TackleBox Fishing Charters invites you on an adventure down in Southwest Florida where you’ll experience the true meaning of “fishing paradise.” Captain Jason Fiora has been studying the waters of Fort Myers since 2004, he knows every nook and cranny, and has landed just about any species that these prolific waters produce.

You’ll be fishing off of a 22’ Skeeter center console, built with both comfort and versatility in mind. The boat accommodates 4 guests and everyone can fish at the same time. She’s equipped with top-quality tackle, a fishfinder, GPS, 2 live bait tanks, and safety gear. Kids ages 4 and up are welcome to join and he’s got life jackets for them, as well.

You’ll have the option between a 4-hour or 8-hour trip, depending on how far you want to fish and what you’d like to target. You can fish the flats and inshore waters or head out into deeper territory to fish above reefs and wrecks. Capt. Jason also offers night fishing where you can target nocturnal species that come out in numbers to feed.

Inshore trips produce legendary species such as Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, and Flounder, while nearshore trips will see you targeting larger species such as King Mackerel, Cobia, and Sheepshead. You can also target various Sharks, such as Lemon and Blacktip, in both shallow and deeper waters.

After you’re done loading the boat up with delicious fish, Capt. Jason will offer to clean and fillet your catch for free. He also has your fishing license covered, so you can come straight down to the Lovers Key Boat Ramp ready to fish! Just meet him 10 minutes before your trip and feel free to bring snacks and drinks.

Get ready for an incredible adventure with TackleBox Fishing Charters and create unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime! Everything you need is taken care of, the only thing left to do is book your trip and pack your bags!

Captain Jason Fiora has been fishing in Southwest Florida since 2004. He became a captain because fishing is something that has always come naturally to him and it’s what he loves to do. Over the years, he has become a master in a variety of techniques, including trolling, jigging, popping, spinning, drifting, and bottom fishing. Capt. Jason specializes in targeting Tarpon, Snook, Permit, Snapper, Redfish, Trout, Tripletail, Kingfish, Flounder, and Shark, and he knows all the best spots around Fort Myers to put you on! He’s a full-time firefighter but when he’s not saving lives he's most likely on the water, showing customers the ultimate fishing experience that Southwest Florida has to offer. Join TackleBox Fishing Charters and let Capt. Jason show you the adventure of a lifetime!
