Top Fishing Charters in Fernandina Beach

Fishing in Fernandina Beach

Sportfishing opportunities galore on the waterways of Fernandina Beach. Inshore, the area’s endless backcountry marshes, exposed oyster beds, abundant rivers and creeks mouths provide a perfect game fish nursery for many of the First Coast’s trophy darlings. From sight fishing for tailing Reds on the flooded marsh flats to chasing the voracious Seatrout schools between the deep river channels and oyster bars, when it comes to fishing versatility, these waters come through big. Seasonal limits of Flounder, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Bluefish and Ladyfish are anything but uncommon, along with some exquisite backwater Tarpon fishing to take advantage of during the warm summer months. Upon leaving the inlet, sunken shipwrecks, hard bottoms and lime rock ledges scattered within 5 and 20 miles offshore are positively dominated by the likes of Cobia, Amberjack, Snapper, Grouper, Seabass, African Pompano and many others, with strong migrational showings of Spanish and King Mackerel, Tuna, and Bonito. For those looking to hit it big, the bluewater hotspots of the Gulf Stream offer some splendid trolling action for Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Sailfish, Marlin and more!
