Well, everyone thought "spring had sprung" as the spring break's arrived. The Black Drum didn't get the memo, earlier in the month. But eventually the Black Drum and some large Redfish showed good, after the full moon. (see my daily reports blog)

So, the Spring forecast is.....Black Drum & Large Redfish when bottom fishing the inlet's jetties. Some big "spawner" Sheepshead, too. Simple, just anchor up on a good spot, with the right tide (Keyword). I use cut chowder clams, and some jumbo peeled Shrimp. And that combo meal will catch all three!

Float-rig fishing (slip-float fishing) deploying a live shrimp drifting the jetty rocks. There's always a chance for Redfish and Speckled Trout, which are the targeted species. (along with a possible Sheepshead bite) when fishing the Mayport jetties. The Weakfish should show too. And, I love catching them in April. Weakfish are our, "other trout".

In the river, doing the same Float rig fishing. The target species is BIG Trout. Last year it was good until and through May.

Spring brings, Bluefish of course. But also Jacks and Spanish Mackerel to the inlets and river. Which are great fun, for doing a "Kids Trip" (See rates page)

And then soon after, comes SHARKIN'. Either behind the Shrimp boats outside our inlet. Or from the beach to the close reefs. Either hunting a monster, or chummin' up some action!

Then, comes full blown summer!  You'll have to wait for the Summer Forecast to read more about that. 

Do some homework.  Check out my reports and video's. I do all this especially for YOU.
