Captain John Gauntt has been fishing the backcountry and nearshore waters of Southwest Florida for over 20 years. With his expert knowledge spanning everywhere from the 10,000 Islands to Boca Grande, you’re sure to catch some impressive fish – and the memories of a lifetime, too!

Capt. John prides himself on offering any trip you could dream of, from full-on fishing adventures packed with angling action, to family–friendly shelling excursions, to nightly jaunts that target some seriously impressive marine life. Your trip can be completely customized to suit your wants and needs, so let him know what you want to do – you can combine all of the above, if you want!

When it comes to the fishing on offer, you’ll have the choice of cruising the seriously shallow flats and backcountry for Permit, Tarpon, Snook, and more, or heading up to 9 miles out to nearshore waters to hook huge Redfish, Cobia, and other world-famous species. Want to come face-to-gills with some fish that will give you serious bragging rights? Join Capt. John on a night adventure to hook a variety of fierce Shark species!

No matter what you choose to do, your adventure will take place on board your captain’s 23’ Robalo bay boat, built to comfortably transport up to 6 guests to the hotspots. On board, you’ll find top-of-the-line navigational gear, life jackets for all ages, and a full toilet. There’s even a wireless trolling motor, so you won’t spook the fish when cruising shallow waters!

Each trip includes top-notch rods and reels, bait, tackle, and a fishing license. Shelling gear will also be provided when needed. Come aboard Day 5 Charters, where you’ll experience an incredible Floridian fishing adventure like no other!

"As soon as I was old enough to hold a rod, I was fishing. I moved to Fort Myers Beach in 2001 and haven’t stopped fishing the Gulf since then! In 2015 my friends and family said I should quit my day job and become a charter captain…so I did!" Capt. John's best part of his job is simple: doing his favorite thing in the world! He's a lifelong fisherman who loves nothing more than being on the water, spending time with guests of all ages and angling abilities, and reeling in plenty of world-famous species. As well as plenty of first-hand experience under his belt, he's also a certified regional forecast guide for Saltstrong, where he works on fishing reports – so he knows exactly where the fish are, and when they'll be there!
