Fernandina Beach to Flagler Beach

Capt. Roger Bump covers inshore and offshore fishing in Northeast Florida from Fernandina Beach to Flagler Beach, including Jacksonville and Saint Augustine.

November 26 - 28



A strong cold front will dominate this holiday weekend. Fishing offshore will be a maybe if winds back off by Sunday. Wahoo will be a definite target for trollers. Bottom species will be grouper, triggerfish and cobia on wrecks from around 100 feet to 160 feet. Jetty anglers are catching sheepshead, but the cold weather makes getting fiddler crabs a chore. Call around to make sure fiddler crabs are available, then go get a pint or two and keep them in bucket well ahead of fishing.


Speckled trout should be on a feed, especially with this cold and no more full moon effects lingering from last weekend. Try slow suspending sinking lures, jigs and plastics. Red and white is a go-to color to try when it’s cold. Bait anglers tossing live shrimp on a jighead will have success catching trout, redfish and black drum. Creek fishing should be prime areas to try, especially deeper ones that have at least 7 to 10 feet of water. Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone and make a little time to go fishing this long holiday weekend.
