Blue Cyclone Inland Charters

Blue Cyclone Inland Charters is run by Captain Chris Holleman and offers light tackle inshore fishing trips in the St. Johns River/Intracoastal Waterway and their backwater tributaries. Captain Chris has been on the water ever since he was eight, and will show you every nook and cranny where the best fishing happens.

You will be fishing aboard a 20’ Champion flats boat that is powered by a 200 HP Mercury ProXS engine that can have it cruising up to an impressive 43 knots. Apart from all the necessary navigation and safety gear, the boat has livewell for storing all the bait you’ll need as well as a wireless trolling motor to sneak up on unsuspecting fish.

Captain Chris specializes in inshore fishing, so you will be going into the shallow waters and flats where fish such as Redfish, Flounder, Black Bass, Trout, and Snook can be found. Both live bait and artificial lures and jigs will be used for the best results. All sorts of fishermen are welcome, doesn’t matter if you’re a veteran angler or are very new to the fishing world.

The price of the trip includes all of the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle. Captain Chris is sponsored by Bomber Lures and knows how important quality gear is for a good fishing trip. Feel free to bring some drinks and snacks, as well as polarized sunglasses and sunscreen for maximum comfort.

I've been obsessed with Fishing Jacksonville's St. Johns River and its backwater tributaries since I started fishing my home waters with my dad at around 8 years old. It's been a life-long study and I enjoy sharing my knowledge with those that share my passion for fishing. I know a variety of techniques and can probably accommodate your preferred style of fishing if you give me a heads up on your preferences beforehand.
