MisStress Sportfishing Charters

(43) Selling out fast!
Camachee Island Marina
St Augustine FL, United States

The MisStress is a 27’ Customized Aquasport w/half tower, Cabin w/ head, Single Honda 250hp 4 stroke (New in June of ‘16) and two GPS/Depth machines as well as ship to shore (VHF) radio. We fish from the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW / aka river) out to 35 miles offshore. ICW fishing is 10# spinning tackle and (usually) live bait for speckled trout, redfish, flounder, black drum and pompano (in the spring). And for catch and release fun fish like jack cravalle, lady fish and bluefish. Fly fishermen are welcome but must bring own gear. Offshore can be for sharks (up to 100 #s on spinning tackle), king mackerel, cobia and Little Tunny (aka bonita) behind the shrimp boats and trolling the beach in spring and summer as well as king mackerel, greater amberjack (aka reef donkies), barracuda, bonita, cobia, sailfish and Mahi-mahi from the near shore artificial reefs out to 35 miles (distance offshore depends on length of trip and what’s biting where). And (of course), bottom fishing(on request during the summer because the trolling is very good to OUTSTANDING that time of year) for red snapper, grouper, mangrove snapper, lane snapper, vermillion snapper (aka redeyes) and black sea bass (to name a few). Bottom fishing is good all year depending on the weather and seasonal closures (usually for red snapper and the shallow water grouper species during the winter months). I provide everything except your personal items and food / beverage. Beer is permitted booze is not (no glass bottles please). Kids are ALWAYS welcome on my boat. Be sure to bring sunglasses, sunscreen and a hat as well as a camera/cellphone for action pictures.

About the Captain

Member since May 2015
I've been told they have pictures of me fishing in a mud puddle in the back yard at 5 years old (and catching fish) though I've never seen these pictures. After serving 20 years in the US Navy, traveling and fishing all over the world, and, as a part time job, running the Navy's charter boat for Moral ,Welfare and Recreation in Bermuda for 3 years I retired in '90 and became a charter fishing boat owner/operator. I have literally fished all over the world. I have been lucky enough to fish for and catch Pacific Blue marlin in Hawaii and Atlantic Blue's in Bermuda, the Bahama's, Texas and Florida. I've caught sailfish in Mexico, Texas, the Bahama's and Florida as well. Now I specialize in teaching/instructing young (and not so young) anglers in light and medium tackle live bait trolling techniques, bottom fishing and light spinning tackle (live and plastic bait) fishing in the ICW and its feeder creeks.

Fishing with Martha and the crew was a blast this morning. We caught live bait south on the beach (pogies) and ran to the inshore artificial reefs. The king mackerel were very cooperative and we soon had 6 in the boat (and had two big - 8’ - bull sharks chase one around the boat). We went on release mode from there on the kings as they had all they could eat. We also caught some little tunny (aka bonita) and a ‘cuda or two. Good trip and great people.  We’re looking forward to your next trip in the MisStress. See you on the pond. Capt. Guy

We booked our fishing trip hoping to catch as much Red Snapper as limited would allow due to our last deep sea fishing trip we took in Galveston, TX years back. Guy shared that Red Snapper was out of season but he could put us on fish and we would have all the fish we could eat. We trusted him and he did just as he promised!!! We limited out on Amberjack, which are one heck of a fight to land in the boat and are extremely fun to battle with as well as catching to small barracuda which were fighters, air borne at times, plus are supposed to taste like Red Snapper!!! The boat wasn’t a big charter boat that could serve several families like we fished before so if you are looking for that type of trip don’t book this trip. If you are looking for a more laid back and personal one on one trip this is your attraction.
