I watched this guy work with other captains who were much younger than him and obviously have learned from him. They have a community that work with one another to help each other catch the best that they can catch. This is the guy to go for.

Be mindful of the tides and winds. The tides swing 5+ feet four times a day and that is a WHOLE LOT of water constantly moving

Let the Captain know what you’re looking to do and they do the best they can to make it happen!!! Very clean and professional crew!!

Be patient when setting your hook, some fish you just have to let them go with it a pick up and real instead of snatching

Went fishing with Backwater Fishing Adventures on July 13, 2019
The type of fishing we did was backwater with a depth from 3ft to 20ft. The fishing in the backwater was better than expected. So, yes I would recommend fishing in Jacksonville.

Make sure you have a helper. When they get to biting, it can be one after another. Always good to be able to keep up.

Choose to book captain daves and remember to put on sunscreen. No matter the top situation, the water still reflects that light.

Great opportunity to fish and enjoy just a little of what the Atlantic Ocean has to offer.
