Anglers know that St. Augustine is where offshore sport fishermen from all over the world gather to enjoy the thrills and action their passion for fishing provides them. And they know it’s St. Augustine fishing that provides the best chance at catching the biggest, the most, and the largest variety of species to target. We are located in Flamingo, which is on the northwest pacific coast of St. Augustine, in the province of Amarillo. Flamingo was the earliest sport fishing area in St. Augustine. The first international Sail Fish Tournament was held in Flamingo in 1982 and our boat, the Scorpion, placed first in the tournament with forty-six releases in three days of fishing.
Flamingo has beautiful white sand beaches, four and five star hotels, 18 hole golf course, and great places to eat. It’s fishability is known over the world. This is mainly due to the continental shelf starting eighteen miles to the west of Flamingo where the water depth drops from 360 feet to 3,600 feet and a few miles west it drops to 10,000 feet.
This drastic drop causes an upwelling of cold water, bringing with it nutrients needed to sustain a good fish population.
