Palm Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
The snook action in Jupiter and Palm Beach, will offer anglers with explosive action along seawalls and channel drop offs. Sight fishing along the flats is another option for those who enjoy watching the bite, a fly or doa jig presented properly and you have witnessed, what fishing is all about. Night fishing great alternative for snook fanatics, target dock lights with doa shrimp, live shrimp, crank baits and top water plugs to get your drag screaming.
The silver king is the main target for me this time of year, the tarpon are prevalent inside the Icw and near deeper passes. Live shrimp drifted with the tide is the best bait, other baits like mullet, pinfish and greenies will work as well. Artificial enthusiast get to jigging, the deeper passes offer plenty of shots using bait busters or doa cal with a jig head. The tarpon this time of year range from 5 to 50 pounds.
The cooler weather is a tell-tale sign the pompano returning. The grass flats and deeper holes in the Inter coastal are great areas to locate the pomp's, they can be seen skipping in your wakes as you slowly push through the shallows. Live shrimp or jigs tipped with shrimp, sands leas or the old faithful Docs goofy jig and you are off to the races.
Sea Trout season is closed for are area, which does not mean we can't catch them. The grass flats will be teaming with schoolie fish willing to take a doa shrimp with a popping cork, or even a live shrimp drifted above the grass. The gator trout will be in deeper water, pinfish or sand perch will entice the females to strike.
Last but not least the jacks, bulldogs of the inshore waters, will pounce on any fast moving top water lure or live bait in the vicinity of seawalls, docks or open flats. The jacks are schooling fish averaging 5 to 25 pounds. Mix in light tackle rods and kids and you have a recipe for happiness.
The peacock bass fishing in local canals and lakes has offered drag screaming action for anglers. Fly fishing for the peacock bass has been phenomenal as peacock explode on poppers and deceivers. The peacock can be sight fished offering exciting fishing. Live baiting or using doa lures for the peacock bass produces great number for anglers. These beautiful fish pull hard and get anglers wanting more.
