Member since October 2016

Jacksonville, United States

Background
I have been fishing since I was 8 yrs old, when I used to fish the waters of Chesapeake Bay every weekend with my father. I have been fishing St. John's River for 10 years now: I moved to Jacksonville in 2006 after serving in the Marine Corps, and got into kayak fishing, which I took up for relaxation and therapy after overcoming the battle with leukemia. I started a kayak fishing business in 2013 before graduating to boats and becoming a USCG licensed captain. I love fishing and taking others out to enjoy the water.
Techniques
I prefer light tackle spinning gear fishing, i like to use my custom made jigs with live and artificial baits while trolling to different fishing spots

Had a great trip with Captain James. Slow day of fishing all around, but he was running and gunning all over the place to make sure we caught what we came for. Great guy, great boat!

Captain JB is awesome! He supplies everything needed for the trip just had to bring my own water/snacks. He put me on the fish fast and early! He knows exactly what the fish want to bite on! I would highly recommend set da hook for anyone who wants a relaxed,fun, and professional fishing charter!
