Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area

The forecast looks pretty darn nice until Sunday night when it is supposed to shift to the northeast . 2 foot seas are predicted all weekend and I spoke to a couple of anglers who stopped in the Snook Nook today and they reported the ever present slime weed was not a problem today . The folks I spoke with were targeting whiting and croaker in the near shore trough and had a pretty good morning. Bloodworm Fishbites caught some nice fish this morning and it’s time for everyone to start putting a couple of bags in their bait supply as we enter the late spring. I have been spending the last few trips on the local bridges due to the abundance of slime weed on the beach and have had a catch list that has included pompano, Spanish mackerel, bluefish, jacks, blue runners, look downs, and some big river croakers . 1/8 ounce crappie jigs and 1/2 ounce pompano jigs have produced all of my fish . If the weeds remain a non issue this weekend I am sure there is a chance to put some late season pompano in your cooler if you head to the beach . I plan on bringing a couple of pompano rods to the beach this weekend along with some Electric Chicken Fishbites and some light spinning rods to target whiting and croaker . If the weeds stay away it will be nice to get back on the sand . Remember just pitch your Bloodworm Fishbites tipped with shrimp into the first trough, don’t overcast them if you are targeting the whiting . It’s nice to have a few different species to target and don’t be afraid to pitch a live croaker in the surf if you want a shot at a snook . Hopefully the biggest problem you will have is deciding on which species you want to target !!
