Fishing is known to be a quiet activity to rest in nature's arms, and no one should bother you. "Forgotten Coast" is a name given to the Apalachee Bay coastline in Florida that is not as popular as other places because of its lack of sandy beaches and classic recreational infrastructure.
If you want to avoid any trace of big city life and tourist crowds, just get to know this coast, especially St. Marks. Your perfect fishing adventure begins about 20 miles from Tallahassee in St. Marks, one of Florida's best offshore and inshore fishing places.
With our fishing tours in St. Marks, you are guaranteed:
While you can be a keen angler yourself or have some experienced fisherpersons around you, the professionalism of our vetted sea captains will be of great help to anyone. They have sailed the waters of the region many times, so they can lead you right to the place where you will get the best catch.
Our charter boats are great in terms of comfort and safety. They are equipped with all needed facilities and safety means, such as life vests for adults and children, professional fishing tools, and live bait for every participant.
Thanks to our captains' professionalism, you will be able to catch the fish you want. When you catch no fish in an unlikely situation, you are guaranteed a refund of 10% of your tour's price tag.
This is our priority. We provide life jackets for adults and kids and first-aid kits, too. The professionalism of our crew and the quality of vessel will ensure your safety.
Due to the complicated rocky shore of the river, offshore fishing is made simpler with experienced fishers working for our fishing charter company.
There are several reasons for St. Marks fishing to become a unique experience for you. The main thing that will give you an extraordinary fishing trip opportunity is that there are not many locals there. That means that the fish population does not decrease due to constant catching, and you will certainly catch some because fish in St. Mark are hungry for bait.
You can take a half-day trip offshore fishing or a full-time journey. The only thing you will need, except for booking a fishing charter, is a piece of great equipment. On our charters, we provide all the needed equipment, tackle and live bait, as well as rods and lines, are available for all participants. It doesn't matter if you are an amateur at fishing or an experienced fisher. We will provide you with the best things you need. The St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge could also become a part of your trip.
The bottom of St. Marks is variable. You'll find a sandy bottom on one side of the river, but the other side's bottom could be covered with rocks. It may be difficult for amateur boaters and fishers to deal with these rocks because many of them are not marked on the map. Use the service of our local professional captain because the sharp edges of these rocks could damage your boat and must be avoided. These shores, as a perk, are usually filled with spotted seatrout.
Another fact connected to the geography of this region is that there's not only the St. Marks River and Wakulla that flow nearby the Sopchoppy and Ochlockonee Rivers are also noticeable fishing spots. Whenever there's a river, you will certainly find creeks and small rivers that flow nearby. At the mouths of all the streams that fall in Apalachee Bay, you'll find the finest oyster bars. This also means that you can always find fresh fish and oysters caught by local fishers.
The most common fish species available on fishing trips in St. Marks:
While the fishing charter's prices may vary, the catch will not disappoint you, no matter which fishing packages you choose.
4 hours Inshore Fishing trip
8 hours Inshore Fishing trip
It is always good to hire a professional that knows local waters. Book a fishing charter to find your trophy fish during boat trips offshore or opt for an inshore fishing tour experience. Even though St. Marks has many great fishing charters on the river, there's still plenty of space for fishing in the bay.
For a fact, Apalachee Bay in Florida is home to monster cobia. It is a gem for a fisher, and it commonly takes a living bait to catch one. You'll need a boat to go in the bay to find this giant. Try to book an afternoon charter to increase your chances of getting one. There's always bigger fish in the Gulf of Mexico if you choose to go further into the sea. On our Saint Marks’ best fishing charters, you are guaranteed the best catch with our professional crews and a fun and relaxing holiday for your family and kids. Sometimes, during our fishing charters, you can see dolphins and sharks and explore reefs bustling with various species of fauna.
Tourism and renting charters in small towns like this support them and provide the opportunities for them to stay available to tourists. One of the ways to make your St. Marks fishing vacation memorable is flats fishing. You'll need to book our charter to Alligator Point to catch a tarpon. Beware of the alligators and mind your own safety.
Everything from life jackets for adults and kids to live bait and all-important tools and tackle are available for all participants. And don’t worry about the documents— we will take care of them, too.
Tarpon is a legendary specimen in the fishing world because it is pretty hard to find. Of course, you'll need the advice of experienced hunters and fishing guides to take you to a certain abundant place. You won't need to worry about your trip being productive for a reasonable price. Remember, you'll need a license for a tarpon. If you book our fishing boat tour, our captains will probably make it in advance and all other documents for a trouble-free fishing experience.
We scheduled our trip through fish.travel and were very impressed! We did a half day fishing trip and had a blast!!! Next time we come back there's no question who we'll be calling for our fishing adventure. Thank you Capt Peter!
Top shelf service. Went fishing the next day we booked. There is no comparison, period. We had an awesome day of fishing with captain Dan. We hooked up a bunch of redfish.
I took my son out for a half day trip a booked a fishing trip with one of Fish.Travel captains Captain Kevin. He was great from start to finish. My son caught a big snapper thanks to Captain Kevin's hard work to get us to the right fishing spot. Captain Kevin was extremely patient and communicative throughout the day. I am already planning on doing another trip with Captain Kevin and going to rebook it with fish.travel. I highly recommend him!
The locals say that the best time for fishing in St. Marks starts in May. If you can't have a vacation at this time of the year, don't be sad. Fishing charters in St. Marks is available constantly, and the amount of fish is astonishing regardless of the dates. Even when the sea fish go south, there are always many precious river species you can hunt.
The answer to this question depends mostly on the type of fish you want to catch. You can use a living or a drowning bait that lures in fish, or you may go fly fishing. The amount of different species in St. Marks waters is so vast that you will most likely become a fisher on a half-day trip using local fishing charters.
