Fineline Fishing Charters is a versatile charter service offering professionally guided fishing trips to anglers and vacationers of all skill levels. This two-man father-son team are intimately familiar with Florida’s Space Coast and will take YOU to where the fish are! From the calm flats of Mosquito Lagoon, to the nearby wrecks and reefs of Port Canaveral, Fineline Fishing Charters can do it all!

Led by Captain Jim Ross and his experienced son Captain Justin Ross, your fishing adventure starts when you step aboard their 24ft Skeeter Bay Boats. Captain Jim and Justin have invested in top of the line equipment to ensure your best chances for an action-packed day full of bent rods! These include power poles, wireless trolling motors, Simrad and Lowrance chart plotters, fish finders, and top of the line fishing tackle. These boats can comfortably fish up to 4 anglers, not including your Captains!

The flats and intracoastal water ways are home to an abundant population of inshore gamefish, and the nearby reefs and wrecks offshore are loaded with hard fighting pelagic and bottom species. On your inshore fishing trips, you can expect to find Tarpon, Snook, Red Drum, Black Drum, Seatrout, jacks, and more tugging on the other end of your line! The weather and wave height will determine if you can head offshore, but on your bottom fishing trip you’ll find catch and release action on some of the oceans toughest game species including Red Snapper, Barracuda, Tarpon, Bonito, huge Crevalle Jack, and a variety of shark species including bull black tip and hammerhead.  If you are looking for something to invite to dinner King Mackerel, Snook, Tripletail, Cobia, and a few others can be iced in their fish box.

Launching as far north as Oak Hill and as far south as Sebastian, Fineline Fishing Charters travels to where the bite is at! Captain Jim and Captain Justin will work with you to learn about the kind of fishing trip you’re interested in, and custom tailor the day on the water to meet your needs!

5 out of 5 stars
  • Great Fishing Day!

    Created Dennie Jensen

    My wife and I have had the pleasure of fishing with Capt Jim and Capt Justin and have plans to book with them again. They are both very knowledgeable and work very hard to put you in the fish. They use top notch equipment and are going to give you a great day on the water.

  • Great Charter!

    Created Daniel Davis

    This was my third year fishing for big black drum down in Florida and my first time using Fineline. We had tasked captain Justin with putting us on the big drum. They were very illusive this year, but our Captain was able to find the school of them. Within minutes I had a monster on the line and roughly 20 minutes later, I had him in the boat. It was a tough day of tracking them but Justin did an amazing job tracking them down. The only downside to the trip was the other charter that was out there kept waiting for us to drop our lines, then he would bring his group right over to our spot. Not only could you tell that captain had no idea how to find them and was relying on Justin to do the work, that captain was also using different bait and they only pulled up the occasional drum that was way smaller to what we landed. I highly recommend Fineline. Captain Justin had a great boat, great gear, great attitude, and tons of knowledge.

  • Love This Charter

    Created Keith Skelton

    I have fished with Jim several times over the years and each trip is a great memory. Fishing with Captain Jim Ross is like fishing with your best friend who just happens to be the best fisherman. Captain Ross works very hard to find fish and is incredibly patient. Always in good spirits and fun to be around. At the end of the day, you WILL be a better fisherman.

  • Very Professional

    Created Brandon Johnson

    Captain Jim Ross is the real deal. I did my research before choosing a space coast charter captain and everything led back to Fineline Fishing Charters and Captain Jim Ross. Jim is a full time professional captain and it shows. I had an absolute blast from the moment we left the dock. You’ll benefit from his wealth of knowledge of local fisheries and top notch equipment. I can’t wait to visit again soon to get some inshore fishing done. When I do, there’s no question who’s boat I’ll be casting from.

  • Awesome Time

    Created Rob Scott

    We had an awesome time out fishing with captain Jim Ross. He put us on tarpon and sharks the whole time we were out. One of us landed a big black tip shark that we will get mounted. You will not be disappointed if you book with him.

  • Awesome Guide!

    Created Lairn Malone

    I have been fishing with Jim for almost 20 years and have caught fish I only used to dream about. Jim seems to have a sixth sense about finding fish. If there are fish to be caught he will find them. Here is a photo of me and my son with nice redfish in the Indian River and me with a king mackerel right outside of Canaveral.

  • Highly Recommend

    Created Ray J

    Hey Space Coast. My wife and I don't take long vacations, but we do reserve fishing Captains all around Florida. A lot of the guides are good, but only a few are great and we return to them. Jim Ross is that guide ! We've fished with him many times. He produces, he's fun, you know he's always up on the new stuff and we like the country music coming from the Skeeter speakers. We never hesitate to reserve with Captain Jim !

  • Great Overall Trip

    Created Andrew Cameron

    I’ve gone out with Capt. Jim and Capt. Justin a couple times. Each time, they put their knowledge to the test and it shows in the experience. They found the fish they looking for and displayed superior confidence within their craft. Super comfortable boats, great looking gear, and overall a superb experience. Highly recommend, if you are looking to catch your next memory!
