Hello, I'm new to the area and am hoping for some good tips I can use. I can't get out till the 16th of this month, but I'm hoping I can get some leads as to where to go. I am up for fishing for whatever is hot right now; I prefer artificial methods but am not against live bait either. I am wanting to try out areas in either the mayport or orange park areas.

Thank you in advance for any and all help. I'm greatly looking forward to learning the area and getting some fishing in!

Hello Shad_attack141 and Welcome to JAX and JKF!!!

My best advice for you is to pay attention to the FISHING REPORTS forum and take notes of where the people are fishing and what they are catching them on...check out the pictures for tips on lures or baits used!!

Most people will share techniques and lures used, but NOT exact locations where they caught the fish they did....and old fishing habit is NOT giving our your Honey Holes, and many of us will tell the general area they fished and caught fish, but NOT "the oyster bed on the left 50 yards past the first bridge headed north"....LOL!!
Many people will include a general location, like Guana Lake, or the Mayport docks, or a very specific creek or place.
When areas are mentioned, like "Oak Harbor"(which BTW is up near Mayport) look up at the very top of this page and click on "FISHING SPOTS" and read the descriptions and info about that spot.....give it a try!!!
Good Luck and where did you move here from??

Welcome to the area! X2 on what JohnYakJax said. As a matter of fact I am going out tomorrow and I was doing just what he said. Also this time of year as it gets colder where creeks come into the ICW are good for trout. For reds, find a black mud bank at low tide and fish it as the tide rises. The reds will come up on the bank to warm up and to feed. We have a great fishery here in NE Florida and I am sure you will enjoy it.

Here is a new video that I put together from my trip on Tuesday and covers tactics for fishing the NE Florida marshes when the water is cold. Good luck!
