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.

The captain and his first mate took us out for the whole day (and some extra time). We caught a dozen keepers (3 different kind of Snappers, a Kingfish, Triggerfish and a Bonita). We had to toss back many more (to include a real nice grouper ( as it was out of season)).

The waves were quite high all day (but we were told that before going out and it was our decision to make a day of it). We were comfortable with the captain’s abilities . The Captain and first mate (Andy) were both outstanding.

It was a pleasure to watch as they both were excited every time we pulled in a fish. It’s obvious that Captain Jonathan takes pride in giving the customers a great experience.  We will be back.

Thanks Captain Jonathan and Andy.

Had a great time fishing with Capt. Jonathon Kranker aboard the Colossal Catch: The Reel Experience”, the wind kept us from getting to the offshore bite that we wanted, but we still had a great day on the bay catching Snook, and Mangrove Snapper. Jonathon offered us a $200.00 discount on our next trip because we could not get offshore, could not be more fair then that!!! We will be back Capt. Jonathon!!! Thank You!!!

My friend Tim and I had an amazing day on the ocean with Captain Jonathan. Weather was perfect, the boat and gear were fantastic, and the red snapper bite was on! We would highly recommend this boat and captain to any level of fisherman. We will definitely book again with the Colossal Catch and Captain Jonathan again!
