About the Captain

Hello folks, let me introduce myself, I am Jay Nichols, your fishing guide. I grew up in a family that loved fishing. I have pictures of myself at 2 & 3 yrs old with a stringer of fish, to me it was a weekly thing we did, I didn't realize how truly blessed I was until I grew older. I enjoy teaching others, and I enjoy seeing the smiles on my clients faces when they hook a big ole redfish or sow trout and feel the power of the fish as it strips drag from the reel. In this competitive market, I want to ensure you I will work harder than any other guides out there to show you the best time possible. Pick up the latest issue of the Saltwater Angler and read my latest article, I will do my best for you.
