From Henry @ Snook Nook -Jensen Beach

Cool, warm, wind and sun shine it has been a week for the weather.  Changing temperatures has changed the way we plan our fishing days, it pays to wait till the sun warms our waters, and it is Florida and our fish like it warm.
               To the beach it has been more Pompano than I can remember, from Ft. Pierce to Hobe Sound the talk is Pompano.  Interesting part is the fish have been up close, Sundays surf made it difficult but the fish were there.  Angler’s reports were limit catches and all big fish not one call on the minimum size.  Favored baits were clams and sand fleas and yes the bite started mid morning, as soon as the edge warmed the fish moved in. Plenty of Blues on cut baits, a little longer cast to locate these fish unless you were fishing the inlets, these areas were covered up with Blues, Macs and Jacks.
                >From the bridges was Pompano, plenty of Pompano.  That little jig was the preferred bait, but we had anglers catch them on shrimp, clams and sand fleas, the good part was it was an all day bite.  If you waited for the water to warm it was Snapper, Black Drum and some real nice Trout, mix in the Blues, Macs and yes more Pompano. River anglers had their fill of Trout and Red Fish from north to south it has been a strong bite.  Reds on small spoons and shrimp from late morning to late afternoon mix in all good size Trout and what can I say other than fishing has been excellent.
