Bass Fishing Around The Storms On The St Johns River
Hello everybody, this is Capt Steve with your St Johns River fishing report. Over the last couple of days, I’ve had Daryl and Ben from North Carolina down and they wanted to go out and catch some bass on shiners. Do a little artificial fishing and just a little of everything. So we got into some hybrid strippers and caught them on steel shad and topwater baits and it was fun.
For two days we sat there pretty much in one area. On the second day, we did look at another area and only caught a couple. So we went back to the first area and caught some more hybrids and largemouth bass. we were fishing the shiners under the cork half the time and part of the time we were just free lining them and trolling, dragging them behind the boat. It was a lot of fun, the first day we went out we dodged a storm. We had a storm go to the south of us and we were really lucky, it was supposed to be a 100% chance of rain and it went around us.
We watch it go by and another one 4 miles north of us was on the radar. So we got really lucky! We had to wait for the storms to pass and the sun to come out for the fish to bite again. That’s kinda strange here in Florida but that’s how the hybrid stripers and largemouth are on the river. I look forward to fishing with them again, for all your freshwater fishing adventures go to BassOnline, this is Capt Steve with your st johns river fishing report.

About St Johns River
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.
