Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area
Here’s the full story on today and what is positive is that there is a pretty good spread of pompano up and down Hutchinson Island . I fished today with my son Randy and friend Marty Barlow . I got some intel last night telling me the water had cleaned up by Fort Pierce so I headed north and Randy and Marty were looking south . I caught a few first thing in the morning and then the bite shut down . Randy and Marty only had one but around 1030 their action started to pick up . I headed down and the bottom line was Randy limited out in an hour and his limit is below on the sand and Marty went home with 3 or 4 nice ones too . I started picking away as soon as I threw the lines out and ended up with a nice bunch of fish to bring to New England Seafood . I am amazed at how the Electric Chicken Fishbites has produced this season . We did catch a few on the EZFLEA today but most were taken on the Electric Chicken . The current was running to the south today and we used the Sinker Guys 4 and 5 ounce Sputnik’s all day . The pompano were holding 70 to 80 yards off today and the short bait never had a touch . I spoke with a couple of friends today that fished at different beach accesses and the great thing is they all caught some fish . If I was fishing tomorrow I would pick a beach from Normandy south . March and April can provide some of the best pompano fishing of the year so if you are considering purchasing some new gear for the spring run give the Penn Spinfisher Longcast models a look . This reel was pretty hard to find a few months ago but I am happy to let you know the Snook Nook in Jensen Beach has a great supply . The technology and performance of this reel will put you in the game to put some pompano in the cooler. The forecast is looking pretty good right now for the next few days as far as surf conditions so hopefully you can get out and bend a rod . I will be at the Snook Nook tomorrow from 6 to 12 if you have any questions about tackle, gear , bait , or locations for catching some pompano.
