City in the Spotlight - St. Augustine

Airing on the Sun Sports Network: 7/20 6pm, 7/21 5pm, 7/23 5pm

This week on Florida Sportsman Television, we shine the spotlight on America's oldest city: St. Augustine. St. Augustine was founded more than 50 years before the pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock, but if they would have landed here, their thanksgiving would have been one fishy feast. During World War II, St. Augustine became a military service town, and a halt was placed on fishing excursions, but not anymore. The fishing is great year-round and the sights are second to none.

Join us this week fishing offshore for snapper, grouper and wahoo and inshore for reds, trout and flounder as we show you what makes this city an ideal destination for a family fishing vacation.
