Jacksonville - Saltwater Fishing Report
It's summers peak right now......hot, humid, and wet.
And everyone wants to go. I could fish every single day 7 days a week right now.
But could i physically take it? No!
The heat is a killer. I hate it.
Problem i have is everyone wants ''everything'' during the wrong time of year. Just because you are on vacation, because the kids are out of school doesn't mean that it corresponds to the best time of year.
My favorite saying is....''come back in november.''
But they won't and can't.
I have a list of whats easily do-able for the last minute callers i get all summer, and it's either sharkin, or going after bull reds in the river.
Most people have opted for the bull redfish.
Noooooooo long boat rides, ever! And many times a big fish hooked up within 20 minutes after anchoring up.

Other species: mangrove snappers, lane snappers, flounder, sheepshead, and black drum.
Jacksonville Fishing Forecast:
REDFISH WILL GET BETTER AS WE GET CLOSER TO OCTOBER.
