Palm Beach ICW full of line siders
<p>Snook fishing at night has been outstanding but early morning seasons provides explosive top water action with spooks.. Live baits or lures worked along shadow lines of lights draws many strikes, but if lures are not your choice bait nothing beats a finger mullet. The fish are schooling and feeding on both sides of the tides, moving water is a must.
Juvenile tarpon are abundant in back bays and canals but the big 50 to 80 pound tarpon are all inside the inlets and deep channels. Nigh fishing and sunrise have been the most productive, crank baits, jigs and live baits all provoke strikes. Beach fishing provides shots at tarpon as well but a stealthy approach is a must and be sure to use a light leader and small hook. Live mullet and greenies gets the silver kings excited but when in doubt a live crab can be a game changer.
The seawalls and docks are great areas for locating Jacks for those anglers in search of a tug a war. The Jacks are schooled up, ambushing bait schools as they migrate down shorelines. The Jacks will hammer any live bait and artificial lure that crosses there path. The average size of the Jacks has been 1 to 15 pounds.
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
