Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) Fishing Charters
The Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) runs along the Eastern coast of the US, from Virginia to Florida. The salt waters in our section of the ICW are full of redfish, trout, flounder, sheepshead and drum as well as schools of bait fish and larger game fish coming in to spawn, depending on the season. The ICW is also a great place to catch a glimpse of a playful pods of Northeast Florida bottlenose dolphins, a common site especially in the early morning hours after sunrise and just before sunset.
