Fishing in Jacksonville
Fishing comes easy to the Jacksonville angler. A natural home to what is now the biggest Kingfish tournament in the entire Southeast, the city is bustling with both backwater and nearshore potential, equally distributed among the area’s many rivers, tributaries and offshore wrecks. Redfish and Spotted Seatrout are often considered main inshore objectives, confidently roaming the voluptuous St John’s River, Mill Cove, along with the many edges and feeder creeks of the Intercoastal Waterway. Joining them in various times throughout the year are many of the First Coast’s essential game, including Flounder, Black Drum, Croakers, Yellowmouth Trout, Ladyfish, Bluefish and many others. The city’s nearshore fishery is ample with a variety of popular bruisers, such as the elusive Tarpon, Cobia, Kingfish as well as several species of shark, while the offshore adventurer has the blue waters of the Gulf and the Atlantic to look forward to, dominated by the likes of Sailfish, Wahoo, Tuna and Mako Sharks!
