Fishing on The St. John's River

St. Johns River Fishing

The St. Johns River is Florida's greatest treasure. The unique history and geology of the large, sprawling river has earned it many accolades and much respect among environmentalists, historians and fisherman alike. The St. Johns holds the revered status of an American Heritage River, and it weighs in as one of the world's top fishing locales. If you’re an avid fisherman and nature lover, there’s no doubt that fishing the St. Johns River should be on your bucket list.

At Tropical Resort & Marina we offer a premier fishing experience. A tour with one of our expert fishing guides will ensure that your time is spent in all the right places, increasing your chances at scoring that great catch. If you prefer to fish the St. Johns without a guide, you can bring your own boat, or check out our St. Johns River boat rental options: providing visitors with the best fishing boat rentals DeLand has to offer.

The St. Johns is the "Bass Fishing Capitol Of The World," and anglers from all over come to catch prized Largemouth Bass in the interior of Florida’s beautiful landscape. Cruise up to Lake George where the water is less brackish, and try your luck at one of the most renowned spots to go Largemouth Bass fishing in the St. Johns River. Look for beds of eelgrass and patches of lilly pads where the Largemouths spawn and feed in the spring and summer months. If you spot those areas of vegetation, you’re probably going to spot a nice catch too! Even on a slow fishing day, drop a line or a net right off the dock, and you’re sure to at least snag one of the many species of catfish that inhabit the area.

When you’re on a world-class fishing excursion, you’ll need a place to regroup and relax after a day on the river. Tropical Resort & Marina offers some of the best fishing lodges in Florida, with all the amenities you’ll need for your vacation. We also have RV campgrounds nestled between stately Cypress trees and Sable Palms on our picturesque, riverfront property. Either way, you’ll get to enjoy the solar-heated pool, covered verandas, gaming areas, and awe-inspiring sunsets that Tropical Resort & Marina has to offer.

Basking in the quiet serenity that exists at Tropical Resort & Marina, you’ll grow to truly love and respect the St. Johns River and all she provides. Today Floridians are realizing the importance and fragility of their greatest resource, and with all kinds of restoration and river management efforts increasing every year, there's no better time to enjoy the beauty of Old Florida and the advantages of St. Johns River fishing.
