Fishing is one of the great pastimes of locals living in Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach, Jacksonville Beach and Ponte Vedra. On the weekends you’ll see fishing boats being hauled behind trucks, residents clad in board shorts carting out chairs and poles to the beach for surf fishing or the pier will be packed with fishermen.
If you’re interested in starting a new hobby, fishing is definitely one to try if you live in the beaches area. You’ll discover a whole new community of fishermen dedicated to the nature and tranquility that comes with this partaking in this cherished activity.
Speaking of nature, you’ll find some of the most beautiful and off-the-beaten-track spots on Northeast Florida’s waterways. Here are our top 3 favorites.
If you spend your day out in this protected area, every part of your trip will feel like you’re in another world. The drive out there on A1A South is one of the most scenic coastal drives, and Guana Park is just stunning with smooth dunes and empty beachfront- especially at sunset. You can surf fish on the beach or cast out into Lake Ponte Vedra, where you might get lucky with a flounder, sea trout, black drum or redfish.
Go for the big fish, such as bonita, tuna, sea bass and baracuda at the Jetties. This is where the St. John’s River meets the Atlantic Ocean, making for an action packed adventure. You can join Capt. Dave Sipler for a sportfishing charter, so you’ll be sure to hit all the best offshore spots.
It’s always a good time on the pier, where you can angle for deep sea fish with other jolly fishermen. Not only is the pier located in the heart of the beaches area, but you’re close to all of the best waterfront bars and restaurants. The pier also has its own concession stand and tackle shop, so all you need to do is show up with your pole and get ready for a day of fishing.
