St Marks River

Postby woodstock52 » November 1st, 2019, 8:41 am

I was able to get off work before 1 pm Thursday 10/31, so I fished in the upper St Marks for two hours in the heavy wind looking for bass.
Was not really expecting a lot of action, but always love being on the water.
2nd cast produced a 3lbs fish. Then picked up 8 more of small to medium ones. Then on my last cast & my 10th fish (I was 100 feet from my place) I pulled in a 4 1/4lbs fish. He was released in front of my dock.
All were released to fight another day.
Great day, home in time to go watch the Lighthouse Light turn on.

Sweet. What were you throwing? I keep thinking about doing that or pulling the skiff to Lake Iamonia or similar when the conditions at the coast won't let me get out.

That's very cool they've restored the beacon at the Lighthouse. Long time coming, but worth the wait.

Nice.

This is why I need a small skiff.

Is the light only at dark, or will it run 24/7?

They are taking public comments on the lighting schedule.

:thumbup: :thumbup: Nicely done! We used to bas fish the upper St. Marks in winter, Dad liked to throw a small gold rapala and did real good on it. Got a buddy that catches them there on plastic worms.

Make sure you stop by and say hello if you're up there :beer:

Will do, but it probably won't be until after duck season. I don't want to get in Bman's way. :lol:

I toss a Baby Bush Hog. I love working the Upper area, mostly because it gets a lot less traffic due to the rock piles. Most of the time it's just me & nature. I counted 3 Manatee's, Blue Heron, 2 Ibis, 2 egret's, plus 1 Limpkin, & no People.

By upper St Marks do you mean simply upriver from Newport? Or do you mean the upper St Marks that I’ve (vaguely) posted about before?

Nice to hear they biting good, Been wanting to take my boy up that way to get some bass fishing ( he loves bass fishing more than anything) does the tides affect the bite much , incoming or outgoing better ?

I have a place on Old Magnolia Rd. So I am mostly fishing between he upper rockpiles & the Rise (power lines) Tide does have some effect, but its minor.
