Offshore Fishing in St. Augustine

Not many cities can brag about having enormous historical significance and incredibly diverse wildlife, but St. Augustine is definitely one of them. Numerous tourists aim to explore the oldest town in the continental US, but die-hard anglers know the best way to experience it is on the water. The offshore fishing St. Augustine offers is a favorite among many of them, and for good reason!
 
The bountiful waters of the Gulf Stream are easily accessible through Saint Augustine Inlet and if you travel far enough, you can land all those deep sea species you always dreamed of, including Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Swordfish, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and more. 
 

What type of trip is right for me?

 

Quick Trips

 
Shorter, 4–6 hour trips are perfect for beginners and families with kids and will usually take you exploring the offshore reefs and wrecks. St. Augustine charter boats can also take you farther offshore in pursuit of Billfish and other A-listers if you book longer, 10–12 hour trips. 
 

Full Day Trips

 
These trips will see you exploring the offshore reefs and wrecks, as well as other deep-sea hotspots anywhere from 10–30 miles offshore. Depending on the bite and the trip length, you'll be trolling or bottom fishing for Amberjack, Barracuda, Cobia, Kingfish, Snapper, Grouper, Seabass, Sharks, and more. You can also potentially catch Mahi Mahi, Bonito, and even Sailfish if the stars align. 
 

Extended Full Day Trips

 
To catch the biggest of big, book 10 or 12-hour trips. Longer St. Augustine fishing charters can take you anywhere from 40 to 70 miles offshore in pursuit of various deep sea stars. This includes Marlin, Sailfish, Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Bonito, and more. In addition to trolling, you can also do some bottom fishing for an incredible variety of Snapper, Grouper, Triggerfish, Porgy, and many others. 
 

How to Prepare

 
No fishing licenses are needed when offshore fishing in St. Augustine with a licensed charter. Make sure to pack your lunch and drinks, sunscreen, hats, and layered clothing. Taking seasickness meds the night before the trip is always a good idea. Most of the St. Augustine fishing trips come inclusive with high-quality fishing gear and catch cleaning (tips are always appreciated). 
 
Whether you're interested in bagging some delicious bottom species or landing the biggest deep sea superstars, offshore fishing in St. Augustine will give you that, and even more. All aboard!

From our understanding fish are still out a ways in April but come closer once it warms up. Wind in April sometimes makes it hard to get out. We got lucky and had a very calm day!

Snappers cannot be taken, they are catch and release, This surprised me. I would recommend an all day trip or at least a 6 hr day so you can get out to the sportfish.

I'd recommend a shorter trip for first time charter fishing. This way you can see how people react to the motion of the water because its certainly a unique feeling that can get people motion sickness. If you do well, then a longer trip is in your future as ate bigger fish!

It was a bit cold so we didn't have luck in a few of the places. The wind on the river was really cold but once the sun came out it was much better.

Take a Red Snapper trip. Only once a year for 3 days for Atlantic Season, but we’ll worth the trip.

Stay up to date on the weather, book as early as possible in the morning, as the days can be very warm there. Also, call the captain if possible and review what you should bring with you, such as food, snacks, etc. Be clear as to what is included for the price of the charter. our captain was very good at this, so there was no misunderstanding on the matter.

Fishing was good once we got on them. we kept Spanish Mackeral but also caught blue and black drum. It was too rough to venture near shore outside the harbor so we worked the channels and the bridges

I would but you have to keep an eye on the cooler day, and would do a inter coastal , when the nigh temp don't drop too much and make the fishing harder because of the colder water, and check out reports on the web and talk with Capt. Guy Spear he would be the best in this area Capt. Guy would give you a great shot at fishing for the first time in St. Augustine

Fish in the morning, when possible. Afternoon thunderstorms are common and dangerous.
