Colossal Catch: The Reel Experience

Get on board the Colossal Catch and have “The Reel Experience” fishing the offshore waters out of Florida! Captain Jonathan Kranker was born and raised in the area, and has been fishing since he was a kid, so you can be sure you’re in great hands.

Capt. Jonathan welcomes you aboard his 27’ Conch center console boat, the Colossal Catch. It is rare to see boats of this size that can tackle offshore waters like this one. It has a synthetic/composite hull which means you’ll be able to enjoy a dry ride offshore in full comfort.

Captain Jonathan’s goal is simple – to make sure 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.

You’ll be 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 3 to 9 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. He will give you a real hands-on offshore fishing experience.

Get excited, book the Colossal Catch: The Reel Experience, and come enjoy some of the best fishing under the Floridian sun!
