JJ Fishing Charters

318 sw 13 st
Cape Coral FL, United States

JJ Fishing Charters invites you for a fun day on the shallow waters of Southwest Florida The charter is operated by Captain John Johnson (JJ) who grew up fishing the lakes and rivers of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. He moved to Florida with his wife in order to pursue a lifelong dream of being a Florida fishing guide. And he has done it!

Specializing in Shark fishing South of Boca Grande, Captain JJ can provide a true adventure of a lifetime! The sharks in SWFL are plentiful and the variety seems endless. From Hammerhead and Lemon Shark to Blacktip, Bonnethead, and Nurse Shark, every fight is a different rush of adrenaline. Learn the importance of fresh bait and how to determine the species and gender of the Shark.

Captain JJ will take you fishing in the super productive shallow waters of Florida’s southwest coast where Redfish, Snook, Tripletail and other species can be caught almost year round. This area enjoys a climate suitable to very tasty fish which also prove to have good game qualities.

Captain JJ operates a 22’ Sea Chaser center console, which is powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine, with a maximum cruising speed of over 30 knots! The boat is stable and efficient in getting you to the productive grounds, as well as making quick changes between spots.

That means you will not waste time on lengthy travel, and having JJ as your captain will only increase your chances of reeling in the fish of your dreams. Captain JJ enjoys teaching his guests how to fish, in a very relaxed and fun atmosphere.

Captain JJ will provide you with the necessary fishing gear, and that includes lures and live bait, a fishing license, and bottled water. He can clean and fillet your catch at the end of the trip, so bring a cooler in order to transport the fish home safely.

We (myself, fiancé and son) went out on the boat with Captain JJ on July 2nd. My son had been dying to hook into something huge, and oh how his wish came true for his birthday! Captain JJ was so kind, patient and just a natural with my son (I would imagine any kid) in teaching, coaching and watching to make sure he was doing things correctly and safely. My son reeled up 4’ black tip and a 6’ Nurse shark, by himself…thank you making his 14th birthday so very awesome!
We look forward to our next adventure! I wish there were 10 stars available! Thanks again!

We had such a wonderful experience on our trip from Colorado. Captain JJ certainly knew what he was doing and there was never a dull moment! I would recommend him to anyone looking for something new to do! I had a blast, and learned a lot along the way! Thank you for everything!
