Palm Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
The Inshore fishing has been full of action for anglers targeting Snook. The Snook continue to gather in our inlets and deep channels. Anglers have been reporting catches in double digit numbers with many of the Snook averaging 5 to 25 pounds. Live baits dropped to the bottom and jigs bounced off the bottom will get you hooked up.
The Tarpon action has been great on the beach and inside the ICW for anglers looking to tango with the silver king. Look for rolling fish and present a live bait or jig in the area were fish are rolling. The Tarpon have ranged in size from 10 to 70 pounds. Always remember to bow down while a Tarpon is jumping to avoid the break offs and hooks pulling out.
The Docks and seawalls have provided great action for anglers using jigs and live baits. The Jacks, Snapper and a few Trout have been the main predators being caught. These fish have been ambushing bait schools as they look for shelter. Early morning and late afternoon has provided the best bite.
Peacock bas fishing has been great for anglers looking for drag screaming action on extreme light tackle. Doa lures like the 2 inch shrimp trigger strikes. Top water plugs doe cal and live shiners all produce. Fly fanatics the peacocks are very aggressive and will chase down a deceiver or popper with authority. Sight fishing for these beauties is awesome.
Well that is the 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
