Justin is constantly on the water and is in tune with the fishery. You can rest assured that you will have the right fly or lures, ready to cast.

Let your captain teach you the basics and show you the tried-and-true methods that work best on the local waters. You will be able to hone your skills and grow as an angler, learning about proven rigging techniques, casting, retrieving, presentation of baits, and how to find fish-feeding zones while enjoying the sights and sounds of the Florida Lowcountry.
First Coast Expeditions welcomes anglers of all skill levels and expertise. Sight cast to fish in the shallow water while Capt. Justin is poling his high-end 18’ skiff in order to be as stealthy as possible.
