Croakers are hardy baits, live longer and easier than those Summer Pogies, and catch fish.

Instead of watching me catch bait....YOU catch bait! Plus, it's fun catching bait. (and you may even hang into a big Red when you're catching the Croakers, too. It happens all the time!)

Then comes serious pole bending time, just offshore a bit. We either "chum-up" our own shark action or get in the slick of a working Shrimp boat. Which is a summer time ritual.

It's all about being COASTAL....ya think Redfish pull? No not really compared to a 6 foot shark on light tackle, just a mile from the inlet.

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.
