Jacksonville Fishing Guide, Captain Roger Bump is Northeast Florida’s favorite Inshore Saltwater Fishing Guide. Over the past 25 years he has built a reputation for offering first class fishing trips up and down the First Coast. Growing up in Jacksonville fishing the St. Johns River, he rose to prominence as a trophy contender early on winning numerous fishing tournaments both locally and nationally. He is a consistent tournament winner in Northeast Florida and holds the top winning record for kayak fishing in the Southeastern United States.
I am mostly hired for my skills in artificial lures used to target redfish, trout, and flounder. Gator trout is my specialty… My story is a long one and it hasn’t been easy to get where I am but prayer and faith play a major part in my success.—Captain Roger Bump
