Killer Kingfishing Trip
If you’re looking for the softest, driest riding center console boat for your St. Augustine fishing charter, you’ve found it! Head out with Captain Scott to experience world-class fishing in first-class style. Scott is dedicated to providing you with an exciting, fun, safe, and comfortable trip filled with unforgettable memories. One trip with him and you’ll be hooked! **8 Hour Trips:** you’ll typically fish various live bottom areas, wrecks, and reefs located 20 - 40 miles from shore. Commonly caught species include Snapper, Triggerfish, Kingfish, Porgies, Grouper, Sea Bass, Cobia, and more. **10 Hour Trips:** The extra time allows Captain Scott to take you out further to fish deeper water in the 40-50 mile range, where he likes to target Grouper, Tuna, Mahi, Snapper, Triggerfish, Porgies, African Pompano, Cobia, Amberjack and more. Prices include fuel, ice, bait, rods/reels, tackle, fishing licenses, and fish cleaning at the end of your trip. You only need to bring your food and drinks. No matter which duration you choose, Captain Scott's 27-ft Center Console built by top-tier custom builder, Southport. Thanks to its incredible hull design and 9’6” beam (full foot wider than most boats under 32-ft), it’s the softest riding, driest, and roomiest boat in its class. She’s powered by twin 250hp Yamaha 4-stroke engines (think quiet, and no oil or gas smell like 2-strokes and diesels) that push her along at 55+ mph. Yes, she is easy on the eyes, but the greater beauty is found in how she handles the open ocean. Why Choose Captain Scott? Let us count the reason: 1. More Fishing Time His 27' Southport cruises at 30-35 knots, getting you on the fish fast. Thanks to his Rhodan GPS trolling motor, he can anchorlessly keep the boat stationary with the click of a button, and can easily move spots if the bite is cold, wasting no time at all. His high-res CMOR Mapping chip has helped us amass hundreds of great spots. 2. Family Friendly As a father of two young children who love to fish, Capt. Scott knows how to keep kids having fun and catching fish all day long. A primary reason Scott chose his 27’ Southport was to ensure his own kids feel safe and comfortable when going offshore with him. 3. Comfort In addition to the boat’s soft, dry ride, you’ll be spoiled by his e-Sea Rider bean bag chairs and Sea-Deck cushioned floors whether you’re sitting or standing. The massive 11 ft. T-top provides tons of shade, and the step-down bathroom (head) has 6’ of stand-up clearance. 4. Flexibility While it is always the captain’s call regarding whether sea conditions are safe enough, it’s important that you enjoy your fishing charter. If conditions are “safe” but rough, Captain Scott will find a better day to take you or issue a refund. He watches the forecast closely and communicates early, often, and clearly. 5. Exceeding Safety Standards Captain Scotts #1 priority is safety. In addition to all Coast Guard required safety gear, his boat is equipped with a Coastal Commander life raft, Furuno radar, a Personal Locator Beacon (PLB), 3 VHF radios (1 handheld) with GPS and Distress buttons. 6. High-Quality Gear Like his boat, his fishing gear is of the highest quality as well. From the Star Rods and Shimano & Penn reels, down to Yo-Zuri fluorocarbon leaders and Mustad circle hooks - everything on his boat is top-notch. Scott spares no expense to ensure your adventure is amazing. So what are you waiting for? Pick your date and book now! Read More
