 Bait: Live shrimp and blue crabs

Water temp: 64 degrees 

Water depth: 2-5 ft

What's biting: Redfish and trout

 It’s a beautiful day here in St.Augustine Florida. The weather is warming up and the fish are biting! This last month has been aimed towards inshore fishing due to rough seas off shore , but not to worry, this coming up month (April-May) the Mahi will be running so make sure to schedule your Gulf Stream trip with us while days are still available, as we are booking  up quickly for this up coming spring/summer season. Fish currently in season are: SPECKLED TROUT,WAHOO,SNAPPER (RED) ,MARLIN (BLUE),JACK CREVALLE AND TUNA (BLACKFIN)

Today’s trip here on the drop down was on our inshore boat which is a 181 mako flats boat. We caught Red Fish, Trout and the occasional Flounder while using live shrimp on a Jig Head. With some good current ,The bigger fish seem to be moving out of the flats and on Shell bar. Usually more often than not the Red fish are the most common in shore fish to catch especially over Trout but it’s safe to say the trout bite has been unreal for the last few weeks!

While visiting Florida’s vacation destination in the oldest city, come experience St.Augustines beautiful salt life on a premier fishing charter whether you’re new to fishing or if you’re an avid angler, we strive to not only give professional education and safety on the sport but to insure you and your family have the best fishing experience that will make you love the sport and this beautiful, historical town as much as I do.

Happy Easter to you and your family.

Bait: live shrimp

Water temp: 62 degrees

Water depth: 1-4ft

What's biting: big trout, redfish 

 Good morning here from Drop Down Sport Fish Charters here in the oldest city St. Augustine Florida. The inshore fishing has been really hot this last week with a bunch of fat trout and lots of redfish. Still using live shrimp on a pop and cork with flourocarbon leader has been producing. When fishing on inshore fishing charters I have been fishing the bottom of the tide in the deeper holes in the creeks. Offshore and deepsea fishing charters have been blown out from the wind but when it stops the wahoo should be on the chew from this last fully moon. See u next week from Drop Down Sport Fish Charters and let’s go fishing!

 Late January here in st. Augustine Florida, for Drop Down Sport Fish Charters prolly our slowest month. Cold and windy fronts make for few nice days to fish. A lot of boat maintenance and taking care of my one year old son takes most of my time. If your looking for St.Augustine fishing charters for this summer to go deep sea fishing or inshore fishing make sure you book soon because dates are filling up quickly.

 Bait: buck tail jigs

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!!!
