Blind Date Charters

There’s something for everyone and the waters surrounding Fort Myers give ample opportunities to try your luck with all kinds of fish. Capt. Tom Katz will help you land your next trophy, or he will take you on gorgeous sight-seeing tours where you might encounter dolphins or manatees. 

You’ll join the captain on his 2017 Sportsman 312 central console. The boat is 32’ long and there’s ample room for up to 6 passengers. Two 300 HP Yamaha engines will help you slice the waves effortlessly. Additionally, the vessel is fitted with Simrad fishfinding equipment.

Offered trips cover various fishing locations, allowing you to choose from nearshore, and offshore fishing grounds. If you want to try your hand at bottom fishing, the crew will also gladly take you local reefs and wrecks. With such a diverse choice of locations, you’ll be able to target the likes of Kingfish, Wahoo, and Red Snapper, just to name a few.

The crew will provide you with the fishing gear, lures, and bait. You get bottled water on board, but you are responsible for your snacks. You get to keep your catch fresh in an ice-box provided onboard. Families with children are welcome and for passengers’ convenience, an onboard toilet is available.

Captain Tom has been fishing the Gulf waters of Florida his whole life. His dream came true when he became a charter captain and started showing others the beauty that Southwest Florida offers. For him, watching people reel in fish, relaxing on the boat, and creating memories that will last a lifetime is the best part of his job!

Bottom fishing 60 miles off the coast of Sanibel for some of the first American Red Snapper (ARS) of the 2022 season aboard the “Blind Date”. The federal for-hire season began on June 1 and runs until August 19. @fishrulesapp notes important information on some updated rules “The DESCEND Act requires anglers to have a venting tool or descending device rigged and ready to use when fishing for reef fish species in Gulf of Mexico federal waters.”
