J Van Charters
One of our top picks in Clearwater. J Van Charters offers fantastic inshore and offshore fishing trips out of Clearwater, Fl, targeting anything from Redfish and Snook, to Amberjack, Mahi Mahi and Kingfish depending on what you want to go for. Clearwater is a town well named, known for its beautiful crystal seas and white sandy beaches, not to mention the awesome array of fisheries in the area. Located on Florida’s Gulf Coast, the area is an angler’s paradise of secluded shallows and vibrant reefs, with great access to the deeper waters of the Gulf - the most difficult thing about fishing here is choosing what to target!
The vessel you will be fishing aboard is a 24 ft Outcast center console with room aboard for up to five passengers. Powered by a 250HP Suzuki, she cruises at an impressive 45 knots, meaning you will waste no time getting to where you need to be. The boat comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, a livewell full to bursting with fresh live bait and a trolling motor for sneaking through the skinny waters in search of spooky shallow-dwellers.
Whether you are looking to go offshore or inshore, J Van Charters will be sure to put you on the best fish. You will be presented with a huge array of options when it comes to tackle, and can spend the day trolling for Kingfish, bottom fishing for Snapper and Grouper, sight casting for Redfish, or even getting up close and personal for some spearfishing, for those looking for a more hands on fishing experience. All trips come with nothing but the best fishing equipment and bait to make sure you catch the biggest fish, which Captain Jim will clean and fillet for you back at the dock - just make sure you bring a big cooler to put them all in!

Had a great trip with my father and brother offshore fishing. Captain Jim was knowledgeable and friendly. The boat was spacious enough for us and probably could have fit a few more comfortably. The tackle provided was in great condition and had a plethora of bait choices to be sure we always had what the fish were bitting on. Captain Jim and his deck hand Jack worked tirelessly to make sure we were on top of fish and always had bait in the water. We caught at least 9 different species keeping 17 including 11 delicious yellowtail snapper. I would recommend this charter to anyone and I plan to go with them again myself.

Jim was incredibly accommodating and knowledgable. He and Jack did all of the hard work for us so that we could just focus on the fun part (catching fish). We successfully caught a variety, including a big red. We highly recommend Capt Jim!
