West Palm Beach Fishing
Report Date: February 27, 2007
It feels like Springtime is approaching West Palm Beach and Jupiter! Over the lasted several days, warmer, more humid air from the south has replaced the cooler, drier air from the north, indicating Old Man Winter may have lost his grip on South Florida. Fishing has been decent and is getting better every day for those putting in the effort. Many wahoo have been caught, dolphin are starting to show on a fairly consistent basis and sailfish have been around in good numbers. Most boats are getting shot or two at sailfish live baiting from 120-200 feet of water. Cobia are cruising off the beaches. We got lucky and had one come up to the boat while catching bait east of Peck's Lake. Great news is that there has been a trickle of bait schools moving up and down the coast from St. Lucie Inlet to Lost Tree off Singer Island. While that may be a fairly large area of water to cover, it will be worthwhile if you locate bait you're likely find find fish. The limited amount we found was in 30-40ft of water north of the Loran Tower. We used size #8 sabiki rigs to catch treadfin herring and some spanish sardines. Mixed in were the dreaded hornbelly.
