Fishing in St. Augustine is one of the oldest and greatest activities around, whether it be for necessity (as it was for many in years past) or for the shear FUN and excitement. Oh yes, and let's not forget the bragging rights for bringing in the biggest fish on your boat or winning a fishing tournament.

That's one of the many special things about living and visiting St. Augustine, the waters around us! It's mesmerizing just being out there fishing, whether you're in a little boat in the Intracoastal Waterway, out on a big sport fishing boat in the ocean, or just standing at the shoreline doing a little surf fishing. What a wonderful opportunity to soak up all that nature has given us!

There are many options for fishing in St. Augustine, but the first order of business is a Fishing License. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has all the information that you need regarding fishing licenses including who needs one, how to obtain a license and how much it's going to cost you.

The fees are very reasonable so you don't have to worry about it taking a big bite out of your FUN budget! Visit their website at for all the info.

DON'T FORGET *** Safety first when you're on the water. That's an important factor to enjoying your fishing experience. Also, when you're out there soaking up the fresh air with the Florida sunshine on your back and the glare of the water in your face be a good steward for our waterways, keep your litter on your boat! We want to be able to enjoy the natural beauty for many, many years to come!
