Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area

I’ve been trying to get some decent days where the croaker and whiting start showing in decent numbers . I had my nephew Tony planning to come down from St Augustine and fish yesterday but based on what the conditions and lack of fish were at midweek I told him to take a pass . I made the wrong decision for him as the wind shifted to SW late Friday night and pushed the sargassum back off of the beach . I fished with Deb and family friend Sandy and proceeded to fill the cooler with the croaker and whiting . The croakers dominated the catch but we did put some whiting in the cooler too. Based on the activity I am going to start booking charters starting June 1 . This is really fun fishing with light tackle and anyone can do it . The times of the trips will be dictated by the high tide cycles because that’s when these fish bite the best . The bait of choice on Saturday was the light green Bloodworm Fishbites tipped with a small piece of shrimp. We fished right in our backyard here in Jensen Beach but I also made a short stop up by Ft Pierce early in the morning and caught some there too. As the tide drops the fish will start moving out of that near shore trough but we were still catching them 3 hours after the high tide mark but we had to cast 30 to 40 yards to reach them instead of fishing the first trough 5 to 10 yards off . The end result is bending the rods and going home with some of the best table fare our Florida beaches offer . I will be reaching out to the folks who have already contacted me concerning a charter and anyone else that might like to book a trip please call me at 609 903 8243 . I am going to do a couple of posts in the very near future about tackle, baits, and techniques on catching fish on our beaches this summer.
