Captain
Noah D. White

Member since December 2015

St. Augustine, United States

Background
Capt. Noah grew up in the Panhandle Florida coast, where he began fishing as a kid with his dad. During his teen years he became obsessed with surfing, and he moved to St Augustine after high school to be around more consistent surf. There he found that techniques on the northern gulf coast are pretty much the same as in northeast Florida, making it a seamless transition. Capt. Noah has always had boats and has always had an arsenal of rods and tackle. It seemed natural to begin guiding. He spends almost every day on the water, sometimes to just scout. This is essential in the backcountry creeks and oyster flats in the area, and makes all the difference between one guide from another. Noah doesn't just fish the rocks and docks as many local captains do, but prefers to put in the hard work to stay on top of the fish in the backcountry. This is far more rewarding, and will leave lasting memories. He looks forward to showing you the best of the St. Augustine and the First Coast.
Techniques
St. Augustine Light tackle, fishing inshore flats and creeks using live bait and artificials produce fish almost year round. When one species starts to taper off, usually another starts to fill in. Seasonally, in late spring through summer, we chase Tarpon inshore and off our beaches, and Cobia from off the beach out to the 10 mile reefs.

I would recommend Captain Noah to anyone looking for a charter in St Augustine. He took three in-experienced fishermen and one novice for a trip and had the patience to teach and and worked very hard to find fish for us to catch even when condition’s where not ideal. Great time and feel like we had made a friend when we left.

By far one of the best parts of our trip to St. Augustine from Texas. Captain was super friendly and knowledgeable; he went above and beyond for us. Had such a blast and caught enough for everyone to have fish tacos afterwards. Will definitely call him if we’re in Florida again.

We did not catch much of anything.  It turned out to be an expensive boat ride in the heat.
Captain had no bait but rotten ribbon fish.  Rode around a lot looking for bait to castnet.

Ronald, sorry you did not enjoy your trip. Our go-to bait that time of year, menhaden, is hammered pretty hard by late July-  and disperses, but it’s worth looking for..
Additionally, when we shifted to offshore- I threw every trick I have at it to raise a Kingfish- including 4$ a piece ribbon fish. I even switched y’all to bottom fishing and recall you catching a pretty solid flounder and some undersized sea bass Gimmicky “guaranteed catch boats"in they keys consider a grunt deal satisfied. And if I also recall, one member of you party became slightly “motion distressed”, preventing us from pushing any further…
As for the expensive part: my rate or the same as ever other boat in that class AND I gave you a reduction at the end of the trip- because I felt for ya, -not thinking to head off bad reviews. There were three of you, that means HAD you paid full price- it would have cost you $125 a guys for MORE THAN 4 HOURS. The local dolphin tour is $65 per for 1-1/2 hours. Bottled water is extra. You LOOk at dolphin in the ICW!
Sorry it wasn’t a good day. Most importantly know, I strive, especially on the off days, to show hustle, multiple methods and various locations AND lots of humility, humor, and appreciation. 
Good luck.
Cpt. Noah
! Below is a picture of the awesome flounder Ronald did not want to keep. Solid 4lbs! It was yummy.

My wife and I booked a half day trip with Capt. Noah. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional and kind. The boat and gear was in excellent condition and provided a very dry ride. We did a mixture of off shore and near shore fishing. Noah did his best to keep us on the fish and would definitely book with him again.

Captain Noah, Thanks for the great trip!  We were on the fish by the time we had the second line in the water.  Several large Bonita and Kingfish on the boat early.  As the fishing slowed down, Noah had good music that we all liked and we shared stories of previous fishing trips.  Noah knows where the fish are and moved us to bait schools where the action picked back up. We thought we had a huge Amberjack close into shore but it turned out to be a 40+ pound Cobia.  Biggest Cobia I have ever seen.  Awesome.  We will be back.

Our family had a fabulous time.  Captain Mike is very knowledgeable about fishing and the St. Augustine areas good for catching fish.  The captain is friendly, helpful, and navigates his boat with safety.  I think anyone would really enjoy his fishing charter.

Basically the fish weren’t attacking the bait the day of our trip, but Capt Noah truly did his best. That’s fishing?  We had a great time and were impressed by the professionalism and effort of the Captain. He stuck with it and eventually we got into some trout so we didn’t get skunked. I’ll be booking another trip soon.

Captain Noah White was very friendly and, despite cold and wind, we had a great time and we caught some fish. Noah went above and beyond to find the fish and make sure we were having a good time. If you want a fun, relaxing fishing trip, I recommend Captain Noah White.

Great morning on the water with Captain Noah.  While the fishing was a little slow Noah was a huge help in providing tips for my son and myself when fishing.  The boat was clean and big enough to comfortably allow for three people to fish.  We will be calling Noah on our next vacation to St. Augustine.  Highly recommend.

Captain White put us on the fish.  In fact, we just finished a dinner of reds and whiting.  We are definitely going on his boat again.  One member of the group is from New Jersey and plans on coming down again just to go out with Captain White.

We fished the backwaters in the Matanzas River using live baits after a huge temperature change. While we didn’t catch any large gamefish this trip, probably because of the unfavorable weather, it was a good experience with Capt. Noah. He is very knowledgeable and capable guide. I would book again.

Thanks for the good review Russell.  The fishing has still been hit and miss this last week, rain and rollercoaster temps- but cold finally arrives this Monday and things will get consistent again- El Nino!  You and your son were great to have out on the boat.  I’ll stay in touch and let you know when the cobia arrive in the spring… truly a bucket-list experience.  thanks again Capt. Noah.
