Palm Beach to Jupiter

Palm Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Inshore Fishing Report Febuary 8,2006

The inshore fishing the past two weeks has been very eventful; you never know what species of fish you will hook into next. Up on the grass flats the Pompano are hanging on the deeper ledges hitting white and green buck tail jigs tipped with shrimp. Most of the Pompano are ranging from 13 to 17 inches. The Feisty Lady fish are also on the flats hitting any jig or fast moving crank bait. The Ladyfish are usually 1 to 3 pounds, but there have been some big fish in the deeper water, that are around 4 to 5 pounds. The Trout bight is picking up. The bight has been better in the afternoons as the fish move in shallower hitting small jigs and mirror lures. Many of the Trout are legal, but there are a lot of short fish caught. Also on the flat are legal size mangrove snappers, and sheepshead, with the occasional flounder. Back up in the river the Snook bight has been ok but will pick up as the water warms. The Snook have been feeding early and late in the afternoon. I prefer the last hour of incoming and the first two hours of outgoing. The fish are holding tight to any structure, like docks and sea walls. The past week has produced many Fat Snook again, with a monster fish caught by a junior angler, Alex of Jupiter, Florida. His Fat Snook was 24 inches long and weighed just under 4 pounds. As for the common Snook they have been thick at night around docks, feeding on shrimp and small baitfish. The average size caught has been 19 to 25 inches just shy of the size slot. In the residential canals the jack cravelle have been on fire. These fish are making anglers arms ache. The Jacks are on average 10 pounds but we had some come threw that reached 20 pounds. Match these fish up with 10 pound test line and Light tackle rods and reels, and you will wish you had not hooked him. The blue fish are also in the canals busting on any bait in their sight. The blues have been in the deeper holes and move around fast, the best way to get them to stay is chum the water and throw noisy top water lures. Well that is the fishing report for the Jupiter/Palm Beach area.
