Crappie and Bass Fishing On The St Johns River
I guided Al and his dad Ken repeat customers of mine and we went out on the river to catch some crappies, we also call them Specks here in Florida.
We caught 5 of them in the first hour and a half just drifting down the river, we then went shiner fishing for bass and we caught 6 of them we had one at 6.5 which was Al’s personal best the rest were between 2 pounds, and 4 pounds.
The water is receding right now and it is getting back down, the one good thing about the water being so high is there is a lot of water under the mats and we can run a shiner way back into them.
The 6.5 we did catch was on a bed so we’re starting to see fish bedding hopefully, it will be a really good season this year.
