Captain Jim Ross is a United States Coast Guard licensed captain and owner of Fineline Fishing Charters based out of Rockledge, Florida just west of Cocoa Beach for over 20 years. Jim is a second generation native and full-time fishing guide who is on the productive waters of East Central Florida near Orlando roughly 250 days a year.
Captain Justin Ross is a third generation Florida native and 2nd generation full-time fishing guide. Captain Justin grew up on the waters of east central Florida. Being the son of Captain Jim Ross, Justin was taught how to fish almost before he could walk, and has grown up learning the local waters.
We fish top of the line boats designed specifically for fishing the coastal waters of Florida. We have two 24' bay boats and a 17' super skinny water backcountry skiff.
Captain Jim is a confident professional guide. He knows the fishery and understands how to work with people to help them get fish to the boat. I'm a fishing guide in Charleston SC and when I want to get away and fish in Florida for a few days I always hire Captain Jim. He does everything he can to make sure you have a great day on the water.Kevin BlairGoogle Review

Captain Jim Ross is the man! Just got back from a trip w/ Capt Jim and my son. Asked my son what he thought, his reply "Best fishing trip Ever". I agree and we will be going again as soon as possible. Thank you Capt Jim!Elizabeth WalkerFacebook Review
We have gone nearshore out of Port Canaveral with Capt Jim several times in the past few months. He is knowledgable and a good communicator. He does a great job getting on fish and keeping the hooks baited. He worked well with my 11 year old son. Looking forward to an inshore trip in the future.Steve SzaboFacebook Review

Always an awesome experience with Capt. Jim. Been out with him 4 times now and it never disappoints. The tarpon were tearing it up yesterday! Can’t wait to book the next trip.Reece SkeltonGoogle Review
Honestly hands down best charter experience I’ve had. Extremely professional and isn’t afraid to make Extreme changes to fishing techniques to get you the most pleasurable expierence possible. I would highly recommend him for his will power to put you on fish and not stopping till he finds what he’s looking for. As well he was exceedingly good at being polite, courteous and well mannered. I really enjoyed my time and look forward to more excursions in the future.Lance SchleichGoogle Review
