Post subject:  Low tide launches at Jax Beach

Anyone know of any good launches in Jax beach to fish some creeks during low tide. I've found a few good high tide spots towards JTB and I know Dutton and Mayport are always an option for low tide but I want to find somewhere closer to south Jax Beach or PVB.

I know I can launch the boat ramp too, but I'd rather stay out of there.

Hello Nick & Welcome to JKF!!!
I just saw your post and wanted to let you know that all the info and maps that you want are in here....look above and you will see: "FISHING SPOTS"....and go there!!

The area that you are requesting is in the RIGHT hand column, and above it says:
"South of Little Jetties - ICW".
Scroll down and you will see most of the better creeks and launch areas and info on the launch, nearby bait & tackle shops, degree of difficulty, and maps (altho some of them so not work very well).
There is a prompt/link in pink/burgundy that says: "Click here for the Jax Graphical Mega-Map View".....and it gives you a good idea of where the creeks are.
It goes all the way down to Crescent Beach/Flagler County.

Tip #1....learn your tides the further you get from Mayport adds some time to the Tides Tables. These are dependent on winds...but you will learn them.
Tip #2...Learn to fish the Outgoing...Dead Low...and Incoming Tides!!
The fish that leave the small creeks during outgoing will be in very low water at Low Tide, but the baitfish and shimp will then follow the Incoming water way back in, and the fish we target will follow the bait!!! Next time you cross the JTB Bridge, look at all the water for fish...and they are VERY concentrated at dead low....and VERY spread out at High!!

That is enuff for now, and good luck!!
PS: Two new launch areas are down at the SR 210 Bridge over the ICW. Nocatee launch is on the west side of the bridge and the new Palm Valley Outdoors is on the east side, and both are good areas and not TOO tide dependent to launch at Low. PVO also has a bait shop and a very good restaurant.

Thanks John,

I've looked at the map several times and have launched out of most of those places already. I was hoping someone had a lesser known launching spot somewhere in South Jax Beach. I live in PVB and go to palm valley a lot, as well a dutton and oak harbor. I also have a spot to launch in marsh landing at high tide, but it drys up at low tide and I don't feel like getting stuck and bake in the summer heat. I just wanted to find a spot with more creeks than Palm Valley that was a little closer than mayport.

Thanks for the advice.

I know it's north of you but take the ferry to Hecksher drive and you'll have access to multiple launches that are very productive.

Thanks Jwray. I've been in a few spots up there with mixed results. I'm sure I just didn't find the honey holes. I'm really looking for somewhere close to pop in for a few hours when I can get out of work a little early.

I don't think there are really any easy spots that I don't know about unless someone has one their keeping to themselves.
