiting and croaker. Bloodworm Fishbites or frozen shrimp in the first trough will produce the best results.
There are also still some pompano around. Again bring the bigger rods to get baits including sandflea Fishbites and live sandfleas out a ways as they are staying a bit farther off the beach.
There has been a nice tarpon bite inside the Lake Worth Inlet the past week. Using live bait in the early mornings and late afternoons has been producing good results.
Anglers fishing off the jetties at the Boynton Inlet are catching mangrove snapper, grunts, snook, tarpon and jack crevalle using live shrimp, live sardines and cut finger mullet.
Working the beaches around the inlet using cut shrimp has produced catches of small permit, whiting and croaker.
Along the flats in the Intracoastal Waterway near the Boynton Inlet small permit up to eight pounds are hitting jigs tipped with shrimp during the first two hours of the incoming tides.
At the Lantana Bridge anglers are catching sheepshead on cut clams and live crabs. Sand perch, small jack crevalle and mangrove snapper have been hitting live shrimp and peeled frozen shrimp fished on the bottom.
Lake Okeechobee:
There has been an excellent bluegill and cichlid bite the past week around King’s Bar, Buckhead Ridge and in the rim canal. Worms and crickets are working best for live bait and beetle spins for artificial.
The bass bite has been best in the early morning and late afternoons. Use moving baits including Chatterbaits, spinnerbaits and skinny dippers along the outside grassline for best results. For the late morning through mid-day bite creature-style baits fished in the weed patches have been paying off. Live shiners are working all day. Top spots have been King’s Bar, Buckhead Ridge, Henry Creek and the J&S Canal.
