Rain triggers great snook bite

Capt. Craig Korczynski
October 31, 2011
Palm Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Snook react to constant rainfall, plentiful and much overdue. The rain has cooled water temperatures, triggering flood gates to open up all through the county. Snook are busting mullet pods along docks, seawalls, and inside the spillways. The best bait has been live finger mullet on a 1/0 hook, for artificial enthusiasts nothing beats a top water plug worked near structure, drop offs and open flats.
The tarpon action has been steady, but we can expect the tarpon bite to really fire up as cool fronts continue to venture our way. Typically tarpon love to feed at low light hours, but mid day you can expect to see fire works as tarpon explode on baits near the surface. The best method for the silver king is live baits free lined with the tide near drop offs and along mangrove shorelines. Jigs and crank baits trigger strikes as well, make sure you have sharp hooks and always bow to the king while they are airborne. Typical size of the tarpon range from 5 to 30 pounds.
The cooler air temperatures and drastic water temperature fluctuations the pompano have slowly migrated inward to open bays and flats. Look for skipping fish in your wake or even while running the trolling motor for a clue, the pomps are in the area. Jigs tipped with shrimp or docs goofy jigs ,best baits for consistent action.
Pound for pound one of the strongest fish inshore, Jacks Crevalle are abundant and willing to devour any bait in their vicinity. The typical size of the jacks, has ranged from 5 to 20 pounds, at times it seems like the fight will never end, it takes a little muscle and plenty of laughs to boat the mighty jack. There is no need for the gym after a day of catching jacks on light tackle. Jacks love to roam seawalls and docks looking for any free meal, finding bait pods is the key to success .
Great for the kids, sheepshead offer plenty of action and put a great bend in the rod. The best part about the sheepshead, they can be sight fished presenting kids and adults a perfect view of the strike. It doesn't get any better. Live shrimp or a fiddler crab on a size 1 hook and you are ready to roll.
Well that is the fishing report for Jupiter and the Palm Beaches, 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
