Capt. Jim Ross

"Tarpon & Light Tackle Fishing Specialist"

east central

NO FISH NO PAY GUARANTEE...................it's that simple!

 

 

Capt. Jim Ross is a United States Coast Guard licensed captain in Rockledge, Florida. He is a third generation native and full time fishing guide working on the productive waters of central Florida over 250 days a year. His understanding of the feeding habits and migratory patterns of the fish he pursues throughout the year has made him one of the most respected fishing guides on Florida's East Coast.

At a young age, Jim started chasing various near shore and backwater species with light tackle and has acquired the skills and patience to land massive fish on extremely light gear. His passion for light tackle fishing shows. Jim has an International Game Fish Association (I.G.F.A) World Record certificate in the Fly Fishing division to show for it. He is also heralded as one of the pioneers credited with bringing the sport of shallow water "sight" fishing to the grass flats of the Indian, Banana, and Mosquito Lagoons. For the past decade Captain Jim has been teaching his clients these techniques, creating memorable fishing adventures whenever possible.

 

Because of his knowledge and fishing expertise, Captain Jim was hired by Florida Sportsman Magazine in 1997 as the host of a live weekly radio show covering the fishing action on Central Florida's East Coast. The show "Florida Sportsman Magazine Live" transmits from Melbourne Florida every Saturday morning from 8:05 to 9:00 a.m. on radio station 920 WMEL Angler's from Daytona Beach to Orlando to Ft. Pierce tune in weekly to hear the latest fishing information available.(www.920wmel.com. for worldwide live streaming audio)

 

Coverage Area:  East Central Florida and the Orlando Region, to include; Mosquito Lagoon, the Indian River, the Banana River, and the Nearshore waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Species Targeted:    Giant Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, Sea Trout, Giant Jack Crevalle, Drum, Flounder, Kingfish, Tuna and Shark.

 

Please click HERE for a description and pictures of some of the game fish you may catch aboard a Florida Light Tackle Fishing Charter.

 

Methods:  Spin Tackle and Fly-fishing.  Artificial Lures & Bait.

Tournament Charters:  Available for anywhere in coverage area. Click HERE for more information.

Sight Seeing & Nature Tours:  Available for personalized sightseeing & nature tours. 

Maximum Anglers:  Five

 

Boat:  Skeeter Bay Boat, powered by a Yamaha 225 H.P. Four Stroke Outboard.  The boat is fast, dry and can comfortably fish up to four or even five anglers. 

 

The Pathfinder floats in less then a foot of water, which is a necessity when targeting Snook, Redfish and Trout in our shallow waters, and she will comfortably cross open water in a stiff chop, whereas most traditional "Flats boats" will pound you to death while soaking you with saltwater spray.

 

In addition, her size will enable you to take the whole family or group, as fishing up to four or even five anglers is not only comfortable, but safe and routine.

 

Charter includes:  Rod, reels, fly gear, live, dead & artificial bait, tackle, fishing licenses, sodas & water, ice, fish cleaning & bagging and no fish no pay guarantee.  Our professional and friendly attitude is free of charge.

 

Tournaments & Sponsors:  Captain Jim competes in the FLW and IFA Professional Redfish tournament trails, and is currently sponsored by: Skeeter boats, Yamaha Motors, Lowrance electronics, Tru-Turn Industries, Saltwater Assassin Lures, Ron Norris GMC tow vehicles, Scientific Angler/3M, Powertech Propellers, Space Coast Marine, Shimano rods and reels, Bite-a-Bait lures, Minn Kota trolling motors, and Costa Del Mar sun glasses.
