Best saltwater fishing in NE Florida

The mouth of the St. John’s river offers fantastic year round fishing to those that know how to take advantage whether it’s from the kayak, boat, wading out, or from the shore. The rocks and jetties hold famous quantities of sheepshead. Huge bull red drum run every year in the fall, tarpon and flounder show up in big numbers in the summer, the sea trout go wild in the winter, and the massive bluefish and black drum visit in the spring. Not mention the chance at tripletail, sharks, big jacks, slot sized redfish, pompano, spanish mackerel, and mangrove snapper. It can be an exciting place to fish for those that know how to fish the tides right.

This tiny creek is the last tributary of the massive St. John’s river before it dumps into the ocean. It’s a very unique creek in that the mouth drys up at low tide giving it very little boat accessibility opening the door for kayakers. The deep holes along the bends and sand bars provide some of the best slot redfish and large sea trout fishing in the entire area, especially during the outgoing tides. The redfish prefer mullet or shrimp on the bottom the the wholes while the trout are best caught on artificial lures such as jerkbaits, topwaters, and corkies. Flounder, jacks, bluefish, black drum, pinfish, ladyfish, and small stingrays are also fairly abundant in this creek. Mullet can usually be caught in shallow water with a castnet. Be careful around the sharp oyster beds. This place is usually crawling with kayak fisherman so be prepared for close quartered fishing. There is limited bank and bridge fishing access but it’s fairly shallow in those areas and much less productive.
