James Gibson will be your captain as you take in the beautiful Florida sunshine on your way to the next sandbar, intercoastal island, or fishing spot. Capt. James was born and raised on the West coast of Florida and has been fishing the Sarasota, Bradenton and Tampa Bay area for over 15 years. He specializes in inshore Snook, Redfish, Tarpon and Trout fishing. He has always had a passion for inshore fishing and loves nothing more than sharing this passion with others. No matter your age or skill level he can put a trip together to fit you. He is great with kids, dogs, and large groups. Capt. James is a fun easy-going Captain that just wants to show you a good time on the beautiful waters of this area.

Holmes Beach will be the starting point of your glorious outdoor fishing adventure with Capt. James. Depending on where the action is at, you will go on to explore the inshore waterways of Anna Maria Island, Longboat Key, Bradenton, Sarasota, St. Petersburg, Palmetto, Siesta Key, and many other fine locations on the west coast of Florida.

Your adventure will take place on the stunning 19ft Pathfinder bay boat that is perfect for inshore fishing charters in Florida. She is powered by a 115hp Yamaha four stroke engine and can carry up to 5 passengers. Capt. James will make sure the boat has all the required safety and navigational equipment so you may have peace of mind out there on the water.

We offer full and half day fishing trips that will include all the fishing gear you need for a successful fishing trip. Our Island hopping & Dolphin tour is a must-do for anyone visiting or living in Florida, you have not experienced Florida unless you’ve boated to the islands and sandbars located on the intercoastal waterways along the coast.

3 Hour Sunset Fishing
Captain James was very knowledgeable on the inshore fishing. He had us on fish right away. We caught a good variety of fish and plenty of fish. Great experience for my 15 year old son and myself. Only wish I had brought some cash to tip him for cleaning our fish. Definitely recommend this trip.

Full Day Trip
I booked a full day trip with Capt. James on a weekend. I had never fished the gulf before and was looking forward to doing some exploring and learning about the inshore fishing. James had us on all different types of spots and structure all around the area, we really did move around all day chasing prime conditions at spots he had pre-planned out. James was patient enough to help me understand some of the decisions we made and what to look for to find fish. We caught a huge variety of fish including snapper, sheepshead, snook, redfish and others. I had a blast and would recommend James to any of my friends or family and will definitely book again when I am in the area.

3 Hour Sunset Fishing
We had the best trip with Capt. James! Our goal was to catch dinner, battle some bigger fish, enjoy a boat ride, and he accomplished it all. He also catered to our skill levels (five family members ages 10-46). We also saw manatee, dolphin and a beautiful sunset. We highly recommend! Thanks for creating a fantastic family memory for us, Captain James!
