Catching The Cure

Catching the Cure is a 19ft center console boat, outfitted with a GPS and fish finding equipment, with enough room to accommodate 3 passengers. Captain Jon Fetter operates the Cure, offering 4, 6 and 8 hour inshore fishing trips, targeting the likes of Tarpon, Redfish, Snook, Shark, only to name a few.

Southwest Florida is renowned for its fishing potential: regardless of if you’re headed to the Captiva Island, Naples, Pine Island or Fort Myers, the bite is on and the rods are bent almost throughout the year. The waters are abundant with Snook and Redfish in spring and summer, whereas species such as Cobia and Tripletail come to life in the winter months. With the increase in water temperature, fishermen are also given the opportunity to focus on the ‘Silver King’ himself - the big Tarpon.

The area’s grassy flats, abundant mangroves and countless backcountry waters provide some of the best flats fishing around. Captain Jon knows how to put his guests on a Redfish cruising the shallow flats, Snook in the mangroves or Tarpon hiding in the channels. He’s happy to provide simple fishing instructions to those who need it, interesting facts about the area you’re fishing in, as well as quality tackle and bait for anglers of all skill levels. Fly fishing equipment is also provided on board, along with an ice box for your catch of the day. Fishing licenses for all anglers aboard the Cure are covered by the captain, and are included in the trip’s overall price.
