  • If you want to catch fish in the bay Jimmy is your man! Caught 92 white trout alone in less than 2 hours between 3 of us. Good eating.

  • Over a very full day, Capt. Jimmy worked hard to get us into fish. Leaving before sun up to get the tides right, we successfully fished the backwaters of Apalachicola Bay, limiting on redfish early. He then ran us out the pass to fish outside the bay islands. This was equally successful -- with gorgeous scenery on a beautiful late September day. Looking forward to the next trip.
  • If you want a river tour with a knowledgeable guide then Captain Jimmy is your man. Personality plus. My 2 sisters and I took a sunset tour and he was determined that we got the perfect sunset photo. He loves the river and it shows.
