There is definitely fishing on the St. Johns river. Not on the tour. I'm pretty sure people were fishing in the area but I didn't pay very close attention.

if you buy your ticket on line be sure to print off the receipt and take it with you. I thought I had a reservation, didn't take confirmation with us and we were not on the list. Fortunately there was room.
