Jacksonville’s Expert on Saltwater Fishing in Florida!
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, where he spent most of his time fishing the St. Johns River, Captain Bump 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
Off the water, Captain Bump is a regular contributor to Florida Sportsman magazine and is often showcased in its pages. He is a frequent guest on Flats Class TV with C.A. Richardson, and every Saturday he co-host’s the popular Still Just Fishing radio show with Captain Vic Tison. Over the years, he has designed several successful fishing products, including the Straight Jacket™ spinner bait which is sold worldwide.
