I've been obsessed with Fishing Jacksonville's St. Johns River and its backwater tributaries since I started fishing my home waters with my dad at around 8 years old. It's been a life-long study and I enjoy sharing my knowledge with those that share my passion for fishing. I know a variety of techniques and can probably accommodate your preferred style of fishing if you give me a heads up on your preferences beforehand.
