About Your Trip

This trip is for the avid fishermen! If you've got some experience with casting light spinning tackle, come and enjoy a day full of thrills as you sight fish for Shark and Cobia, traveling along Northeast Florida beaches on bait pods.

Outfitted with a custom T-top and plenty of safe, comfortable seating, you'll be fishing aboard Captain Franks 24 foot Pathfinder that offers great versatility and comfort. The Pathfinder is rigged with state-of-the-art electronics, a
top-notch trolling motor, perfect for stalking these nearshore fish.

All rods, reels, tackle, and bait will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your favorite rod and reel if you'd like. If your a really experienced angler, and would like to try fly fishing for these awesome surf front beasts, feel free to bring your own rod and reel, and Captain Frank will supply the flies and tackle, and you'll be all set to try and hook into your next trophy on the fly!

Ice, water, and soft drinks will be provided as well, so all Captain Frank recommends you bring are your favorite snacks and drinks, your sunglasses, and other weather-appropriate gear whether that's sun protection or rain gear.

He bought his first fishing boat right after graduating from Law school and became active and successful in Kingfishing Tournaments in the late ’80s and early ’90s. He spent the next 10 years fishing the waters of St. Augustine and Bahamas for Wahoo and Marlin for before he transitioned into inshore fishing for Redfish, Tarpon, Permit, and Bonefish in 1999. He loves taking people fishing and exposing people to the incredible fishery in northeast Florida. He teaches not only about fishing but also about the ecosystem, helping people see all the small things were a lot of beauty can be found.

Captain Frank has been running guided trips for almost 25 years. From offshore/deepsea trips to inshore/skinny water trips, Captain Frank has such an outstanding birth of experience.

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.

We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR Code boarding pass.

In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
