Water temp: 80

Water depth: 65ft

What's biting: cobia, kingfish, amberjack

Still good half day action on Drop Down Sport Fish Charters here in St. Augustine Florida in this month of July. All you half dayers that want to catch some nice fish but don't want to be out there in the heat all day now is the time to get the last of the constant troll bite. The bait has been pretty  hit or miss and I like to be ready and troll early so I've been skipping the bait and just trolling artificial lures. It's been very productive and still catching a lot of kingfish, barracuda, cobia, and boneheads. Head offshore to the live bottom or structure in 65ft and troll around. Look for any signs of life. Birds, baitfish, or weed line all hold Fish. Come book your trip on Drop Down Sport Fish Charters and let's go fishing!

Drop Down Charters Fishing Report for St. Augustine - 06/03/2017

Bait: pogies 

Water temp: 77 degrees

Water depth: 45-65 ft

What's biting: Kingfish or king mackerel and cobia

Don't miss out on your half day trip on Drop Down Sport Fish Charters when your visiting St.Augustine Florida, the oldest city. The kingfish have been chewing and were catching our limits daily. The key as always is to find the bait and get some turbo livies! I have been fishing the same fishing grounds lately and with other pelagics like sailfish cobia and even the occasional mahi mahi swimming around. I like to always have a  designated jig rod ready for free swimmers that come up to the boat because you have to ready in seconds or the fish will lose interest. Preparation is everything in fishing and life. Be prepared and you will have constant better results on your total Fish count at the end of the day.

Drop Down Charters Fishing Report for St. Augustine - 05/21/2017

 Bait: live bait

Water temp: 76 degrees

Water depth: 40-65ft

What's biting: kingfish and Bonita 

Beautiful St.Augustine Florida is the next hot spot and so is half day trips on Drop Down Sport Fish Charters . The sun is shinning and we have been crushing the king mackerel in high numbers. Like I always say track down the bait and slow troll some natural bottom or stucuture. The king Fish have been averaging about 8-15 pounds and most bites around 9am. One key tip for anglers starting to live bait troll is make sure the rod has a very limber tip and the reel has a super smooth drag. It is key to land the 40 pound  smoker Mackerel!
