If you like fightin’ bass, you’re in the right place. Take on a feisty largemouth bass or fill your stringer with crappie and other panfish from the magnificent St. Johns River in the DeLand-West Volusia Vacation Area. Considered by many to be the best freshwater fishing in Florida, West Volusia County fishing has been featured on ESPN, Outdoor Adventures and Sports Channel America among others. Football legend Barry Switzer, Deion Sanders and MC Hammer are among the famous anglers who have sampled our great fishing.
Fishermen planning to drop a line in West Volusia County will find the catch to be bountiful and varied. Florida Black Bass is king in the St. Johns year-round. However, local guides consider November through February and April through June to be peak periods. From February through July, the waters are teeming with Saltwater Striped Bass (Rockfish) and Hybrid (Sunshine) Striped Bass. Black Crappie (Speckled Perch) are most abundant from January through March and in December but can be caught in good numbers all year. The best months for Blue Gill, Shell Crackers and other panfish are April through June.
The St. Johns River and its associated lakes offer plenty of great fishing spots. Lakes Monroe, Beresford, Dexter, Woodruff and George offer great fishing as do the lakes of the Tomoka Wildlife Management Area and the Ocala National Forest.
The banks of the St. Johns River are dotted with fish camps that cater to fishermen of all skill levels. Camping, accommodations, boat rentals, marinas, supplies and guide services are just a few of the amenities available to freshwater sportfishing enthusiasts visiting the DeLand-West Volusia Vacation Area.
