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:

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.

FINALLY....(ALOT OF FUN)

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.





























































I GOT ONE ON MY BRAND NEW ''JIGGING MASTER - WIKI REEL''










































































I CAUGHT ME A DUCK DECOY!

And wants to thank everyone. My Fishing Saga Continues I'm almost 100%....so let's go catch us some "sweetheart Trout" or Big Bull Redfish!

www.captdaves.com ....in case you missed it on the video and at the top of this description. (most do) D-O-H!!

and I had zero internet service, so all this was done via Wifi with my dumbphone over T-Mobile.

HAVE A QUESTION...Yeah I may answer it. LOL!

More will be seen in the future when it comes to using this jigging reel for some big fish.

So stay tuned.

Here's the link to the Shimano Tranx reel and the Ugly Stik catfish rod against a nice sized Blacktip shark:
