Palm Beach Kayak Report: May 2015


Atlantic Coast Inshore

The spring bait run of mullet and glass minnows is starting to look good. The pompano fishing is pretty good on the beach and so is inside the river. Live shrimp, clams and goofy jigs are a good way to put some of these tasty treats on the dinner table. The flats near the inlets will start to produce snook as they make their way towards the inlets for the summer spawn. Right now using a DOA shad tail, Zara spook, or Mirrolure Mirrodine are great baits to grab a snook. Baits resembling current bait fish like glass minnows, pilchards and mullet will work best. Sharks are also cursing the flats looking for an easy meal.

Atlantic Coast Offshore

Dolphin have been a good bet offshore with the normal spring run of these guys. Sailfish as well have and will be in good numbers the next month. As usual using live baits such as goggle eyes and blue runners will be your best bet for Dolphin and sails. Cobia can still be found bouncing the bottom of the reef in 60-80 feet. Try using a DOA swimming mullet or a 3oz buck tail jig tipped with a frozen sardine.
