Captain
Austin Harris

Member since April 2019 Jacksonville Beach, United States
Background
As a Jacksonville native, I have been raised inshore and offshore fishing. First Bite Fishing Charters is now booking inshore and nearshore trips. I have the knowledge and dedication to put you on the Fish. With the weather warming up, this is a great time to book a trip with many different species to target. Redfish, Trout, Sheepshead, Cobia, Kingfish and huge Black Drum are here right now. My passion for fishing will ensure a trip of a lifetime!
Techniques
Captain Austin Harris loves to catch redfish while inshore fishing and kingfish nearshore fishing. Every redfish is different and there are so many different ways to catch them from fly fishing to big bottom fishing reels. Depending on what you want to do we can make it happen. King fishing is live bait trolling with epic battles to get the fish to the boat. Give us a call and tell us what you want to do and I guarantee we can make it happen!
