Palm Beach Kayak Report: April 2016


Atlantic Coast Inshore

Spring is in full swing. Glass minnows will be the bait to match the hatch this month. Artificial baits like DOA Cal Shad Tails, Jerk Baits and Terror Eyz will work well around the mangroves, docks and bridges. Launching your kayak inside the John D. MacArthur Beach State Park should produce trout and snook along the mangroves when the tide is moving.

Atlantic Coast Offshore

April will start to bring bigger pushes of Blackfin Tuna to the area. Vertical jigging 230-350 feet will produce 4-8lbers on average. Don’t overlook trolling plugs like Yozuri Crystal Minnows to pick up a few tuna as well. One place great place to start to look for tuna is Boynton Inlet. This launch allows you to reach the fishing grounds within a mile of shore. Sailfish, Mahi, Kings and Wahoo are all on the menu this time of year. Working the normal Goggle Eyes and Blue Runners will give you the best shot at a hook up. Finally don’t forget about the Cobia. Bouncing the reef will put you in line for one of these tasty fish.
