Background
My name is James Gibson. I am a USCG licensed captain and was born and raised on the west coast of Florida and have been fishing the Sarasota, Bradenton, and Tampa Bay area for over 15 years. I specialize in inshore Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, and Trout fishing. I have always had a passion for inshore fishing and love nothing more than sharing this passion with others. No matter your age or skill level I can put a trip together to fit you. I am great with kids, dogs, and large groups. I am a fun, easy-going captain who just wants to show you a good time on the beautiful waters of Sarasota, Bradenton, and Tampa Bay.
