Jacksonville is where you go to get Kingfish. The Mackerel grow massive here and make for a tasty meal. You don’t have to be a professional angler to catch them, but you could sure use help of a local guide to get the big ones.

Want to spend a relaxing day with your kids and avoid the choppy seas? Our advice is to stay inshore. There are plenty of fisheries near the coastline where you can get Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, and Sheepshead. Backwater fishing here is legendary.

If you want to make a day of it, head offshore to snatch some Sailfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna. These deep sea trips can end with an impressive catch. You don’t need to have the gear, nor the moves, as local charter captains will put you on fish in no time.
