When visiting St. Augustine be sure to soak in the local culture and colonial architecture. However, after you’ve done sightseeing why not do some fishing? Well, Reel Fun Fishing has a trip filled with familly fun that’s just waiting for you. Captain Seth Klepal will use all his marine biologist knowledge to help you with your catch.

Hop aboard the Sportsman bay boat model from 2021. It is 26’ and it can accommodate groups of up to 6 guests. The boat is powered by a single Yamaha 425 engine that can reach top speeds of 60 kn. You’ll be zooming from one hot spot to another in no time. For your better fishing experience, there’s fishfinding equipment and a wireless trolling motor available. You can also listen to some tunes over the onboard multimedia system.

You’ll be covering inshore and nearshore locations. There are Redfish, Black Drum, and Snapper Mangrove available. If you get lucky you might catch some delicious Flounder. Depending on your choice of target you can practice your skills in light and heavy tackle as well as bottom fishing.

Families with children are welcome and mind you this is a strictly no-smoking trip.  The charter covers your Florida fishing license and the crew will provide you with the necessary fishing equipment, lures, and baits (if available). Additionally, they offer water as refreshment. In case you get lucky you can keep your catch and the captain will help you with cleaning and bagging.

Have some fun in the town of St. Augustin, and then have some fun out on the waves, so don’t miss out on Reel Fun Fishing trips.

I have over 5 years of fishing experience on the water. As a former marine scientist, I worked with NOAA out of Dutch Harbor, Alaska on commercial fishing boats and most recently with FWC as a fish biologist catching, identifying, and tagging fish along the east coast. This has helped me become familiar with the very species you and your guests will fish for. On and off the clock I have enjoyed numerous hours scuba diving and exploring many of the wrecks and reefs offshore St. Augustine. I am excited to share all that with you.
