Jurassic Park Fishing Charters

Capt. John Shanley Delray Beach, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Who knew that freshwater fishing could be as fun as deep sea fishing? On Jurassic Park Charters, Capt. John will set you up to get fish after fish. The Ida Lake Chain is located only two miles from the beach, so you have the option to have some beach time after your fishing trip! Capt. John will even take you to a private lake, waters that experience very low fishing pressure
compared to their public water counterparts.

The Lake Ida chain of lakes offers some of the best, most convenient bass fishing in South Florida. There are largemouth bass up to 10 pounds, big peacock bass, sunshine bass, bluegills, Mayan cichlids and other exotics. If you have never been fishing, it’s ok! Capt. John Shanley will share expertise with your group and have you fishing like a pro in no time.

Hop on board Capt. John’s 17’ Carolina skiff boat, which can comfortably fit up to 3 guests. This vessel provides you with all the equipment you need including a GPS, a fishfinder, and a live bait tank. Bring your friends or family along and enjoy the whole day with them while you hook up on exotic trophy fish that can’t be caught anywhere else in the country!

Capt. John will use his experience to help you find and hook your next catch. You also have the option to bring any snacks or drinks that you will need on board. It is recommended to bring sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses with you to protect you from the Florida sun. Your fishing equipment will be completely provided by Capt. John, but you are more than welcome to bring your own.

You can expect to encounter species such as Clown Knifefish, Peacock Bass,
Snakeheads, Largemouth bass, and many more freshwater gamefish. You will mainly use light tackle bait but if you want the chance to fly fish kindly ask Capt. John and he will have you set up before you know it!

Capt. John makes his fishing environment relaxing and enjoyable. Hop on Lake Ida with Capt. John and Jurassic Park Fishing and get a full day of action! You can expect to see exotic species and once you get your catch you can take a picture and show it off to the rest of the fishing community. This is an exciting charter that will give you a memorable experience book your next fishing trip with Captain John today!
