Beach Fishing With Paul Sperco Palm Beach/Martin County Area


I worked at the Snook Nook this morning and the place was busy from open till I left at noon . Lots of anglers fishing this weekend from the river, surf, and offshore . As far as the surf is concerned I fished yesterday morning from about 730 to 930 and managed to put 20 nice whiting in the cooler and the photo I attached are the beautiful fillets from yesterday that will be my 4th of July Hutchinson Island fish fry. The bite yesterday was right after the high tide mark on the start of the outgoing movement. The small sand perch were a bit of a problem but I’m seeing that the whiting have been about 10 yards inshore of the schools of perch . A quick tip for the whiting and croaker is once you locate them keep casting to the same distance and area where you are getting the bites . I have been starting with a longer cast of 40 to 45 yards from the surface and if I don’t get any bites I start dragging my sinker and bait in 1 to 2 yards every couple of minutes . When you find them just keep putting your bait in the exact same spot . I also walk out of the surf and make a mark in the sand with my foot at the exact line where I was casting up on the dry sand area . You could be 10 yards away and never get a bite . Chartreuse Bloodworm And Chartreuse/Shine/ Flesh Shrimp Fishbites tipped with a small piece of shrimp continues to produce . Always try the first trough when you start your day to see if they are in that near shore area . Yesterday all of the bites came from 20 to 40 yards off while last Saturday all of the whiting were right at our feet 5 to 10 yards off . It’s a morning high tide for the rest of the weekend so stop at the Snook Nook, grab your Fishbites and shrimp, and go have some fun . Stay hydrated and bring the sunscreen. I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend.
