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.
