Located on Florida’s Amelia Island, Fernandina Beach got its name in honor of Spain’s King Ferdinand VII. This isn’t the only connection it has to nobility, though. With the amount of famous exotic fish and prized game species calling these waters home, Fernandina Beach fishing charters give you the chance to hook some serious Floridian royalty!

Inshore, the bountiful Intracoastal Waterway, winding backwaters, inlets, and jetties hold Redfish, Trout, Drum, Flounder, and Tarpon. For anglers looking to pack their cooler, local reefs offer Grouper, Sheepshead, Cobia, Kingfish, and others! Opt for a federally-licensed charter and offshore Mahi Mahi will also be within reach.

A half day trip allows for plenty of angling action and is perfect for novice anglers and groups with kids. If you extend your trip by a couple of hours, you’ll get a better chance at maxing out on your limit, making these 3/4 day trips well worth it. Finally, full day adventures are typically reserved for offshore adventures to the federal waters.
 
In Fernandina Beach, you can find charters sprinkled throughout the town. Fernandina Harbor Marina is one of the popular locations as it gives quick access to some of the area’s best inshore spots. Closer to the Saint Marys Entrance is the Dee Dee Bartels Public Boat Ramp, a popular launching point for offshore trips.
 

Rules & Regulations

Fishing permits for guest anglers are covered by all licensed saltwater fishing charters in Florida. If you plan on fishing with a professional captain, you won’t need to worry about buying a fishing license. If going alone, you’ll need a Florida fishing license before baiting your hook. You can purchase these online or at any local bait shop.

January

One of your new year’s resolutions should definitely involve heading down to Fernandina Beach in January for some first-class fishing! Sheepshead are especially rife around the reefs.

February

The Sheepshead bite only gets better, so make sure you opt for a federally-licensed charter that’ll take you out to the plentiful reefs. Inshore, Redfish are biting hard around the jetties!

March

With the Redfish bite staying strong, March is an excellent time to visit – head to the shallows and jetty waters to target this species. Black Drum are plentiful around the reefs.

April

March winds may bring April showers, but that shouldn’t stop you from fishing! Around the reefs, Cobia start to make an appearance. Want to battle feisty Wahoo? Head offshore for your angling adventure.

May

As the weather heats up, so does the fishing – huge Cobia lurk around the reefs, Tarpon are inshore, and Mahi Mahi appear offshore. After you’ve got your fill, head to the annual Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival!

June

Whether you want to battle Tarpon in the shallows, hook bull Reds, plumb the depths of the reefs for huge Kingfish, target Wahoo and Mahi Mahi offshore, you’ll have your pick of the bunch in June! 

July

Offshore fishing is particularly fun in July, with Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Tuna just waiting for you to come and hook them. The reefs are brimming with tasty Kingfish, so opting for a federally-licensed charter is a must!

August

Reef and offshore fishing stays strong. Mix up your angling action with a visit to the annual Fernandina Beach Fishing Rodeo, and see how the experts do it! Pick up some tips and tricks, then hook a trophy-sized catch.

September
If you’re looking for first-class inshore fishing, come visit now! The waters around the jetties are especially productive. Combined with mild weather, this is the perfect time for a family-friendly vacation.
 
October
Jetty fishing stays strong, with huge bull Redfish and Shark species on offer. Hardcore anglers should come visit for the chance to battle the last of the Tarpon – don’t miss your chance to hook the “Silver King!”
 
November

This is when the season slows down, but inshore fishing still provides plenty of exciting opportunities for anglers looking to take advantage of quieter waters. Target the last of the bull Redfish, as well as Black Drum.

December

If you’re looking to take home some tasty table fare, December sees Fernandina Beach’s waters brimming with Spotted Seatrout. If you want the jetties and backwaters all to yourself, this is a great time to visit!

Good fishing as long as you understand or have fishing history that weather, fresh water from rain, tides and time of day will affect the bite. It’s fishing not catching

Get with Capt. Patrick for a great time. When I told him that I was wanting to fish for reds and trout he had no problem and made no hesitation on where to go. The weather was nice. A little cool in the morning but warmed up just enough to make it comfortable.

Great day spent with captain Pat. He even saw that it was supposed to be super windy a few days before the trip and kept us updated on weather. He wanted us to have a good time but didn’t want to jeopardize our safety. Winds were better & we were able to have a full 8 hour trip. Captain Pat is super patient, helpful, & also super entertaining. Great time out on a beautiful boat!

4 of us took the 1/2 day morning slot. Benny is very knowledgeable of the area and the seasonal methods to catch fish. Very nice and polite. He encouraged us patiently while constructively providing instruction on what to do. We were fortunate to catch some larger redfish and Benny’s excitement for us was genuine. A real pro.
