Catching Fins Charters

Do you daydream of fishing while surrounded by pristine nature? Daydream no longer! Catching Fins Charters, with Captain Curt Temple at the helm, brings your dream to life in the productive waters of Florida.

Capt. Curt invites you for a fishing excursion on board his 19’ Ranger. It’s a mean fishing machine – capable of holding 4 anglers and the captain in comfort, with everyone fishing at the same time. The engine is a 200 HP Yamaha HDPI outboard and it’ll get you to your fishing grounds in no time.

Once you’re where you want to be the wireless trolling motor comes into play – you can sneak up even on the spookiest fish around. There’s a PowerPole on board as well, it’ll keep the boat steady so you can make the perfect cast.

You’ll go after a wide range of species with Capt. Curt, depending on where you want to fish. He’ll take you all the way from the ocean-side reefs where you’ll go after Groupers, Snappers, and Hogfish. You can also explore the mangrove paths and shallows of the Everglades where you’ll hook up Redfish, Snook, Tarpon (when in season), Flounder, Mangrove Snapper, and others.

Anglers of any level of experience are welcome on board – if you’re a beginner Capt. Curt will cover the basics and if you’re a seasoned pro he’ll be the perfect assistant. You might catch that new personal best!

Whether you’re looking for a relaxing day on the water or the next adrenaline rush, booking a trip with Catching Fins Charters is the right move.

It's 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 favorite fish to eat.
