Catching The Cure Charters

Spend an amazing day on the water with Catching The Cure Charters! Southwest Florida is renowned for its fishing potential: regardless of if you’re headed to Naples, Estero Bay, or Fort Myers Beach, the bite is on and the rods are bent almost throughout the year. Captain Jon Fetter operates Catching the Cure Charters offering 4, 6, and 8-hour inshore fishing trips, targeting the likes of Tarpon, Redfish, Snook, Shark, only to name a few.

Catching the Cure is a 21’ center console bay boat, outfitted with a GPS and fish finding equipment, with enough room to accommodate 4 passengers. The boat features a 200 HP Mercury engine, a cooler, and a live bait tank as well.

The waters are abundant with Snook and Redfish in spring and summer, whereas species such as Sheepshead, Seatrout, and Snapper 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 Captain Jon’s charters are covered by the captain and are included in the trip’s overall price.

Catching The Cure Charters welcomes you aboard!

I grew up fishing farm ponds and small lakes in Northwest Ohio! Caught the saltwater fishing itch in 1993 and haven’t looked back! I love sharing this adventure with other people.
