trip description for 8 Hour Offshore Trip in St. Augustine

Few places rival Northeast Florida when it comes to big, giant, tasty fish offshore fish. Bruiser Cobia, and smoker Kings, are in the area most of the year. Snapper, Grouper, and Giant Amberjack are also in abundance. Spend the day cranking a reel, and take home bags of filets as a just reward. The ride out is in a state-of-the-art, whisper-quiet boat, aptly named Reel Adrenaline.  You can sip your coffee, and talk at a normal voice.  No smelly diesel fumes, or load engines to spoil your trip.  The boat has a bow with a Carolina flair, making it the driest ride in the ocean. State of the art electronics paired with the Captain Adam's lifetime of saltwater fishing experience means you will go home with sore arms and big smiles. Kingfish, Cobia and Bull Redfish can be found close to shore at most of the year.  These species along with Amberjack, Grouper, and Monster Red Snapper are typically in abundance from the 10-25 mile range….less than a 30-minute ride on most days.  The fishing gear is likewise state of the art and compact. Deep water jigging rods rated for 200lb braid, and reels with incredible torque are both light in weight, and powerful. No broomstick-sized rods, and clunky reels on this vessel.  Every consideration has been made to make your angling the experience of a lifetime.  Welcome aboard!

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 Beach Fishing Overview

Jacksonville Beach is a prime location for saltwater fishing, with the Intracoastal Waterway to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. Inshore fishing is abundant year-round, with Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, and Sheepshead being popular catches. During the summer, Tarpon season attracts many anglers seeking a thrilling catch. Offshore fishing is also popular, with Mahi Mahi and Kingfish being common targets. Reef fishing is the main attraction, especially for Red Snapper during the open season. Fishing regulations are enforced, but licensed charter boats and professional guides ensure compliance. Whether seeking a peaceful morning or an all-day adventure, Jacksonville Beach offers something for every angler.

Jacksonville Beach 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 in close proximity to Jacksonville Beach, 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 Beach is a great place to take a freshwater fishing trip.

Jacksonville Beach 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 Beach 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 are caught in the spring when they pour into the inlets. The warmer summer water bring 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 Beach.

Jacksonville Beach Deep Sea Fishing Charters

Offshore fishing out of Jacksonville Beach 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 Beach 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.

Popular Types of Fishing In Jacksonville

The most common types of fishing charters in Jacksonville Beach, Florida are inshore, offshore, and deep sea fishing. Inshore fishing charters are perfect for those who want to catch redfish, trout, and flounder. Offshore fishing charters are ideal for catching kingfish, cobia, and mahi-mahi. Deep sea fishing charters are for the adventurous angler who wants to catch big game fish like marlin, sailfish, and tuna.

If you're looking for a Jacksonville Beach fishing charter, some popular landmarks that the charters visit include the Jacksonville Beach Pier and the Mayport Jetties. These areas are known for their abundance of fish and are a great starting point for any fishing trip.

No matter which type of fishing charter you choose, you're sure to have a great time on the water. Just remember to bring sunscreen, a hat, and plenty of water to stay hydrated. Happy fishing!

    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.

    I set up a fishing trip with Captain Mike as part of my buddies bachelor party and could not have asked for a better experience. Capt. Mike was extremely professional and was an excellent guide. He personally reached out to me a few days before our scheduled departure to check in and see if I had any questions and give me more details. The morning of the trip Captain Mike had everything set up and waiting for us when we arrived to the dock. I was very impressed with how organized he was. The Captain wasted no time getting us on fish and the entire group started reeling them in one after the other. At the conclusion of the trip Captain Mike cleaned all of the fish we caught and bagged up the filets for us to take home. I would highly recommend Captain Mike to everyone. My buddies and I had a great time!

    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

  • ★★★★★
    Best fishing day ever! We told Captain Troy we were serious about getting "keeper" fish to eat, and he did not disappoint. A full 12-hour trip into the Atlantic got us 46 delicious keepers (variety of snapper species, Jacks, Cobia, trigger fish, and more) with plenty of non-stop action, thanks to Troy's laser-focus on the fish. He provided good coaching on the best methods to drop our lines and haul up the bounty. He kept the boat on top of fish continuously, and had us haul up our lines as the boat drifted off so he could reposition the boat back over the fish. We literally spent no time at all just hanging out waiting for bites in an empty ocean. He knows some good spots; for the most part we were the only boat on the water as far as the eye could see; we only noticed a couple of other boats wander over toward us in one location. Action also included fighting with one or two giant groupers (line snapped off before we could get them to the boat) and a couple of small sharks. It got exciting when we had to quickly haul in a snapper to save it from the jaws of an impressive 6-foot hammerhead. Overall an exciting, successful, exhausting day on the water from sunup to sundown. Enjoyed grilled Cobia and Jack kabobs for dinner that evening.

    Mary Lee F. with Troy J. of St. Augustine, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    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.
