Palm Beach to Jupiter

Palm Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Inshore Report Jan 23,2006

Well the past couple of weeks have been full of non-stop action and excitement. The grass flats have been holding a variety of fish making every cast a guessing game of what could I catch now. The Flats are holding good size Pompano ranging from 11” to 19”. The Pomp’s cannot refuse a ¼ ounce white or yellow buck tail jig tipped with a piece of shrimp. The Ladyfish are also mixed in with the Pompano on the flats, making for great acrobatic excitement. The Ladyfish aka (Poor mans Tarpon) will hit any fast moving jig or crank bait that crosses their path. The Bluefish are also around and are of good size to, these fish are 3 to 6lbs and will eat any bait in their path. The Sea Trout bight has been steady with fish ranging from 12” to 22”. The Trout are holding in 3 to 6’ in the morning as the sun gets higher the Trout will move up to the shallow sand holes looking for warmer water. The Trout have been eating live shrimp, small jigs tipped with shrimp and small crank baits in black and gold. The Mangrove Snapper and Sheephead are also around in good numbers. The docks and seawalls have been holding the keeper size fish that will take any fresh cut bait or live shrimp. Back up in the rivers the Snook bight has slowed a little, but the Snook are there. The bight is great on incoming tide or outgoing tide early in the morning along the sea walls and dock pilings. Greenies and live finger mullet have been the bait of choice. The night fishing has been better than the day bite but many of the Snook are 18” to 24”. The bigger Snook have been hanging on the drop offs of the main channels taking live mullet, sand perch, and greenies. Also up in the river are monster jacks these fish will make a grown man arms hurt. The Jacks are 10 to 20 lbs; this makes for a great fight on light tackle. The hardest part is trying to keep the fish away from the dock pilings and other obstacles that lurk in the way. The Jack are feeding on a high tide and do not stop until the tide is dead low or until all the bait is gone out of the live well. The fresh water is still great with many of the Largemouth Bass ranging from 2 to 8lbs. The Bass are still hanging in the deeper holes hitting jigs, crank baits and live shiners. The grassy edges of banks will hold bass later in the day as the sun gets higher up which makes for great action with finesse baits dragged on the edges of these grassy mats. The Mayan Chiclids and Bluegills are hitting crickets under a float near the shoreline edges this makes for great fun for the kids and will keep them busy all day.
