St. Johns River Fishing

The St. Johns River is 310 miles long and is the longest river in Florida. The St. Johns River is one of the only rivers in the U.S. that flows north, starting near Melbourne and flowing slowly north to the Atlantic Ocean near Jacksonville. The middle basin of the St. Johns River widens forming; Lake George, Lake Jesup, Lake Monroe, and Lake Harney. The St. Johns River features good fishing for many species including; Largemouth Bass, Striped Bass, Bluegill, Shellcracker, American Shad, Sunshine Bass, and Crappie. The Largemouth Bass fishing on the St. Johns River is world famous for the quality and quantity of catches and has been called "Florida's Bass Factory". Low water levels on the St. Johns River bring the bass out from the vegetation and to the edges of the main channel and deeper holes. Swimming plastic worms or jerk baits along banks, sharp bends, and drop-offs near shallow bars is a good tactic to try on the St. Johns River. Bluegill fishing is excellent on the St. Johns River around eel grass beds and submerged pilings with live worms, crickets, and shrimp fished on bottom. The section of the St. Johns River between Lake Monroe and Lake Harney is known for it's spawning ground for American Shad between December and March.
