Deep Summer Heat

Capt. Dave Sipler
July 28, 2016
Jacksonville - Saltwater Fishing Report

Lots of Kids Trips, days cut short, calls at 10pm for 7am the next morning, and last minute reservations with always a full boat.

That means it's summer. July as a matter of fact.

For some reason, someone told tourists that when it's a 100 degrees outside and the water temp is 85+, that it's super "inshore" fishing time.

I've been doing this a long time, and each and every year, "visitors" are shocked when I tell them the best time of the year is Late October thru April for inshore light tackle fishing in N.E. Florida.......because they always ask, after a burning day in the sun.

I find, it's all about "I.G" for them. So if I can, that's what I'll give them.

Before they can say..."Dang that beach sand is HOT"

I want them hooked up and getting pulled on.

And SHARK fishing is what's H-O-T, 99% of the time.

I only target ACTION, this time of year. No species specific stuff. I can be way too time consuming, and they usually don't understand the situation. Unless, they are "summer regulars's".

Here's a few of the Latest Trips.

And it's never without it's "Moments".

I find photos, so 1990's...

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.
