From Henry @ Snook-Nook - Jensen Beach

Well anglers the mullet have slowed, not that there still not plenty but the runs have not been as long. Surf anglers fish early for the best selection Blues, Mac’s, Jacks and yes there is still Snook. Anglers are casting spoons, cut bait and plenty of DOA bait busters to find their fish. Blues and Mac’s are taking cut bait and spoons, if it flashes or dash's they are on it, cut bait use along shank hook to keep them from biting the rig off. But that is not the only rod bender in the surf, Jacks are my favorite they will eat any thing and then the Snook, a little more work but still there in good numbers again fish early. Today I heard the word Whiting used several times buy mid afternoon anglers, excellent table fare and there all day so do not forget the ice. Now about the Tarpon, getting late in their season still a few but not as many. These fish have been in and out throughout the day, live baits when in and plenty of big fish so pack a lunch.

Indian river from county line road north it has been Red fish and more Reds, from low light through the day. Mid day catch that high tide using a smaller bait, small spoon, small paddle tail or a live shrimp all have had good results. Trout at the top of the slot from Herman's Bay north with a mix of Reds. Mullet have thin out, so that school of fish you see coming is either Blues or Jacks and you make the call do I or don’t I cast in their direction. Still plenty of Snook in the area, big fish well over the slot at the bridges, small and slot in the flats, live baits preferred. Tarpon early before sun up, pick a bridge.
Bridges have been hot with fish, fish feeding all day from Blues to Snook including Snapper and Drum, busy fishing at the bridges.
