My Cousin and I had an awesome experience with Captain Jimmy. The weather was iffy with high winds on our only day in town to fish. Capt Jimmy knew we had a small window to fish and wanted to get us out on the water. Thanks to his knowledge of the backcountry, he was able to find an area protected from the winds that was full of fish. We managed to catch six or eight different species of fish one after another in conditions that were not most favorable. We also managed to fit in a couple hours of shark fishing, bottom fishing for other species all the while. We had a 6-8 foot bull shark hooked up on light tackle in no time once the chum went to work. It was really a great experience. The best part for me is that Captain Jimmy lets you be as hands on as you want to be. You have the feel as if you are fishing with a good buddy, rather than a charter Captain. We had such a great time and were so busy catching fish, we never stopped to eat lunch…..now that is saying something for me! I already booked my trip for July looking to hook up a few tarpon!! CAN’T WAIT!

What an incredible two days spent with Captain Jim. His knowledge and his experience lead us to the fish that we set out for the highlight for me was working an 8 foot 240 pound bull shark fought for over an hour the most incredible experience of my life with nature. I highly recommend Captain Jim. His equipment is superb and his crew was amazing.
