Northeast Florida Angling
Capt. Buzz Branon offers a premium service fishing the flats around Jacksonville. This beautiful part of northeast Florida offers thrilling inshore fishing through untouched grass flats: you could say it is Florida’s best kept secret. Northeast Florida Angling fish from a variety of boat ramps depending on the season and your preferences, meaning you will have the chance to experience the very best of what the area has to offer, be it fishing the 46,000 acres of salt marshes in Timucuan Preserve or exploring the inshore areas around Atlantic Beach and the Guana Tolomato Matanzas Estuarine Research Reserve.
Capt. Buzz’s brand new 18ft Beavertail skiff is perfectly adapted to fishing Florida’s flats. Its shallow draft allows you to fish in just 7 inches of water, and the noticeably stable, dry, ride keeps passengers comfortable. Buzz gets a new Beavertail every few years to ensure everything is up to date. He always strives to keep his vessels in the best possible condition and offers a modern, clean boat to charter guests. New navigational electronics and a brand new Yamaha outboard engine complete the picture of a working, well equipped boat that will never let you down with old or faulty fittings.
A fishing charter with Capt. Buzz will usually involve fishing the backwaters and saltwater marshes in the Jacksonville area for Redfish, Spotted Sea Trout, Flounder, Black Drum, Sheepshead and more depending on the tides and the season. You will be using good quality light tackle that is usually made up of Shimano reels and a mix of St Croix, Fenwick and TFO rods. Most fishing is done either with live baits or artificial lures supplied by Slayer Inc.
Capt. Buzz is a full time USCG licensed and insured fishing guide who grew up on the first coast and has been fishing the grass flats in the area since he was a boy. He often competes in tournaments and his team was placed second in the Florida East Division of the IFA Redfish Tour in 2015.

This was given to me for my birthday. I had a great time and CAPT Buzz did not disappoint. Under challenging weather conditions, I was still catching fish and had an excellent experience. I would do this again!

Great Trip!! Captain Buzz was not only a great Captain, but also a Great Guy. He arrived early, had the boat in the water before I arrived. He gave me a ton of information about the area, wildlife, and what to expect throughout the day. Then, the fishing was amazing! I caught a black drum, some little fish (I forgot the name), and then tons of nice BIG REDS!! I had a great time and would highly recommend Captain Buzz to anyone looking to have a Great time on the water!
