So far this summer, fishing on the St. Johns River has gone right according to schedule, and continues to stay on schedule. From winter, to spring, and now to midsummer, the weather has done its part to help the St. Johns maintain some pretty decent fishing waters. Barring any dramatic change in the rest of this summer’s weather, fishing should remain good and only get better.

So far, so good … that is for the start of this summer’s fishing season on the St. Johns River. With salinity levels way up due to the very dry spring we just experienced, the expected advancement and onslaught of a variety saltwater (brackish water) species of fish has begun.

With water temps pushing eighty degrees,
Salinity levels are on the increase
And little shrimp are beginning to show
So fishing the St. Johns is beginning to grow.
Yes, summertime fishing has arrived,
So gather your gear and don’t be deprived

Summertime fishing is finally here, and as always, is greeted with great expectations. As the summer progresses, we can only expect to see a steady increase in the variety, quality, and quantity of our fishing efforts.

There are many attributes that make fishing a great sport. Getting outdoors, spending time on the water, bonding with friends and family — and the thrill and the challenge of the catch. While there are other sports or outdoor activities that might offer some of these same characteristics, there is one benefit that fishing offers that separates it from these others, and that is you get to eat what you caught.

If you have never given surf fishing a try at any of our area beaches, right now is the perfect time of year to do so. Mild temperatures and calming spring winds make for easy and comfortable fishing conditions. As spring continues to progress, the whiting bite is going strong and the pompano bite is steadily on the increase.
