Castaways on the River
The St. Johns River is a fantastic fishery that continues to produce quality fish daily. If you ever come to this part of North Florida, you must check out Castaways on the River. We left out of this beautiful hotel resort today on a Castaways on the River Largemouth Bass Fishing North Florida Adventure.
David traveled from the winter locked state of Virginia to embark on a Fishing Adventure. We had a foggy start to the day, but that soon lifted and the fishing began.
We ran around a bit until we found the fish. We ran shiners up along the seawall to see if we could produce anything. David also wanted to throw some artificial baits but we could not get anything to bite.
David never fished with live bait before and was nervous about the action of the shiner. Shiners love to run where they think is safe. They love to get deep under the mats. You have to let them travel underneath because that is where the bass lay. When that shiner gets under there and starts to struggle, the big bass go crazy. Either they get eaten or they eventually come out from underneath, especially if there is a big bass following or lurking in the shadows.
What a great day, that went by fast. We did not pile them into the boat but we caught a few quality fish. A little over half a dozen were caught. The best one was right around 5 and ½ pounds.
I can’t wait to fish with David again. He loved the experience so much that he booked another trip the next day with Captain Kip Grunloh, since I already was busy. I hope they have a great day, they are in good hands.
