It’s been a few years since we’ve had a decent shrimping season. With a decent shrimping season comes some prime time fall fishing. Reds, trout, flounder, and sheepshead become the biggest targets of local anglers, with a nice variety of other species out there to still add to the cooler.

If you haven’t been shrimping yet this year, now is the time to gather your gear and get started. Even though the season is still early, the numbers and the size of the shrimp (mostly larges) are more typical for later in the season.

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.
