Capt. Doug Charters - ProperLady

Head out of Saint Augustine and enjoy Florida’s famous bluewater fishery! Captain Doug Goddard aboard the “Proper Lady” will get you to the best proven fish havens and put you on the hottest bite around!

You’ll fish aboard a 45’ Goddard – a premier fishing vessel capable of holding 8 anglers at the same time. She has a spacious back deck perfect for lining up with your buddies and casting some lines without bumping elbows. The boat was originally built in 1981 and fully rejuvenated in 2018, it’s the perfect combination of modern amenities and old-fashioned quality.

Capt. Doug will get you to check the bite for a wide range of pelagic species. There’s something for every angler in the waters off the coast of Saint Augustine! Anglers looking to flex their fishing muscles can hook up Amberjack and Cobia, some of the fiercest fighters pound-for-pound. If you’re looking to land some delicious treats you can go after Red and Mangrove Snapper, as well as Wahoo. Trophy-chasing fishers should go after Sailfish and Yellowfin Tuna – you might get a brag-worthy catch!

You’ll do high speed trolling for Wahoo and other species between February and April. You can also do bottom fishing, jigging, and drift fishing using light or heavy tackle.

Explore the waters of Florida the right way – in the blue. Book a trip aboard the Proper Lady today and cast off on an angling adventure!
