    You will be fishing the local reefs for Kingfish and other predatory fish. This is a great choice for families and experienced anglers alike. Fishing the close reefs offers many big game fish without the long run of a Gulf Stream trip. You start fishing sooner and can be back for lunch at one of the many waterfront restaurants St. Augustine has to offer.

I was born and raised in St. Augustine. I have been fishing in the Saint Augustine area since I was 3 years old. My life has always revolved around fishing – I became hooked on fishing after winning the junior angler category in a local tournament. This is why I strongly encourage young kids to join in on fishing trips to start learning and loving the sport. My father and I would go offshore fishing almost every weekend, weather permitting. This helped my fishing knowledge grow in technique and location in the Saint Augustine area. Not only did I learn from my father, but also from various captains, who have taught me almost everything I know. This varies in type of fishing from live bait fishing on nearshore wrecks to high speed trolling for Wahoo.
