Palm Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
The inshore fishing is full of life winds or not, the mullet run is on and anglers can enjoy non stop action. Morning and evening, snook are exploding on top water plugs and live mullet, docks, seawalls and flats all holding snook right now. Night fishing is another option for anglers bridges and dock light provide great areas to target snook, just look for snook lurking in the shadow line, always present you bait in a natural manner.
Tarpon fishing has been steady this past week, the bigger tarpon are active at sunrise and sunset. The juveniles 5 to 20 pounds are willing to eat all through he day. Live baits drifted with the tide gets the rod bent. Anglers can expect great tarpon action in back bays as bait schools continue to migrate through our area.
Jacks are being caught just about anywhere you toss a live bait or lure. The jacks are in schools of 50 to 100 at times and the typical size is 5 to 8 pounds but there are many that reach 20 pounds. This action will continue through fall for the jacks but cooler air bring plenty of bruisers as well.
The freshwater fishing for peacock bass has presented great numbers and plenty of action for anglers. Fly fishing for the peacock bass along seawalls, grass beds and sand bottoms, allows anglers to sight fish. Sight fishing peacock bass is fun and at timers is a team sport. Boat positioning and casting is the key to success. Deceiver flies and popper work great for the peacock bass. Artificial lures like DOA shrimp and cals also produce great action.. The large mouth bass fishing is fantastic on local lakes using artificial plastics and shiners. The bass are holding on thick cover and big fish can be found on drop offs.
Well that is the fishing report for the past week, hope you all 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
