Capt. Dave’s Sportfishing

Capt. Dave Sipler Jacksonville, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Step aboard the Jettywolf with Captain Dave for some of the best inshore fishing that Jacksonville has to offer. Anglers can expect to catch Speckled Sea Trout, Redfish, and Black Drum along with more seasonal species such as Spanish Mackerel, Sheepshead, Sharks, Flounder, Jacks, Whiting, Croaker, trophy size bull Redfish, and more.

Looking for a trophy fish? Bull Redfish are among the hardest fighting inshore fish in these waters and can provide an adrenaline pumping fight on properly matched tackle. A big Redfish is a stubborn fighter, known for unforgiving, steady runs. Those looking to fill the cooler and families with younger anglers will be in good hands with Captain Dave. He has a half day trip that he’s been running for over 20 years that’s geared toward taking kids 10 and under fishing.

Not sure what kind of fishing is best for you and your guests? Captain Dave can work with anglers of all levels of fishing skill and experience to make sure everybody has a safe, comfortable, and most of all exciting day out on the water!

Captain Dave has been a full-time Jacksonville fishing guide for over 23 years and has become a truly authoritative expert on everything that Jacksonville’s inshore fishery has to offer. His extensive knowledge and experience fishing this area allows him to put anglers on fish in just about any combination of season and conditions. Captain Dave’s specialty is float-rig fishing, but anglers aboard the Jettywolf can also partake in jigging-casting, bottom fishing, and drift fishing depending on the targeted species.

Captain Dave’s “Jettywolf” is among the largest, safest, and most family friendly inshore fishing charter boat in the area. A 26’ all aluminum center console with shaded mega-top, the commercially built Jettywolf was custom designed by Captain Dave specifically for the type of fishing that he has been doing for decades. Although you will be cruising in comfort on the Jettywolf, Captain Dave’s motto when it comes to guiding is “no long boat rides.” Captain Dave will get you to his hotspots quickly, maximizing your fishing time on your trip.

Fishermen aboard the Jettywolf will be dropping a line in the waters east of downtown Jacksonville on the St. Johns River and inlet, along with the Nassau River and Nassau Sound Inlet. Fishing these calmer, protected inshore waters allows for year-round angling. Not only are these areas teeming with fish, they also offer some of the most scenic inshore fishing opportunities in the region.

Captain Dave’s fishing charters include 1-4 guests, with all bait, licenses, tackle, ice, cooler, and safety equipment included. Whether you are a veteran angler or simply trying to have a family day on the water, book a trip with Captain Dave’s Sport Fishing charter today, and discover firsthand all that the Jacksonville inshore waters have to offer.
