It's time for BIGGER game

Capt. Dave Sipler
May 1, 2014
Jacksonville - Saltwater Fishing Report

There's two things that keep me up at night planning and dreaming of...Giant Trophy sized Speckled Trout, and hungry Monster Sharks.

WHY?? Such a wacky combo?

Because, for both when pursued during the proper time of year means;

NO LONG BOAT RIDES!!!!!!!!!

And so far this year (2014) the Trout fishing has been one big BUST. Sure, I had a few days where it was limits galore in minutes, and Trout to 7-1/2 pounds, very easily.

Right now, on the right tide, I'll dabble in some Light tackle fun along the Jetty rocks. For Weakfish & Pompano, along with some Redfish.

But, the trophy Specks have been almost NIL & VOID, along the big Jetties I fish daily.

But that's essentially over right now for me. I'll maybe give them a little try again in deep summer, topwater lure fishing for fun. But, right now it's time to gear up, get in the mind-set (YOU) for some drag screamin' bigger game action.

HERE's a shake down cruise. Of a day this week where I went and looked for a giant and the last bite of the day was it. Smoking a AVET 50 wide, and found where the weak link was.

LESSON LEARNED! And fixed.

Oh, this is what gets my blood going this time of year. Start out chasing the shrimp boats, catch some 100 pounders hopefully. Then, later on go do our own Chum & drift fishing.

Other species could included: Bonita, King Mackerel, Cobia, Tripletail, & Whiting. AND MAYBE a Tarpon.

More Fishing Reports:

 

Inshore fishing the St. Johns River, and estuaries around Jacksonville, Florida provides year round opportunities for Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Black Drum, and Sheepshead to name just a few. Plus, seasonal favorites such as Shark, Tripletail and Pompano. The legendary Mayport Jetties are mile long piles of huge granite boulders that protect the inlet to the St. Johns River from the Atlantic Ocean. Around these jetties is some of the best and most consistent fishing.
