From Henry @ Snook-Nook - Jensen Beach

Surf is still busy with bait and Tarpon, Snook and Jacks taking all that is offered. Not many anglers this week not sure if interest is slowing or the weeds made conditions to difficult to fish. If your favored beach is covered go north or south and I am more that sure you will find the bait, the fish and no weeds, that 3/4 oz spoon is the profile these fish are looking at. More Croaker than Whiting, right in the trough so do not forget the ice.
The Indian River is the home of lost equipment, Tarpon, Snook, Jacks and some of the biggest Lady Fish are taking all the rods and reels they can. At least when a Tarpon takes one you see a jump or two, but the Jacks and Snook put their head down and it is gone, I wonder what they do with them. Low light is the prime time and smaller baits are preferred, from the bridge or in the flats it seems they are every where. Top the slot Trout form Nettles Island north on the east side, County Line road north on the west, live shrimp and suspending lures are their Choice. Few Reds but not enough to target, incidental catch. Bridges it is all of the above plus Drum and good size Snapper and surely I have no idea what those Pompano were doing at the relief bridge.
It has been a good week in spite of the weather man, is going to rain, thunder out west, will it be a shower or serious rain, the only good thing has been the overcast morning giving anglers more time in the water. Revenge of the weather man......
