Captain Jim Johnson
(904) 277-0775

USCG veteran and member of the Mercury Saltwater Pro Team, Capt Jim Johnson has been a professional guide fishing the waters of north east Florida and Amelia Island since 1980.
The boats he runs are no less than top notch. The 18' Hewes Flats Boat will have you casting your fly to the elusive Redfish in the grass flats, casting a top water plug to Speckled Trout in the creeks, or chasing Tarpon in the rivers in no time at all.

If offshore trolling for King Mackerel and Wahoo, chasing Cobia or bottom fishing for Red Snapper is your game, then rest assured the 23' Donzi powered by twin Mercury 150 outboards will get you to where the action is fast, safe and comfortable.

Top of the line boats should be equipped with top of the line tackle as well! Capt Jim and his wife Sally also operate Amelia Island Bait and Tackle on Amelia Island, Florida. With the finest in fishing tackle available, you know your equipment is always tuned and ready for the sound of line stripping off the reel and "FISH ON!"


Under the watchful eye of Capt Jim, redfish can be seen 'tailing' in the grass flats. During these flood tides you will quietly stalk a 'tailer' to get in casting range. If your presence is discovered, the redfish will be gone. A well presented fly or hopping plastic jig will take even the most wary of reds. An occasional sheephead foraging for food in the grass will also challenge your angling prowess.

From brown shrimp to giant game fish, the waters of Amelia Island are fertile beyond belief. Roaming schools of redfish ghost along the sandy flats, ready almost always for an easy meal. Spotted sea trout move hungrily over and around the oyster bars with the tides and will take artificial lures or live shrimp.


Offshore fishing is a real treat with Jimmy. Fishing out of his 23' Donzi center console, dolphin, kingfish, wahoo and tuna are plentiful and easy to find for a full-time guide like Jimmy, not to mention the Red Snapper and Grouper
