Cast your line with Muy Grande Fishing Charters and find out just how big fish can get in Northeast Florida! With Captain Jake Bates to show you and your family the way to the best fishing grounds, you’re in for a day of thrilling fishing action.

Capt. Jake offers full and half day trips where you will target Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, Sheepshead, Tarpon, Black Drum, and many more. The productive areas along the Intracoastal Waterway will be your playground, as well as St. John’s River.

Hard-fighting Bull Redfish are in the spotlight here, and they’re strictly catch and release. Whatever else you catch you’re free to keep, and your guide will even clean the fish for you.

You’ll be fishing out of an 18’ flats boat, equipped with a 115 HP Suzuki engine. The vessel can accommodate up to 3 anglers, no matter their age. You will use Bull Bay fishing gear, and if you’d like to fly fish, the captain can provide fly fishing equipment for one person. You can also bring your own rods and reels, if you prefer.

Capt. Jake makes it his business to put people on fish, no matter their skill level or age. He loves working with kids, so if you want to hook your little ones while they’re young, feel free to bring them along. They’ll have a blast!

Let Muy Grande Fishing Charters take you on a memorable fishing adventure and who knows, your next trophy might be one bite away!
