Jupiter, Palm Beach Fishing Report 03.12.12
Submitted by Phlats Guide ServicesSubmitted on 03/12/2012
“Blown away” describes the fishing last week. East winds prevailed and caused for rough water inside and murky water through out the inter coastal. The full moon added swift high and negative tides as well, all this and the inshore fishing was still spot on.
Snook are lurking near docks and seawalls, live baits and artificial lures worked close to structure triggers bites. Drop offs, channel edges and bridges are holding slot fish , find moving water and you will catch snook. Top water bite in the morning creates awesome action using heedon spooks, work the lure in a walk the dog manner, mimic a wounded bait is the key.. As the sun gets up above jigging is the best bet, dark colors have worked well, key is match the water color, dark colors dark baits clear water light baits.
The seawall bullies are still on the prowl, “Jacks“, are ferocious and will take just about any moving lure or bait in there vicinity, Top water heedon spooks worked near structure and you have a ticking time bomb waiting to happen. Majority of the time the anglers are spooked by the jacks explosion as they strike quick and hard. The smaller schoolie jacks are around as well, but even thought the bigger jacks make you feel like Jell-O when you are done fighting, you cant beat boating a 25 to 30 pound creature.
The docks are also a great spot for anglers to target sheepshead, snook, drum and snapper. Shrimp dead or alive will put a bend in the rod. This type of fishing is great when winds are stiff and anglers just want to a consistent bend in the rod, especially for the kids this will put a smile on there faces.
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
