From Henry @ Snook-Nook - Jensen Beach

Surf anglers had a testing week with conditions, weeds, rain, surf kind of a ruff week. But in the midst of it all lots bait, mullet, silver sides, glass minnows to name a few and with them came the fish. Easy way to locate the bait is look for the birds, then keep in mind the fish will ball the bait swimming around the school.
Now we know where the bait is and the location of the predators make that cast, fishing the edge of the school will find the Tarpon, Snook, Jacks and a bunch more. Some times are better than others but the surf any time is a good time. Now back to the conditions, weeds you could go a few access north or south, rain well that you could wait out and the surf, well how about your board so all in all not a bad week on the beach. Plenty of Whiting and Croaker to take home but to watch that Tarpon jump will make your day. Lots of access points and a moderate sea, come on down just do not bring a knife to the gun fight. The 3/4 once spoon is the secret, every body seem to favor.

You have to love the bridges over the Indian River, at low light it is an action zone. Tarpon, Snook, Jacks, Lady Fish to pull real hard and the Mangroves, Trout, Drum to take home, could it get any better. Catch a moving tide around the walls, pier or cat walks and you will be in the fish. Cast up into the current and let the tide move your bait but please do not put your rod down, one does have to set the hook. Lots of bait, mullet, pins, silver sides to name a few and all very accessible, so why would the fish not be there. The same is true form Stuart bridge north to JC Park east side or west low light is best, now if it will ever stop raining.
