    I'd like to share that he is a true ECO-Friendly-Captain! While heading out to the Gulf for our scalloping trip he veered off course and headed for something only he could see- a water bottle floating away. He asked us to assist him netting it out of the water. I was so impressed that he wanted to do this little gesture.I've chartered with Captain Jody several times and have always been impressed with his knowledge of the area. Youre in good hands!

  • Jonah N.8/24/2021

    Had a great time scalloping with Jody! Caught a great lunch and saw plenty of wildlife along the way.

  • Kira C.7/31/2021

    Highly recommend Captain Jody! We were stranded in the gulf on the 4th of July and thought for sure we would be stuck for a while. He showed up and helped us back to shore so quick! Give him a call, you won't regret it!

  • Alyssa C.7/31/2021

    Out of all the charter captains I have met, he is the most humble, kind, and funnest I have encountered! I will definitely be reaching out again next season!

  • evan c.7/31/2021

    Best fishing charter ever, there was more fish out there than the Georgia Aquarium. I’ve never seen a captain so kind than captain Jody.

  • Angelo M.7/31/2021

    Ran out of gas in the gulf, started calling charter captains and CPT Jody was the guy that willing to bring us out 10 gallons of gas on July 4th to get us home!

  • Mikael S.5/31/2021

    Me and my wife had an excellent half day trip fishing with captain Jody!We caught some great trout amongst other things, saw dolphins and manatees! Captain Jody was very friendly, personable and genuine, he really loves what he does and it shows! We can't wait to go back for more trips!

  • Chelsea H.4/01/2021

    Our family of 4 had a half day trip with Jody. We appreciated his advice on how to catch our fish. We loved seeing dolphins on the way back! We'll definitely call him next time we're down here to see what we can do next.

  • Derek D.4/01/2021

    My wife and I spent an entire day with Capt. Jody. From start to finish, he absolutely delivered! We started our morning with a manatee encounter. We were able to find a few and had a very nice swim with one. An absolutely incredible experience. After a quick stop at the dock to drop off our wetsuits,we were off to catch some fish. The action was, again, incredible. We landed more fish and species than I was able to keep track of and had a blast doing it. Capt. Jody was informative and personable. Having fished with several other guides, I can say without hesitation that Capt. Jody is top notch. We can’t wait to hit the water with him again!

  • Paul C.6/08/2020

    Capt. Jody was amazing! It was my 16 year old son and his best friend and we absolutely loved it! Jody put us on the fish, cleaned them perfectly and we had our first fish fry at home the next day. Absolutely delicious. I highly recommend.

  • Juliana S.4/08/2020

    Had a wonderful excursion to swim with the manatees. He knew just the spot, and got there early before too many people were there. A manatee came up to us to have us scratch their belly!

  • CARLOS C.4/08/2019
