Background
I've been obsessed with Fishing Jacksonville's St. Johns River/Intracoastal Waterway and it's Backwater Tributaries since I started fishing my home waters with my dad around 8 years old. It's been a life-long study and I enjoy sharing my knowledge with those that share my passion for fishing.
Techniques
I'm particularly skilled at catching inshore fish with Light Tackle and Artificial Lures. I enjoy working with kids that have an interest in fishing. One of my most productive charters is a short 4 hour trip starting just before sundown and fishing on into the dark. I know a variety of techniques and can probably accommodate your preferred style of fishing if you give me a heads up on your preferences before hand.

Went fishing on Saturday, September 23, 2017

Captain Mike was very knowledgeable about the area we were fishing.  He knew his way in and out of the river systems very well.  We had a couple good bites but were unsuccessful at landing any fish.  He even allowed for more time trying to get us hooked up on fish.  After the storm the bite just wasn’t to be had.  I marked the overall experience as 4 stars not because Captain Mike did anything wrong but it seemed wrong to give 5 stars for a fishing charter without bringing anything in the boat.  They call it fishing not catching for a reason!

Thanks for the review, hope we get try again in the near future, I’m sure the Fish God’s will smile upon us next time!  It’s a rear occasion we don’t put fish in the boat.  If I made a mistake it was swinging big, targeting quality fish.  All 4 bites looked to be nice size reds.  I really wish we could have got at least one of them to the boat.

We tried many different spots both inland and in the river. Used crank lures and some jigs with live bait. Fairly windy but captain did a good job keeping us in productive spots out of the wind. We did some skinny water sight fishing and picked up a few red fish. Threw the crank baits in the grass flats and shore lines and got a good number of trout. Overall a good day on the water.
