9/16 - FIRST DAY OUT SINCE HURRICANE IRMA






First day after Hurricane Irma. Headed out to the Mayport Jetties first. BAIT EVERY WHERE! We opted to fish lures. The Egret Baits; Kick-A-Mullet & Vudu Mullet. For fast Jacks Crevalle action.

Headed down the St. Johns River, Jacksonville Florida. To check out how fresh the water was, with all the rain water.
IT WAS FRESH!!! Just what I ordered. The inshore species in this river are starving for some ""brackish" or "sweetwater" normally.

And that's where they were. ESPECIALLY, the Speckled Sea Trout.
My favorite species of all time.

Even caught a Fresh water Catfish. Or live shrimp wouldn't stay alive in the fresh water, so we pinned them on plain jig heads.

We found the Speckled Sea Trout and had our limit for the boat (12 bag limit of Trout, 15-20" with one over 20" per person as your trophy) we had that in a HOUR!

All on Egret Baits; Kick-A-Mullets and Vudu Mullets.

"a JETTYWOLF MOMENT'' - 9/10/2017 VLOG

VIEW MY CHANNEL IN ENTIRETY: https://www.youtube.com/c/captdavessp...

NO I'M NOT A FRESH WATER CAT FISHERMAN!!

- WE HERE IN JACKSONVILLE FLORIDA, GOT LUCKY. AND I'M COMPARING THIS STORM TO LAST OCTOBER (2016) WITH MATTHEW.

DURING MATTHEW, MY HOUSE AND GARAGE SUBSTAINED 15k IN DAMAGE, BECAUSE OF A TREE FALLING. TROPICAL STORMS, HURRICANES, EVEN VERY STRONG 'NOREASTERS', MAKE TREES COME DOWN, BECAUSE OF THE SATURATED GROUND FROM RAIN, AND VERY STRONG WINDS.

SO I WAS VERY 'SPOOKED" BECAUSE LAST YEAR'S MATTHEW WASN'T A PLEASANT EXPERIENCE. (although, I needed a new roof really bad)

MY PROBLEM CAN BE; 'NO FISHING CHARTERS BOOKED'. EVEN THOUGH, N.E, FLORIDA FAIRED VERY WELL, COMPARED TO THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE STATE.

PLEASE, DO COME SEE ME. AS OF RIGHT NOW, THE FALL SEASON IS KICKING IN BIG TIME.

AS A 21 YEAR VETERAN FISHING GUIDE. ""YEAH, THIS REALLY MATTERS TO ME"".........ALL IS WELL HERE. THE FISHING WILL REBOUND QUICKLY.

THE FALL SEASON MEANS; BULL REDFISH, SPECKLED TROUT, FLOUNDER, AND SO MUCH MORE!

9/12 - READ THIS REPORT

YES, I WAS STANDING NEXT TO MY BOAT ON AND OFF ALL NIGHT WITH A FLASH LIGHT, IN HAND POINTING UP INTO THE GIANT OAK TREE S THAT SURROUND MY SMALL NEIGHBORHOOD, THE NIGHT OF THE 10TH OF SEPTEMBER.
I WATCHED AS THE 100’ PLUS FOOT TALL OAK’S BOWED BACK AND FORTH IN THE WIND. SCARED THAT A 1000 POUND BRANCH OR THE WHOLE TREE WOULD COME CRASHING DOWN ON MY HOUSE, OR MY BOAT SHED.
IT WAS SCAREY. TO SAY THE LEAST., AND BY NOW IN JACKSONVILLE’S EASTERN SIDE, NEAR THE INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY.  THE HURRICANE WOULD ONLY BE A TROPICAL STORM.  WINDS SPEEDS WERE IN THE AREA OF 75 MPH, COMING ACROSS THE RIVER AND MARSH, IN TO THE AREA WHERE I LIVE.
I LOST POWER AT 5:30AM THAT MORNING, BECAUSE OF TREE’S FALLING ON POWERLINES. THERE WERE AT LEAST 5 LARGE TREE’S THAT EITHER SHEARED IN HALF, OR WERE UP ROOTED, AND PULLED POWER LINES DOWN AS THEY FELL.
IT’S NOW THE MORNING OF THE 12TH OF SEPTEMBER, AN D POWER WAS RESTORED LAST NIGHT. JACKSONVILLE ELECTRICAL AUTHORITY IS FANTASTIC, ALWAYS SEEMS TO BE ABLE TO RESTORE POWER IN MY AREA FAST. THEY DID THE SAME DURING HURRICANE MATTHEW A YEAR AGO IN LATE OCTOBER. ONLY HAD A LOSS OF POWER FOR NOT EVEN A FULL 24 HRS. BACK THEN.

————————-
THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS; “I’M UP AND RUNNING!”  MY BOAT WAS SAFE AND NEVER EVEN WAS HIT BY A TWIG OR A BRANCH. MY HOUSE WEATHERED THE STORM WELL. NO DAMAGE.
————————-
COMPARED TO SOUTH FLORIDA. WE GOT LUCKY WITH THIS MONSTER HURRICANE.
DO NOT FEEL LIKE YOU NEED TO AVOID FLORIDA!  AT LEAST NOT N.E. FLORIDA.
I’M READY TO FISH!!
SURE THE INSHORE WATER’S WILL BE STIRRED UP FOR A LITTLE WHILE.
BUT UNLIKE HURRICANE MATTHEW LAST OCTOBER, THAT PASSED BY JACKSONVILLE AS A CAT 2, 55 MILES OFFSHORE. THAT WAS A OCEAN BASED STORM.  IRMA WAS ON LAND, NOT WATER.
THE FALL SEASON IS READY TO KICK OFF!!
I HAVE MADE THE INVESTMENT IN A COMPLETE OXYGEN SYSTEM, THIS YEAR. IT’S HOW I WILL KEEP MY LIVE SHRIMP IN THE MOST “TIP-TOP” CONDITION.  UNLIKE, JUST RECIRCULATING LIVEWELL WATER.
MY OXYGEN SYSTEM, WILL “SUPER CHARGE” MY BAIT. AND A SPUNKY SHRIMP OR BAITFISH IS THE BEST BAIT TO USE.
BE READY FOR REDFISH - SPECKLED SEA TROUT - FLOUNDER AND MORE!
BEST OVERALL “LIGHT TACKLE CHARTERS”.....2 PERSONS.
EQUALS, BEST VERSATILITY.
THE TYPE OF FISHING I’LL BE DOING FROM HERE ON OUT TILL NEXT MAY, IS NOT A LARGE GROUP STYLE FISHING. BUT RATHER A HIGHLY INTERACTIVE, LIGHT TACKLE SPORT FISHING.
TRY OUT JACKSONVILLE FLORIDA!
WE ALL FEEL TERRIBLE FOR THE LOWER PART OF THE STATE. NO ONE WISHES ANYTHING LIKE A ” HURRICANE IRMA” ON ANYONE.

LIKE AFTER KATRINA, IN LOUISIANA. ONCE THINGS WERE SORT OF BACK TO NORMAL. THE STATE RECEIVED A HUGE AMOUNT OF NATIONAL FOCUS.
FROM TV SHOWS STARTING LIKE, SWAMP PEOPLE TO CAJUN PAWN STARS.  DOCUMENTARIES, TO FISHING SHOWS.
THERE WAS A UP RISING OF INTEREST AND FOCUS ON THE STATE OF LOUISIANA. WHICH IN ALL REALITY, HELPS THE ENTIRE STATE “RECOVER”.
I WATCHED IT HAPPEN.
NOW, FLORIDA NEEDS YOUR ATTENTION.
AND N.E. FLORIDA, CAN BE THAT AREA.
I’M READY TO GET BACK AT IT.

8/31 - GUESS WHATS ON MY MIND?




http://www.captdaves.com - (904) 642-9546 Book your charter Today!

"JETTYWOLF LIVE"

- SHORT VIDEO ABOUT MY PASSION. BIG TROUT. AND I'M ALWAYS LOOKING FOR ANGLERS WHO WANT TO PURSUE BIG TROUT....."SPECKLED SEA TROUT THAT IS."

JACKSONVILLE FLORIDA TROUT SEASON REALLY RUNS FROM LATE OCTOBER THRU APRIL AND EARLY MAY. OF COURSE THESE BEAUTIFUL OF FISH THAT SWIM AREA WATERS ARE AVAILABLE, BUT MORE DIFFICULT TO CATCH IN THE DEEP HOT SUMMER MONTHS.

FISHING FOR BIG TROUT, ISN'T A FAMILY OR GROUP AFFAIR. ONE OR TWO ANGLERS, ONLY. LIKE BASS FISHING, THERE'S TOO MUCH GOING ON FOR A BOAT LOAD OF PEOPLE. PLUS, I'VE NEVER SEEN 5 PEOPLE ON A BASS BOAT FISHING.....SAME DEAL HERE.

SERIOUS TROUT HUNTERS OR WANT TO BE TROUT HUNTERS
NEED APPLY....hahahahahaha

this is just one of my many Trout fishing tribute video's

8/27 - MARPAC QWICK VIEW FUEL WATER SEPARATOR:






http://www.captdaves.com - 904-642-9546 Book your charter Today!

"JETTYWOLF LIVE"
CAPT DAVE ENDURES THE FLORIDA HEAT AND CHANGES OUT HIS BOATS WATER/FUEL SEPARATOR FILTER, FROM A OLD RACOR SYSTEM TO THE NEW MARPAC SYSTEM WITH CHEAPER FILTERS, AND A SEE THRU BOWL, WITH DRAIN.

ETHANOL IS A HUGE PROBLEM, ABSORBING WATER. KEEPING A EYE ON YOUR OUTBOARD MOTOR FUEL IS NOW A CONSTANT JOB.

THE MARPAC FILTER SYSTEM IS SUPPOSED TO MAKE THAT A WHOLE LOT BETTER. BUT THERE'S A FEW CONFUSING ISSUES, THAT GO ALONG WITH "HOW TO PURCHASE" THIS MARPAC FILTER SYSTEM, I THINK.

check out the end cards after video for other video's on this same topic.

8/26 - I fought the weather and the weather won....

Really tried to duplicate yesterday. But boy that was tough. Not that the forecast ever came true...Winds and rain. But yep, the weather change won.

Tried the Jetties, and the Jetties won.

Yeah we caught fish. Just not enough in my book.

Here's the "stud" of the day. Lost others.
"Super Stud", pegging my 30 pound scale!





We had fun, none the less. Turned out the 4th crew member punked out to sleep in.

-Jacks
-Ladyfish
-Mangroves
-Cats
-Giant Rays
-Whiting

were just a few species.

I can tell a tough day by how many times I drop and pull anchor. Today it was a lot.!

8/25 - BULL REDFISH TO MUTTON SNAPPER

TODAY'S CHARTER WAS PRETTY DANG GOOD, I THOUGHT.
FINALLY, WAS BACK TO JUST 2 PEOPLE. (best inshore trip overall, in my mind. and my mind knows all)

STARTED OFF AT THE N. JETTY ON THE FALLING TIDE.....UGH!
WHY I WENT THERE I DON'T KNOW. WANTED TO LOOK AT THE OCEAN I GUESS.

DROPPED DOWN SOME CUT POGIES AND INSTANTLY GOT A BITE.

~~~~NURSE SHARK~~~~
THE BIG UGLY "KITTY KAT"" OF THE SHARK FAMILY. MAJOR DEAD WEIGHT.

NOTHING ELSE DOIN' SO WE BEAT FEET UP INTO THE RIVER, AND GOT SOME REDBASS, BOTTOM FISHING.

1-BREAK OFF.
1-CAME UN-HOOKED RIGHT AT THE BACK OF THE BOAT
1 - LITTLE GUY A 10 POUNDER
1- 35 POUNDER (THAT'S THE WEIGHT I GIVE THEM WHEN THEY SMASH THE BOGA-GRIP ALL THE WAY.)













































































AS USUAL, THE CURRENT ON THE RISING TIDE GOT HEINOUS, SO WE WENT BACK TO THE JETTIES, FISHING THE RISING TIDE.
WE HAD, MANGROVE SNAPPERS, JACKS, BLACK DRUM, SEABASS (OF COURSE) AND A MUTTON SNAPPER.

REALLY? A MUTTON SNAPPER? YEP, I'VE HAD SEVERAL SO FAR THIS SUMMER. THEY HANG OUT WITH THE MANGROVES. AND THERE'S MANY TIMES LITTLE LANE SNAPPERS IN WITH THEM.

JUST THINK. WHEN THEY DREDGE THE RIVER DEEPER AND BANG INTO CHINA ON THE OTHER SIDE, WE'LL REALLY GET EVEN MORE SALTWATER INFLUX OF SPECIES, AS WELL AS CURRENT THAT'LL BE UN-FISHABLE........"OH JOY!!!"  (THERE'S ENTIRE STRETCHES OF THE RIVER NOW THAT THE CURRENT MAKES IT UN-FISHABLE, IN MY OPINION.)



















WE HAD 3 BACK DRUM TO THE BOAT. 2 NICE KEEPERS AND A SMALL THROW-BACK.

WE MAY HAVE HAD MORE. BUT THE SHARKS AT LEAST 5-6 TIMES ATE WHATEVER YOU HOOKED UP THAT WAS A NICE FISH.

YA' GO FROM FIGHTING A NICE FISH TO FEELING A BIG BUMP, AND THEN OFF THEY GO.......DRAG SCREAMING UNDER THE BOAT.
LOTS OF LOST TACKLE, FOR SURE AND FISH.









































SATURDAY:  BACK TO A GROUP OF 4, IN THE WIND?
NORTH-NORTHEAST 15-20 KTS.

Tuesday, August 22, 2017

8/20 - More Jr. Anglers.

More Jr. Anglers......."killin em" at the big rocks.























the Blacktip hook up's on pieces of dead shrimp is what was killin' me. 
Can ya believe they are that HUNGRY??"


last Saturday turned 1000 hrs on the Suzuki.












Not bad for three years old. Get out of that summer trolling game and save a Outboard, is how I see it. And No Long Boat Rides, needed.
"Keeps me happy", the Suzuki 250 has been good to me so far. 

Thursday, August 17, 2017

8/17 - After Sharkin, but before getting drenched!

Yep, I went and tried the Sharkin, behind one lonely shrimp boat dragging the beach.

The Sharkin behind the shrimp boats has been dismal to say the least...."because there's no shrimp boats!"

So after easily getting all the Pogies we wanted, we travelled a bit south down the beach and came upon "The Brat", dragging in just 15' of water.

We got like 6 hook ups from some small Sharp-noses. And had the rest pull off the hooks.

Not great action.

So we went out to 50' of water in the S.E. Hole (Old Seaturtle Inn) straight out to 50'.

Started our own chum line and ZILCHO.

So we ran back in the river and caught several Redbass, largest was something like maybe 18 pounds.















































































Lightning struck "super close", so we beat feet the hell outa there.
(ole little Jetties) and not seconds after returning to the dock, here came huge winds and driving rain, that even my Mega-Top couldn't shield us from.

Side ways rain!


Don't ask about "Shark Fishing", cause I'm not wasting the time. Without the Shrimp boat fleet out there. And the Jetty Sharks...well they barely catchable by anyone.

8/9 - the RUSH of 2 hr Kids Trips...before school starts

Plus I have a Kids Trip tomorrow as well.  Then, all will come to a complete halt as far as taking the kids fishing, as soon as school starts.

But the start of school seems to effect adults too. Even swinging single people!
Why is that?
I have no clue.

But either way I'll be back into adult trips starting Sunday with a full boat of guys from Indiana I think. A bunch of sweetwater fisherman....hahaha

They probably think we're going out for Marlin, Dolphin and Halibut.

Either way here's some shots of the kids I had aboard the last few days.

Again: Its always difficult to get Kids and fish in a really good photo. Many catch fish and then are scared to death of them. I wondered about that, so I asked my dad, "was I ever scared of a fish, as a kid?" He said, I guess not because I don't ever remember you being afraid of the water or fish.

SEE? That's why I'm your fearless fishing Guide!

 


ya can't tell but this was a HUGE Whiting about 16-17 inches!  Damn, wish we could of had a whole box of those!



Then, here's what I thought was a photo. Instead I had the video going instead.
These two kids were a hoot. Soooo, into fishing it was unbelievable. For their ages, I don't see that, much.

"JOIN ME ABOARD THE JETTYWOLF"

COUNT MY PAST BOAT THE ""FOR REELIN II"", I HAVE FISHED IN THE SUN FOR 17 YEARS OUT OF MY 21 YEARS AS A FULL-TIME FISHING GUIDE IN JACKSONVILLE FLORIDA.

BUT WITH A MODIFICATION.....A WELDED ALUMINUM TOP. I HAVE A ALL NEW BOAT NOW.

I DID THIS FOR YOU AS WELL AS FOR ME. I WANT YOU MY CLIENT TO BE COMFORTABLE. BUT AT THE SAME TIME, DIDN'T WANT TO LOOSE THE MASSIVE ""FISH-ABILITY"" OF MY 26' ALLOY PLATE CENTER CONSOLE BOAT, THAT IS SO VERSATILE.

THE JETTYWOLF FLOATS IN 2 FEET OF WATER WITH 5 OF US ON IT. AND CAN TACKLE THE ROUGHEST WATER AT THE ST. JOHNS RIVER INLET, BE THE MOST ECONOMICAL BOAT OUT THERE, AND OF COURSE IT'S THE TOUGH & SAFE FOR ALL AGES. KID FRIENDLY AND CHARTERS ARE VERY FAMILY FRIENDLY. 

TAKE NOTICE, THE NEXT TIME YOU ARE FISHING YOUR LOCAL COASTAL WATERS. NO COMMERCIAL BOATS ARE GLASS......"THEY'RE ALUMINUM!!" 

THE JETTYWOLF ISN'T A BOAT YOU'LL FIND AT BOB'S BOAT SALES ON THE STREET. THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE! 

I CAN SAY HONESTLY, CUSTOMERS DO NOT HARDLY ASK THE SIZE OR THE TYPE OF BOAT THEY'LL BE ON ALL DAY LONG, OR HOW SAFE IT IS FOR THEIR PARENTS OR CHILDREN.

"""THEY SHOULD ASK""""
.......OR YOU CAN END UP ON SOME TIPSY, DINGY, THAT'S ABOUT AS SAFE AS USING YOUR CAR AS A CHARTER FISHING VESSEL!!

7/26 - FINALLY.......!!!!



"A JETTYWOLF MOMENT" - long over due, or I'm just getting old. It's one or the other, but it's happening right now JULY 26th 2017.

This project started with the price shopping, design ideas etc. way back a month ago on June 26th.

I had a standard T-top on my last boat the FOR REELIN ll, but over time and being a real die hard, I took it off and sold it to some guy. I went 100% hard core. Had a super tall custom windshield built, a new grab rail was made to go around the windshield, added 8 rod holders vertically down the side of the console. I fished the boat that way for almost 7 years.

So naturally, when I had the Jettywolf built, I did the same thing. NO TOP...mega console, rod holders running down the side of the console vertically.
The Jettywolf will be 11 years old come October 18th....."that folks is a LONG time to have the sun beating down on you.

Now, the Jettywolf gets a complete make-over! A HUGE FOUR POST TOP!

7/24 - More New Moon Fishing & Trout Workshop:

CCA FLORIDA ADVOCATE EMAIL:


















7/24 - Big Redbass bite today was not good at all. Had James M and his Mom out all day.

Well at first, it rained on us pretty good first thing this morning. (My new top on the Jettywolf will help with staying dry....when its done. Hopefully by Thursday the 26th!!!!!!)



















this pic just doesn't do these clouds justice. It was ominous looking.
the red bite wasn't even close to two days ago.
but we finally got one to hook itself.



















when the tide was flooding so hard we couldn't even fish for the reds, we fished a slower current area with shrimp and 2 ounce egg sinkers and caught 4 Pup black drum, and two were 15" so they went in the box. We also had mangrove snappers and small Lane snappers.
