Enjoy a fishing trip on the pristine, calm waters of St. Joe Bay and the Intracoastal Waterway with Phil’s Charter Service. Anglers of all skill levels and ages will appreciate the first-class equipment provided on Captain Phil Cox’s charter trips, as well as Phil’s detailed knowledge of the area and the fish that live there.
You will be fishing aboard a spacious 23’ Ranger Bay boat ideally suited for inshore fishing in the local area. Powered by a 300 HP Suzuki 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.
Capt. 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 long as you bring your snorkeling gear).
