Jupiter Loxahatchee River, Palm Beach snook and tarpon action
Snook season has come to a close, and the fish seem to know this. Snook are stacked up along docks and mangrove shorelines. Live baits and artificial lures entice strikes. Night fishing really hot right now, small hook and a live shrimp and the drag is screaming. Double digit numbers of fish are being caught during half day trips. Four species of snook are being caught as well making for the perfect snook slam.
Tarpon can be targeted day or night. Live baits drifted with current on outgoing tide and you will be bowing to the king. Smaller fish are in canals and bays. Sunrise and sunset offer spectacular views of rolling fish. Small fish are in the back country bigger fish are near inlets and deeper passes
The local grass flats are holding plenty of jacks, ladies and pompano. Jigs tipped with shrimp or a docs goofy jig and your are in business. Work areas were pot holes and drop offs exist. When fishing the flats use wind to your advantage try to use trolling motor as least as possible, so fish don't spook.
Well that is the fishing 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
