Fort Myers Fishing Guide Captain Bill Curtis

Please see the rates below for offshore charter fishing out of  the 56' Ocean Yacht "Cracker Jack". For a serious true offshore bottom fishing experience we recommend the 8 or 10 hour trips. Quite simply stated the longer the trip the farther we can go, the deeper the water, and the bigger the fish. Of course 5-6 hour trips can be fun as well with lots of action with smaller fish and the possibility of a grouper or 2 for dinner. They are typically great family trips. I offer charters for 1-6 passengers and the price is the same as you are reserving the entire boat. Reservations are required, but I will do my best to accommodate last minute requests. Children over the age of 6 are welcome. Payment  accepted is cash, or the credit cards shown below.  Tips are greatly appreciated, as they make up a significant amount of the crews take home pay. If you are pleased with the crews effort on your trip 15-20% is customary. Thanks!

Call Captain Bill Curtis at (239) 229-6904, with any questions or to make a reservation.
