You will meet Capt. Jacob on the boat in the morning and talk about the days plan. We then will depart from one of the local marinas and embark on our trip. Once we reach our fishing spots, we use different baits and techniques to get a nibble. Typically, our trips are successful and you can expect to go home with dinner. There is a great chance we will experience more than just fishing. We will probably see a lot of wildlife like dolphins, ospreys, manatees, turtles, and sometimes alligators! Once our journey is over, Capt. Jacob will fillet your catch and suggest some local places that do a great job of cooking your fish for lunch or dinner!
Captain Jacob Hardy with Fishardy Charters will be your host. He is licensed through the United States Coast Guard and has a strong safety endorsement on his license called a STCW. Safety is a priority. Capt. Jacob has spent his entire life in St. Augustine, FL. He has fished inshore and offshore here since he was a child. In the past 5 years he has been professionally fishing on local charter and private boats. Capt. Jacob is well respected and known for his fishing abilities and patience. Bananas are welcome on his boat.
Water & ice
Fishing rods, tackle, etc
We will either be inshore in the creeks and estuaries around St. Augustine, or we will be just offshore of the beach chasing after bigger fish! There is no other way to see St. Augustine and "old Florida" quite like we will. There are numerous cruise boats in St. Augustine but you won't get a specialized and behind the scenes view with them!
Capt Jacob is happy to accommodate anyone! Just let him know ahead of time. Bring sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses. What to wear depends! He will give you some advice
