Sea Love Charters Offshore Fishing

220 Nix Boat Yard Road
St. Augustine FL, United States

Sea Love Charters have been running offshore fishing charters out of St Augustine, Florida, for over 10 years. Whether you’re trolling the legendary offshore Gulf Stream for pelagics, fishing the 21 fathom bottom for tackle-busting Grouper, or double rigging Vermilion and Sea Bass on the inshore reefs, you are bound to come home with coolers full of fish. The several captains that run ‘Reel Therapy’ have been fishing the offshore waters of St. Augustine all of their lives.

You will fish in comfort aboard the well-maintained 40’ Jersey sport fisherman ‘Reel Therapy’, which has recently been re-powered with twin 375HP Yanmar engines. The spacious fishing cockpit easily accommodates six fishermen, and the well appointed cabin and salon allows all guests to travel to and from the fishing grounds in relaxing air-conditioned comfort. The boat comes equipped with modern navigational electronics, functioning kitchen with microwave, refrigerator/freezer, oven and stove, as well as an on board toilet, shower with warm water, and a master stateroom with queen bed. To get the most out of your fishing, the boat is also fitted with flybridge, outriggers, live bait tank, and high-quality fishing equipment and tackle.

Sea Love Charters can take you bottom fishing on the reefs and wrecks from 4 to 40 miles offshore in search of Snapper and Grouper, nearshore for exciting species such as Tarpon and Kingfish, or trolling 40 to 60 miles offshore on the Gulf Stream in search of Sailfish, Wahoo, Tuna, Mahi Mahi and more. Trips include the use of rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait, fishing licenses, and catch cleaning and filleting.

    Full day trips mainly entail bottom fishing, but during summer months, trolling for Bonita, Kingfish, Barracuda and the occasional Mahi or Wahoo can be productive. Spring is the time to target the large pelagics in the gulfstream. Since the stream is 50 miles off St. Augustine, a 12 hour trip is necessary. The winter is Wahoo time.

Currently, either Captain Seth Talbert or Captain Bill Hoge will be at the helms of the offshore sport boat "Reel Therapy" or the inshore flats boat. Both captains have fished the inshore and offshore waters of St. Augustine most of their entire lives and have captained numerous party boats and sport boats out of St. Augustine's marinas. Whichever captain you have, you are bound to be put on the fish.

The Captain and crew were excellent, especially with my son.  The boat was a little run down, but had a bathroom, couch, and working A/C, so that’s all that mattered.  Caught 2 Barracudas, limit of Vermillion Snapper, Red Snapper, Rainbow Runner, Jack Cavelle, and more…AND a 200lb Nurse Shark!  Great trip, definitely recommended!
