Weakfish caught at Jacksonville Beach Weakfish caught at Jacksonville Beach

Jacksonville Beach - I got down to the beach about 7:30 AM which was a few minutes before high tide.  The tide didn't come in as far it typically does this time of year, but there was plenty of deep water within casting distance.  I casted out half a finger mullet and let it soak for about half an hour without a single bite, so I cahgned to shrimp flavored Fishbites.  I started getting bites immediately and pulled in a couple of small croakers.  I continued to pull in small spot and croakers, for the next couple of hours.  A few of the croakers were decent sized so I threw them in the cooler for lunch.  Around 10:30am I felt a hard hit and hooked what felt like a much bigger fish.  It turned out to be a weakfish about 18 inches long.  I knew it was some kind of trout, but in the past I had only caught spotted sea trout, so I had to look it up to identify it.  The weakfish, despite it's name, put up a good fight.  I took home 4 croakers and the weakfish, whcih we ate for a late lunch.  I had a blast as usual.  If you are interested in publish your fishing reports, please shoot me a quick email and I will send you instructions.  Tight Lines!!
