Captain Jack had us catching fish the entire 4 hours we were fishing. This was the 3rd year fishing with Captain Jack and we wouldn't miss it. If you are thinking about fishing around Sarasota, this is a no brainer for anyone.

I've fished with Jack twice this year, once for trout in Jan and just last week for tarpon. If I knew half as much about fishing as Jack, my head would explode. He puts you on the fish, has lots of techniques for bringing them in and just flat enjoys what he's doing. The guy is just a real good... More

Whether your looking to catch a lot of fish or high quality fish, Captain Jack has always put us on fish. His passion for fishing and the excitement when you get a... More

We went out with Captain Jack yesterday in the morning in less than perfect conditions, and still caught some wonderful fish. I cooked the fish for my sweetheart John's birthday dinner. It was DELICIOUS. We caught trout, pompano, flounder, sheeps head, lady fish, and for real excitement a Bonnet head shark! Jack is a fun captain who loves to fish..

Prior to our trip Jack warned us that the fishing hadn't been great. Some cold weather affected bites and catches. Wasn't the case for us. He took us to one of his "spots" at the start and the first cast was a nice sized trout. Didn't stop after that. After about 4 hours, we were well into 3 or 4... More

We are a family of four with 2 kids age 20 and 17 that are sometimes a little difficult to entertain, but the fishing trip with Captain Jack was a huge hit! We were first-time anglers so Jack had his hands full with us, but he stayed calm. We had a blast! And we caught lots of fish for a... More

My 17 yr old son and I had an exceptional day on the water with Captain Jack. We booked a tarpon charter, something that neither of us had done before, and with Captain Jacks expertise and knowledge we were on big fish early and were able to land the first two we hooked up. They were by far the biggest... More

I can't begin to explain what a great experience we had with Captain Jack. He was very informative, helpful, and made it an extremely fun day on the water. We caught some killer fish, and will definitely be going back in the near future! Awesome!
