Experience world class fishing along Northeast Florida's scenic inshore waterways and endless miles of pristine saltwater marshes. Roaming these waters are three of the state's most sought after game fish, redfish, spotted seatrout, and flounder which are available year round. Your adventure begins while fishing within the beautiful extensive network of bays, spartina islands and tidal creeks that permeate the region. Welcome to North Florida Fishing Charters. I am Captain Ron Schurr your guide. I have been fishing the waters of Jacksonville, St Augustine and Amelia Island/Fernandina for over 25 years specializing in light tackle inshore and backwater fishing.Capt. Ron will arrange to meet you at a boat ramp near your location.I have two boats to choose from, 18 ft inshore/backwater and 22 foot Bay boat for inlet, river and near shore ocean trips with bimini top.

Captain Ron took our group of 2 dads and 3 kids (8 and under) out for a fun filled day of intercostal fishing. Caught sea trout, black drum and some really nice redfish. Captain Ron is a true professional and super nice guy. He even found a pod of dolphins that hung around our boat for about 15 minutes. Kids... More

Took a trip with Capt. Ron and it beat all expectations. It was war and the tide wasn't exactly right, but we caught 2 of the biggest redfish I have ever caught in the morning. By mid day we made a move and decided to try some creeks. Capt. Ron put us on a spot where we caught 25-30 reds... More

What a day!! Captain Ron was amazing. Ron met us at the dock at 7:30am with all of the equipment, bait and boat ready... More

What a pleasant experience from booking right through to fishing on the water with Captain Ron! Timely follow up via email or text, and well organized to hit the fish right off. We are a family with minimal experience, and Ron was spot on with his instruction, assistance, and most importantly, cheerful disposition with our 9 year old. Highly recommend,... More

We booked captain Ron for a half day redfish trip. We brought cigars and expectations of a relaxing time. We started fishing about 15 minutes after getting on the boat and baited up. We immediately caught a red. Then another. After number twenty or so my hand was aching. I have never caught so many fish in one location. The... More

Capt Ron puts you on fish. We covered a large area to find the fish, he couldn't be more know knowledgable of tides and spots. We didn't crush every place we went but we had an extremely busy day on the water. Super nice guy. I would highly recommend.

Similar to a few of the other reviews I read, I use a lot of guides during the year. My experience right on the phone tells me if this will be a ‘good’ trip or a ‘bad’ trip. As soon as Capt. Ron and I got on the phone I knew it was all ‘good’. His passion and enthusiasm were... More
