Drop Down Charters Fishing Report for St. Augustine Florida - 07/16/2017

Bait: live bait 

Water temp: 80

Water depth: 65ft-100ft

What's biting: cobia, kingfish, amberjack, snapper, grouper

The fish are biting!!! Let's go fishing!!! St. Augustine Florida is the place to be. Come vacation destination here and do a fishing charter on Drop Down Sport Fish Charters. The fishing had been outstanding the last couple weeks with limits of amberjack and snapper almost every trip. There has been a thermocline in the water but if you can find live bait you can crush some fish offshore. I have been fishing waters in 85-100 ft for amberjack with a fish finder rig but with a very long leader. At least 8ft with flourocarbon leader will help you get the bite. Make sure you wait a few seconds after fish bites to make sure it swallows the bait. As I didn't follow my own rule and lost the biggest cobia I've ever seen two days ago!! The snapper have been on fire as well, using cut sardines is my favorite for big bees. You also catch a variety more fish. I have fished the last 21 days in a row and where dialed in here on Drop Down Sport Fish Charters to kill some fish. Give us a call and let's go fishing!
