Backwater Fishing Adventure

For a relaxing day on the water, look no further than Backwater Fishing Adventure! Join Captain David around the waters of Jacksonville Beach and spend a few blissful hours targeting fish. You don’t need to be an experienced angler to enjoy these tours. Even though some knowledge always helps, as a novice, you can still end the day with a bucket full of fish.

You’ll be fishing on a 19’ Bay Craft that accommodates up to 3 guests. This boat is powered by a 115 HP Yamaha engine, which provides a safe and smooth ride, wherever you go. She also features a fishfinder, an icebox, and a live bait tank. And for those moments when you need to be very quiet and not scare the fish, there’s a wireless trolling motor.

All inshore species could be your catch of the day. Whether you go after Redfish, Sheepshead, Trout, Black Drum, Snook, or Flounder, you’ll have lots of fun. They make for a perfect meal and it’s hard to say which one tastes better. You’ll mostly catch them using light tackle but there’s lots of variety you can try out.

All your fishing equipment is covered, including live bait and lures. The captain also covers your fishing equipment, so you only need to pack your food, drinks, and sun protection accessories. Kids are welcome to join, so this can easily become your family’s favorite day together.

Backwater Fishing Adventure is always on the water. The question is: when are you joining them?
