Capt. David Borries specializes in light tackle and fly fishing in the scenic Jacksonville Beach area of Florida. This area has some of the best shallow water fishing in the world, and Capt. David is looking forward to exploring it with you.

Backwater Fishing Adventures use a 19 ft Baycraft skiff to navigate the shallow waters of the area. With a large casting area at the front of the boat, it is perfect for fly fishing, and it is spacious enough to allow up to 4 anglers on board at a time fishing with light tackle.

On a trip with Backwater Fishing Adventures you are likely to peruse the shallow flats, creeks, and the Intracoastal waterway for a variety of species including Redfish, Seatrout and Flounder.

Capt. David has been a full time guide in north east Florida for over 15 years. His passion for fishing was ignited when he learned to fish along the Mississippi Gulf Coast as a young boy. While all ages and levels of angler are welcome on board, he particularly enjoys teaching children how to fish.

We had a great experience last Saturday with Capt. David showing us the way. We caught lot’s of
Red, some trout, a black drum and some small flounder. During the outing we had 3 to 4 manatees
and dolphin swim near the boat.
Capt. David cleaned the fish and we had some for lunch at the restaurant next to the marina.
A good time was had by all !

Captain Dave was a great guide and educator. We caught our limit in reds even though we really didn’t know what we were doing before the day started. We also caught plenty of trout and flounder! Captain Dave shared some fantastic recipes with us too. I highly recommend Captain Dave if you’re interested in fishing the flats. We had a perfect day!
