AJ Brown Charters

Boat Ramp @ Cedar Key Fl.
Cedar Key FL, United States

Captain AJ Brown has been fishing all his life. A dedicated outdoorsman, he has decades of experience guiding people to fish around the beautiful islands of Cedar Key Fl. Come and join him and catch some fish in the unspoiled backcountry of the Nature Coast in and around Cedar Key.

AJ Brown Charters uses a sturdy 22 ft Morgan boat that has seating for four people. Restored in 2010, it is fitted with all the essentials for inshore and backcountry fishing. This boat gives a comfortable ride and has plenty of room to walk around in, and it even features a foldable shade canopy for those hot summer days.

Choose between a half day and full day trip targeting a whole variety of species on light tackle. Depending on the season and the conditions on the day of your trip, you could be catching Redfish, Black Drum, Speckled Trout, Tripletail, Sheepshead, and Mangrove Snapper, among many others. All the gear you will need is provided by AJ Brown Charters, but you are welcome to bring your own fishing equipment if you prefer.

After your trip, Captain AJ is happy to expertly clean and fillet any keeper fish you decide to take home. There’s nothing like some delicious fresh fish to finish off a wonderful day on the water!
