Meet Your Captain

Welcome to Amelia Island Charter Fishing LLC. I’m Capt. Jeff Crumpton and I’ve had a love for the sport of fishing my entire life. I’ve been a charter captain in Florida since 2001. Prior to moving to Florida I did private fly fishing tours on the Cascades Gorge in Warm Springs, Va. My family and I moved to Amelia Island, in the fall of 2003 and I’ve been guiding here for 20 years. We offer light tackle and fly fishing for Redfish, Trout, Flounder, Tarpon, Cobia, Black Drum, Jacks, Sharks and Sheepshead. These are just a few of the species that we target. Capt. Crumpton also has his Federal Reef Fish Permits for Grouper, Red Snapper and other pelagic species. I love to sight fish for redfish on the flood tides and other native fish to Amelia Island. My goal is to provide a safe, fun, fishing, and learning experience. All ages and experience levels are welcome. Bring your family fishing to have fun and create memories here on Amelia Island! Call me to book your trip today at 904-753-6379. I look forward to having you out soon! Captain, Jeff Crumpton

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What will be provided during the charter? Fishing license, rods/reels, bait, tackle, and bottled water. If passengers would like to bring their own gear, that's okay, just inform the Captain prior to your charter date.

If you plan on keeping fish, please be sure to bring something to put your catch in once we return to the dock.

If you have never been offshore fishing or you do experience motion sickness, it is highly recommended to administer Dramamine/motion sickness preventative the night before your charter as well as the morning of your charter before you board the vessel.
