Fish Da Flats

2510 2nd Avenue North
Jacksonville Beach FL, United State…

Customize your next fishing adventure with Captain Chip Wingo and Fish Da Flats. Specializing in light tackle and flying the backwaters of northeast Florida, Captain Chip is ready to take you on a trip of a lifetime out of Jacksonville Beach.

Captain Chip operates a Hewes 18 Redfisher that has been designed with flats and backcountry fishing in mind. The boat’s shallow draft allows it to reach the best spots for catching the local inshore species, and it can drift silently through the water thanks to its poling platform and trolling motor. Guests at Fish Da Flats can also take advantage of the boat’s forward casting platform, which gives an excellent view of the surrounding waters and allows you to really ‘stalk’ your target fish.

When you fish with Fish Da Flats you can expect to target whichever inshore fish species are around at the time of year you are fishing. Target species include Redfish, Trout, Flounder, Tarpon, Black Drum, and many more, and Captain Chip will provide all the equipment, bait, and lures you need for a rod-bending adventure.

Take a trip with Fish Da Flats and see for yourself why flats and backcountry fishing in Florida is some of the best in the world!
