Palm Coast Freshwater Fishing

Freshwater fishing is only a short drive inland and offers unique fishing opportunities. Lake George is only a few miles west of the coast but the water is brackish as the St. Johns River nears the ocean. This lake is very productive for crappie and bass as well as several other inshore species. The wide variety of species to target in Lake George means there is no shortage of fish to catch. If you want to get two birds with one stone, this is the fishing spot for you.

Palm Coast Inshore Fishing

These waters offer quality shots at some of the most sought-after inshore species. The inshore species available include trout, redfish, snook, and black drum with an added bonus of tarpon depending on the time of year.

Palm Coast Nearshore Fishing

With an array of wrecks and reefs to explore looking for larger nearshore species, you will find all the action you can handle. Dropping bait near structure will be the best approach for catching various snapper and grouper species. Trolling will provide amazing opportunities to catch prized game fish like kingfish, Spanish mackerel, and mahi-mahi, which are plentiful off the Atlantic Coast of Florida. These nearshore fish species crush bait and fight hard which is the perfect recipe for an exciting day of fishing.

Palm Coast Offshore Fishing

Head out to the offshore blue water to target the heavy-hitting pelagic species. The range of incredible species that patrol these waters include blackfin tuna, wahoo, mahi-mahi, kingfish, and sailfish. Many of these fish come through the area during their migration with tuna and sailfish coming in strong in the spring. Summer lends itself to a strong mahi-mahi and kingfish bite while huge wahoo are hot in the cooler months. Offshore trolling is exhilarating with long fights, huge blowups, and even bigger fish.

    We booked a last minute trip with captain Austin and had an amazing time catching multiple species of fish we had never seen before. Although weather conditions weren’t ideal, captain Austin kept us on the fish and made sure we had a great time. We will definitely be booking a trip with him again next time we are in the area!

    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.
