Palm Beach to Jupiter

Palm Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Happy New Year January 3, 2006 Fishing Report

Happy New Year to everybody I hope 2006 will be a great one. The fishing the past couple of weeks has been exciting. We are now into winter and the Bluefish, Jacks, Pompano, and Ladyfish are thick on the grass flats and in many residential canals. The best bait for all these fish has been a ¼ ounce buck tail jig tipped with shrimp. A free lined will also work great but you will go through shrimp really fast. As the New Year starts so does the beginning of Trout season (Jan, 1) and the Trout bite has been great on the incoming tide later in the day as the sun gets up. Live bait will work for the Trout but the best artificial bait has been small crank bait in black or silver. A slow steady retrieve will work best along with twitch and pause retrieve. The morning bite has been steady in 5 to 6 feet. As the sun gets up in the afternoon the Trout move in to 2 to 4 feet of water and sit in the sand holes in grass patches. There are also many Snook around right now up on the grass flats and in the rivers and residential canals. The Snook bight is great in the early AM and in the late afternoon as the sun is setting. The night bite is also great around dock lights and sea walls. The Snook have been hitting live shrimp, greenies, finger mullet and many artificial lures. The Snook are not huge but don’t be surprised if the big one shows up to crash the party and get heart racing. Many of the Snook caught average in size of 16” to 28”, but there have been many Fat Snook caught in the mix, which most have been 20”. The freshwater Bass fishing has been steady lately with many of the fish eating just about any lure thrown at them. The fish have been hanging on the edges of drop offs near deep holes. The presentation of the bait has been fast and slow usually a slow presentation in the morning but as the day goes on the Bass will crush any fast moving bait that comes in there path. The Mayan Chiclids and Blue gills have been hitting crickets and minnows under a float this is great for the kids and non-stop action for them to keep them busy. Well that is the report for this past couple of weeks, now that the holidays are over they week be on a regular basis.
