What you'll do

We'll head out to the lower Florida Keys back-country where we'll fish for a variety of species such as Tarpon, Bonefish, Permit, Shark, Barracuda, Snapper, Sea Trout and a plethora of others in the gin clear waters of the shallows and flats. There will only be the three of us so you'll have a personalized guided trip and my undivided attention whether your asking questions about our unique ecosystem and its surroundings or the techniques and equipment we'll be using to stalk and catch fish on the most fertile and pristine fishing grounds on planet Earth!

We'll typically be fishing depths of two feet to eight feet deep so the visual experience is like nowhere else in the continental United States.

Once we finish our excursion you'll be brought back to our original departure point and you can enjoy some some excellent island eats and tropical cocktails like the locals do at the famous Looe Key Tiki Bar & Grill on Ramrod Key. There's also a gift shop on property so you can pick up some souvenirs for yourself, friends or family members!

I’m a full time professional fishing guide/ charter captain and a full time resident of the lower Florida Keys. I’m a master licensed USCG captain and an accredited guide for the Lower Keys Guides Association, the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, the Bonefish Tarpon Trust and the Coastal Conservation Association Florida chapter.. I’ve been fishing the Florida Keys for over 35 years and have a vast knowledge of the waters and the fish that inhabit them.
You'll be fishing with me, this is not a charter service that books the trip and then brokers it out to any available captain they can find that day.
I guide in the flats and backcountry of the lower Florida Keys from Big Pine Key to Key West.
I own and operate a 22’ center console Panga and a 17’ Ankona technical poling skiff.

The only thing that spoiled the day was the weather. Captain Jim wants the experience to be fun and enjoyable and we can tell he delivers, weather permitting.

Jim is a fantastic captain and really worked to get us the fish. Sadly, the whole week had had crappy weather so we didn't catch anything and had to go in early. Jim refunded some of the money and we felt he had tried his best to get us the best experience and not waste our money and time. We would try to go out again with him if we come back.

Jims boat is very very clean and he's on time. He is very organized and friendly. He explained ahead of time the plan for the morning. Jim shared a lot of knowledge that we appreciated hearing about the area, environment, fishing concerns and general living in the keys. He was very quick and helpful. Jim offers "coaching" tips and is watching you fish with each cast. We enjoy the time and learned a lot. We look forward to fishing again.
