Summers Peak

Capt. Dave Sipler
July 13, 2017
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.

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.
