    From West Virginia originally but live in Jax. Fl about 1/2 mile from the St. Johns. Little more north there where you are from. I have seen some catch some nice channels along Julington Creek and Doctors Lake up to about 4 pounds. Heard of some over 20 pounds coming from below Rodman Dam about a month ago. Haven't really fished the St. Johns for catfish as I mostly run to Ga to fish for flatheads but I have been fishing the more salty parts and caught some croaker, yellowmouth trout, speckled trout, redfish and flounder this spring/summer.
