Went fishing with Shark Infested Charters on June 27, 2019
As this was our first time, I highly reccomend a fishing tour on a small scale like Shark Infested Tours. Our guide took the time to explain everything and took time to give one on one instructions. The boat was new, clean and our Captain was an active firefighter. I usually dont give "excellent" reviews but on this trip I will, because it was so much fun and well worth the money spent.

Bring a good attitude along with sun screen, hat, clothing that dries quickly in case of rain or ocean spray. Bring snacks of your choosing and a camera. Captain Troy will find the fish and the equipment to catch them and get ready for a wonderful day on the ocean.

The go to fishing charter is Captain Guy aboard the Mistress. He's a Veteran, and the level of professionalism, knowledge and emphasis on safety is second to none. He knows where and how to catch fish, even if nobody else is catching them.

It’s hot and the weather can be unpredictable, especially in the afternoon, so I would always recommend going in the morning. Check in with your charter captain ahead of time so you know all the details of what to bring and what not to. Early June can be a great time of year to fish and catch a lot of interesting species.

Definitely Reel Dream Charters. We had a great time with Captain Adam and Ken. They knew where to go to put you on Vermillion Snapper and grouper. We weren't disappointed. I would recommend at least the 8 hour tour

This was my first time fishing in St Augustine. We fished in mid-August on some rough waters and just caught two fish. The captain said they had been catching more fish but the day we went, it didn't sound like any of the fishing charters were doing well.

If you are bringing children who want to physically cast/use rods and reels, bring your own fishing gear with you. Otherwise they will likely sit in the boat doing nothing the whole time and not enjoy the trip. even though all equipment is provided, smaller kids may not be allowed to use it

The first time I did ANY kind of saltwater fishing was with Captain Adam, and there is no doubt in my mind that any time I return to St. Augustine.... I WILL be calling him!

Check the forecast. Don't be afraid to stay in shore if you can't get offshore. You will have a great experience, when you're willing to trust your captain and crew!

If you're looking for big fish, go offshore but inshore is a great experience to start

Find out whether or not your target fish is in season. I didn't know snapper was out of season when I when on my trip.

Even in mid-summer, a light jacket or coverup is recommended for those high speed repositioning runs. No experience or fishing gear is needed, as the CAPT. provided everything necessary.

Off shore fishing was not possible due to the weather and rough sea in March. If you want offshore you may need to wait a while for a good day.

It was fun, but definitely wear layers. That wind is cold during transit, and the sun was warm while stationary.

Listen to your Captain, if they've been fishing for very long they will certainly make your experience worth while.
