Colossal Catch: The Reel Experience
One of our top picks in Fort Pierce. Get the ‘Reel Offshore Experience’ with Captain Jonathan Kranker aboard his 22 ft Tidewater center console, the Colossal Catch. It is rare to see boats of this size that can tackle offshore waters with as much gusto as the Colossal Catch, whose huge Carolina flare gives it an extremely dry ride and whose facilities and creature comforts make it an enjoyable and comfortable boat to spend hours on out at sea.
Captain Jonathan’s goal is simple: to make sure that every angler on board has the best fishing experience of their life. He will teach you all the techniques you need to know to become an amazing angler, giving you the chance to see what it is like to be a boat owner: catching live bait, switching between fishing techniques and learning about the best areas to fish and techniques to use depending on the conditions. You will be using the same top of the line tackle the captain uses himself, with Penn reels and custom Blackfin rods all supplied on board.
Your trip will generally take place between three to nine miles offshore, although in very rough conditions it is also possible to explore the area’s great inshore fishery for Snook, Redfish, Trout and Tarpon. When fishing offshore, you could be trolling for species such as King Mackerel and Mahi Mahi, kite fishing for Sailfish, or bottom fishing for Snappers and Groupers.
Take the opportunity to fish with a knowledgeable captain who has lived and fished the area his whole life and will give you a real hands on experience of offshore fishing.

Went fishing on December 22, 2017
Jonathan was great—friendly, knowledgeable, and funny. We caught snapper, porgie, grouper, barracuda, remora, and a blacktip reef shark. The weather was almost perfect which allowed us to go to several spots. Highly recommend to others.

Went fishing on July 20, 2017
Jonathan was great the whole trip. Boat was ready and waiting at the time we agreed on. We went right out and he caught 2 dozen bait fish in just a few minutes…then headed over to the fishing grounds. Hooked up right away…caught 2 baracudas, a goliath grouper, a king mackerel, and a baby nurse shark. My kids had a wonderful time. Will definately book with Jonathan again.
