Capt James is a native Floridian and has been around the water his entire life. In his teens he started seriously fishing for large inshore saltwater species, mainly snook and tarpon. He has traveled up and down both coasts of Florida in search of the perfect fishing experience and has even adventured offshore to places like Costa Rica and the outer island chain of Belize chasing his passion of fishing.
He has settled in St Augustine where he feels the fish are unpressured compared to the other crowded waters of Florida. He enjoys getting in extremely shallow waters and sight fishing tailing red fish and top water crushing trout. With a very shallow drafting boat he is able to explore and find fish that are not seen often and are unpressured to fishing. He targets redfish, trout, flounder, and black drum. Seasonally he will catch cobia, tarpon, sharks and jacks. He specializes in flats, creeks and intracoastal for all inshore species. Captain James provides all the tackle and bait. He can also teach sight fishing and fly fishing on his charters as well as being a great instructor for any first-time anglers and kids.
