COVID-19 update: Great White Charters has Clorox Wipes and hand sanitizers on board and performs a spray bleach wash down after each charter to comply with hygiene recommendations. Keeping customers safe and catching fish are top priorities.

Great White Charters is the name to remember if you’re looking for huge hookups with a focus on keeping things fun. Captain David Ballard is a St. Augustine native who loves nothing more than sharing his local waters with anglers from all over.

Spend your day fishing either inshore or offshore for a range of species. Inshore, you will be going after local staples like Red and Black Drum, Speckled Trout, Flounder, and more. Book in for an offshore trip, and you will be heading up to 25 miles out in search of King Mackerel, Cobia, Barracuda, Seabass, and Sharks.

Whatever you’re after, Capt. David’s White Water center console is the perfect tool for the job. At 25’ long, she strikes the perfect balance between nimble inshore and stable offshore. She has a full array of Garmin electronics and all the necessary safety equipment to keep you safe and happy throughout your time onboard.

You can use a variety of techniques on your trip, depending on the species you’re after. Whether you’re bottom fishing cut baits for Seabass, slow-trolling live baits for Cobia, or throwing lures for Trout and Redfish inshore, you can always count on quality light tackle to let you bring in your fish with confidence.

Seasoned pros and complete beginners will both be warmly-welcomed onboard. You will get a trip tailored to your skills and wishes. In short, Great White Charters aims to offer nothing less than the perfect fishing trip, whatever that means to you.

Captain David Ballard is a St. Augustine, FL native. He has fished these waters since he was a boy, and has surfed and scuba dived in the area for many years. He has always loved the sea, so it seemed only the natural thing to share the experiences on the water with like-minded people. Meeting these people is his favorite part of the job. He loves passing on all he has learned over his decades-long fishing career, and hopefully creating lasting memories along the way.
