Hot Fun Fishing Charters

107 Yacht Club Dr
St. Augustine FL, United States

Departing from Camachee Cove Marina, Hot Fun Fishing Charters will take you fishing the on the intracoastal waters and beaches off St. Augustine, Florida. If you are looking for a lot of fun and plenty of action, you have found the right place.

Fish with a local like the locals. Let Captain Dennis show you the most productive spots close to shore or a bit further off the coast. While fishing with Capt. Dennis, you will be able to try your hand at numerous techniques, from live bait and lure casting inshore, drifting, and live bait trolling further out.

The list of your potential catches will depend on the season and will include the “Silver King” Tarpon, Redfish, Jack Crevalle, Cobia, Bonito, Little Tunny, and even various types of Sharks, including Blacktip, Lemon, and Tiger. Reds, Trout, and Flounder are all abundant most of the year, while Tarpon, Cobia, and Sharks bite best in late spring through fall.

The ‘Hot Fun’ is a 22’ Skeeter center console, fresh on the water in 2002. It comes powered by a 200 HP Evinrude E-Tech engine and has plenty of fishing space for up to 4 anglers. The boat also features a T-top to hide from the sun, modern navigational and fishfinding and electronics, and professional accessories.

The trips with Capt. Dennis are all-inclusive; you will only need to bring your own food and drinks with you. All aboard!
