Capt. Donnie Jackson, Jr.
Capt. Donnie Jackson, Jr. is a second generation professional fisherman and boat captain with 20 years experience. He has been fishing since he was a toddler and has been first mate for his father, Donnie Sr. since he was a young boy.
Donnie Jr. grew up on the water sort of speak as his father made the rounds throughout Southeast Louisiana’s most popular fishing rodeos each summer in their boat, the legendary “Sea Cruiser”. Even though the “Sea Cruiser” has had many iterations from sporty “cabin cruisers” to super fast “cigarette” style fishing boats, the name is legendary among tournaments such as the “Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo”.
Donnie Sr. has been a professional fisherman for over 40 years, fishing the waters of the Gulf of Mexico for all types of fish imaginable. Over the last 15 years, he has chosen to compete in fast paced tournaments such as the Southern Kingfish Association (SKA) and gave up the cabin cruiser for the fast, tournament style, fishing boats. The duo has competed together in SKA and Yamaha Pro Tour for years and have placed in the top 5 numerous times fishing throughout coastal waters of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and North & South Carolina.
Donnie Jr. has taken cue from his father’s interest in this fast pace style of fishing and has decided of late to bring that same tournament style characteristics and lets not forget “fun” to the fishing charter business.
Armed with his most precious weapon of all, the 35ft Contender Tournament “Sea Cruiser” and the latest fishing gear, Capt.Donnie Jr. will lead you on the journey of a lifetime in just a day.
