Fernandina Flats Fishing Charters

Welcome to Fernandina Beach, home to some of the classiest fish in Florida. Your ticket to it will be Fernandina Flats Fishing Charters. Captain Spencer Fox will take you to the best spots in the area and make sure you have a great time on the water as well as return with a fine catch.

The boat you’ll be using is a 17’ Mitzy Skiff saltwater fishing boat with enough space for two anglers. It runs on a 60 HP Yamaha engine and it’s got modern GPS and fishfinder systems.

In search of fish you can go inshore, offshore, to rivers, flats, or the backcountry. You’ll be chasing a number of high-ranking species, such as Black Drum, Mangrove Snapper, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, and Sheepshead. Captain Spencer uses primarily light tackle and specializes in fly fishing, so you’ll be able to learn everything you’ll need to land a good catch. The captain also loves having a family atmosphere on the boat, so feel free to bring your kids with you and have a great family outing on the water.

Fernandina Flats Fishing Charters will cover you for all the fishing gear and licenses. The gear includes rods, reels, tackle, as well as lures, and live bait. Fly fishing equipment will also await you on the boat, so no need to worry about that either. When the chase is over, Captain Spencer can clean and fillet your catch free of charge. The only thing you should bring on your trip is some food and drinks.

Visit Fernandina Beach and enjoy the lovely nature of Amelia Island!
