All About...... "the Bottom"

Capt. Dave Sipler
March 20, 2016
Jacksonville - Saltwater Fishing Report

Gave up on inlet Trout fishing. Gave up on inlet Lure fishing....because the small Bluefish will just eat ya out of lures and or live shrimp.

Since I never get to pick the days I go, or the tides I have to fish.

I just decided, "It's time to just relent, and bottom fish".

The Whiting are in spawn mode, so that's serious table fare.

There's actually some Redfish small enough to keep hanging around the inlet.

And of course it's all about the Big Black Drum, lurking on the bottom at the inlet.

But it's not like I got any on my last trip, where we sat in stiff winds and then fished for hours in the rain.

Reserve your day in advance so we can look st the weather. April doesn't mean perfect weather just yet. Planning still needs to take place.


Target Species:

Redfish, Whiting, Black Drum, Yellowmouth Trout.....Inlet fishing.

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.
