About Captain Jim

A United States Coast Guard veteran, Captain Jim Johnson has been a professional guide fishing the local waters of Northeast Florida and Amelia Island since 1982. He is the ultimate light tackle fishing guide on Amelia Island. If the sea is not your style, Jimmy knows the back waters of Amelia Island and has been fishing here nearly his entire life.

Chasing redfish in the grass, throwing lures or live shrimp for speckled trout, or casting his infamous Contender Lures, Jim knows where to find flounder, jack cravell, lady fish, blues, and even the tasty whiting. His boat, a Parker, is considered the choice of boats for professional fisherman. They build boats that are dependable and safe so he can focus on more important things like family, friends, fishing and fun!

The Best Tackle

Every top of the line boat should be equipped with top of the line tackle as well! Captain Jim and his wife Sally also own and operate Amelia Island Bait and Tackle on Amelia Island. 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 - "Fish on!"
