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

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.
