Its a new year and where already having some good fishing on Drop Down Sport Fish Charters located in the beautiful historic town St. Augustine Florida. Grab some jigs and get offshore, the Cobia have been swimming around off shore the east coast of St. Augustine, Florida. The weather has been tricky, scary and dense fog with visibility of 50ft. Once out to the fishing grounds the bottom bite has been pretty wide open, vermilion Snapper and giant red snapper on every drop. When targeting Cobia I like to pull the anchor and drift fish. Bounceing around to different spots covering ground and depth of water. Jigging with a nice size spinning reel and 20-40lb class rod with jigs is a productive way to fish for Cobia. St. Augustine Florida has been a go to inlet for decades to fish offshore and hunt for the elusive salt water catfish. Always have a live bait somewhere on the boat just in case the fish are finicky, you have another option. If trolling is more your take, then wahoo fishing may be for you. The biggest wahoo of the year are caught in the winter offshore months off the coast of north east Florida. Up to 100lb fish have been caught and 50-70lb is common. High speeding seems to work pretty well for getting the bigger bite too. The new year is here, where taking reservations and dates are filling up fast so make your plans and let’s go fishing on Drop Down Sport Fish Charters in the oldest city St. Augustine Florida!!
