JJ Fishing Charters

Head out for a fun day in the shallow waters surrounding Cape Coral, Florida with “JJ Fishing Charters”! This charter is operated by Captain John Johnson (JJ) who grew up fishing the lakes and rivers in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. He moved to Florida specifically to become a fishing guide and today, he’s one of the best!

Hop aboard his Sea Chaser center console powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine, with a maximum cruising speed of over 30 knots. This stable and efficient ride is the ideal choice for 3 anglers and comes equipped with GPS, Fish Finder, and a live well.

Capt. JJ specializes in Shark fishing and the waters south of Boca Grande certainly don’t disappoint. From Hammerhead and Lemon Shark to Blacktip, Bonnethead, and Nurse Shark, every fight gives you a different rush of adrenaline! He’ll also teach you the importance of fresh bait and how to determine the species and gender of the Sharks along the way.

If it’s tasty table fare and sneaky inshore fish you’re after, head into the super productive shallows where you’ll hook into the likes of Redfish, Snook, and Tripletail. There’s no better way to go home with full coolers!

Capt. JJ brings along all the necessary fishing gear, including lures and live bait. There’s also bottled water to help yourself to and you’re free to bring along any other refreshments you’d like. At the of the trip, he’ll clean and fillet your catch so be sure to bring along a cooler for easy transport home.

Experience a diverse range of fishing in the shallows aboard JJ Fishing Charters!
