Fly Fishing in Jacksonville

Countless visitors flock to Jacksonville each year to visit its numerous museums and cultural sites, play golf, and experience its rich nature. But for many anglers out there, it's all about the fly fishing Jacksonville has in store. 
 
The area is known as one of the best backcountry fishing spots in the country. The Intracoastal Waterway's creeks and canals, flats, and other shallow water hotspots are a true fly fishing heaven. There's no better way to get the most out of these skinny waters than aboard an experienced Jacksonville fishing charter. 
 

What to Expect  

 
The fly fishing Jacksonville, FL is famous for involves catching anything from Redfish and Spotted Seatrout to Flounder, Bluefish, Cobia, Sheepshead, Jack Crevalle, Spanish Mackerel, Black Drum, and even Sharks. 
 
Redfish is by far the most popular species to catch on the fly here, and the city is known as the epicenter of "fly fishing for Redfish" by many passionate anglers. It's common to sight fish for Reds in the tidal marsh creeks using bait fish, shrimp, crab, and black patterns. 
 
The famous St. Johns River and Mayport Inlet are known as one of the most diverse ecosystems in the country, exploding with diversity and abundance of species. Fly fishing for Sharks is especially productive here. 
 
All this is possible on both shorter and longer trips, though longer trips are recommended for more experienced anglers hoping to target multiple species. In addition to these year-round trips, don't miss the opportunity to fish during "flood tides" happening from July to November – this unique event is on the bucket list of many die-hard fly fishermen. 
 

How to Prepare 

 
Some local charters provide fly fishing gear, some don't, so make sure to check what's included before the trip. Fishing licenses are covered if you fish with a licensed charter, so no need to worry about getting them. Bring any food and drinks of your choice, sunglasses, hats, and personal belongings. 
 
Fly fishing in Jacksonville is suitable for anglers of all ages and skill levels, so don't hesitate if you're still learning the ropes. Local guides will show you all the tricks and hotspots, and make sure you go home with some serious bragging rights.

I watched this guy work with other captains who were much younger than him and obviously have learned from him. They have a community that work with one another to help each other catch the best that they can catch. This is the guy to go for.

The type of fishing we did was backwater with a depth from 3ft to 20ft. The fishing in the backwater was better than expected. So, yes I would recommend fishing in Jacksonville.

Make sure you have a helper. When they get to biting, it can be one after another. Always good to be able to keep up.

Choose to book captain daves and remember to put on sunscreen. No matter the top situation, the water still reflects that light.

Just make sure that the Captain of the boat you choose has plenty of experience, because they know where the fish are going to be that day.
