Capt. Jonathan Earhart predicts fishing trends from Wabasso Beach to Boca Raton, including Vero Beach, Ft. Pierce, Stuart, West Palm Beach and Lake Worth
November 10 - 12
November is always a great month for targeting pompano on the Treasure Coast. As we approach Thanksgiving I only expect to see larger schools of pompano in the St Lucie and Indian Rivers. Drifting on windy days and casting pompano jigs downwind is a great way to cover lots of water until you locate one of these large schools of pompano. Slow retrieve bouncing jigs off the bottom is the best technique for most pompano strikes. Expect a lot of bluefish, jacks, ladyfish and bonefish in between pompano bites.
Nearshore has been good for Spanish mackerel along the beach towards Pecks Lake on clear calmer days. We are still seeing some tarpon along the beach and near the mouth of Treasure Coast inlets when the last trace amounts of larger mullet schools flow in and out of the inlet with the tides. Also, expect some larger snook following the bigger mullet near the inlet this time of year before they begin to head back upriver for the winter.
