Ponte Vedra Beach Fishing Overview

Ponte Vedra Beach is located on both banks of the St Johns River which empties into the Atlantic 20 miles from downtown. Fishing in Ponte Vedra Beach is incredibly productive with more than 1110 miles of interior shoreline, the St. Johns River, and easy access to offshore waters. With convenient water access everywhere you turn, Ponte Vedra Beach has plenty of options to cast a line no matter what type of fishing you choose.

Ponte Vedra Beach Freshwater Fishing

As you head further up the St. Johns River it changes to brackish and then freshwater. This is where you can expect to find bass, crappie, and catfish with great success. With Lake George and Crescent Lake both in close proximity to Ponte Vedra Beach, there are ample freshwater fishing opportunities. Lake George is well known for its largemouth bass but it’s the striped bass fishing that makes it stand out. With endless fishing spots and a variety of species to catch, Ponte Vedra Beach is a great place to take a freshwater fishing trip.

Ponte Vedra Beach Inshore Fishing

Starting from the Intracoastal off of Timucuan and Fort George Island, you'll have plenty of spots to explore while targeting inshore species. The inshore fishing opportunities in Ponte Vedra Beach are incredible with easy access to marshes, flats, and jetties while targeting amazing gamefish. Numerous inshore species reside here including trout, redfish, Spanish mackerel, sheepshead, black drum, jacks, tarpon, snook, and flounder. While most of these species are abundant throughout the year, each species has a peak season either when they feed on a seasonal food source or the giants come in to spawn.

Starting with cool water temperatures, the largest black drum are caught in the spring when they pour into the inlets. The warmer summer water bring on the flounder, tarpon, and mackerel bite with redfish and trout hitting hardest in the fall. Sheepshead move in during the winter months where they form tight groups near structure making them easier to target.

Whether you want to target one species or just relax and catch a mixed bag, you can do it with an inshore fishing trip to Ponte Vedra Beach.

Ponte Vedra Beach Offshore Fishing

Offshore fishing out of Ponte Vedra Beach provides plenty of opportunities to catch a wide variety of prized sportfish. Take a short boat ride to open water and you will have a decision to make. Troll for kingfish, cobia, marlin, sailfish, and mahi-mahi, or deep drop for snapper and grouper species over structure. In addition, the area is home to the biggest wahoo tournament in the world, the Northeast Florida Wahoo Shootout.

A normal trolling assortment of rods and outriggers is preferred for kingfish, cobia, and mahi-mahi but in Florida, they kite fish for monsters. This unique approach of attaching a trolling line to a kite that flys behind the boat is used to catch tuna, billfish, and wahoo.

With offshore fishing in Ponte Vedra Beach being so productive it’s a tough decision to make. Contact Captain Experiences to book a charter and get in on the action next February/March.
