St. Johns River


Recommended Posts

So I am taking a trip down to the St. Johns River in April either the 1st or 2nd week. Any one have any suggestions on baits? 

Or can anyone tell me a little about what I should expect, been doing a lot of research on it the past couple of months.

Might even try the Rodman Reservoir, if the fishing is slow on the St.Johns. Anyone have any suggestions on it?

At Rodman try shiners in the old river channel near heavy cover.The fish are easier to find there than the river.I honestly haven't fished the river for years but I used to do well with black producto tournament worms and red shad culprit worms.I fished the part between Jacksonville and Lake George.It has a tidal influence so I'd fish Cypress trees and the inside of grass beds on high tide and the outside of grass beds on low tide.Low slung docks are good too if you can skip the bait under there.I can't speak to deep water fish there .I've never done that there.
