El Cazador Fishing Charters

Head off on an exciting fishing adventure in Jacksonville Beach with “El Cazador Fishing Charters”! Anglers of all skill levels are in for a memorable day on the water with Captain Wayne Senteno. Fishing comes naturally to him and he’s been in these waters for as long as he can remember.

Enjoy a smooth ride aboard his 24’ Pathfinder bay boat, ideal for 4 anglers who all want to fish at the same time. The T-top provides shade from the Florida sun and there’s a lookout tower for elevated sight fishing. Power up the wireless trolling to sneak up on those easily spooked inshore fish and entice their bite with bait kept fresh in the live well.

You’ll navigate the St. John’s River and inshore waterways within 10 miles to target the likes of Trout, Flounder, Redfish, and Sheepshead. On longer trips, you’ll head further out to hook the likes of Cobia, Kingfish, and Red Snapper!

There’s something for everyone, whether your goal is stocking the cooler or battling it out with something fun-to-catch! Capt. Wayne is happy to clean and fillet your keepers at the end of the trip. He’ll also provide all the necessary fishing equipment you need for a successful day.

There’s bottled water in the cooler already and you’re free to bring any other drinks and snacks you’d like. What are you waiting for? Hop aboard El Cazador Fishing Charters and cast your line in the rich Florida waters!
