Captain David of Backwater Fishing Adventures warmly welcomes you to come have a fishing adventure with him. Some of the best shallow water fishing in the world can be found here, and Capt. David knows all the best places to take you to. He specializes in light tackle and fly fishing in the scenic Jacksonville Beach area of Florida, fishing for Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder and Black Drum.
His 19’ Bay Craft boat is powered by 115 HP Yamaha engine. Coupled with Capt. David’s knowledge of the area and his fishfinder, you’ll be on the fish in no time. You will fish shallow flats, creeks, and the Intercoastal waterway for a variety of species. With a large casting area at the front of the boat, it is a perfect vessel for fly fishing. The equipment needed for fly fishing is included, but experienced anglers are welcome to bring their own.
For ease of fishing, there is a poling platform and trolling motor on board. In 2002, Capt. David won the Mercury Celebrity Classic grand champion guide. Yet he still believes that teaching children is his greatest accomplishment. You will leave these trips with lasting memories and new skills at fishing, as well as plenty of fish for dinner! Capt. David will happily fillet all fish you wish to take home.
All level of anglers are welcome aboard, especially children. Capt. David understands the importance of teaching the next generation, and is happy to show them the ropes and inspire in them a love of fishing. The shorter trip is recommended for them, whereas more experienced anglers are better suited for the longer trip.
Due to the nature of river fishing, customers should contact the captain prior to the trip to finalise pickup location. The capacity of the boat is 4, based on 3 adults and 1 child fishing. It is recommended you bring along sunscreen and polarized sunglasses. Fishing license is included too, so all that left to do is book now and meet Capt. David soon!
