Captain Brian of Palm Coast Fishing Trips is excited to welcome you on board his 2012 Carolina Skiff. If you are looking for a fun-filled family adventure, or the chance to test yourself against some species in the area, his trips have something for everybody.

You will be fishing on his 19’ Carolina, with a 115 HP Suzuki engine. Coupled with Capt. Brian’s extensive knowledge of the area, you’ll be on the fish in no time. Fishfinder and trolling motor will also help you on your trip, allowing you to get right on top of the fish. Live bait, when used, is prepared in advance, so you will get maximum time fishing.

Capt. Brian’s 4-hour morning trip is perfect for those that have never fished before. He will happily talk you through the best way to fish the species you are targeting, providing step-by-step instructions that will have you fishing like a pro in no time. The whole family will love this trip. If the little ones do start getting fidgety, tell them to look out for the dolphins, bald eagles, or even manatees that call this area their home.

Capt. Brian will provide all the rods, reels, lures, and live bait for these trips. After you’ve caught your fill, he will happily fillet it for you too - all you need to decide is how you will cook your catch. Water will be provided for on all trips, but you are welcome to bring your own snacks too.

Palm Coast Fishing Trips can’t wait to meet you and start making some great fishing memories together! Choose which trip suits you best and Captain Brian will see you soon!
