Are you looking for a fun thing to do for a fishing vacation or even a fishing weekend? Come to historic St. Augustine and climb aboard one of the many St. Augustine Fishing Charters. Professional local guides will take you for a wonderful day fishing inshore, nearshore, offshore or into the deep blue water. Northeastern Florida is not as well known in the fishing world as Southern Florida, but that is a shame because the fishing here in St. Augustine is terrific!
Inshore Redfish is king! St. Augustine is located on the Intercoastal Waterway and has a few rivers and the St. Augustine Inlet, where the ICW meets the Ocean, and the fishing is awesome. Your St. Augustine Fishing Charter will put you on not only Redfish but also Trout, Bluefish, Jacks and Flounder. You can even hook up with Tarpon during the summer months as they migrate into the area.
Nearshore, the reefs are teeming with fish. You can bring in bottom feeders like Snapper and Grouper and reef fish like Cobia, Jacks, Mackerel and Sharks.
Offshore are shipwrecks, ridges and the Continental Shelf. This is where the big predators live. Trophy fish like Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Sailfish, Wahoo and more roam these ledges gulping down baitfish and hopefully your bait too. You will be in for a fight on a Deepsea charter. Your St. Augustine fishing guide will know where to go to ensure you get some reel-screaming action.
Plenty of St. Augustine Fishing Charters are located at several local marinas. A half-day inshore is excellent for a fun day for families and for expert anglers looking to hook up with hard-hitting fish like the “Silver King.” If you want to do battle with the beasts of the sea, you will need to spend a full day on the water. With great fishing for all ages and levels of experience, St. Augustine offers experiences that will last a lifetime.
