St. Johns River, Florida - Freshwater Fishing Report
Lake Monroe

Well we went to Lake Monroe today regardless what the weather forcasters said for most of the time they are wrong.We started out on Lake Monroe long line pulling and were catching fish until it just got too rough so we went north up into the St Johns river between markers 110 and 114 and continued to pull Culprit and AWD crappie baits. The bite was good and we caught a limit of fish before the boat traffic got to bad.The secret today was to pull at 1.2 mile per hour in 13 feet of water, the fish seemed to be suspoended at about 4-5 feet
