Experience Real Florida Fishing

Putnam County is home to 3 of the "Top 10" bass fisheries in Florida - the St. Johns River, Crescent Lake and Rodman Reservoir. Rodman also made #14 of the top 100 most productive bass fisheries in the nation by Bassmaster Magazine (2013).

Known as the "Bass Capital of the World", Putnam County also offers a list of other freshwater and saltwater or brackish-water fishing. Freshwater species include the largemouth bass, black crappie (speckled perch), bluegill, shell cracker, warmouth and catfish. Saltwater species include red fish, flounder, sea trout and tarpon. Shrimp migrate up the brackish water during the summer months and striped bass can be caught mostly during the fall and winter months.
