Great day if fishing with my 13 year old son and I! Jim is great with beginners. Very patient and we caught everything we went for! Lots of snappers, Trout and a huge Redfish. Highly Recommended!

Detail and Safety Oriented Knowledgable Local Guide
Booked by phone on Saturday afternoon, on the boat by Sunday morning. Cap't. Jimbo was prompt, filled with bait-fish and ready to go as we rolled into the parking lot. His boat was very near immaculate and well-equipped. My brother and his young son were visiting from the United Kingdom, and my nephew had never experienced saltwater fishing. "Jimbo" got on us on the fish pretty quickly and proceeded to give our guests some tips on technique as they fished the edges of the nearby mangroves. Before long, snapper, snook, and sea trout were on the menu !
Jim is a personable gentleman with an eye for detail - the little details that helped our young novice land several "keepers" within an hour of leaving the dock. He continually offered advice and encouragement to our guests, moving about as needed and continually monitored the skies for approaching thunderstorms. We fished and laughed and conversed until Mother Nature let us know it was time to head back, and then the real fun began. The fact that his boat is outfitted with top-of-the-line padded non-slip surfaces was a plus, and added to the barefoot fishing experience. Our sandals were off at the dock and packed away safely for our 1/2 day on the water.
As we hurried back toward land, the "dolphin races" began as a pod of 3 or 4 dolphins seemed to be surfing in the wake of the boat, staying with us for what seemed like 8-10 minutes of sheer joy. Captain Jimbo made sure to keep the boat at a pace the dolphins and the guests enjoyed as we watched them leap over the wake... it was a few minutes of magic that created father/son memories that will (literally) last a lifetime - like something out of a movie.
Capt. Jimbo is a Master of Multi-Tasking, as well. Navigation, weather, baiting hooks, giving fishing lessons, watching for signs of fish activity, and carrying on a running conversation with his guests takes a special talent that other guides would do well to emulate. He's just, plain good - highly recommended.

My father in law and I went out with Captain Jim. We had a great time! Captain Jim had us on fish right away. As soon as the bite slowed down we were off to another location and right back on the fish. I can’t wait to come back and book another trip.

My father and I booked Jimbo for an afternoon recently. What a day! We planned to go for red fish but asked Jim if we could try to get a shark. We had a shark in the boat within 20 minutes. Jimbo knew everywhere to go and put us right on the fish. His boat is fully-equipped and impeccably clean.
Book a day with Jimbo. You won’t regret it. He is an awesome, knowledgeable Captain and you will also be supporting a retired veteran!

Fishing with Captain Jim was the highlight of our week in Cape Coral! Jim was a terrific guide -- very knowledgeable and accommodating for our group who ranged in age from 10 to 68. The boat was clean and tidy, and all of the equipment was in excellent condition. We caught sharks, several Spanish mackerel, andeven a sting ray! As a bonus, we got to go out with Jim early in the AM to round up the bait. Highly recommend!

We selected Jim as a guide after looking at his website and the fact that he is a veteran. We had a fabulous experience. We caught a lot of fish. Jim was very knowledgeable, took time to explain and show you how to do things. Very patient. He had excellent tackle and a clean boat. We have used other guides, but he was by far the best. We had fun “playing” with the dolphins on our way to a different fishing spot. They played in the wake of his boat. We enjoyed the day so much, that we booked him again for a half day fishing trip a few days later. We will definitely book him again when we come back to Florida.

We had a great time with Capt. Jim on our fishing charter. We got to town late and he generously accommodated us last-minute. He was great with our 11yo and 13yo kids, very safety conscious and knowledgeable. We got a little bit of everything during our tour - speed boating, dolphin sighting, shark catching and a run through the mangroves. It is clear Jim loves what he does and is really invested in helping families love their water experiences too. We look forward to seeing him again on a future vacation.
