Three Day Florida Fishing Mania
When traveling to Florida you must experience the endless opportunities to get in the outdoors. You can spend a Three Day Florida Fishing Mania with family or friends. St Augustine, FL offers some of the best fishing you can set your hook into. I never could have imagined the amount of memories that could be created with Captain Wayne.
Captain Brad had the pleasure of fishing with Laura and her dad Jim. They were traveling from Chicago on vacation with no expectation to what was to come. Laura was surprising her dad on a Florida Fishing adventure of a lifetime over the course of three days.
St Augustine Bass Fishing
The first day out was spent St Johns River Bass Fishing. St Johns River is looking beautiful this time of year. All the tributaries as well are fantastic this time of year. Fall is the perfect time to soak in the scenery and explore new parts of the lake. You could be highly surprised at what you can experience on a lake this size.
Laura and Jim enjoyed the partly cloudy weather conditions with temperatures in the mid 90s. While waiting on the bite, they sat back and relaxed with a nice breeze in the air. Great weather promotes a great bite this time of year as they put over 20 largemouth bass in the boat. They caught some quality ones too with the biggest weighing 5 pounds 4 ounces.
They both shared the passion for fishing but never got a chance to key in on artificial baits. Wild caught shiners were the most effective technique to catch largemouth bass on Lake Ashby. It is also very exciting since you never know when you are going to land that fish you have been dreaming of.
St Augustine Deep Sea Fishing
Captain Wayne adventured out to something different on their second day. St Augustine Deep Sea Fishing for Grouper, Snapper, and Mahi Mahi or Dolphin was something that was always fascinating to Laura and Jim. There is nothing like cruising off the shores of the beach and into an unpredictable day out in the ocean.
We had a window of great weather for most of the day with storms expected for the afternoon. The seas were at 2 to 4 foot most of the day which wasn’t a problem for catching fish.
Laura and Jim really wanted to catch this delicious fish that they haven’t gotten the chance to do before. We made it happen with a slow start catching non-keepers. Being patient is the game while you are Florida Fishing and we finally connected with the keeper we were waiting for.
It was not long after that one keeper that they got to experience something they would never forget. Two more hits and fish started a Mania that was highly unexpected. We came across a school of Mahi that rewarded us with 40 Mahi in the boat. It is always good to preserve the fishery so we only kept 14 of them and released the rest.
After an experience like that their arms were very tired and their faces were sore from the amount of laughs and smiles. They had dinner for multiple nights and they called it a day.
St Augustine Inshore Fishing
On their final day with Captain Brad was something they wanted to check off their bucket list for a long time. Bull Redfish has always been the species that they have wanted to catch. St Augustine is the perfect location to catch a variety of the species, especially your first Redfish, Black Drum, or Sea Trout.
It was looking like a great day again with beautiful weather for another amazing fishing trip. The mostly sunny conditions promoted excellent fishing. A mix of 25 Redfish and Black Drum were caught along with a few Snook. They were excited to catch the quality Redfish they did.
One of the many things people love about Redfish fishing is the fight they put up. You could never imagine the strength they have when they are on the end of your line. Laura and Jim thoroughly enjoyed catching their first Bull Redfish.
It was truly an honor and my pleasure to provide Jim a gift from Laura that they will never forget. I am looking forward to the next time they return to catch more of these incredible species here in Florida.
If you are looking for a memorable fishing adventure that will provide you stories for a lifetime, do not look further than the great state of Florida. We can provide all that you need to enjoy a great day out on the water with the ones that are important to you.
I know next time I am visiting Florida and St Augustine, I will be chasing all the species I can from salt to freshwater!
