Happy Trout, Happy Lures, Happy Angler(s)

Jacksonville - Saltwater Fishing Report

The BIG Trout are on fire.

And I'm lovin' it.

B-U-T, only the early bird get to catch them!

If you fish the right tide.

In N.E. Florida, we're bound by the tides. We get windows of oppertunities.

Schedule your day on the wrong tide, and it could be difficult.

That's why "PLANNING" is essential. Really no different that working around the seas when doing an offshore trip. It's all relative.

I have a decal on my boats console and it says,
"ADDICTED TO TROUT". And that means Gator Trout, really.

And early in the morning, where I find them they don't want jigs and soft plastics, live shrimp feeds nothing but bait-stealers. Live mullet would work, but who has time to go catch perfect mullet before sun-up? NOT ME.

I'm finding they want "sub" surface or top water plugs.....PERIOD!

My favorite is the Larry Dahlberg 5" Wide-Glide made by River2Sea. In sub-surface, model.

It barely fishes under the surface of the water, and is THE BEST, mullet imitator I've ever fished. A close second is a MirrOlure Catch2000.

But, you have to know how to work it!

Max: 3 persons for trips such as these. And you have to know how to opperate the tackle. Meaning casting, retrieving etc.

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.
