Actors And Musicians Bass Fishing On The St Johns River
This is Capt Steve with today’s fishing report for the St Johns River.
I fished with Ellis, PJ, Matt, and Scott. They’re kind of from a little all over the country and one live’s in California one in New York one in Melbourne, not sure where the other one lives. They had so much going on talking about where they have been and where there were going and some of them are actors some of them are musicians that all went to school together. They all met down here to have one big fishing trip.
We went out and had a good time on the St John’s after It finally warmed up, when we first started out it was very cold. In fact, we had everybody in as many frog toggs and everything that I could find this morning so we could enjoy the ride a little bit down the river cause it was very cold. We ended up catching probably close to a dozen bass in a 4-hour trip.
Cold is no excuse!
So actually I didn’t think that was too bad we caught fish up to about 3 and 1/2 pounds, I was pretty pleased with that and look forward to maybe having them guys coming back and going out with myself or one of the other guys from BassOnline again sometime. It was a lot of fun to be around them as you can imagine they had a lot of stories to tell.
This is Captain Steve and for everyone out there for all your fresh or saltwater fishing adventures go to BassOnline we will take care of it for you, Thank you.

The St. Johns River, at 310 miles long, is the longest river in Florida. Its headwaters are at Blue Cypress Lake in Indian River County and empties through its mouth into the Atlantic Ocean, east of Jacksonville. This river is unique as it flows north. St. Johns River is an estuary where saltwater and freshwater mix, creating a brackish environment. However, the river is predominately freshwater because of its groundwater and network of marshes towards the beginning. The history and culture of the nearby towns on St. Johns River are rich in experiences. It’s a place that holds tons of environmental and aesthetic value. St Johns serves as a place to call home for people in town and nature’s wildlife alike.
The longest river in Florida
St John’s large size has it going through or bordering twelve counties in Florida during its 310 miles. The river is almost 3 miles wide at its largest point. The St John’s water basin covers 16% of Florida, covering nearly 9,000 square miles.
This beautiful clear river flows north at 0.3 miles/hour and contains about 3,500 lakes, blackwater streams, and rivers. It got its nickname “the liquid chameleon” because of these characteristics. Because of the excessive number of lakes found in the watershed, the Timucuan Indians named the St Johns River, Wekiva, meaning rivers of lakes.
The river flows north because its headwaters are 27 feet higher in elevation than its endpoint. The St John’s river has a prolonged elevation drop while flowing from south to north. The river drops only 1 inch per mile throughout the 310 miles north, making its total drop less than 30 feet over its entire upstream course to the north from Sanford to Jacksonville.
