Fishing in Amelia Island

The northernmost Sea Island is a popular angling destination, thanks to the variety of fishing options available here. Visiting anglers will easily find an Amelia Island fishing charter that suits them, whatever their goals may be. Encounter more than half a dozen different species on a single trip to the area’s rich fishing grounds. Seize the moment, and the Gulf Stream's proximity means you'll be rewarded with a variety of pelagics and bottom feeders.

If you enjoy backcountry fishing you’ll have plenty of Redfish to go after, along with Spotted Seatrout, Sheepshead, and Tarpon. Nearby reefs will put you on a variety of tasty Snapper and Grouper species. Head further offshore, and you’ll run into Kingfish, Cobia, Barracuda, Amberjack, and maybe even a Mahi Mahi or two if you’re lucky.

There’s a lot you can accomplish here, even with limited time on the water. Stay inshore and explore the hidden honey holes of the Amelia and St. Marys Rivers. These trips are perfect for kids not accustomed to the choppy open waters. Extended trips are perfect for nearshore outings and bottom fishing at the reefs. Finally, offshore charters require the most time, but the prizes always make them worth the effort.

While Amelia Island fishing charters launch from a number of places, you’ll find that most of them are based in Fernandina Beach, the lifeline of the entire island. Here, the Amelia Island Marina is the perfect place to begin your search for the perfect charter.
 

Rules & Regulations

As with elsewhere in Florida, a registered fishing charter will take care of all the fishing licenses you’ll need for a given trip. If you plan on going out on your own, however, you’ll need to buy a Florida fishing license.

Amelia Island Fishing Seasons

January

The winter weather is traditionally fickle around Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting some big Reds by jigging with Shrimp.

February

If the weather inshore is not being very cooperative, it’s always a good idea to head out to the reefs where there’s plenty of delicious Gag Grouper waiting for you.

March

Black Drum will usually be embarking on their annual migration in March, making it a great time to get some fishing done, even a mere couple hundred yards from shore.

April

This time of year, offshore anglers will usually be focusing on bottom fishing, due to the more consistent bite, but Mahi Mahi will be coming closer if you want to do some trolling.

May

If you want to fish near the island, you’ve got more than a couple of options. Flounder and Sharks will congregate on the south end, with plenty of Sheepshead near the pier.

June

It’s the start of summer, and with it, reef fishing really kicks in. You’ll be able to fish for Red Snapper as close as 5-6 miles off the coast, a real angling treat.

July

Tarpon fishing is in full swing, so don’t miss out on the chance to fight the Silver King himself. Spinning or on the fly, it’s completely up to you.

August

Tiger Sharks will do their best to make trolling the reefs difficult, but most anglers treat it as a challenge to be overcome. Plenty of Kingfish and Barracuda are also around.

September

A good place to go after Flounder this time of year is on the northeast part of the shoreline, near Fort Clinch.

October

Still a bit early to go out to the Gulf, but the Kingfish and Cobia bite should be good enough to tide you over for the time being.

November

Most inshore anglers will be focusing on the nearby jetties so as to avoid the wind. Redfish, Sharks, and Seatrout are among the main targets.

December

The Seatrout bite should be picking up near the shoreline, along with a sizeable amount of Sheepshead. Reds will be all over the place in big numbers.
