Water and Boating Safety

Capt. Jim is knowledgeable about water and boating safety. His boat is state-of-the-art and in top running condition. The boat is equipped with full electronics.

Although catching fish is your prime reason for our services, we must put your safety above anything else. The following "boat rules" are mandatory.

1. During any boat speeds over 15mph, all persons must wear a securely fastened life vest (supplied of course).

2. No firearms may be brought aboard by the client.

3. Alcohol may be brought aboard by the client, but drunkenness will not be tolerated.

4. Decisions by
Capt. Jim involving any onboard safety matters or movement from an area for safety reasons are non-debatable.

Please feel free to discuss any safety concerns with Capt. Jim.

Weather and Dress...

Florida's weather conditions are unpredictable. The weather (May through September) is typically 75-95 degrees. Normal dress for most anglers under these conditions would be undershirt, pullover shirt, a light windbreaker, jeans with shorts or swimsuit underneath, and soft-soled shoes.

The weather (October through April) is not typical. Early morning temperatures may be in the 30's with afternoon temperatures 50 to 80 degrees. Your apparel should consist of layers of clothing that may be shed during the day. Dress for most anglers under these conditions would be undershirt, pullover shirt, a sweater, a medium weight jacket, jeans with shorts or a swimsuit underneath, and soft-soled shoes. Thermal clothing may be necessary at times during the winter months.

Sunscreen is essential.


Recommended airports for commercial flying are located to the north at Orlando, Florida,  The airport is about one  hours drive to Central Florida. Rental cars are available at the airport.

Are You Ready For Some Fishing?

If you plan to fish artificial baits, we prefer that you bring two rod and reel combinations that you are familiar with and like to use.

Central Florida resident sport fishermen are extremely conservation minded. Capt. Jim urges clients will not keep any trophy bass, and must release all fish caught. Or course you can take measurements for replicas to be re-created.
