Captain Jakob Hardy
Captain Jacob Hardy was born into a fishing family in St. Augustine. He spent most of his early life fishing every day in the same area he takes his customers.

He first learned to drive his dad’s camouflage boat called the “duck boat” which has been re-done and is still used today for his flounder gigging charters.

Capt. Jacob has been professionally fishing for the past 5 years during which he graduated college at the University of North Florida. Most of his professional experience was gained fishing offshore of St. Augustine. That’s where he learned how to make sure guests are happy and how to keep people safe. He has now focused his skills and experience on guiding anglers inshore full-time.
