Colossal Catch: The Reel Experience

1600 North 2nd Street
Fort Pierce FL, United States

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.

We had an awesome day on the water with Captain Jon. He was very informative and really knowledgeable about fishing in the Fort Pierce area. He was very flexible to provide the best experience possible based on the weather. We spent the morning out in the ocean and the afternoon in the inlet. The next time we want to fish we will book with Captain Jon again.

We were here from Charleston for vacation hoping to get in on the Mahi bite.  The weather didn’t cooperate and Capt. Jon was great at accommodating us, shifting schedules for the best offshore chance.  The weather never changed, so he changed strategy and we went after snook, a bucket list for me.  I had my 5 and 7 year old with me, both avid boaters and fisherman.  Jon was patient and great with the kids, knew the water and most importantly put us on huge slot snook!  Jon is professional, knowledgeable and very accommodating.  Will definitely book with him again.  He even acted as the camera man!  Highly recommend.

Went out yesterday with Captain Jon and my cousins. We had a blast!  I caught a nice King Mackeral and my cousin Moe caught a bigger one!  My cousin Shell caught 2 nurse sharks!  Beautiful day!!  Jon was very accommodating!  I would definitely recommend him and we will definitely go back out with him soon.
