" Little Jimmy"

  Capt. Jim Burnsed and I have a wonderful son, we started calling "little jimmy " in 1974. Jim Jr just didn't seen right for our bouncing baby boy...........................................In 1994 he join his Dad as a fishing guide  and  "Capt Jim's Charters " became the  Santiva Saltwater Fishing Team !( In 2000 Jim and Jimmy were joined by son in law Capt. Rob McKay)

21 years later Capt. Jimmy is an accomplished and highly requested  fishing guides with a reputation that can only be shadowed by his Dad ( Capt. Jim ) in the Captiva and Sanibel Island area.   So when you call looking to book a reservation with Capt. Jimmy Burnsed, remember I still call him "little Jimmy"  after all, I'm his mother :) :)

And like the "Helm family" Jimmy will become YOUR guide forever.
