April Fishing Update picture

For Palm Coast, St. Augustine, and Jacksonville Area

The first two weeks of April have been great for both saltwater and freshwater fishing in Palm Coast, St. Augustine, and Jacksonville. The whiting and pompano have been biting on shrimp in the inter-coastal, even at high tide. Fish observer Eric had a good day near Flagler bridge catching whiting, pompano, catfish, and sting rays, while Lucky harvested several eating size blue_crabs from the same location. The state park under Flagler bridge features a scenic boardwalk that weaves through mangrove-like backwaters and oyster shoals. Al's Bait shop is near the park under Flagler bridge, and the manager there confirmed that other fisherman have been catching whiting in the area. Fish observer Brian has been having a great April catching three trout over 19 inches, several reds over 23 inches, and a few nice flounder as well. He is kayak fishing with artificial baits in various saltwater creeks in the St Augustine and Jacksonville areas. Brian photo

Spring Bass Fishing is On

largemouth bass are moving off beds and feeding more aggressively in patrolling patterns. It's a good time to fish at intersections. Spring is the best time of year to catch largemouth bass for many reasons. Largemouth bass begin spawning in early march and the fish become much more aggressive during this time of year until the summer heat coerces the fish into cyclic dawn and dusk feeding patterns. Fish observer Lucky has been catching many largemouth in the ponds and canals around Palm Coast and at Lake Stella in Crescent City. The fish are striking good at rubber worms in the midday, and topwater lures and flies are working better near dusk.

Some of these photos are really great I wish I had been there. I looked at this post i'm trying to get a list of the best kayaks with ratings and prices together, how accurate do you think these prices are? You can see the list and some more information/kayak ratings here
