Good morning from Drop Down Sport Fish Charters here in the beautiful city St Augustine Florida. We just had hurricane Dorian roll by us and we’re very thankful we had no real damage here in northeast Florida. Unfortunately for the Bahamas they were not so lucky. I hope they have good recovery in the years to come. As for fishing in St Augustine fl , now the storm has passed and the conditions have subsided the fishing has been red hot. The inshore fishing has been on fire , from a recent fishing report from charter fishing capt friend. The redfish bite has been really good with 15+ slots size fish in a few hours. The mullet run is in full effect with thousands of finger mullet the size of swimming pools are on the move going south. Fishing in St Augustine in September for tarpon can be as good as it gets around here. Tarpon skying the bait and showering them in to the shallows is a all day event. Drift a big size mullet on a free line or a cork rig with some floucarbon leader with a medium size circle hook in the current or the edge of light at night. The weather is still awesome here in st Augustine fl all year so give us a call on Drop Down Sport Fish Charters let’s go deepsea fishing or offshore and catch some fish and make some memories. 904-501-8572

The 4-6 hr offshore fishing charters the Kingfish fish are still chewing along with short Cobia and sharks. As for inshore fishing charters, st.

Drop Down Sport Fish Charters Fishing Report for St. Augustine Florida - 12/07/2017

 Bait: buck tail jigs

Water temp: 67 degrees 

Water depth: 65-100ft

What's biting: cobia, red snapper , vermilion snapper, Black Sea bass 

Happy holidays from Drop Down Sport Fish Charters here in the oldest city St.Augustine Florida. Fishing offshore in December is one of my favorite months to catch some fat cobias. The brown clown will shop up this month on all the wrecks and large rock piles. Usually they will be hungry ready to eat but the 50lber might require a lil more game. Heavy spin tackle is fished most, 30-50lb line with 60lb fluorocarbon leader does the job. Have multiple rods ready because free swimmers are not uncommon. Just remember when measuring cobia it’s 33” at the fork of the tail, not the total length. Other deepsea fishing this month would include red snapper fishing since noaa opened another weekend December 8-11th. Let’s go fishing on Drop Down Sport Fish Charters! Call for reservations!!!

 Bait: live shrimp

Water temp: 78 degrees

Water depth: 4- 8 ft

What's biting: redfish, trout, flounder, blackdrum 

 Inshore fishing can be hot this time of year  with plenty of action. Not many people  relize, but St. Augustine Florida is a great place for backcountry fishing. We have tons of marsh creeks and a lot of water to travel. I have a lot clients that like to target redfish. When I Fish for redfish I like to use a fish finder rig with just enough lead to hold the bottom. About a foot leader and circle hook is really all you need. Deepsea fishing and offshore have been hit or miss. The ocean has been very rough and my deep sea offshore trips have been getting cancelled. Hopes the ocean lays down so we can bust out the gulfstream soon and do some trolling for sailfish and wahoo. Let’s go fishing on Drop Down Sport Fish Charters!!!
