Florida Light Tackle Adventure!  Rick Daniels and nephew Andrew caught 80 plus Speckled Sea Trout in the 2-8lb range along with a dozen Redfish and 3 Cobia in a 4 hour charter with Capt.Brian Hart fishing the Tarpon Springs/Tampa backcountry!!!


Chad & Brent Cambern had their hands full while fighting this "Monster Goliath" to the surface after he gulped down the Snapper they were trying to land!!!

SW Florida Deep-Sea  bottom fishing is an exciting adventure!  An awesome catch of Grouper & Snapper on this 10hr trip with Capt. Dan Cambern!


Mahi-Mahi is what's for dinner tonight!  January & February are great months for catching dolphin off Florida's east coast from Ft Lauderdale to Key West!

Cobia are showing up along the beaches and moving around the sand bars in charlotte Harbor!  Also some nice Tripletails are offering up some heated battles on light tackle as well!!





Luke Martin from Maine samples a little  SW Florida Near Shore Wreck fishing with Capt. Dan Cambern! on a Shared Charter.  Excellent Day produced over 20 Grouper, Mangrove Snapper, Permit, Triggerfish, Sheephead and even Flounder.




 Mike Hodge & his nephew Shane went on a light tackle backcountry fishing charter with Capt. Derrick Jacobsen and caught numerous Snook, Redfish & Trout to complete a combined "Florida Slam" on the endless grass flats of Boca Grande!!




 Stephen & Midge Morris from Conway, SC spent a beautiful January day on Charlotte Harbor with Capt. Derrick Jacobsen "catching" sum 20+ Speckled Sea Trout in the 2-5lbs range and a few Redfish!!


"Nighttime Snookin" put smiles on Stephen & Midge Morris's faces when they landed their first Snook using artificial lures!  Stephen is pictured with this beautiful 28"-8.5lb Linesider with Capt. Derrick Jacobsen.


Luke Martin from Maine decides to venture out into the Gulf of Mexico a 2nd time with Capt. Dan Cambern! and yes, he slammed them Grouper.  8 Keeper size fish to be exact, and numerous shorts.  Pictured above is  27" True Black Grouper and two Gags between 32and 34 inches long.


Paul & Giane Milora take a 2nd Trip with Capt. Derrick Jacobsen in Charlotte Harbor.  Total tally was 20+ Seatrout, 7 Redfish and lots of Sheephead.  Paul's 1st trip in July produced a 16+lb Snook!



 Gag & Black Grouper mixed with a bag of Snapper is always the target when traveling offshore with Capt. Dan Cambern! Pictured above is a beautiful 60lb "True Black" Grouper that was one heck of a battle for this client!!


Jacksonville not only produces Redfish & Seatrout, but as Capt. Chris Holleman demonstrates, Largemouth & Striped Bass as well

"January" started off with large numbers of Speckled Sea Trout for Les & his son Lucas Laske and brother-in-law Paul Eberhart!!  They traveled from Illinois to fish in beautiful Charlotte Harbor with Capt. Derrick Jacobsen



Herb Richner & Nordie Shay enjoyed a good day of "catching" while they were guided by Capt. Derrick Jacobsen using artificial baits to fool these January Trout and Redfish into feeding & fighting!!! 


John Simone of New York adds a good catch of Gag Grouper to his already awesome fishing vacation.  Pictured (L to R) is John with a 16lb Gag caught on a stretch 30, an 18lb Gag, Bob and John with a pair of Gags, and the party to include Capt. Dan Cambern with a stringer of Gag Grouper.
