I have fished the Jacksonville area on foot a few times. But I do not have my logbook with me at work today. I have fished an area in St Augstine and around Amelia Island, with some success. I will reveiw my logs for beach names and locations and post them here on Monday. Also the wife and I are heading there April 1st for one week so I will post a fishing report from there or upon my return. Best luck was with a guide fishing the ICW for Redfish. Highly recommended.

The area I waded the most was Little Tabot Island State Park. You will be able to walk the beach for two miles sight fishing for Red Fish. The guides I fished with used black over red clousers. Another place my brother-in-law and I fished quite a bit was the Anatasia State Recreation area just south of St. Augustine. I will be there from the 1st throught the 9th and will try and post reports while there. Do not forget to pick up a license, my first stop is always Walmarts to take care of this. I have read that Sisters and Clapboard Creeks are wadable, but I never tried there. You can access these creeks from SR 105 north of Jax.

The web site is http://myfwc.com/fishingareas.html. It takes a week or two to get the licence in the mail but they do give you and id number you can use while you wait. There is also an extra 2% charge for ordering online.

The only thing I caught on the fly was a blue crab . I did catch some blue fish, spotted sea trout, and silver perch on bait from a large pier. Still had fun. I did notice my flies looking beat up pretty quick in rolling surf. Was that just the action of the waves or should I have used a different head cement then I use for fresh water?

I just got my latest issue of Eastern Fly Fishing and they have a whole article about fishing the Jacksonville area. Unfortunately, it came too late to help you out!
