Fishing with Captain Bob

Aboard Our Saltwater Fishing Charters

Northeast Florida offers great fishing in every season, and Captain Bob's Fishing Charters has experience offering charters with bait, lures, and fly-fishing for all types of fish in the area. Depending on the time of year and your preference, our saltwater fishing charter in Jacksonville, FL, and its beaches  may have you fly-fishing inshore on the grass flats for tailing redfish and sheepshead; throwing topwater lures or bait inshore for trout, flounder, sheepshead, or redfish; fly-fishing offshore for Spanish mackerel, tarpon, or jacks; or fishing in the ocean with live bait for tarpon, cobia, sharks, redfish, trout, whiting, flounder, or drum. You may even want to try surf fishing on Jacksonville Beach, Ponte Vedra Beach, or St. Augustine, Florida, for whiting, redfish, bluefish, trout, flounder, or drum!


For your convenience, we provide all fishing (including fly-fishing) tackle, bait, lures, flies, ice, and licenses for the charter, though you are welcome to bring your own gear if you prefer. We make every effort to customize each saltwater fishing charter to meet your needs. Additionally, anglers of all skill levels and children are welcome to fish.

Items You Should Bring:

  • Food & Drink
  • Sunscreen
  • Hats
  • Camera
  • Polarized Sunglasses
  • Rubber Sole Deck Shoes

First-Class Saltwater Fishing

The Northeast Florida area offers first-class saltwater fishing year-round, and Captain Bob has many years of experience fishing in this area. Depending on the time of year and your preference, we offer you a variety of inshore and nearshore fishing options.

Inshore refers to bays and estuaries that are protected from ocean surf but still saltwater. Nearshore is simply the ocean from the shore and up to 3 nautical miles off the shore. (Offshore is anything past 3 nautical miles.)

There are all kinds of great fishing to be had on the waters of Northeast Florida. Talk to our team for charter rates and times based on where you want to fish. Likewise, we can recommend the best areas for you depending on what kind of fish you’re focusing on. Whether we fish the Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach, or Ponte Vedra area waters, we’ll ensure you have a great time on the water.
