Hi!, I am Captain Jim a Licensed Captain by USCG and Florida fishing guide. Jimbo’s Charters will provide everything you need for an awesome day on the water in SW Florida and Paradise.
If you have not vacationed here before or are a regular snowbird, you probably know were in fishing paradise and that’s why you come here. You’ve probably checked out the fishing reports and looked on-line to see what is available down here.
Fish for tailing Red fish on grassy flats or skipping baits and lures up under the mangroves in search of that trophy Snook. Seeing nervous water then tossing a shrimp in the mix to catch that Monster Red or Spotted Sea trout. The waters down here in SW Florida are the finest around and truly is paradise. Some days it will turn into shark fishing and we will see who has more stamina.
I take 1-3 anglers out and fish around Matlacha Pass, Charlotte Harbor, Pine Island Sound, Cayo Costa State Park Boca Grande pass, Captiva Pass, Red fish Pass, and the Sanibel Causeway. In these areas we fish for Red fish, Snook, Mangrove Snapper, gag grouper, and Spotted Sea trout. While fishing these target species you can also catch a variety of sharks in different stages of their life. Stingrays, Puffer fish, Spanish Mackerel, Lady fish, Jack Crevalle, and Pompano just to name a few. I take anyone from a novice angler to the experienced. I prefer to use live and cut bait, but if requested I will troll so your able to use your lures or fly fish. I launch my boat in several locations depending on where I have been catching fish. My main launch is in Beautiful and old world Matlacha in the Park. Pineland Marina at the North end of Pine Island. St. James on the south end of Pine island. But I do pick up clients wherever an agreed upon location is set.
