About Your Trip

Fishing in the back-bay/inshore waters is what Southwest Florida is known for around the world. These are Captain Jack's most popular trips across all his clients, from veteran anglers to children! When fishing from Boca Grande to Estero Bay there are dozens of species that can end up on the end of your line. Some of the more common species include **Snook, Redfish, Trout, Tripletail, Tarpon, Spanish Mackeral, Sheepshead, and Various Species of Sharks.** There is nothing quite as fun as stalking fish along mangrove islands, floating across grass flats, pitching live-baits into structure or drifting baits through passes. Captain Jack mostly uses live-bait and spinning reels. With proven success, he finds this is the most effective way to put fish into the boat!

Capt. Jack pilots a beautiful, 23’ vessel that can handle rough days and get into shallow fishing holes making it perfect for plying the waters of Southwest Florida. Its T-top gives plenty of shade from Florida’s brutal sun complete with a tower and second station. An extra-wide beam and clutter-free deck give his clients plenty of room to move around, fight fish or lay back & relax. With a brand new Minn Kota trolling motor, massive bait-well, state-of-the-art GPS/SONAR, Bluetooth sound system, and more to help our clients increase their chances of landing fish as comfortably as possible.

Since everything is provided aboard Captain Jack's boat, all you need to bring are your favorite snacks and drinks and you'll be all set!

Captain Jack’s goal is to create the memory of a lifetime on every trip. Captain Jack started fishing the Florida Waters when he was a toddler, and he has inherited a decades of knowledge about Fort Myers fishing from his father and grandfather. Captain Jack is happy to cater trips to all skill levels, from rookies to hardcore anglers.

Capt. Jack pilots a beautiful 23’ Aqua Star bay boat that has no problem with choppy water or shallow fishing holes,
making it perfect for plying the waters of Southwest Florida.
It’s T-top gives plenty of shade from Florida’s brutal sun complete with a tower and second station. An extra-wide beam and clutter-free deck give his guests plenty of room to move around, fight fish and relax. With a brand new trolling motor, massive bait-well, state-of-the-art GPS/SONAR, Bluetooth sound system, and more to help guests increase their chances of landing fish.

You’ll target a bunch of different fish species, depending on the season and fishing technique you’re using. Some of the most popular catches are Mackerel, Snapper, Redfish, Snook, and Sheepshead. Captain Jack is happy to clean your catches after the trip for some tasty at home meals.

Fishing is not the only way to enjoy these waters! Captain Jack also combines fishing with eco-tours, shelling trips, and sunset cruises. Enjoy the isolated beaches of North Captiva and Cayo Costa State Park, picking up shells the majority can’t reach. Watch beautiful birds, dolphins, and manatees play in their natural habitat instead of an aquarium.

Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
