Book your next trip with MisStress Sportfishing Charters and come explore the waters of St. Augustine, Florida! Captain Guy Spear can take you fishing anywhere from the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) to the ocean waters 35 miles offshore. With a lifetime of worldly experience to offer, he will send your family home with a great catch and fond memories.

The MisStress is a 27’ Customized Aquasport powered by a single Honda 250 HP 4 stroke engine. This vessel comes equipped with Garmin electronics, outriggers, and a live bait well. On board you will find top of the line fishing gear, featuring the craftsmanship of Penn, Daiwa, Shakespeare, and more.

While fishing with Capt. Guy you will have your choice of inshore fishing along the ICW or an offshore excursion into the Atlantic.

You can fish the ICW using 10 lb spinning tackle and live bait for Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Black Drum, and Pompano. You can also enjoy catch-and-release fishing for Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and Bluefish. Fly fishermen are welcome but you must bring own gear.

While fishing offshore you can troll for feisty pelagic species or bottom fish near the reefs for some of the tastiest fish in these waters. Trolling is outstanding in summer, with a chance to catch Barracuda, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Cobia, Sharks, King Mackerel, Little Tunny, and more.

You can enjoy excellent bottom fishing year round for a variety of Snapper, Grouper, and Seabass. Bottom fishing is usually best in colder months, but still available upon request in summer. Some species (such as Red Snapper) may be closed to harvest at certain times. 

MisStress Sportfishing Charters include a license and all the gear you need. You are welcome to bring food and drinks (beer is allowed, but no glass bottles). Don’t forget a hat, sunscreen, and your phone or camera for action pictures.

Children are always welcome. Bring them aboard for a family outing and teach them to fish while they’re young!

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 running the Navy's charter boat for Moral, Welfare. and Recreation as a part time job 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 Bahamas, Texas, and Florida. I've caught Sailfish in Mexico, Texas, the Bahamas, 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.I
