Inshore Fishing Report September 11, 2007 Palm Beach / Jupiter
Let me start off by saying summer has flown by pretty fast. The fall is upon us and that means 'Mullet Run Time'. We have already gotten pods of mullet passing through the past few weeks. This has turned the fishing up inside. The Tarpon Snook, and Jacks have been going nuts all through the Lake Worth lagoon. The best times have been morning, evening, and nighttime do to the water temperatures dropping as the sunsets.
Snook season is back open, September first was opening day and I have only managed one slot sized Snook with the new regulations. Most of the Snook caught are over the slot or just under the twenty-eight inch mark. Most of the Snook have been following bait pods near docks and sea walls. Live bait is the key but during the early morning and evening hours jigs and top water baits will produce many hook ups.
The Tarpon action has been hot the past week and these fish are everywhere. Many off the Tarpon are in small pods both incoming and outgoing produce fish. Free lining live bait will get there attention but for those who like to throw lures, small top dogs and spooks will work along with storm baits. The average size of the Tarpon is 5 to 20 lbs. The Jacks have also been around in full force exploding on any bait that moves near there vicinity. The Jacks are ranging form 2 to 15 lbs. The snapper bite and sheepshead bite has been good also with many of these fish taken near the docks and sea walls
The freshwater bite has slowed do the water clarity. The water has been chocolate brown the past week because off all the rain and the back pumping form the engineers thanks.
There are fish around the key has been to find cleaner water and fish early in the morning or late in the evening. The largemouth bass have been taking finesse worms and small crank baits, The peacock bas bite has slowed tremendously and I don't expect it to pick back up until the water clarity cleans up which could be a while.
