Capt. Tim’s Fishing Charters

Come to Pine Island and have a fishing adventure off the coast of Florida with Capt. Tim’s Fishing Charters! Captain Tim Jeleniowski has been an avid fisherman since he was a kid. He’ll make sure to take you to all the honey holes in the area, and help make your trip as productive as possible.

Your vessel for the day will be a 22’ Panga Marine performance fishing boat, custom rigged for the ultimate fishing expedition. The Panga hull allows the boat to navigate the shallow flats and open bays of Southwest Florida with ease. It offers stability in a few feet of chop as well as the ability to float in just a few inches of water.

The boat is fitted with a custom flats tower that will help you in your search for trophy fish. There’s a wireless trolling motor on board, so you don’t have to worry about scaring away those fearful specimens. All fishing tackle, lures, and live bait are included in the price of the trips.

Capt. Tim offers a variety of fishing trips based on your own individual goals. Whether you want to have a shot at some of the world’s best fishing waters or watch the sunset over the gulf as you take a break on the perfect island beaches, they have you covered. Book today – your adventure awaits!

When it comes to fishing, you’ll explore the shallower Florida waters in search of a variety of species. You’ll target creatures like Snook, Tarpon, and Redfish, as well as different species of Snapper and Grouper. The captain will be happy to clean and fillet your catch if you’re up for a nice dinner upon your return home, or just to fill the freezer.

Capt. Tim has operated several boats throughout his life. He loves to pass his passion on to guests on his charter trips and welcomes all levels of fishermen aboard.

Join Capt. Tim’s Fishing Charters and explore some of the most productive waters off the coast of Florida!

Hi, I am Captain Tim Jeleniowski. I specialize in light tackle inshore fishing for Snook, Redfish, Trout, Tarpon, and more. When you fish with me, you'll be treated to a ride in my custom boat and to top of the line gear from the custom handmade rods and top of the line reels. Before you know it you'll be yelling "Fish On!."
