Castaway Fishing Charters invites you to come on down to Fort Myers for some awesome inshore fishing! Captain John Duch has been fishing in Florida for more than a decade and it’s safe to say he knows his way around these waters. He’s happy to show newcomers how fishing works, as well as exchange tips and tricks with experienced anglers.

His boat is an 18’ Action Craft skiff that runs on a single 115 HP Mercury XPS engine. With an engine like that, it’s able to reach a top speed of an impressive 40 knots. The boat can fit up to 4 guests, and you’re welcome to bring friends or family along for the ride.

Capt. John specializes in inshore fishing, and there’s plenty of it to be done around here! Some of the most common species found here include Redfish, Mangrove Snapper, Snook, and Seatrout. You can fish here with a variety of different techniques, all depending on your preferences.

Whether you’re a fan of conventional or fly fishing, Capt. John will have you covered. He’ll provide you with all the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle for the trip. Not only that but he’ll clean and bag the catch when you’re done. All you need to do is get down to the marina with a pair of polarized sunglasses and you’re all set for a day of adventure!
