Sport Fishing in Amelia Island Florida


Amelia Island, Florida home of Elizabeth Pointe Lodge, is known as a fishing destination. This seaside lodge offers the perfect home away from home for the avid fisherman.

For those who love to wet their line, there are different kinds of fishing from backwater to deep sea. Depending on the time of year, tides, winds, the moon, the waters around Amelia Island offer up a wide variety of fish. From a boat or from the sandy beach that stretches in front of Elizabeth Pointe there are fish just waiting to be pulled in.
Fishing is good right now reports local fisherman.  Offshore fishermen are pulling in a wide variety of striking game fish, including king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, cobia, barracuda, amberjack, black fin tuna and, even, the occasional sailfish. Closer to shore and along the beaches catches of tarpon, cobia, red drum and sharks.
Charters are available out of Fernandina Beach’s historic seaport harbor on the Amelia River. Ask one of our Innkeepers for a recommendation. We can hook you up with a captain for inland fly fishing to offshore sport fishing. With advance notice local restaurants will cook up your catch.
It is not surprising that Amelia Island, Florida’s most northern barrier island, offers an abundance of fishing opportunities and the perfect vacation spot for those who love to fish. For those not interested in fishing there are lots of options for the family.
