Everything You Need to Know About Jacksonville, Florida Fishing

How is the fishing in Jacksonville?

Jacksonville was born of the St Johns River, and with convenient water access everywhere you turn Jacksonville has plenty of options to cast a line. Jacksonville has more than 1110 miles of interior shoreline to choose from, and fishing the St. Johns River can be incredibly productive.

Jacksonville Inshore Fishing

Starting from the Intracoastal off of Timucuan and Fort George Island, you'll have plenty of inshore options, including trout, redfish, spanish mackerel, sheepshead, black drum, jacks, tarpon, and flounder, among others. As you head further up the river and it moves to brackish and then freshwater, you can expect to transition to bass, crappie, and catfish.

Jacksonville Offshore Fishing

The offshore bite is also great, and the area is home to species from kingfish, cobia, and snapper to marlin, sailfish, and dorado. In addition, the area is home to the biggest wahoo tournament in the world, the Northeast Florida Wahoo Shootout. Contact Captain Experiences to book a charter and get in on the action next February/March.
