Captain Jackie Calderone
I was born and raised in Florida, and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. I’ve been fishing the local water ways since I could talk. I have spent many hours fishing on land and by boat, and spent a lot of time catching a variety of fish.
There are not many species of fish in Florida that I haven’t caught. Out of all the species, I specialize in catching backwater fish including snook and redfish. I’ve learned how to properly fish for these species, even in the most difficult of environments. Every time I catch a big fish I always push myself to get an even bigger one. Fishing is my passion and there’s nothing that can compete with the sound of a reel screaming.
I look forward to sharing the water with fellow anglers and helping everyone become a better fisherman while having the most fun possible!
