Captain Alex Miller, a native of St. Augustine and founder of Drop Down Charters, is an experienced fisherman with a 100-ton master USCG license. He and his first mate Chase take pride in providing their customers with the best fishing experience by using their extensive knowledge to locate the prime fishing spots, whether offshore, inshore, nearshore, or even at night. Captain Alex’s dedication to safety and customer satisfaction makes him one of the hardest-working and most sought-after captains in St. Augustine. With Captain Alex, you are guaranteed to get more than what you paid for.

Drop Down Charters offers two amazing boats for your fishing adventures. The Carolina Custom can accommodate up to six guests and is equipped with new 900HP Turbo Diesels, an airconditioned cabin, and the finest electronics for your comfort and safety and to put you on the fish during offshore, bottom or trolling excursions. The 181 Mako Flats Boat is perfect for three guests, featuring a 130HP Yamaha motor, I Pilot Trolling Motor and Garmin Electronics, ideal for flats or inshore/near shore fishing trips. Enjoy a memorable fishing experience with Drop Down Charters.

Drop Down Charters specializes in targeting a diverse range of fish species. Nearshore, we target Cobia, Sharks, Grouper, Snapper and Bull Reds, along with other popular game fish. Inshore, we target Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder and Tarpon. Offshore, we target Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Sailfish and the occasional Marlin, along with other exceptional bottom-feeding species.

Drop Down Charters offers diverse techniques for inshore, nearshore, and offshore fishing adventures. Spin casting, trolling, jigging, live and soft bait, and hard plugs are used for inshore trophy species. Bottom fishing nearshore on wrecks and reefs produces tasty reef fish. Offshore fishing excursions are always a blast, trolling with baitfish or high-speed lures for giant pelagics, deep dropping for big reef fish, and targeting weed lines and birds for the bigger catch. With many more techniques at the captain’s disposal, Drop Down Charters ensures an unforgettable fishing experience.

Drop Down Charters offers nearshore and offshore/deep-sea fishing excursions, including Gulfstream trolling. These charters can accommodate up to 6 anglers and range from 4 to 12 hours. Inshore fishing excursions are also available for up to 3 anglers and are perfect for kids. Our very competitive pricing varies based on the duration of the trip and the number of anglers.

    We had a great time and caught dinner! (Several dinners actually). Capt Alex and his first mate were good at thier jobs. You don't have to touch bait or fish if you don't want to. They helped those with less experience and let others do more if they wanted. Booking and communication were easy. We will recommend and use again if we're in the area.

    I have been on many charters, with many different captains, and Alex is the best! We did an 8-hour trip yesterday, with friends and my father-in-law. My FIL said that he has been on about a dozen charters over his life-time and said this has been the best experience of any one that he's been on. Thanks Alex for the memories!

    Alex and Preston were a great charter captain and crew and really put us on the fish! We had a blast of a day fishing for mahi and tuna. Alex was extremely knowledgeable and amazing captain / coach. Thanks again, we’ll be back soon!

    Thank you Captain Alex and Garrett for the best fishing experience we ever had. I’ve been on a couple charters before, so I had some insight on what to do. My wife and friends had never been on one and they knew nothing. Captain Alex and Garrett were so patient. They explain everything so well. I have never seen two people work so hard to ensure that their clients have the time of their lives on the water. We will be back.

    We had an Awesome trip with Alex and Luke. We got to our first fishing hole by 8am, and didn’t stop catching fish until 1pm! We only stopped because our box was too full!!! Great trip, and can’t wait for the next one!
