River City Charters

River City Charters welcomes you to Jacksonville, Florida. This city is home to an incredible year-round fishing adventure that attracts anglers from other states. Meet Captain Travis, who’s been fishing in the area since he was a child. He fulfilled his dream of becoming a professional angler and now helps other people to make their own fishing dreams come true. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasonal angler, this is a trip you won’t forget.

You’ll be fishing on a 20’ Bayboat that accommodates up to 4 anglers. This bay boat offers a smooth, dry, and safe ride throughout the day. Having a shallow draft, the vessel can go to any spot you need in search of a trophy. She’s powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine and features everything you need equipment-wise for a successful day on the water.

There’s a variety of fish species to go after and it all depends on how far off the coast you go and which technique you choose to use. Whether it’s Jack Crevalle, Redfish, Trout, Black Drum, or Spanish Mackerel, you’ll have lots of fun battling your catch. Deeper spots can bring you Kingfish, Red Snapper, and even Sailfish.

All fishing equipment and licenses are included in the price. Your drinks are also included and after the trip, the captain will clean your catch free of charge. Don’t forget to bring your snacks and sunblock.

River City Charters hopes you’ll have a great day on the water with them. Come as a client, leave as a part of the family.
