Journey Marine

St James City
St. James City FL, United States

Journey Marine offers fishing trips and Dolphin cruises out of Saint James City, Florida. Clients are Captain Jeff’s number one priority. Whether it’s your first time on the water or you are an experienced angler – Journey Marine will accommodate your every need. The Captain has grown a reputation as a hardworking professional who will make sure your day out with him is a fun and eventful experience.

Enjoy your fishing trip with Journey Marine aboard a 20-ft Pro-line center console, which comes powered by a 140 HP Suzuki engine. It provides comfortable space for up to four anglers and is rigged with navigational electronics, such as a GPS, a VHF radio, and a fish finder. The boat is fitted with a wireless trolling motor for a quiet ride, an anchoring system to make you stay rooted to the fishing grounds, a live bait tank, and an ice-box to keep the catch fresh during the day.

Journey Marine employs a lot of fishing techniques and methods, which range from light and heavy tackle to bottom fishing, spinning, popping, and drift fishing. Your targeted species will include Spotted Seatrout, Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Grouper, Mangrove Snapper, Sheepshead, and a variety of Sharks, such as Lemon Shark, Bull Shark, and Blacktip Shark.

If you don’t feel like enjoying some fine angling, then a trip to Cabbage Key and a Beach Trip package is the best choice for you.

A fishing trip with Journey Marine comes inclusive with the licenses and all the necessary equipment to put your catch together. You will be provided with rods, reels, and tackle, as well as live bait and lures. If you decide to keep the catch, it will be cleaned and filleted for you at the end of the trip, ready for a ride home. You could have it for dinner later or just store the freezer. As well as that, you will be offered drinking water during your fishing adventure, so all you need to bring is some snacks.
