Catching Fins Charters

84001 Overseas Hwy
Islamorada FL, United States

Hey Hey Hey!!!! I’m Captain (Jay) Curt Temple Jr., owner & operator of Catching Fins Charters located in the Postcard Inn at Holiday Isle. Catching Fins Charters is all about YOU having the best experience on the water first and foremost. Come with us and enjoy the beauty of the Everglades fishing.

I welcome and appreciate anyone at any level of fishing experience. Its all about having fun and catching some fish. I offer other fun activities like bully-netting for lobster after sundown. Another great trip is trolling for grouper around the many patch reefs here in Islamorada followed by an afternoon shark wrangle to really bend the rod.

My favorite trip is teaching the kids to fish, from baiting the hook to a safe release back into the wild. Or put some food on the table as there is no better feeling than finishing your day off with cooking your catch. We look forward to hearing from you! Many thanks!

Its a way of life and wanted to give others the chance to see it. Fishing is a very powerful experience and a true game of patience and reward. Grouper is my fish to eat.
