Thanks for an awesome summer!  We have been able to enjoy the warm weather, and although now it seems like it’s time for cooler temperatures again, that doesn’t mean the fish aren’t still biting. We have seen a lot of flounder, redfish, jacks, trout, and sheepshead come through the marina. Remember when you’re catching these big guys that we want to see your fishing pictures! Be sure to send your pictures to mayport@morningstarmarinas.com.

The dog days of summer are upon us, but the fish have not seemed to notice! The flounder and trout bite has been good in the tributaries and the bull red bite has been on fire in the deeper channels of the St. Johns. Pogies are thick on the beach and the tarpon bite has been strong around the inlet. With good weather this weekend and school starting next week, it’s a great time to take the kids and family out one last time. If they are busy getting ready for school, plan a fishing weekend with your buddies. Either way, we hope to see you this weekend! Take a look below for the weekend weather, tides and an article on safety while paddle boarding.
