Top Fishing Charters in Halifax River


Looking for a Floridian angling adventure where you can test your skills against diverse inshore fish, all in one place? Set your sights on a Halifax River fishing experience, which will see you cruising unspoiled mangroves, mazes of creeks, and oyster bars for your target species. Whether you’re looking to introduce your family to fishing, or want to take home a delicious dinner, the uniqueness of this fishery means you’ll find just what you’re searching for.
 
The species you’ll be able to cast your line for in the Halifax River are a real “who’s-who” of Floridian favorites. If you’re looking for something tasty to fill your cooler, the marshy mangroves are home to the trio of Flounder, Spotted Seatrout, and Redfish. If you’re chasing these fish, chances are you’ll also come across Black Drum, Sheepshead, various Shark, and even hard-fighting Snook and Tarpon, too. 
 
If you’re really into your saltwater fishing, head straight to Ponce Inlet, where the river meets the Intracoastal Waterway. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to encounter species such as King and Spanish Mackerel, Barracuda, and even Shark species. The Bonnethead is an especially popular catch.
 
Halifax River fishing charters follow the general Florida trip formula, meaning you’ll find four, six, and eight-hour options on offer. The main difference between each trip is simply how much time you want to spend on the water!
 

Rules & Regulations

All Florida charters cover saltwater fishing licenses for their guests, and the captains dotted around the Halifax River are no different. They’ll also be able to inform you on any local changes regarding bag and size limits.

Pray for a day that was not so windy and cold. Captain Gary did an excellent job under challenging conditions. Filleting the sheepshead must have been brutal in the cold wind. I would not hesitate to go fishing with Gary again.

Be sure to take sea sickness meds before the trip. Bring layers as it can be chilly in the morning trip out to the fishing spot. Bring a cushion to sit on, the seats are not padded. Bring water and a light lunch if it's an all-day trip. Bring binoculars to view sea animals while out on the ocean. Bring gloves for holding on the the pole and fish!
