(11) Going fast!

If you are looking for the best light tackle fishing, look no further! Captain JP, with over 45 years of experience, will have you catching fish year round. Advance Charters with JP will help you make memories and learn lots while you fish!

SPend your day aboard a 24’ Carolina Skiff, which can reach speeds of 30 knots thanks to a 150 HP Yamaha engine. This beauty can easily run in 8 inches of water, perfect for backcountry fishing and finding that trophy fish.

Capt. JP specializes in bay charters going after Redfish, Sheepshead, Flounder, Trout, and so much more! This is some seriously productive fishing and makes for a fun day in sheltered waters. If you want to hook more of a challenge, Capt. JP can take you out in search of big fish like Amberjack if the weather is calm enough. There is always something to catch!

4 people can fish comfortably on these trips, with plenty of room to spare. Capt. JP has a very unique way of fishing, mixing different techniques to produce the best results. These range from the well-known chumming, to the methods Capt. JP has named running and gunning. With these techniques plus his advanced knowledge of the area, he will have you catching fish you wouldn’t normally expect in these areas!

Whether you’re on one of Capt. JP’s signature bay fishing trips or you’re heading a little further out to nearshore spots, you are in for some great hookups! Species that he has caught included everything from Mahi Mahi and Kingfish to Snapper and Grouper to Redfish and Trout. You never know what will bite next!

Capt. JP will provide all rods, reels, lures, and bait. You just need to bring snacks and polarized sunglasses. So come fish skinny water, using light tackle to catch big fish, and earn your dinner!
