Palm Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
Sunshine summer is progressing and the heat is on. Mid day heat is unbearable at times, showers help cool down heat but also bring plenty of humidity. Stay cool and drink lots of fluids the fishing is hot as well..
The Inshore fishing has been fantastic for Snook from Jupiter to Palm Beach targeting local inlets. Fish the outgoing tide for best results. Fish early morning, evening and night for best results when targeting the Snook. Live greenies sand perch, and mullet have been excellent baits to use for the Snook. Drop the bait to the bottom and hold on these fish pull hard. Doa cal in 4 and 5.5 inch with 3/8 ounce jigs will also entice Snook, make sure the bait is on the bottom. Once you find them mark the spot and fish it hard, the Snook are schooled up ready to eat. The average size of the Snook has been 6 to 20 pounds.
The Tarpon fishing has been great early morning along the beaches north of Palm Beach Inlet and out front of the Palm Beach inlet. Use live greenies for best results. Lures like a DOA Bait buster or DOA C.A.L. 4 inch jerk bait in pearl or Green back will get you hooked. Look for rolling fish and quietly get in front of the schools to present your bait. The Tarpon are averaging 20 to 80 pounds.
The grass flats are teaming with trout and red fish, the bite has been best during low light hours as water temperatures are cooler. Live baits like greenies and mullet entice strikes. Doa cal in 3 inch and doa shrimp in glow and gold rush belly and holographic get the drag screaming as well. Work depths from 2 to 6 feet of water working drop offs and pot holes for best results.
Peacock bass are roaming the shorelines in search of there next meal. Sight fishing for the peacock bass using fly or artificial lrues is a blast. The 2 inch doa shrimp in pearl fire tail great choice for the fly rod, when using spinning gear a 3 doa shrimp in fire tiger and glow and gold triggers the peacock bass consistently. Live shiners work great for those looking for non stop action, the peacock bass are ranging from 2 to 6 pounds.
Well that is the report for the past week hope you enjoyed. Remember you cant catch them from the couch, so get out there and get hooked up. Tight Lines! Capt. Craig Korczynski PhlatsInshoreFishing.com, 561-644-4371
