Fishing Jacksonville & Mayport

Capt. Bryan Russell
March 7, 2006
Jacksonville - Saltwater Fishing Report


March is the month of transition here in northeast Florida.

Hopefully with our very mild winter we will get an early spring.

As we move through March we can expect some changes for the good!

Winds should start to subside as the month wears on (Man its been windy! ) As water temps warm it should trigger the annual spawning run of sheepshead at the stones. The topwater bite for gator sea trout will fire off and redfish should re-distribute in the river and the ditch. The annual spawning run of huge black drum is slowly starting at the jetties. There are redfish, sea trout and yellowmouth at the rocks, although you will probably have to hunt for them... The next full moon should crank up the inshore fishing. February is finally over and we can once again chase the sea trout around the river. The blues and spanish will show soon also, and since there have been pogies on the beach all winter, I anticipate a great spring run on them.


The fishing for grouper has been tough of late, Red snapper have been cooperating some, but you have to anchor and give it some time. With the cold water try to give a spot a half hour before you move. The fish are lethargic and it takes time to fire them off. Theres plenty of seabass, beeliners and triggerfish available if yior willing to go 20+ miles offshore.

My favorite time of year is fast approaching..........COBIA!. april, sun, Manta rays and studly cobia! You gotta love it!

Nows the time to book your trips for the upcoming months to get prime dates, as they go fast.

I'll update this report in mid-March.

Tight lines and screaming drags, Capt. Bryan
