Action Jackson Sportfishing

Action Jackson Sportfishing is located at Indian River Marina and offers to show you a memorable time in these waters.

Capt. Christopher is here to get you on some fish, and to make sure you have fun doing it. You’ll be using techniques like bottom fishing, trolling, drift fishing, jigging, kite fishing, and spinning, depending on what you’re going after. As part of their 4 to 12-hour trips, you can target species like Flounder, Wahoo, Tilefish, Seabass, Dolphin, and Black Drum, depending on the current season and weather conditions.

You’ll be fishing from a 35’ Henriques boat with enough room for up to 6 anglers at any single time. It also includes a toilet and an ice box.

All the necessary fishing gear is included in the price of your trip. All that’s up to you is to use it as best you can. No need to worry about fishing licenses, as they will be provided and handled by the charter.

You’ll be able to keep any legal species caught during the trip. The captain and or mate will be working hard to keep your hooks baited and take the fish off your hook. Tips at then end of the day are customary and greatly appreciated for a days hard work.

This is a children-friendly charter, so you’re welcome to bring your kids on for a fun fishing adventure.

I have been fishing the waters off the Delaware coast my whole life. I grew up behind the wheel of my family’s boat searching for flounder in the back bays. As I grew up I expanded my fishing horizons offshore to master the tuna, mahi, along with other fish we have in our waters. My passion is to see my groups catch the fish of their dreams, and I will work hard to achieve that dream.
