New to the area, we were looking to get out on the St Johns and learn more about the river while (hopefully) catching some fish. We couldn’t have asked for a better first trip. Captain Chris provided great communication in setting up the trip, and he had everything ...Read More ready for us when we arrived at the boat landing. He guided us to roughly eight different spots, or so, on the river during our 3/4 day trip, and we had bites on all but one catching Snook, Mangrove Snapper, Trout, Redfish, and Flounder. Chris’s boat is kid-friendly (I’ll be returning with my daughter) and perfect for a two-person trip. A turn-key charter, he had all the tackle and live bait we needed for a productive day. He even offered to clean the fish for us once we returned to the landing. All in all a great day to remember!
Was worried about rain but never happened. Chris, our captain, was just great. Took us all over the St. Johns in search of snook. Hooked one but broke off. Other than that caught a monster trout as well as several keeper red fish and almost too ...Read More large trout. Highly recommend Chris. Plan to book another trip in the fall.
We caught Redfish, Trout and Largemouth Bass all in the first hour. My son landed the first fish off the day on his 2nd cast.
