Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area

 It’s Sunday afternoon and after a less than exciting Saturday on the beach the phrase , “ if you don’t go you won’t know “ held true today . A 12 noon high tide and a 105 heat index forecast kept me home this morning to minimize my time on the beach . These whiting and croaker have been dialed in on the hour before high tide to 2 hours after all summer . I headed up at about 945 and tried a few different beaches up north , Frederick Douglass, John Brooks, and Middle Cove . I did catch a handful of croakers yesterday at Middle Cove along with some throwback Majorras . There was no activity at any of those spots so I stopped at an access closer to Jensen Beach around 11 and it was game on . Rays jumping out of the water, turtles sticking their heads up constantly, and lots of glass minnows showing all this life on the beach is what you look for . The big croakers were hammering the Orange Shrimp Fishbites and double headers were plentiful . One nice thread fin, a couple of big majorras, and a couple of nice whiting made their way to the cooler . I will tell you at about 1215 after the tide turned , the bite was over . Take advantage of the action when it is there because it can last 10 minutes or 2 hours . All of the bites came from 10 to 20 yards from the surf line . If you want that fish fry this week, look for bait activity and fish the high tide . I’m using rigs that I make with number 4 and 6 Mustad J hooks and and a 1 ounce pyramid for a sinker . The surf is calm and the water is clean . Hope everyone has a great week. Good luck and catch em up .
