The charming town of St. Augustine, Florida, and its surrounding waters hold many opportunities for fishing enthusiasts. Captain Chris Fishing Charters LLC seizes this opportunity and they deliver fishing trip packages that will be great for families and hardcore anglers. Capt. Chris Driver is a lifelong St. Augustine local with more than 25 years of experience in local waters. He will do his best you get an amazing and comfortable experience.

The charter caters to groups of up to 4 people. All guests will have their fishing adventure on a 21’ Rabolo bay boat. The vessel is equipped with electronic fish finding equipment, along with downriggers. A Yama 150 single motor will take you through waves with a maximum speed of 32 knots. For a more tactful approach to your fish, there’s a wireless trolling motor.

The trips specialize in inshore and nearshore locations with the opportunity of trying your luck at reef and flats locations. Depending on the season you can hope to catch Redfish, Kingfish, Spotted Seatrout, and Flounder, among others. You can go around catching them with light tackle, fly fishing, and spinning.

All the necessary equipment, lures, and live bait await for you on board. Anglers are also covered by the charter’s Florida fishing license. When regulations allow it you can keep your catch, and the crew will help you prepare it. Children are welcome and passengers should bring your own refreshments and snacks.

When in the area of St. Augustine Florida and you hear the call of the fish biting, book a trip with Captain Chris Driver and make some excellent memories.
