Jacksonville - Saltwater Fishing Report
Getting on the water early doesn't mean you can beat the heat but at least you can avoid direct contact with the sun for a few hours. As hot as it is right now the humidity makes it even worse.
With temperatures staying close to 80 at night it has been just as hot gigging at night. One thing that hasn't changed is the feeding patterns of the fish. The Reds are still on fire in the back waters. If you are fishing in an area with little or no current it would be best to find some moving water that will create more oxygen. As hot as it is when the water is stagnant the oxygen level will be low and the fish are very sluggish. The water flow will create more oxygen and make the fish more active…
The Trout are stacking up in the river with a lot of fish in the 3 to 5 lb range. Live shrimp on a float rig with a high falling tide has been working well for me. The Red fish are still every where and feeding hard.
