It's finally here.  Variety "is" the spice of fishing life.

If you think November isn't considered a winter month in the lower 48 states.  Take a trip to N. Dakota!

It may not be 10 degrees and snowing here in ole J-ville, but it's still officially winter.  And in N. Florida, the varieties of fish species, I believe is what makes fishing so much fun when inshore fishing.  (ie: the river, ICW, the local inlets)

Just this week, my charter customers and I fished out of Mayport and caught;  Redfish, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Croakers, Whiting, Mangrove Snapper, Weakfish (locally called: Yellowmouth Trout) Pigfish, Pompano, Jack Crevalle, Flounder, Ladyfish, Lookdowns, Bonnethead Shark, Atlantic Sharpnose Shark, Seabass, Bank Bass, and yes, even Toadfish and Hardhead Catfish.

And a good amount of that list, all in the same day!

I normally have people "not" from around here on my boat for a day of fishing.  Surprisingly, locals are outnumbered 10 to 1, by people not from Jacksonville or even Florida.  So, the variety of species caught in a day is a real mind bender for them.  And very much FUN.

Of course, there's those fish we all want to catch.  And even I have to take a step back sometimes and enjoy people having "enjoyment" with whatever is on their hook.  Of course, I'll be targeting certain species.  But many times, the targeted species are not the easiest to catch, or even the most exciting.

Keep all that in mind.  Especially if your kids, the infrequent fishing wife, or visiting in-laws, are out fishing with you over the upcoming holidays.

As I always say, "IT'S GO TIME".  The winter fishing season (aka: No sweatin' fishing) is the best you'll get in Jacksonville for the inshore fisherman/woman.

I live all summer in waiting for, RIGHT NOW!
