Southern Style Charters

Southern Style Charters is a family-owned company operating out of Fernandina Beach, Florida. With a crew made up of professional fishermen with a positive approach to everything they do, this is a team that will work hard to make sure you have an eventful and memorable day on the water.

Enjoy your fishing trip aboard a 27’ Sportscraft boat, which comes powered by a 300 HP Perkins engine and has a maximum cruising speed of 20 knots. There is a toilet on board for your maximum comfort when spending a day on the water, an ice-box, a live bait tank, and an anchoring system to make sure you stay rooted to the fishing grounds. Up to 6 anglers are welcome to join the adventure.

Decide whether you want to spend your day fishing the jetties nearshore for whatever is biting, stay inshore, or head up offshore for some bigger action. You will get a chance to target Redfish, Red Snapper, Amberjack, Barracuda, Cobia, King Mackerel, Seabass, and Black Drum. Whichever trip you choose, you can be sure that the experienced mate will be with you every step of the way.

Each trip comes inclusive with all the necessary fishing equipment to put your catch together. The captain will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait, as well as the licenses for you and your party. Your catch will be cleaned and filleted for you to take home with you and have for dinner after the trip. You can feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks with you.

Explore these beautiful Florida waters with Southern Style Charters, and have a memorable fishing adventure!
