Salt Springs is Loaded with Mullet, Bass, and Shiners.
This fish video was shot on my recent trip to Salt Springs. What an amazing place. I'm not a biologist
and I can't speak for sure about Salt Springs' water quality, but it sure looks healthy to me.
Large mullet were everywhere, as were shiners. There were quite a few good-size bass, and some bluegills.
Sorry, but the feds (this is a Federal Recreation Area) don't allow fishing in the spring. There is, however,
a 4-mile spring run that flows out to Lake George, and a lot of people fish that. If what's in those waters
in any way resembles what's in the spring, then the fishing there must be great.
At the end of the video, check out the big bass going after the shiners.
Troy Springs Gar Encounter
