Southern Fried Charters - Saltwater

Southern Fried Charters welcomes you aboard for a day of great fishing with true Southern hospitality. The goal is to get you reeling in as many fish as possible and to have a great time doing so. Spend the day targeting Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, and the many seasonal visitors to the waters around Palm Coast, FL.

During your trip, you will be fishing the local inlets, intracoastal waterways, and flats in search of the biggest and best fish around. In order to get the most out of the area, you will need a vessel that is able to get deep into the skinny waters where the best fish love to lurk.

Captain Chris’ 20’ Sundance skiff is the perfect tool for the job. No waters are too shallow for this flat-bottomed boat, and with a cruising speed of 30 knots, no waters are too far away either. The vessel is equipped with GPS, fishfinder, and quality light tackle. There is also a livewell full of bait and a selection of lifelike lures if that is more your style.

Captain Chris Davy has been fishing in the Florida for over 30 years and knows all the best spots for every species in town. As well as a respected guide, Captain Chris is also the host of the WNZF Southern Sportsman Outdoor Show. The only thing he loves more than getting his clients on great fish is telling the world how to do the same!

All trips come with tackle, bait, lures, and licenses, as well as a cleaning and filleting service for all your catch. All you need to bring is your sunscreen, your favorite snacks, and your biggest cooler. Captain Chris will make sure you fill it!
