There is a lot of life along our local beaches . The pilchards and glass minnows have been showing the last two days and the snook, jacks, whiting, croaker, and palometas have been have been following them down the beach . Randy, my granddaughter Ashley, and I fished a couple of beaches in Jensen Beach and Stuart yesterday and the whiting and croaker that were biting in Stuart a couple of days ago were gone . We found the pelicans and all of the bait at a couple of beaches in Jensen Beach and the whiting and croaker were all over it . We managed to put about 50 nice whiting and croaker in our coolers and Ashley was even catching double headers . Orange Clam Fishbites was the ticket yesterday and today fished 10 to 40 yards off of the beach . I talked to a couple of anglers who were targeting catch and release snook and they were having success live lining pilchards . I went back this morning by myself and the bite was even better for the whiting and croaker . Bait was everywhere and when the glass minnow’s showed the big croakers bit on every cast . The action has been best around the high tide mark and the two hours after . The whiting are biting in spurts and it seems when the croaker shut off the whiting start cruising the trough . Today I was able to make some neighbors and friends pretty happy with bags of the best tasting fish the beach has to offer . Target your baits to the schools of bait as they move up and down the beach and pitch them right in the middle of the schools . This is light tackle fishing and just great fun .Cut your shrimp into small pieces and downsize your Fishbites also . A small piece of shrimp tipped with Orange Clam or Chartreuse Bloodworm Fishbites will put you in the game . Seas are forecast to be around 2 feet right until Thursday when the SE wind is supposed to make a return . Good luck this week and catch em up . The table on the left was Randy and Ashley’s catch from yesterday and on the right was the bite from today .
