Captain Jay has been hunting river monsters since he was just a boy.  As a Florida native, he has grown up on Bessey Creek in Palm City, Florida which is located on the North Fork of the St. Lucie River. So, if you’re looking to test your skills and land a trophy River Monster, Wyld Adventures will get you on the fish of a lifetime and help you reach that new personal best catch you have been looking for.

At the age of 12, Captain Jay and his little brother washed cars and mowed lawns to save up enough money to get their first boat – a 13ft StarCraft John Boat with a 15hp Johnson outboard named “First Strike”. Now, they can offer you a comfortable 23ft Mako Center Console equipped with navigation gear and an ice box for catch storage that can accommodate up to 4 passengers.

Wyld Adventures specializes in the river, flats, and backcountry fishing. Captain Jay is hooked on technical sportfishing for trophy Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Jack Crevalle, and Sharks, on both Fly and Traditional fishing gear. This means you can expect a professional and action-packed approach to angling.

If the fish caught is in accordance with the latest rules and regulations, you may keep it. Wyld Adventures will clean and fillet your catch, too. Snacks and drinks are provided, Just make sure to obtain a fishing license before wetting your line.

Wyld Adventures welcomes kids, so fun family time is guaranteed. All you have to do is hit the button and book Captain Jay!

Born and raised in South Florida and have been fishing the St. Lucie River, Indian River and the Florida keys since I was 6 years old. I have a deep love and appreciation for nature, WyldLyfe Conservation and the great outdoors. My passion for fishing, boating, and exploring new places is what drives me to take people fishing and put a smile on thier face. I love to teach my clients interesting facts, information and tips about fishing, the outdoors, and the WyldLyfe that surrounds them.
