Let's Plan Your Trip
St. Augustine Beach - Fishing Charters
With both salt and fresh water, there's a very long list of fish native to the region - including sport fish and very, very tasty fish. Throughout this guide book we mention fishing piers found in area town centers and state parks. However, if you'd like to make a day of it, these local fishing operators might make an extraordinary day of a favorite hobby.
RODBENDER FISHING CHARTERS
Captain Chuck Stearns has 27 years' experience fishing St. Augustine's waters and offers 3-hour to full-day charters to fish snapper, grouper, amberjack, kingfish, tuna, sailfish, barracuda, cobia and more. Except your own drinks and snacks, everything's provided and done for you, even cleaning the fish!
