Phil’s Charter Service

(2) In demand!

Enjoy a half day fishing trip on the pristine, calm waters of St Joe Bay and the Intracoastal Waterway. Anglers of all skill levels and ages will appreciate the first class equipment provided on Captain Phil’s charter trips, as well as Phil’s detailed knowledge of the area and this fish that live there.

You will be fishing aboard a spacious 23 ft Ranger Bay boat that is ideally suited to inshore fishing in the local area. Powered by a 2017 Suzuki 300 HP engine, it can reach the fishing spots fast, while its Garmin electronics will ensure that you have the best chance of finding the most productive fishing areas. The boat features a trolling motor and an anchoring system, allowing you to approach your target fish quietly, and to stay stationary when necessary. To complete the package, the boat’s large live bait tank will keep your bait fresh throughout the trip.

Captain Phil specializes in fishing with light spinning tackle, and uses both artificial lures and live bait, depending on what his guests prefer. He will guide experienced and novice anglers alike through his proven techniques, doing everything he can to make sure you not only catch fish, but also have a great time while doing it.

Everything is provided in the trip price, including your fishing license and cleaning of your catch at the end of the trip. Capt Phil also offers scenic cruises in the bay, and to the tip of the cape, as well as cooling snorkeling trips.

As a child, I spent every spare minute on the creek bank. As an adult, not much has changed: fishing is my passion. Now I want to share that thrill of catching fish with others. - Captain Phil Cox
