Top Offshore Fishing Charters in Jacksonville

Offshore Fishing in Jacksonville

Also called the "Bold New City of the South" and "Where Florida Begins," Jacksonville is known for its diverse and rich waters among the lovers of the sea. It's possible to catch a variety of game species every step of the way after leaving the dock, but if you're after the biggest of big, the offshore fishing Jacksonville has on its doorstep is your answer. 
Jacksonville offshore fishing charters can take you to reefs and wrecks where you'll target the most delicious bottom fish, or you can venture farther out into the blue and target Billfish and other prestigious species. 

What type of trip is right for me?

Even though you can catch various species on 4–6 hour trips, landing all those incredible reef and pelagic species will require booking at least a full day trip. 

Full Day Trips

Eight hour trips will usually see you fishing 20–50 miles from shore. You could be bottom fishing the wrecks, reefs, and live bottom for Snapper and Grouper around 35 miles offshore. If you venture up to 50 miles out, you can expect to be slow trolling with live bait for huge Amberjack, Cobia, Kingfish, Wahoo, and even Sailfish and other Billfish if you're lucky. 

Extended Full Day (Bluewater) Trips

These trips usually last 10–12 hours and will take you out to the ledge 50–70 miles offshore. You'll be bottom fishing or trolling for Wahoo, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Triggerfish, Bonito, and even Blue Marlin and other Billfish. The distance traveled offshore is weather dependent, and it will usually take you 1.5–2 hours to reach the best deep sea fisheries. This might sound like a lot, but it will definitely pay off! 

Overnight Trips

Jacksonville offshore fishing can satisfy even the biggest sportfishing snobs. Overnight trips are perfect for die-hard anglers looking to land their next trophy. You'll be trolling for pelagics during the day, while nighttime is reserved for anchoring and fishing for delicious Snapper and Grouper. 

How to Prepare

If you're booking with a licensed charter boat, no need to worry about getting fishing licenses. They're covered by the charter, as well as all the needed fishing gear. Some charters provide food and drinks, but be sure to check before the trip. You should pack sun protection, layered clothing, and seasickness meds in case the seas get too rough. 
Jacksonville fishing charters will take care of everything else and make sure you go home with brag-worthy stories and full coolers.
