January 24

O.K. Guys, I have been checking on the shad and there have not been many caught. The big push has not shown up yet and we did not want to wait till the last minute to cancel the outing. By canceling early this will give you enough time to make other plans. We are going to reschedule on the 22nd of February, I will keep checking reports and hopefully they will show up so if we do go down we can catch some fish. It is a long trip and a long day, to not catch any fish.

News letter



Riverdale Park Outing on the St. Johns River

Saturday Noverber 16, 2019

We will meet at the ramp at 8 A.M.  
The low tide is at 11:10 A.M.   

Under docks and shoreline fishing should be good.  
Wade fish will also be a possibility. This is a good kayak outing, you can start fishing within 100 ft. of ramp. 

We will have lunch back at the ramp between 1 and 2 P.M.  

Flies to use

  • Woolly Buggers
  • Wilson’s Bluegill Spider Fly
  • Hares Ear Nymph
  • Rubber Legged Dragon
  • Adam’s Cricket is a good top water pattern,

…and any other small top water patterns or rainbow trout flies 8-10 hook size will work well. If you want to target bass then use larger hooks.

Direction:  I-95 South and take the World Golf Village exit, go west on Pacetti rd. ( 9 Mile Road) for approx 7 miles then right on CR208 for .3 miles then left on 13A.  Then right on 214 and then left on CR13 for approx. 1.5 miles.   Ramp is on the right.
