Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) Fishing Charters
If you’re looking to stay more inland, our Intracoastal Waterway fishing charters are a great fit. The Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) runs along the Eastern coast of the US, from Virginia to Florida and makes for beautiful scenery and even better fishing. In our area of the ICW, you’ll find redfish, trout, flounder, sheepshead, and drum, as well as schools of bait fish and larger game fish coming in to spawn, depending on the season. While fishing, you might even see playful pods of Northeast Florida bottlenose dolphins, a common site especially just before sunrise and sunset.
