Tighten Up Fishing invites anglers new and old to Jensen Beach, FL, for a day of fun-focused fishing, where your aims and enjoyment are always put first. With the option for both inshore and offshore fishing, and a variety of trips to suit your schedule, you will be able to enjoy the very best of Florida’s Atlantic Coast.

In order to get the most out of both environments, Captain Jesse helms a boat built with adaptability in mind. The 22’ Pathfinder saltwater fishing boat can cruise at up to 45 knots to get you to the best fishing grounds in no time. It is stable enough for offshore game fishing, while still having that important shallow draft for getting into the skinny waters inshore.

The boat features all the essentials for some awesome angling. Inshore, her stealthy trolling motor will have you right on top of the fish before they even notice you. Throw in the latest electronics and tournament-grade tackle, and you have yourself one serious fishing machine!

Hit the shallows for some tasty Redfish and Seatrout, or for a battle of wits and wills against monster Snook and oversized Tarpon. If that is not your style, then head offshore for the chance to land anything from reef favorites like Grouper and Snapper, to big game legends like Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, and even Sailfish!

The most important thing on any trip, though, is having a captain who knows what he is doing. Capt. Jesse is an energetic and experienced angler who focuses on always keeping his trips fun and productive. He welcomes anglers of any age and with any (or no) previous experience, and will tailor his trips accordingly to make sure you get the most out of your time with him.

All trips come with licenses, tackle, bait, and lures, and at the end of your trip, Captain Jesse will clean and fillet all your fish, ready to take home and enjoy.

Explore the vast fishery of Florida’s Atlantic coast with Tighten up Fishing and make some amazing new memories!
