Fishing Bass And Brim On The St Johns River
This is Capt Steve with my fishing report for the St Johns River, I had Jerry and his son Bo out, and they wanted to do some fishing bass and brim. We found some really nice copperhead brims and shellcracker, about a dozen, and caught them off the beds in 4 to 5 feet of water.
Used a cork above the worm and dragged it across; whenever the cork would stand straight up, you knew you were on a bed. We also caught three bass; one was about 4 pounds, and one was around 2 1/2 to 3 pounds, and we caught a 5 1/2 to 6-pound catfish on a shiner.
It was a little warm out there today; we did find some beds up in the really shallow clear water, but there weren’t any big fish on those. We caught a few, but they weren’t keepers. We released them to grow up some more; anyway, I look forward to having them come back and fish again. This is Capt Steve; for all your freshwater fishing bass and brim adventures, go to BassOnline.
