About Your Trip

Hop on board with Captain David and prepare for an action-packed day of fishing the flats! The clear water in the Jacksonville inshore makes it the perfect spot to do some fly and light-tackle fishing.

On this 4 to 8-hour trip, Captain David will take you close-by off the coast of Jacksonville beach where you can expect to target Black Drum, Flounder, Redfish, and Speckled Trout. Captain David has been guiding anglers in Florida for
over 20 years now, so get ready to catch some fish!

To attract these picture-worthy fish you'll be using a lightweight rod to cast exactly where the fish are swimming. Captain David is happy to demonstrate proper fly-fishing fundamentals to newcomers, or to provide experienced fly fishers with some expert tips. If you opt for light tackle, David will get you set up with the perfect bait or lure for your target species!

Captain David fishes aboard a 19' Bay Craft skiff boat, equipped with a Fishfinder, Live Bait Well, Wireless Trolling Motor, and an Ice Box to store your catches. A large casting area at the front of the boat makes it perfect for some uninterrupted casts. This vessel is sure to get you where you need to be in the Jacksonville inshores.

Captain David will provide all rods, reels, and tackle. All you need is a valid Florida fishing license as well as any food or drinks you might need. Come aboard and catch some fish!

First Time Booking with Us?

Captain Experiences is the home of over 1500 Damn Good fishing and hunting guides. Our mission is to unlock the outdoors for everyone, and we want to help you get out there through our no-hassle online booking experience and our team of outdoors experts.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR Code boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
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!
