The snook and tarpon fishing as been good at the Lake Worth Inlet and the nearby bridges and beaches. Flair Hawk jigs and bigger swimbaits are working great at night, while during the day downsizing your presentation to something like a Vudu Shrimp or a Hyperplastic Dartspin should work well. Big jack crevalle have been spotted cruising around the surf zone and the Lake Worth Inlet. Throw a big piece of metal like a Shimano Coltsniper jig or a big topwater lure to get into them.
Little by little, a few early season mullet have been showing up, which is an exciting sign for inshore guys because it means the bulk of them are not far behind. Spinner and blacktip sharks have been jumping along the edges of the flats and channels in the Intracoastal Waterway near the Boynton Inlet.
From the Snook Islands down to the Boynton Inlet, permit up to 15 pounds are being caught using both live shrimp and dead bait including shrimp, crabs or clams. Fish along sandy shorelines and around grassy flats.
The bluegill bite has been really good, not quite as on fire as the past few weeks, but still definitely worth the effort for some tasty panfish. Hot spots have been King’s Bar, Buckhead Ridge and the rim canal around Henry Creek. Worms and crickets are working as are beetle spins. The bass bite has been best in the early mornings and right before dark using moving baits including swim baits, Skinny Dippers and Horny Toads while working the outside grasslines. After that morning bite begins to slow down switch to flippin’ or live shiners.
