5/24 - last few days.......

Had just what I should have all the time. 2 person trips! The last few days. Which was great.  No kids, just adults.

The "NEW" moon and weather this week has been a all out ball buster.

----------------------------
-the new moon is the strongest in the spring and summer,

-the full moon is the strongest in the fall and winter.
---------------------------

I had requests;

On Monday it was all "eating fish", so naturally we tried fishing for Trout.
That was a exercise in futility. And the weather was no help.  I even ran damn near to down town, worked a few old trout spots with NO BITES.  Ended the day at the jetties, and by really the days end anchored in the river over ROCKS and couldn't give away a live shrimp other than to Mangrove Snappers. Which no one could catch but me.

On Tuesday I had a request for "shark fishing". We got lucky in the 20 kt winds, there was a few shrimp boats close. Miles out was close and it was nasty / rough / over cast and "WET" as we busted over the waves chasing the shrimp boats.
With only a few strikes and catching a few small sharks. This game was really not happening. By days end we sat "over rocks"" again with live pogies out the back of the boat in hopes of a big Redfish. That never happened.  

For SPRING TIME IN JAX, this certainly hasn't been one for the record books weather wise.

REALLY TRYING TO GET A SLICK CALM DAY TO GO OFFSHORE A FEW MILES AND TRY OUT MY NEW AND EXCITING FISHING TECHNIQUE ON THE LOCAL SPADEFISH POPULATION.

NO ROD AND REEL REQUIRED!

5/18 - river cruisin'

did a short fish and then  sight see for a husband and wife yesterday.
of course the most fascinating thing for me was the new "ornament" sitting on While Shell rocks.


































yep.  that be perched upon the submerged BOULDERS!
guess the tide will float them off. Eventually.

5/13 - damn pogies....some sea flu......lost fish

SATURDAY:  STARTED OUT ON A POGIE HUNT. "they were every where, but hell if I could get them with my brand new net."  Why a new net ya say?

Well, last time out getting pogies, same deal hunted for them, but never got any till I found them in deep deep water. They came up and I threw.....I snatched the net and it was HEAVY! Then the "swivel" broke on the net and the whole shootin match sank to the bottom in 45' of water.  Thanks to Rex, a fella I know who was near me. He got his, and then lent me his net. So I went and finally got some pogies.

CHECK YOUR CAST NET SWIVELS FOR CORROSION!!!

So, today I'm out with a new net and it didn't matter. It was a pain in the butt catching them, for my purposes.

My crew was sea sick, "having the sea flu" the whole time. YES, the Ocean was rolling, but for a bass fisherman from the mid west andy roll was a huge roll.

We ended up in the river. I picked a spot that was going to serve us for a long while. I didn't want to over work myself anchoring and re-anchoring because of my eye (retina surgery last monday). So we fished the spot the whole rising tide.

My crew caught some fish, and lost the big ones. Either coming off or broke lines. YES, we were on heavy structure. But that was maybe just from big fish inexperience, some how.

Ended up with some Jacks, Mangrove snappers of course, Seabass, a stingray that ate a live pogie, and.........

a 20" sweetheart Speckled Trout.






















It was a great day weather wise. Not hot, slight breeze, no bright sun, overcast and even a slight sprinkle of rain.

But the fish?

We should have had twice the action that we did. Maybe it was the weather change.  The lost fish I think were BIG Redbass. Which would have been a game changer if they got to the boat.

5/10 - GOINGS ON....


OKAY....MY "CLEAR OUT SALE"?



LOADS OF RODS ARE GONE.    S-O-L-D

BUT STILL HAVE:

1- WRIGHT & MCGILL BAD ASS 8' FLOAT-RIG ROD OR USE AS A LONG CASTING ROD. IF I DON'T SELL THIS I'LL KEEP IT, IT'S THAT SWEET!
HAS ALL KINDS OF KILLER THINGS NOT SEEN ON YOUR AVERAGE SHIMANO ROD THATS FOR SURE.    $50

2- PHENIX "CANDY APPLE RED"' TUBULAR FIBERGLASS RODS THAT ARE LIKE CUSTOM BUILT RODS, BUT THEY AREN'T.   $55 EACH

1- YETI HOPPER 40 QT. SOFT SIDED HOPPER COOLER. ANOTHER BAD ASS ITEM, THATS IN A LEAGUE OF ITS OWN,  $250

5......YES 5, BRAND NEW SHIMANO TEKOTA 300 / LEVELWIND STAR DRAG INSHORE CONVENTIONAL CASTING REEL. WITH BOXES INFO AND ROD CLAMP.   $120 EACH

"JETTYWOLF LIVE" - ""HOW-TO'S AND TECH TIPS""

HAD A COMMENT THAT SPURRED ME TO MAKE THIS VIDEO ABOUT THE GOPRO HERO 5 FRAME ""CASE"". IN A PAST VIDEO:
https://youtu.be/GqJvHNfL5fM 

I SHOWED WHAT I THINK IS A WAY BETTER FRAME CASE I PURCHASED ON AMAZON: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01...
$9.99 EACH AND ""WORTH IT""

BUT, DOES IT DEADEN THE NOISE FROM HANDLING THE GOPRO HERO 5, WITH IT'S VERY SENSITIVE MICS?

THIS VIDEO IS YOU BE THE JUDGE.

I THINK IT'S BETTER. BUT I ALSO AT THE END OF THE VIDEO SUGGEST USING THE VOICE COMMANDS AND REMO REMOTE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. 

YES, I'M SURE THERE'S STILL SQUEAKS AND SQUEALS WHEN MOVING THE GOPRO HERO 5 AROUND IN VARIOUS MOUNTS.

AND THAT RIGHT THERE IS WHAT MANY ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT. (I'VE SEEN ALL THE VIDEO'S)

BESIDES THE O.E.M. FRAME CASE HAVING A LATCH THAT DEMANDS HERCULES FINGERS (I HAVE THEM SO IT DOESN'T MATTER TO ME).

THIS VIDEO MAKES A QUICK COMPARISON USING THE FRAME CASE FROM DEYARD VERSUS ORIGINAL GOPRO.

MY CHOISE IS THE DEYARD CASE....JUST FOR THE FACT THAT IT DOES EZ OPEN, AND HAS A OPENING TO ""OPEN"" THE DOOR FOR THE SD CARD AND USB-C PORT...."""WITHOUT"" TAKING THE HERO 5 OUT OF IT'S FRAME CASE.

PLUS, IT'S GO THAT SOFT RUBBERY TEXTURE, TOO. BETTER TACTILE'NESS (IF THATS EVEN A WORD)

PLEASE SUBSCRIBE FOR JACKSONVILLE FLORIDA FISHING ACTION AND MUCH MORE.

AND GO AHEAD A SHARE THESE TO OTHER GOPRO HERO 5 USERS LOOKING TO TWEAK THEIR GOPRO ECOSPHERE A BIT.



RETINA SURGERY:

DONE AT 11AM ON THE 8TH. OUTCOME GOOD, BUT NOW HAVE GAS BUBBLE IN MY EYE, RIGHT EYE, MY GOOD EYE........LOL!!!

SO EVER THING'S A BLUR!  THE GAS BUBBLE HOLDS DOWN THE LASER STITCHING WHERE THE SMALL TEAR IN MY RETINA WAS.
(I BELIEVE THAT MANY PEOPLE EXPERIENCE THIS AFTER HAVING CATARACT SURGERY, IF THEY ARE ACTIVE AND STRAINING ALOT. OTHER WISE WHY WOULD IT HAVE HAPPENED TO ME AND OTHERS I KNOW) 

OF COURSE I'M SUPPOSED TO SIT AND DO NOTHING BUT STARE AT THE WALLS AT HOME. BUT THAT'S NOT HOW I MAKE A LIVING.

1ST CHARTER AFTER SURGERY IS THIS SATURDAY...."I'LL GET BY."

THE GAS BUBBLE IS ""SUPPOSED TO"" GO AWAY ON ITS OWN. I WAS TOLD A WEEK. ""DOESN'T SEEM TO BE"". AND WHEN IT DOES I'LL SEE AGAIN THRU THAT EYE. WITH MANY DOCTORS APPOINTMENTS IN THE FUTURE.   ""UGH, DOUBLE UGH!""

5/6 -the big "CUBE" called Icey-tek







"a JETTYWOLF moment"

Capt Dave is sick of not knowing what to do about all the food and drinks people bring on his charter boat, the 26' center console all welded aluminum, JETTYWOLF.

Especially during the summer months when "picnic'ing" seems to be part of the daily fishing routine. Though we will never be going to "Gilligan's Island", it seems that the more people you take the more groceries you have to carry aboard the boat.

Well, he solved that! With a 200 qt. Icey-tek cooler. The cube style fit his boat the best and the Icey-tek is a no frills get the J-O-B done kind of cooler/fish box, for a boat like the JETTYWOLF.

Fish cooler - Bait cooler - Grocery cooler - Ice storage, and a additional seat. It has many jobs, fits well and "I couldn't be happier!" says Capt Dave.

Another windy weekday in the Spring Time in Jacksonville Fl, fishing aboard Capt Dave's "Jettywolf" charter boat. Light tackle Sport fishing charters.

Scott from California hooks up a "gator" Speckled Trout.

Who was more excited...CAPT DAVE, of course. Big Speckled Sea Trout, are his "thing", it's what makes his world go 'round.

People say, "Trout don't pull". Which says right there, they have never caught a BIG ONE! Rookies say that! Thought this Trout was a large redfish the way it pulled up under the boat and around he anchor line.

Big Trout fishing isn't for everyone. But Scott was a seasoned angler. Especially in Jacksonville. It takes patience and some rod skills.

Speaking of "rods"...the light action of the Ugly Stik , puts head shaking Big Trout to the boat without "pulling the hook!"

Capt Dave uses NOTHING but Ugly Stik rods.

The reel was also a Shakespeare reel..."can ya believe that?"
A Shakespeare, all graphite, star drag levelwind reel called the ATS15. For a whopping $35. It's a great little do -all inshore reel.

4/25 - lots of fishing...

LOT'S OF FISHING GOING ON.  FROM A BOAT LOAD OF 8-10 YEAR OLDS, TO JUST A DAD AND A 5 YEAR OLD.

SPRING/SUMMER IS ALREADY HERE, BECAUSE THE JETTYWOLF IS ALREADY BUSY DOING TRIPS WITH THE KIDS.

SINCE WE NEVER REALLY HAD A WINTER, ALL KINDS OF STUFF IS HAPPENING EARLY SO FAR. AND THAT MEANS GOOD AND BAD.

ANYONE THAT KNOWS ME, KNOWS I LOVE DEEP WINTER, BECAUSE IT'S GO TIME FOR TROUT FISHING. WELL, AS OF RIGHT NOW I'VE PRETTY MUCH "HUNG UP" THE TROUT TACKLE (FLOAT-RIG RODS AND REELS) AND THAT'S WEEK EARLY!


TOO MANY BAIT-STEALERS EATING OUR SHRIMP, WATER TEMPS ARE WELL INTO THE 70'S.  THE REDFISH EPIC SPRING-TIME BITE AT THE JETTIES SEEM DAMN NEAR NON- EXISTENT, THIS YEAR.

SO IN MY OPINION, "NOT HAVING A DEEP COLD WINTER" HAS EFFECTED PLENTY. BUT AT THE SAME TIME, THE OFFSHORE CROWD IS ALREADY KING MACKEREL FISHING.  SO THERE YA GO...

TODAY 4/25 IS THE FIRST DAY I HAVE USED A LIVE WELL OF POGIES. YEAH, I MAYBE A BIT LATE TO THE PARTY. BUT I'M NOT WASTING  FISHING TIME RUNNING AROUND GETTING A DOZEN OF THEM FOR MY SMALL LIVE WELL.

BUT IF THEY ARE SO EZ TO GET, I'LL SURELY GET A NET FULL. AND TODAY THEY WERE SO EZ TO GET IT WAS RIDICULOUS.

USING MY NEW SIDE SCANNING SONAR FEATURE IN MY GARMIN SOUNDER/GPS.
I COULD SEE THEM COMING DOWN THE SIDE OF THE BOAT.

AND I MEAN "DOWN THE SIDE OF THE BOAT!!!!"

SO I THREW THE CAST NET 3 TIMES IN THE STIFF WIND AND HAD ALL I NEEDED.

""I KNEW THE SIDE SCAN FEATURE OF THE GARMIN SOUNDER WOULD BE GREAT FOR FINDING BAIT."" 


WE FISHED THE POGIES RIGHT WHERE WE WERE ANCHORED UP, FOR WELL OVER A HOUR WITH NO BITES. (SOUTH JETTY)

SO I PULLED UP SHOP AND SAID GOODBYE TO THE MAYPORT JETTIES FOR THE DAY. (WHICH IN ALL REALITY, HAVE BEEN A REAL BUMMER LATELY FOR ME)

I WENT UP IN THE RIVER AND ANCHORED UP AGAIN IN THE STIFF WIND AND SCOTT AND I BOTH PINNED ON A SMALL LIVE POGIE , AGAIN.

ON SCOTT'S FIRST CAST HERE'S WHAT HE CAUGHT:




















A 7 POUND SPECKLED TROUT!


WE CONTINUED FISHING AND I HOOKED UP ON TWO AND LOST THEM. (I WAS USING A TINY LITTLE HOOK, THAT I NEVER CHANGED OUT FROM FISHING LIVE SHRIMP)  BUT EITHER WAY, I FINALLY HOOKED UP A 19-1/2 INCH TROUT.

SCOTT CAUGHT A NICE CHUNKY SEA BASS, HAD A FEW OTHER "PICK-UPS"...BUT THAT WAS IT ON THIS SPOT.

SO WE MOVED ON WITHOUT MUCH ELSE GOING ON, BEFORE SCOTT HAD TO CATCH A PLANE BACK TO CALIFORNIA.


















NOT A TON OF ACTION. 

BUT. A VIDEO IS COMING SOON OF TODAY'S CHILLY MORNING,AND STIFF WINDS.

SO STAY TUNED.

4/18 - its 100% official

ITS SPRING TIME...100% TODAY!!

THE MAYPORT JETTIES JUST ''POPPED''

- SPANISH MACKEREL HAVE ARRIVED.


- GLASS MINNOW, THREADFIN HERRING, MULLET, POGIES ARE THERE.

DID A 2 HR. KIDS TRIP TODAY WITH 2 SISTERS, AND ONE OF THEM'S 2 - DAUGHTERS. KEPT IT REAL SIMPLE AS THEY'VE NEVER BOTTOM FISHED IN THE OCEAN BEFORE. ANCHORED OUT IN THE BLUE CLAY BOTTOM OFF THE SOUTH JETTY AND QUICKLY STARTED TO LOAD THE COOLER WITH WHITING. NOT HUGE WHITING, BUT KEEPER FISH.....THEN ONE OF THE KIDS GOT SEAS SICK, SO MOM SAID, ''LETS HEAD IN.''

IF WE HAD MORE TIME, I'M SURE WE COULD HAVE GOT A BLACK DRUM OUT THERE ON THAT SPOT, BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE I'VE CAUGHT MANY BEFORE.

OR WE COULD HAVE TROLLED UP SOME SPANISH MACKEREL. I HAVE THE HARDWARE ON THE BOAT.


























-WANT A SERIOUS TECH TIP:  ''WHEN TROLLING UP SPANISH MACKEREL ON PLANERS AND SPOONS. #1 YOU CAN'T USE THOSE ''FAIRY WAND'' BUGGY WHIP SPINNING RODS. THEY WON'T WORK!!!! A MED HEAVY ACTION TRIGGER CASTING UGLY STIK WILL WORK, OR A KINGFISH ACTION STYLE ROD. AND WHEN TROLLING THE PLANER AND SPOON, MAKE SURE YOU TURN A LOT. ''WE CALL IT THE TURN AND BURN''.....AND GO PRETTY FAST, THE PLANERS WILL DIVE AT DIFFERENT DEPTHS AS YOU PILL THEM AND MAKE TURNS. A SMALL PLANERS IS ALL THATS NEEDED. AND HERE ON EBAY IS WHERE YOU CAN GET MEGA BULK SPOONS CHEAPER:  

http://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=ebasicpower&hash=item3f205afa6f%3Am%3AmmDb0llYObPaz3w9yX-yczA&item=271125772911&_osacat=36153&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR12.TRC2.A0.H0.XSPOONS.TRS0&_nkw=SPOONS&_sacat=36153















BUY BULK SHARE WITH A BUDDY.  YEARS WORTH OF INSTANT ACTION!!!!!

USED TO BE ALL THE CHARTER CAPTAINS/GUIDES WOULD BE ''TURNING AND BURNING'' ON THE SPANISH MACKEREL SCHOOLS BACK IN THE DAY. NOW WITH ALL THE ''COOL GUYS'' THAT ARE TOO GOOD FOR THIS FUN FISHING, WHERE THEY ARE SO NEW, THEY DON'T EVEN TRY SUCH A SPORT. THE FANCY BAY BOATS AND TROLLING MOTORS HAVE THEM , ''TOO GOOD'', FOR THIS KIND OF FUN. 

SO, IF YOU TROLL UP THE SPANISH MACS...''YOU'LL BE PRETTY MUCH ALONE'', BECAUSE NOT EVEN THE PUBLIC WEEKENDERS DO IT MUCH ANY LONGER.

4/16 - EASTER SUNDAY FISHING







http://www.captdaves.com - Book your charter Today!
"2 hour kids fishing trips"

5 year old Noah with his Mom & Dad went fishing on Easter morning (4/16/2017) aboard Capt Dave's ''JETTYWOLF'' charter boat.

With his Dad's help Noah caught dinner. A nice 'pup sized' Black Drum.

Noah also liked the boat ride out to the Mayport Jetties (St. Johns River Inlet) and wanted to always go.....FASTER!

At 5 years old, Capt Dave's 2 hr. kids trips was perfect for his age. The intended age for youngsters who can't do a long all day kind of charter fishing trip.

The Kids see Dolphins, Manatees, Birds, Ships, Tug boats, and many species of fish.

Parents help their kids with the fishing, as does Capt Dave.
It's really a good time for Families to get outdoors and on the water.

The 26 foot "Jettywolf", is the only commercial style charter boat in the Jacksonville area. Meaning it is extremely safe for the Kids.
Deep, high sided, flat deck, with lots of room for the kids to move around. It's NOT a Pleasure boat used for commercial duty. But rather the other way around.

Hundreds of youngsters have had their first saltwater / ocean fishing trip aboard the Jettywolf with Capt Dave.

Take the time this summer to get your youngster out learning and doing. Boys and girls both have a lot of fun, and memories.

The wind has backed off. My elbow is back 100%. And I have a great appreciation for the usefulness of my "limbs".

If you have no idea what I'm talking about. Scroll on down and acquaint yourself with my last few Vlog video's, explaining last week.

Today was a blast. It just goes to show ya, it's all about the people I have  aboard the Jettywolf.
Erin & Casey.  Visiting from South Florida aka: "LaLa Land"....Ft. Lauderdale, Fl.
They were quite smitten with ole boresville, Jax. Fl.   Compared to down yonder. I can see why.

Casey made mention a few times the difference...."especially at the boat ramps."

I'm not gonna do one of those "this was caught here, this was caught there" reports. Because later I'll be publishing a video with some fun footage.

So here's just some photos from today, that Erin took.

3/27 - NEW WHOOPASS RODS FOR YOU







"JETTYWOLF LIVE" - NOT ALL THE NEW IMPROVEMENTS TO THE 2015/16 UGLY STIK LINE UP ARE 100% BETTER IN MY OPINION. YES, I LOVE THE NEW UGLY TUFF GUIDES, I WON'T ARGUE WITH THAT. WHILE SOME MODELS GOT REALLY BETTER, MODELS THAT AREN'T AS POPULAR LIKE THE ''TIGER LITE JIGGING'' LOST THE NICE FUGI REEL SEAT AND ALUMINUM GIMBLE BUTT.

THE LATE MODEL OR EVEN THE NEWEST VERSION OF THE TIGER LITE JIGGING RODS, BY UGLY STIK ARE SOOO LIGHT WEIGHT AND SOOO READY FOR PULLING UP BIG FISH. BE IT ACTUAL JIGGING OR JUST USING AS A BOTTOM ROD.

MY VIDEO ON THE ''NEW AND IMPROVED'' CATFISH & STRIPER RODS SHOW MORE ABOUT SUPER IMPROVEMENTS, MUCH NEEDED ON THESE MODELS: https://youtu.be/tlSl7JSQ35w?list=PLK-ee3q-bFR1KbO87Xy5S_hzfU77kPrgp
