Bass Fishing the St. John’s River

fishing report. Posted on .

Got up early to drive to Deland, FL to visit my buddy Mitch for a day on the St. John’s River from his Gheenoe. Bass fishing is so different than fishing for redfish or trout in the salt waters I normally fish. They will collectively surface to feed and they are FAST. Mitch is used to this so he was able to cast right on top of ’em and get them to bite. He also managed to get some big ones. I struggled to be fast enough to hook one so I didn’t catch anything, unfortunately. It was a great time though! Exciting to try something new.
