Bite Me Fishing Charters

Bite Me Fishing Charters operates out of beautiful St. Augustine, Florida. Captain Dale enjoys teaching people who have never fished the area and giving them the experience of a lifetime catching fish in the area of Northeast Florida. From the reel screaming drag of offshore trolling to bait busting Redfish inshore, he offers it all and will certainly do everything possible to make your trip the best it can be.

As a lifelong resident of St. Augustine, Captain Dale grew up fishing the waters in and around the area. Having been a firefighter for over 25 years, he has had plenty of time to hone his skills on the water. He decided it was time to become a charter captain as he looks forward to retirement from the fire service.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 24’ Tidewater Baymax with room for 4 guests. She’s powered by a 200 HP Yamaha four stroke and will get you to the fishing spots at 40 MPH. She has all the electronics to find the best spots and has a Minn Kota i-Pilot trolling motor to serve as an anchor or cruise you through the creeks.

Trips are 4–6 hours and will target species depending on the time of year. Kingfish, Cobia, Amberjack, Tarpon, and Snapper are on fire in the summer months along the coast and are sure to be stripping your drag.

The captain will provide your fishing equipment and licenses. If you’re interested in bowfishing, note that this is available only on an offshore trip. Contact the captain for more details in advance. You should bring your own food and drinks – there’s a cooler on the boat to keep them fresh and cold.

Bite Me Fishing Charters and Capt. Dale are at your service year round. Book your spot now!

I have been fishing my whole life in and around St. Augustine. I am a fireman so I have plenty of time to fish. I decided to start doing charters on the days I am not at the fire station. I mainly fish inshore and offshore out of St. Augustine. I love to teach people how to fish the waters here and enjoy having them catch fish they have never experienced before.
