Palm Beach to Jupiter

Palm Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Inshore Report February 26, 2006

The fishing up on the grass flats has been excellent the past couple of weeks. The water has warmed a few degrees making for excellent conditions. The Pompano are still all over the flats in 3 to 6 feet of water. Most of the Pompano are all in the slot, with the average fish around 13. The Ladyfish are also still prowling the flats, looking for any fast moving buck tail jig or crank bait. Once you find the Ladies they will not leave you alone. The Sea Trout are still biting, with most of the Trout found in 2 to 4 feet of water. The Trout have been hitting yellow buck tail jigs tipped with shrimp, and small crank baits. The flats are also producing small Mutton Snappers and nice size Mangrove Snappers. The Sheep head bite is getting better with most of the bites happening near the crab traps. The Snook are on the flats later in the evening hanging near the thick grass in 3 feet. Most of the Snook on the flat are under the slot, but put on a great show as they explode on a live greenie free lined. The backwater Snook bite in the river is still hot, producing both Fat Snook and Common Snook. The Snook have been taking both small finger mullet and live greenies, free lined towards the structure. The big Jack Cravelle are still around and will eat just about any live bait thrown at them. The Jacks will make you work and just when you think there tired, they take another run blistering run for structure.

The night fishing for Snook has been good with many of big fish hanging on the deeper edges of the lit docks. The outgoing tide has been producing the best bite. The average size Snook caught has been 24 with some Snook in the slot up to 29. The best bait has been small shrimp and greenies. As the water warms up, the bite will pick up and bring in those bigger fish heading towards the inlets.

The freshwater fishing has been excellent, and will continue to stay hot as the bigger Bass head for beds to start the spawn. The Bass have been hitting 4 storm baits on the deeper holes, with many of the fish brought in weighing 5 pounds. The smaller fish near the banks are hitting small spinner baits and watermelon color flukes. Shiners will also produce many fish along with those slobs that are 6 to 7 pounds. One trip this past week on Lake Wellington produced Peacock bass up to 1- pounds. This is great news for the Lake Wellington hopefully they will produce more.

Well that is the report for the past couple of weeks. If you would like to experience Light Tackle Inshore Fishing for any of the above-mentioned fish, give Capt Craig a call at 561-644-4371, or email phlats1519@yahoo.com. Hope to here from you soon. Visit WWW.PhlatsInshoreFishing.Com
