West Palm Beach Fishing Gets Hot
Report Date: February 4, 2007
Finally cold weather has heated up offshore fishing. Sailfish lead the pack as they are here in good, if not great numbers from south of Palm Beach Inlet to Jupiter. Although very rough sea conditions have prevailed more often than not, we have been able to get out and enjoy the hot action.
Saturday morning we fished out of Palm Beach Inlet and scored 3 out of five sailfish in a few hours in 130 feet from the Tiara Condo to Old Port Cove Condos. Over the VHF radio we could hear other boats within range all frequently hooking up with sails, dolphin and an occasional king mackerel.
Still no positive bait reports within reasonable range of Palm Beach Inlet. There have been reports of threadfin herring (a.k.a. greenies) off of St. Lucie Inlet. If planning a full day it may be worth running up there and looking around if seas permit.
There has been an occasional wahoo caught by the trollers working the edge.
Cobia are around but conditions have not permitted us to get in shallow and look around for them. If you see a leatherback turtle expect one if not many cobia to be following behind.
