Jacksonville - Saltwater Fishing Report
I mentioned in my last newsletter that a happy Captain is one that knows who wants to fish on what days, especially Holidays.
Memorial day is coming and so is July 4th.
If you're looking to fish my area. Those dates should be booked now.
I have my regulars, and they take the same dates every year. YOU want to be like them.
As of this writing, we have not had the days in the 90's that we had already last year.
For me that's a good thing. But that is going to change very fast.
So be prepared for a very early departure. Because we'll be finishing up by the time it's 100 in the shade.
Well, since my last report (maybe) we had 4 days of non-stop rain, along with very high winds at the beginning of this month.
And to say that all that rain water DID NOT effect the St. Johns River is a understatement!
Just looking at the color of the water pouring out the inlet today on a falling tide, against the Ocean water was like night and day.
There's usually a color change, for sure. But this is really something, else.
Has it effected the fish...a bit. Now what I'm waiting for is it to effect the fishing in the 100% positive side.
Only thing I have to base it on is last years Tropical storms Buryl and Debby. 3-4 weeks later it was "balls to the wall" on BIG Trout.
6-7-8 pounders. Charter days throwing jigs and plastics with 30-40 fish before noon! Now that was what I called a 100% positive.
Jacksonville Fishing Forecast:
Arrive early...lets get on that morning bite.
Plus, I may need time to catch us some live mullet, Croakers.
Trout & Reds
