Rates: • 4 Hours: $400 What You Can Expect: When you don't want to go off shore fishing, but are still looking to get out away from the shore some, inshore fishing sets the hook. Inshore fishing takes place up to a few miles off shore (in thirty meters deep of water). The water will be more calm during this trip out. When you are ready for a more relaxing time with your friends of family, this is the choice! Bringing kids? Inshore fishing is perfect. On this trip, the rods are lighter and the nets are smaller, but they both still work great for catching a large range of different fish. Inshore fishing in St. Augustine brings a more enjoyable and relaxing time for the whole crew. The ride will be not as intense, and the fish won't be as large as off shore fishing, but the excitement levels can still be just as high! During your inshore fishing trip we will be going after: Redfish, Flounder, Sea Trout, Speckled Trout, Jacks, and Bluefish. Get ready for your inshore fishing trip in St. Augustine. Your day out will be enjoyable with your friends, and our goal is to catch as many fish as possible! The best time to fish, especially in shore is directly after a slack low tide, or high tide with current moving going along. Any questions you may have concerning the time of day, type of fish to go after for the day, and anything else will be answered by Captain Alex during your phone call! In shore fishing is more consistent year round especially with the slight climate changes we have here in Florida. Less equipment is needed and we usually aim for trout, snapper, tarpons, tune, snook, and bass. Let's catch a large quantity of fish together and snap photos to show them off!

In Shore Fishing with Hard Baits - Tips and Tricks There are many ways to fish In Shore, and using hard baits is one of them. Here, we will share some useful tips that have worked for us, and something you may want to consider next time that you go out in shore fishing. • After seeking a new area and finding the depth of where the fish are located, you will want to choose the right bait you will be using. The fish will either be located along the surface, mid water column, or even on the bottom. Either way you go, you will catch fish. It all boils down to finding where the fish are, knowing what fish you are going for, and then determining what bait will be best for that area given the depth and time of day. Captain Alex can help you along the way with helping you choose the very best bait given any scenario. • The Top Water Plug is one of our favorites during the early morning because the sun has not been beating down for long yet.... making the water still cool. Not only that, you will also have the extra benefit of the fish being more active during these hours. It's really a win-win. • If you're aiming for a fish among a certain depth, and you are just not getting any bites, a simple tweak may be the answer to the problem. Try using the same bait, but next time change your retrieval rate with a simple twitch, or a couple twitches with a second break in between.
