As fish migrate north along the coast during the Spring, many Saint Augustine fishing guides like Captain Danny, love to take guest anglers sight fishing for Cobia, Tripletails and even Sharks! These species are traveling close to shore during the Spring, usually within 3 miles of the Saint Augustine coastline. The clear blue waters off the coast of Saint Augustine make sight fishing a popular option on any Springtime offshore fishing trip.
Sighting Giant Rays off the Coast of St Augustine! (And Catching Cobia!) Sight fishing is becoming more and more popular with fishing charter captains all over Florida. And the most popular species for sight fishing in Saint Augustine is Cobia! A favorite technique for finding cobia of Captain Danny of Long Line Charters is sighting Giant Rays breaching out of the water like a whale! No one knows why these huge Devil Rays and Manta Rays (as wide as 16 feet across) leap out of the water but we know Cobia love to swim in their shadows below them! We don’t want the giant Rays, we want the Cobia! (Devil Rays and Manta Rays are protected species)
Cobia put up a great fight and reeling one in is always a favorite catch on any St Augustine fishing charter! Just watching a huge ray leap way out of the water is an experience no one in your charter will forget! When you’re ready for some serious sight fishing in Saint Augustine for Cobia, Tripletails and even Sharks, book a charter with Captain Danny!
