If you’re a fan of excellent inshore and nearshore fishing, fighting a massive Black Drum or Bull Redfish, then you’re in for a treat with All Water Expeditions! They’re the premier inshore and nearshore charter in St. Augustin and will put you on the hottest bite around – Captain James Canelos has been fishing the area his entire life, he’s a true “local”.

You’ll be fishing from their 22’ Pathfinder, an outstanding flats boat. Her shallow draft makes her perfectly suitable for fishing these waters, with only 4.5’’ when loaded with an engine and fuel. She can comfortably hold up to 3 anglers fishing at the same time, without bumping elbows. You’ll be propelled across the flats thanks to the 150 HP Yamaha outboard engine.

Captain James Canelos will be your guide and instructor on this fishing adventure. He’ll instruct and assist you in fishing the gorgeous species that inhabit this area by using light tackle and fly fishing. You can target a variety of fish such as the Flounder, Spotted Seatrout, Jack Crevalle, Cobia, Tripletail, and others you run into. Live bait is available for use on this charter.

Children are welcome with All Water Expeditions and Capt. James loves getting young anglers hooked on fishing. All required equipment will be provided to you by the charter. Customers are advised to bring sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, adequate clothing, and a waterproof camera to take pictures of their prized catch!

Captain James Canelos has been fishing the bountiful waters of St. Augustine his entire life. He truly loves the outdoors and on trips with him you'll learn about the local waters and the fish living there. A trip with him is very pleasant as Capt. James is all about making sure you have as much fun as possible on his trips. Fishing is his passion and he wants to share that joy and experience with everyone he can. When asked, he said he couldn't imagine ever wanting to do anything else with his life – that's the kind of dedication you get from Capt. James!
