From Henry @ Snook Nook -Jensen Beach

 Surf has settled as we speak and the catch list is a mix.  Good Blue fish bite and this may be the last, when they are not there the Whiting move in (great table fare) and throw in some Pompano for some excellent surf fishing.  Pompano have been south of the House of Refuge and on the Hobe
Sound beach sort of in and out but there, you just need to be there.  Casting Spoons in the morning for the Blues, fish are up close so bring the seven foot rod and cast a little north or south, take the barbs off the hooks.  Snook season is closed so please do not drag these fish in the sand, get your feet wet for a quick release.
            River anglers the Tarpon are in, North Fork, bridges, Cross roads, Power Plant all are chewing small baits.  That little Jigging Spoon that you used for the Pompano, Tarpon like them also.  DOA TerrorEyz in the medium size, root beer with the 3/8 head casted in front of them and let it fall is a sure bet or throw a crab and hang on these fish are about to let you know how old you are getting.  Reds are an early bite, if you can see them they have all ready seen you, be prepared for the long cast.  The cove south of Indian River Plantation, flat behind the Dolphin Grill, North of the boat ramp from the Jensen  Causeway and of course the Power Plant just a few locations. Plenty of Trout  and yes it about that time a Triple Tail from the channel marker north of the Stuart Causeway, yes summer is here.  From the bridges it is a mix of Black Drum, Sheephead and Snapper all on shrimp and the good thing is they have been there all day.  Snook season is closed and that means they will take what ever, just about when ever,I guess they know when September will arrive.
