First Coast Inshore Fishing offer light tackle and fly fishing charters in northeast Florida in Ponte Vedra Beach, Jacksonville, and the surrounding area. Come join Captain Chaz Adams for a fun day on the water!

Captain Chaz fishes aboard a 19 ft Pathfinder center console boat that has been built specifically for providing a comfortable and versatile ride in inshore and nearshore waters. The boat comfortably accommodates up to four anglers plus the guide, and it is equipped with Lowrance electronics, a Minn Kota trolling motor, and a Power Pole anchoring system to give you the best conditions for catching spooky inshore fish.

Choose between a half day and a full day trip and get ready for a light tackle fishing adventure. Captain Chaz provides both fly fishing and light tackle spinning gear, so you can choose which style suits you best or try a combination of the two. With target fish including Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Tarpon, and Cobia, this is a great opportunity to enjoy some seriously fun fishing.

Captain Chaz will provide all the gear, licensing, and beverages you will need during your trip, so just bring yourself, some snacks, and a camera, and get ready for a great day on the water.

The best fishing experience I have ever been on. We landed some huge fish on one of the most memorable days of my life. If I’m ever back in Jacksonville for a couple days, I know where to go.

Thanks Andrew!  What an awesome morning we had.  Great inshore bite on the redfish and a blast taking on the big sharks!!

Wind was too strong. We should have cancelled trip.  We spent the first hour looking for a calm place to fish.

Hi Tom,

Enjoyed having you and your son in laws on board.  I offered to cancel the day before and at the dock the day of and your crew still insisted on going.  Glad we managed a couple of fish for the table despite the windy conditions.
