Just Killin Time Charters

Just Killin Time Charters runs angling trips out of Punta Gorda and offers to show you what the local fishery is all about.

Capt. Brad is here to get you on some fish, and to make sure you have fun doing it. You’ll be using techniques like bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, and spinning, depending on what you’re going after. As part of their 4 to 8-hour trips, you can target species like Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, Snapper, Sheepshead, and Shark, depending on the current season and weather conditions.

Your boat for the day will be a 22’ Sea Pro that fits up to 4 anglers at any one time. The boat comes with an ice box.

The price of your trip includes all the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need for a productive day on the water.

Your trip will include all the necessary fishing licenses for the day.

You can keep anything you catch, as long as it’s legal to do so.

Want to bring the rest of the family along for the ride? Kids are welcome aboard, so you’re free to make it a family adventure.

Book your trip now and hit the water with Just Killin Time Charters.

The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
I grew up fishing salt and fresh water in South and Central Florida my whole life. I enjoy being outdoors and sharing the outdoors with others. After a long career as a firefighter, I am now able to take people fishing full-time and see them enjoy being outside and fishing as much as I enjoy it.
