Good morning from Drop Down Sport Fish Charters located in the beautiful city of Saint Augustine Florida. It’s been a very busy summer fishing season on Drop Down Charters and I’ve been slacking on the fishing report but here is one for this month. Offshore fishing charters have been pretty good. On the half day offshore fishing charters we are catching Kingfish, Cobia, Sharks, barracuda and more. We have been slow trolling live bait on the wrecks, reefs and ledges. Look for birds and bait working on the surface, the Kingfish shouldn’t be to far behind. As for the long days deep sea fishing charters, we have been mostly just bottom fishing. Mangrove Snapper are one of my favorite fish to target offshore on the Drop Down. When the current is right, I like to set a drift line with some chum and see if I can get the mangos to swim up behind the boat. Other fish we catch on the drift line are African pompano, red snapper, amberjack, Kingfish and more. If we can’t get a good drift line, we go to the bottom and meat fish. Double rigs w cut bait usually do the trick and we can catch vermillion snapper, trigger fish, pink porgies, grouper and many more. If you want to get a good fishing trip this summer, give us a call on Drop Down Sport Fish Charters in st. Augustine Florida and let’s go fishing!!
