Winter fly & light tackle fishing report for St. Augustine

This is a great time of year for fly fishing & tossing artificial lures on light spinning gear here in the Oldest City. Cold air and water temps really clean up our water allowing us to sight-fish reds up on the flats and in the tidal creeks. In between cold fronts we get sunny days with lighter winds that are best for this type of fishing. Small lightly weighted shrimp or crab flies in black & purple or tan work really well for these fish. Lots of Speckled trout have been caught around oyster bars, deeper creek holes & off the edges of the ICW on the last few hours of the outgoing tide. A clouser minnow on a clear sink-tip will help get the fly down to the strike zone when the current is moving. If you are using a spinning rod, gumbo or molting colored 3” Slayer paddle tails rigged on a weedless Slayer Penetrator hook is my go to artificial bait of choice for both reds and trout.


If you will be visiting St. Augustine this winter & would like to set up a fly or light-tackle fishing trip, make sure to call ahead for dates so we can plan a day on the water. Tight lines! – Capt. Tim
