Fishing Report

June, 2017

June brings calmer, warmer, seas and a wide variety of fish to our waters. Offshore the spinner and black tip sharks are behind the dragging shrimp boats. King and spanish mackerel are feeding along the coast and on area reefs. Amberjack, cobia, barracuda, little tunny, and even sail fish are all available. On the bottom red snapper and grouper are possible catches.

Closer to shore tarpon, large jack crevalle, and bull reds can test your stamina. Pogey pods are migrating along the coast providing ample food for the predators and bait for the fishermen. Large sharks and barracuda lurk in the depths of the Mayport inlet. Slot reds are feeding along the jetty rocks. Ladyfish, jacks, and blues are feeding in the river. Flounder and trout are also potential catches and are excellent eating.

Good fishing!

APRIL, 2017

The good fishing of March should continue to improve in April. Larger trout show up this month, and will be more prone to hit artificial lures as the water warms. Right now the ocean temperature is around 67 degrees with the creeks warming to 73-74 on warm afternoons. Jack crevalle and ladyfish are already being caught. The daisy chaining spawning schools of 15-40 lb jacks should make an appearance along our beaches this month. Similarly, you might run into schools of spanish mackerel, migrating cobia, and the occasional tripletail along the beach. When the ocean temps reach 69-70 degrees, the black tip sharks will show up behind the shrimp boats.

The redfish bite along the jetties, in the deep river, and in the ICW and its feeder creeks should be good. We've had an exceptional run of pompano recently, which may continue for a few more weeks. Black drum have arrived with both giants and smaller good eating fish entering the river systems and inlets. We are still catching sheepshead on both fiddlers and blue crabs. Bluefish have spread out throughout the area. If you reel in a leader without the hook, it probably was cut off by a bluefish.

Good fishing!
