Capt. Ron Schurr has been taking good numbers of heavy sea trout in the lower St. Johns River and the Intracoastal Waterway south to St. Augustine. He recommends anglers work deep drop-offs, points and docks during hard-running tide phases. Lipped diving plugs, Rapala “Skitter Walk” top-water plugs and live mullet take trout. Redfish also are on deep-water ledges and in the Intracoastal.

Jacksonville Winter/Spring report

Backwater fishing has been fired up the past 3 months. Redfish, flounder and sea trout are very abundant in the tidal creeks. I have been doing very well using jigs and gulp shrimp.

January 2015 Awesome Time Of Year!!!

Jacksonville Capt. Ron Schurr reports local redfish are schooled in big numbers, and believes next week’s new moon negative tides should have fished stacked in bays off the Intracoastal and along drop-offs of the canal. He’s using 1/4-ounce jigs tipped with mud minnows, and reports the last of falling tides and first of incoming tides have been tops for reds in Hanna Mills and Clapboard creeks off the north side of the St. Johns. Plenty of small black drum are available in deep holes in creek turns, and a few flounder are caught with reds, trout and drum.

Jacksonville/Amelia Island Fishing

Local guide Capt. Ron Schurr says redfish are beginning to school in good numbers in creeks off the ICW during low tides. Light jigs tipped with shrimp or mud minnows working the best.
 The best top-water plug action of the year for sea trout and reds is underway in the ICW from the JTB Bridge to Nassau Sound during incoming tides. He recommends Rapala "Skitter Walks" and MirrOlure "Top Dogs." Lipped diving plugs like the Bomber "Swim'N Image" are tallying redfish near spartina grass edges during flood tides. Small sheepshead are being caught near ICW channel markers.Jacksonville Fishing Forecast:

Fishing Forecast:
Expect redfish and trout to be schooled up in very large numbers from now until April. Winter is the best season for inshore fishing!

Jacksonville Backwater fishing is on fire!

Incredible backwater fishing for huge numbers of Redfish, Seatrout and Blackdrum. The cooler water temperature creates outstanding sight fishing for schooling redfish. The trout and black drum are stacked up in the deeper turns in the backwater creeks and estuaries.

The month of May starts the run of big spotted sea trout in the St Johns River. These fish are very aggressive and are a blast to catch on artificial lures.
Jacksonville has a incredibly diverse fishery, with the downtown riverfront area being one of many options. Afternoon, evening and night trips are available for persons who may have meetings and business during the day. I live 2 miles from the the Jacksonville Landing and downtown hotels which allows me pick up my anglers by boat right next to their hotel.
