The most commonly sought after species in Jacksonville are: 1. redfish, 2. speckled trout, 3. flounder, 4. tarpon, and 5. kingfish.

The most common fishing techniques in Jacksonville are live bait fishing, bottom fishing, and artificial lure fishing but light tackle fishing and trolling are popular as well.

How much do Jacksonville fishing charters cost?

Prices in Jacksonville can range anywhere from about $500 to $1,165, but the average price for a half day trip in Jacksonville is $629. The average price for a full day trip in Jacksonville is $923.

Is booking a fishing guide worth the money?

Hiring a guide provides a number of benefits and many choose to book a fishing guide for a combination of experience, local knowledge, convenience, and cost-effectiveness.

Working with experienced fishing guides who know the best local spots and techniques can dramatically increase your odds of a great day. Having someone who is on the water every day and knows the area like the back of their hand is going to give you the best chances of success.

Booking a guide is also more cost effective, especially if you only get out a handful of times per year. When you consider all of the costs you would incur on your own such as the price of a boat, maintenance, insurance, gas, high-quality gear and tackle, repairs, and more, you’ll find that DIY is sometimes not worth the expense.

Even if you’ve got a great setup already in your home waters, booking a guide also provides a great opportunity to experience new techniques, new locations, or even a chance at a new target species to knock off the bucket list.

Jacksonville Fishing Overview

Jacksonville fishing charters offer a diverse range of fishing opportunities, including both saltwater and freshwater fishing. The area is home to a variety of maritime features, such as rivers, inlets, offshore wrecks, and more, making it a prime location for fishing enthusiasts. The waters are abundant with a variety of fish species, including Mackerel, Cobia, Redfish, Largemouth Bass, Flounder, Black Drum, Bluefish, Sheepshead, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Blackfin Tuna.

Whether you have a few hours or a full day, there are plenty of options for fishing in Jacksonville. The St Johns River offers ample opportunities for action, while the Intracoastal Waterway and nearby reefs provide additional options. For those seeking offshore adventures, a full day charter is recommended.

When selecting a charter, it's important to consider your target species and preferred type of fishing. Charters in Jacksonville typically cover saltwater fishing licenses, but guests may need to purchase a license for freshwater or certain public fishing areas.

Jacksonville Freshwater Fishing

As you head further up the St. Johns River it changes to brackish and then freshwater. This is where you can expect to find bass, crappie, and catfish with great success. With Lake George and Crescent Lake both close to Jacksonville, there are ample freshwater fishing opportunities. Lake George is well known for its largemouth bass but it’s the striped bass fishing that makes it stand out. With endless fishing spots and a variety of species to catch, Jacksonville is a great place to take a freshwater fishing trip.

Jacksonville Inshore Fishing

Starting from the Intracoastal off of Timucuan and Fort George Island, you'll have plenty of spots to explore while targeting inshore species. The inshore fishing opportunities in Jacksonville are incredible with easy access to marshes, flats, and jetties while targeting amazing gamefish. Numerous inshore species reside here including trout, redfish, Spanish mackerel, sheepshead, black drum, jacks, tarpon, snook, and flounder. While most of these species are abundant throughout the year, each species has a peak season either when they feed on a seasonal food source or the giants come in to spawn.

Starting with cool water temperatures, the largest black drum is caught in the spring when they pour into the inlets. The warmer summer water brings on the flounder, tarpon, and mackerel bite with redfish and trout hitting hardest in the fall. Sheepshead move in during the winter months where they form tight groups near structure making them easier to target.

Whether you want to target one species or just relax and catch a mixed bag, you can do it with an inshore fishing trip to Jacksonville.

Jacksonville Deep Sea Fishing

Offshore fishing out of Jacksonville provides plenty of opportunities to catch a wide variety of prized sportfish. Take a short boat ride to open water and you will have a decision to make. Troll for kingfish, cobia, marlin, sailfish, and mahi-mahi, or deep drop for snapper and grouper species over structure. In addition, the area is home to the biggest wahoo tournament in the world, the Northeast Florida Wahoo Shootout.

A normal trolling assortment of rods and outriggers is preferred for kingfish, cobia, and mahi-mahi but in Florida, they kite fish for monsters. This unique approach of attaching a trolling line to a kite that flys behind the boat is used to catch tuna, billfish, and wahoo.

With offshore fishing in Jacksonville being so productive it’s a tough decision to make. Contact Captain Experiences to book a charter and get in on the action next February/March.

    Our family had a great time with Captain Scott! His first mate Jimmy was so enthusiastic and really wanted to help us all catch big fish. My young adult kids rated the experience an 11 out of 10. Overall we caught 4 King Mackerals (and a few sharks that we threw back). Scott recommended a local restaurant (The Salty Pelican) that would prepare our catch, so we enjoyed a delicious lunch after our morning on the boat.

    Outstanding fishing trip and adventure with Captain Bill. Celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary, I decided to book a deep-sea fishing trip while visiting our daughter in Jacksonville Florida.

    Captain Don is truly a 5 star fishing guide. He's a better guy. I've been fishing for over 50 years, and as I hoped, Captain Don showed me several ticks and trips I'd never seen. No matter your experience level, he has something to help. We had a great day on the water, and had a great conversation. Darn fish just kept bugging us though.

    Dan D. with Don T. of Jacksonville, Florida

    We had a great time with captain frank. Due to the storms that rolled in weeks prior to our trip and a nor' easter, we had to make due with the areas we had available to fish. The booking process was very easy and we enjoyed our time on the water.

    Magan J. with Frank C. of Jacksonville, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    We had an unbelievable time with Captain James and I can't wait to fish with him again. Was in the area for a wedding and was looking to head offshore so we booked with James. He kept in touch leading up to our trip and let us know the kings were running. We headed out through the St. Mary's jetties and set up on the troll after catching some baitfish on the buoys. There were a couple other boats out and no one seemed to get a bite, the kings just weren't biting. From there, Capt. James took us to one of his snapper spots and we reeled em in on every drop. Everyone caught fish and James was super patient helping one buddy who was offshore for the first time. James was a blast to fish with and was super knowledgeable about the area and its history. His center console split the chop like butter. Will be back! - Jonathan with Captain Experiences

    Jonathan N. with James W. of St. Marys, Georgia

  • ★★★★★
    Our 6-hour in-shore fishing trip with Captain Billy was such a great time! He's definitely done his fair share of charters and we were lucky enough to catch quite a few fish. He followed all sizing restrictions and made sure we were on fish at every spot we went to. After, he showed us the proper way to clean fish. We will most definitely do another charter with him in the future.
