First Bite Fishing Charters has the best fishing trips Jacksonville, Florida has to offer! Our goal is to make sure you have an amazing time catching big fish while staying safe out on the water. 

Captain Austin Harris will be your guide as you scour the waters in search of your big trophy catch. Capt. Austin is a Jacksonville native and grew up fishing the inshore and offshore waters of the local area. With his knowledge and dedication, Capt. Austin will have no problem putting you right where the fish are at. 

While out with Capt. Austin, you will mostly be fishing near the shores of Jacksonville Beach, but you can also search the fishing grounds of Neptune Beach, Ponte Vedra Beach, Atlantic Beach, Mayport, and many other locations in Northeast Florida for fish if the biting is hot.

Your fishing journey will take place on Capt. Austin’s 22’ tournament Pathfinder bay boat, powered by a brand new 250 HP Suzuki engine. She’s also equipped with a Lowrance GPS that helps the captain find the fish and make sure everyone is safe during the trip. There’s enough room for 4 guests to fish at the same time. There’s a cooler filled with ice, so your snacks and drinks will stay cool and fresh. A livewell on deck will keep bait and all of your catches fresh over the course of your trip.

We offer 4, 6, and 8-hour inshore/offshore trips that will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, bait, and a fishing license. We practice many fishing techniques including bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, light tackle, jigging, and fly fishing. We will clean and prepare your catches after the trip for you to enjoy as a meal later. 

On our trips, we typically see Flounder, Snapper, Black Drum, Redfish, Sheepshead, Kingfish, Seabass, Spotted Seatrout, Triggerfish, and Sharks. Expect to reel in any of these fine species while you are out fishing with us.

First Bite Fishing Charters and Captain Austin Harris will make sure your trip is safe, fun, and productive. Come catch the fish of a lifetime with Captain Austin today!
