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

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

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.

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.

Just make sure that the Captain of the boat you choose has plenty of experience, because they know where the fish are going to be that day.

Be prepared for the hot weather but fishing is red hot. Bring lots of drinks, rain gear and light clothing. August is terrific fishing and would recommend going out.

Unless you know people that fish tournaments or often, get a charter. They know all the spots. Best chance to catch fish.

Try a short trip, 4 hours the first time. There are many to chose. Inshore is great if you have some experience casting. Off shore unless you get seasick. No casting experience required and the captains give quick lessons on reeling in a caught fish. Make sure one wear proper clothing, hats, long sleeve shorts recommended and take plenty of suntan lotion. Have fun.

There is great fishing in Jax this time of year, Inshore, near shore, and offshore. Figure out what you want to catch and tell your capt to put you on fish. That simple!

Fishing is outstanding in Jacksonville! The amount of natural structure just off shore is amazing. Couple that with great inshore fishing and you have a fishery that is hard to beat. Plus several local restaurants will cook your catch for you!
