    My wife and I had a great day on the water with James. He was personable and informative (marine science degree I believe).He obviously knows his way around the Ft Myers waters. Put us on snook, redfish, trout, and even some grouper and mackerel. He even got my wife to fish and we got to watch her fight a big red. Love his preference to catch and release.Highly recommend. Tons of fun. Thanks James

    Our family had a great time with Captain Scott! His first mate Jimmy was so enthusiastic and really wanted to help us all catch big fish. My young adult kids rated the experience an 11 out of 10. Overall we caught 4 King Mackerals (and a few sharks that we threw back). Scott recommended a local restaurant (The Salty Pelican) that would prepare our catch, so we enjoyed a delicious lunch after our morning on the boat.

    "Absolutely Incredible Experience with Captain Jonny's Inshore Fishing! From the moment we set sail with Captain Jonny, we knew we were in for an unforgettable day. His knowledge of the waters and expertise in fishing techniques were unparalleled, ensuring we were always in the best spots. The highlights of our trip were catching many impressive Jack and Baracuda. Each catch was a thrilling experience, thanks to Captain Jonny's guidance and encouragement. Not only did Captain Jonny make sure we had a successful fishing trip, but he also educated us about the local marine life and conservation efforts, which added so much value to our adventure. The boat was comfortable and well-equipped, making our experience both enjoyable and safe. Captain Jonny's passion for fishing and dedication to providing the best possible experience for his guests shines through in every aspect of the trip. We left with not just many fish caught, but also with great memories that will last a lifetime. For anyone looking to experience the best inshore fishing, look no further than Captain Jonny's Inshore Fishing. It's more than just a fishing trip; it's an adventure that you'll never forget.
