Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area

 The report from yesterday wasn’t as productive as Saturday but there was still some decent activity . I fished with TCPalms Ed Killer for a couple of hours early yesterday and then two of my son’s, Randy and Paul Jr came up and fished . Ed and I managed some whiting and throwback pompano along with some jacks . After Ed left Paul Jr and Randy continued with the same kind of bites until “Hot Hand Randy “ turned it on . His rods started producing blue runners , jacks, and then 2 nice keeper pompano . The highlight of the morning was when his one rod doubled over and he managed to put a nice permit on the sand . There has been quite of few permit along our beaches this past week and if your long rod doubles over and does not get bit off right away , chances are it’s a permit or a big jack . The key to landing these bigger fish on light line like the 15 lb mono that we use is to properly set you drag so the you can keep steady pressure on the fish but not too tight to break him off . These permit will go north and south up and down the beach once hooked so follow the direction that it runs and cut the angle so you don’t have an excessive amount of line in the water . Keeping these fish directly east of you will speed up the time it takes to land the fish and use the wave action to beach it . A second set of hands will allow a helper to grab it by the tail once it is on the sand . It gives you time to take a quick picture and release it if you are sending it back . I personally like to release them but it is certainly legal to keep one if you wish . Yellow Crab Fishbites was the ticket yesterday for Randy’s keeper pompano and the permit . If you are targeting the permit cut the Fishbite into a slightly bigger piece 1 1/2 inch instead of the 3/4 inch piece used for the pompano . Hope everyone has a great week and catch em up .
