We had the fishing time of our lives. As a longtime Florida resident who goes fishing a every opportunity, it was a day that will be remembered. Justin is a great captain…really on the spot for fish and everything we needed. We will be back!

Outstanding day on the water with Captain Jim Ross. Exactly what we were looking for, skinny water, big fish, and frankly he is a pleasure to be around. Finding and Catching fish were no problem. He is patient and an excellent teacher for the techniques needed to see the fish, present the lure and then catch. He has a vast understanding of the ecosystem was awesome and made for great conversation. If you are looking for a fun and relaxing day on the water this is your guide. By the way, his boat is spectacular, clean and comfortable, and the equipment is first rate. I cannot recommend him enough.

Fantastic experience. Fished recently with Captain Jim Ross and had a trip that exceeded our expectations! Three generations fishing together and were able to knock a few fish off the bucket list. Got black drum, ladyfish, trout and tarpon to name a few. All this on a day when the wind was a solid 15-17 mph out of the South. Captain had a number of spots that he knew were holding fish and would ensure we were comfortable. Website is up front and really easy to navigate, answered all our questions and we knew what to expect! Give him a call, you will NOT be disappointed!

Worst experience with any charter ive ever had. I booked with Jim Ross's son and he wouldnt give my deposit back the day before a hurricane which was the date of my charter! Hopefully you pick another boat to fish with! Very unproffesional!

This is a totally bogus review. We did not cancel Mr. Owens fishing charter. He did. The night before his scheduled trip. He was confused about the geographical location of tropical storm "Elsa" on the day before his trip, which was over 600 miles away from our location-south of Cuba. We are located in Cocoa Beach. This storm was not expected to come within 150 miles of our fishing charter location, which didn't happen for another four (4) days from the time he cancelled his reservation with us. We got about a 1/2 inch of rain out of the tropical storm as it passed by Tampa on Thursday. On the day of Mr. Owens charter (Monday) is was flat calm with 1 foot seas. It was one of the most beautiful days we have had all year. But he wouldn't know, because he cancelled his fishing charter with us with less than 12 hours notice from the time he was supposed to be at the dock to depart. Our other charter boat had a reservation for that day and went out. Those customers caught and landed over 25 fish. They said they had one of the best days of their lives fishing with us. Mr. Owens also apparently can't read. Our companies cancellation policy is clearly stated on our rates page, reservations page, frequently ask questions page, and on his reservation conformation that he received once he booked his trip with our company. It states that the customer will forfeit their deposit if they cancel the trip within 48 hours of their departure time. It also states that our US coast guard licensed captains may cancel or adjust the trip type due to unsafe conditions. So Mr. Owens had options to not go in the ocean, but rather go in one of our three protected lagoons to fish instead. He declined these options. He also had an option to move his reservation to another day sometime in the future. He declined this option as well. So even though we tried to make his outing with us enjoyable, he would not cooperate. He cussed and "f" bombed his captain instead of listening to the captains expertise on our local weather patterns. He then said that he would do everything in his power to try to slander our company on any social media or other platform that he could find, even though he is the one who cancelled his outing with us. Go figure?

My wife and I had a great experience fishing with Captain Jim Ross on our charter out of Port Canaveral! He is extremely knowledgeable and about as friendly and courteous as possible. He explained everything and was very patient with us, showing us great techniques and had a very diplomatic manner in tolerating our inexperience. I got to fight a 100+lb tarpon for over 30 minutes, a definite “bucket list checkmark” We highly recommend Fineline Fishing Charters for a great day on the water off Port Canaveral! Jim & Vicky S.
