Fishtown Charters offers family oriented fishing trips out of Fernandina Beach, FL. Join Capt. Bill, a third generation charter captain with more than 40 years of experience. He welcomes anglers of all ages, especially children who are eager to cast their first line. He guarantees that you will catch fish when you come aboard with him—if you don’t, then you won’t pay!
Welcome aboard a 21’ Contender, originally built in 1989 and restored in 2015. This vessel is powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine and comes with all safety equipment. She can carry up to four passengers in comfort. Children of all ages are welcome and they can even try driving the boat under Capt. Bill’s supervision. On board you will find Penn and Shimano fishing gear at the ready.
You will be able to start fishing just five minutes from the dock, and Capt. Bill promises not to waste your time chasing bait. You will soon discover why bottom fishing off the coast of Amelia Island is some of the best in Northern Florida. Here you can target species both large and small, including Redfish, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, Black Drum, and a variety of sharks.
Trips offered through Fishtown Charters are flexible depending on your request and weather conditions. A four hour trip means you don’t have to sacrifice your comfort by spending all day on the water. At the same time, Capt. Bill will make sure you fish at a relaxed pace so you don’t feel rushed.
Fishtown Charters provides a fishing license and everything else you need. You may keep your catch and it will be cleaned and filleted for you (please note that some species are catch and release only). Capt. Bill will get in touch after you book your trip so he can personalize your experience.
Bring your family aboard today and enjoy making memories that will last a lifetime!
