Freshwater and Saltwater Favorites to Expect this Month

September means the last of summer and the start of fall in Florida. The stormy weather and newly cool air means great fishing around Jacksonville’s waterways. Dockside Seafood catches and serves fresh seafood year-round. Here’s what we look forward to during September:

  • Bass
  • Catfish
  • Bluegill
  • Tilapia

Popular Fishing Spots to Explore in Jacksonville

Novice and experienced anglers alike can strike gold when they cast a line this month. From deep-sea delicacies to riverbed favorites, our team knows all the best spots to catch impressive fish. 

The St. Johns River is a great place to fish from your boat or the land. Waterfront parks and preserves make it easily accessible by anyone with a line and reel. The river’s transition from brackish to fresh allows for a great variety of fish to catch. The Intracoastal Waterway is another local favorite. Explore the creeks, marshes, and wetlands by boat or take advantage of one of the many docks and piers in the area. 

What Meals at Dockside Feature the Fresh Catch?

The majority of our menu stays true to our name. Locally sourced, never-frozen ingredients are our specialty at Dockside. A few of our favorite ways to enjoy local seafood include:

  • Catch Sandwich: Just ask about our catch of the day! We serve it up grilled, fried, or blackened with a side of slaw and hushpuppies. 
  • Catch Tacos: We’re a sucker for a good taco. Our fresh catch tacos stand up to any tacos at the beach (bold statement, we know.)
