Fishing on Amelia Island

Fishing on Amelia Island
Amelia Island offers unlimited year round fishing possibilities.  Charter boats provide inshore
fishing in the marshes and rivers around the jetties and offshore trips.  Surf fishing can be done
anywhere along the island’s 12 miles of beach.
The old bridge at the south end was slated for destruction, but it was saved specifically for
fishing.  Fort Clinch has a fishing pier. January and February are the slowest months for fishing,
June the best.  Redfish and sea trout do not migrate and are here all year.  Migratory fish are
here from April to October.
Fishing licenses are required and can be purchased online or locally at several bait and tackle shops.  Licenses can also be purchased at the County Courthouse on Centre Street.
