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
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
Then, comes full blown summer!
You'll have to wait for the Summer Forecast to read more
Do some homework.
Check out my reports and
video's. I do all this especially for YOU.
No other guide service in Jacksonville,
