Day 2  "Long-Time Clients"    Kevin Darnell's second "Charlotte Harbor" day with Son, Justin & Son-in-law, Ryan was "Awesome"!  Their combined catch of Snook, Redfish, Tarpon & Jack Crevalle set another "Catching" day of over 45+ for the Darnell family!  Kevin  has returned to FLTC for many trips w/Capt. Derrick Jacobsen!  We always have fun with Capt. Derrick & he always puts us on plenty of fish to "Battle"!    "Awesome Day of Florida Light Tackle Fishing"!!!




Isidoro Roffe & his Son, Isaac had plenty to talk about after "Landing" sum, 35+ game-fish consisting of; Redfish, Snook, Trout, & Jack Crevalle!  They were guided by Capt. Derrick Jacobsen in the beautiful backwaters of "World Famous Charlotte Harbor"!  Isidoro battled so many fish he told Capt. Derrick he couldn't reel in another fish!  He said; "lets go back early, this has been the best charter out of many that I have ever hired, you are very personable & professional, Thank You for a great day w/my Son, I'll be back soon"!!!  




 Steve Holaday & his buddy George spent the day w/Capt. Derrick Jacobsen "Catching" over 30+ Redfish, Snook, Tripletail, & Jack Crevalle while fishing "Charlotte Harbor's" backcountry grass-flats & mangrove islands! 



"FLTC's Family Day"    Another fun-filled August day of flats fishing for V.P Christy Jacobsen w/daughter, Kaci & her niece, Tiffany Moore!  Everybody always asks Capt. Derrick Jacobsen, "What do you do on your days off?"  You can usually find him w/his family fishing the backcountry, he enjoys watching & teaching them the art of "Catching"!!!
