Deep Sea Fishing in Jacksonville

Passionate anglers on the lookout for their next prized catch will thoroughly enjoy Jacksonville and its productive bluewater fishery. The whole First Coast is an angler’s treasure trove, and Jax is easily one of its most popular angling destinations. If you’re not sure where to begin, the deep sea fishing charters Jacksonville, Florida boasts are at your disposal.

While a lot of finesse goes into deep sea fishing and harnessing its full potential, the first choice you need to make is what kind of fish you’d like to target. Bottom species are on the to-catch list whether you’re fishing 15 or 50 miles offshore, the only thing that differs is their size. Amberjack, Triggerfish, Grouper, and Snapper live and feed around offshore reefs, each more fun to catch than the last.

If trolling is more your game, you’re in for a treat. The King Mackerel action is on point, and then you’ve got Mahi Mahi, big Barracuda, Wahoo, and other pelagic superstars. Head to the Gulf Stream, some 60 miles from land, and you’ll be in the realm of prized catches. We’re talking Sailfish, Tuna, and Marlin.

As you might have guessed, it takes time to get to the excellent bite which deep sea fishing charters Jacksonville, Florida can take you to. Fishermen often choose 8-hour trips where they’ll spend their day chasing both pelagics and bottom dwellers, depending on the fishing conditions. Longer expeditions can last well over 10 hours, and they’re the best option for anglers looking for big Tuna, Grouper, Wahoo, and Marlin.

You’ll easily find a professional fishing guide in the marinas scattered all over the city. Morningstar Marina, Clapboard Creek Marina, and Palm Cove Marina are all hubs of seasoned captains and anglers alike. All that’s missing is you!

Understand the variety that you are likely to catch given the length of your trip. Kings and Barracuda were fun to catch but are not my favorite fish to eat!

I watched this guy work with other captains who were much younger than him and obviously have learned from him. They have a community that work with one another to help each other catch the best that they can catch. This is the guy to go for.

The type of fishing we did was backwater with a depth from 3ft to 20ft. The fishing in the backwater was better than expected. So, yes I would recommend fishing in Jacksonville.

Make sure you have a helper. When they get to biting, it can be one after another. Always good to be able to keep up.

Choose to book captain daves and remember to put on sunscreen. No matter the top situation, the water still reflects that light.

Just make sure that the Captain of the boat you choose has plenty of experience, because they know where the fish are going to be that day.

Be prepared for the hot weather but fishing is red hot. Bring lots of drinks, rain gear and light clothing. August is terrific fishing and would recommend going out.
