About
I am a private shark fishing charter service in Naples,Florida. I have been a charter captain for over eleven years. I am great with kids. I can take professionals to novices. I catch sharks from 2 foot long to 10 feet long and other large fish. I have a 21 foot Hewes Redfisher Flats boat, therefore you are very close to the action. I can do a 4 hour or 6 hour trips. I can accommodate up to four people. I catch from 6 inch trout to 10 foot sharks, also Goliath grouper, Sawfish ,Tarpon, Snook, Redfish and other large fish. I also do private Shelling,Site-seeing and Eco-tours as well or a combo of all.

Incredible day!! Captain John is an absolute master at his trade. Knows how to show you a great time (equally great with kids and adults), knows all the great spots to land great fish and sharks, and is great at teaching fishers of all skill levels how to land a big fish. We caught dozens of fish (probably 10-12 species) and a ton of sharks (4-5 species). Big haul of the day was a seven and a half foot, 250-300 pound lemon shark. Will do it again and will recommend to anyone who is looking for the best in fishing in SW FL.

Captain John went above and beyond as our guide. He was very knowledgeable of the areas he took us in. We fished in the backwaters and a few miles out in the ocean. My son and his friend are big fisherman. He took the time to explain to the boys what he was using, why he was using certain bait and assisted them when reeling in their sharks. We had a wonderful day. The boys caught three lemon sharks that were 250+ lbs and at least 6’8inches long. They also caught a drum, tarpon (that jumped off in the end) and some bonnet head sharks. We also had two sharks get away, one was a spinner shark and the other was a bull shark. While we waited for the larger poles to hit Captain John had us fishing for bait. The whole trip was never ending excitement, He even got some dolphins to play in our wake as we drove out to an island to fish. We can’t thank him enough for making our day special. He even cleaned our fish at the end of the trip that we had cooked at The Little Bar for lunch after our tour. If you want a personalized, non stop exciting tour, he is the Shark Chaser to use. Thanks again Captain John for a memorable shark fishing charter!!

Not only did Capt. John get me hooked on a lot of sharks and a massive shark that wore me out he also fulfilled my wish of catching my first tripletail and went above to let me catch more. Look no further if you want to have a great time and have the best chance at a fish of a lifetime. Thank you again Capt. John!

I have been on countless Shark charters and caught a lot of sharks over the past 10 years, Captain John is one of the BEST so far. John knows exactly How to Run a great Charter service. I hope to fish with him in the future. He also led me to the biggest Bull shark I have ever caught Estimated at 500 Lbs. This beast took 1 hour and 50 min to land. Not to mention on that specific trip I caught at least 12 other large Sharks and a few Groupe. I highly recommend John for all your Fishing charter needs Espescially SHARKS!!!!

We fished a full day with Captain John and it was an absolute blast! Right off the bat we hooked up on a 7-foot bull shark that screamed line off the reel! We also hooked two other big fish that broke the line! We lost count of all the fish we boated. If I could give this experience 6 out of 5 stars, I totally would. Call Captain John if you want a great time!

Worth every penny! John was a blast to fish with. We have 16 & 19 yr old boys and had a great time. Mom was a trooper as she cringed every time John as he butchered up another bait and flung it out to sea. Blood, guts, and slime…. But it worked! John knew the spots, the water current, and the type of bait. We were only out there 20 minutes before we heard the first bail start whining with that adrenaline toned tune! There’s nothing like it. What could be on? My son Jack caught a 62 inch Shark right away. Next we lost a couple, but the action was hot and intense right out of the gates. 10 minutes later it was my turn… boom! I knew right away that I had a large shark on. It just kept running and running away with the line. I heard John say several times behind me “that’s a nice one..that’s a big one”…. I just wanted to see it and every time I thought I would, the beast just took off running again. I literally was fatigued from fighting it. With my boys cheering me on, eventually the fish tired out and we were able to bring it to the side of the boat to tag it and release it. It was too big to bring it aboard!
Honestly would have been happy with just a 3 ft shark. But after a lengthy of battle, we finally pulled it up to the boat. 7ft long Lemon Shark. 250 lbs. wow! Moved to another spot and after about 30 minutes of chumming and waiting we heard another bail start whining! My son Adam jumped to it and followed John’s teaching- set the hook, and after several laps around the circumference of the boat battling the shark, he too landed a beautiful black tip shark about the same as his brothers! We are from Wisconsin and have never experienced anything like this before. Muskie fishing is the closest- but still no match. It was the highlight of our vacation easily. To me and my boys, this was as amazing as seeing the Grand Canyon for the first time. So thankful for this experience!!

This was our second trip out with the man, the myth, and the legend, Captain John Brossard. Once again, it was a GREAT day!
Caught everything from Catfish to Black Tips to a large Lemon Shark. Weather was about as perfect as you could hope for. For this trip, my son brought a couple of his friends with him, one of which who had never fished before (&?!and wouldn’t you know it, HE was the one to catch the large Lemon SHARK!) Well, as has been written in so many of the prior 5 STAR reviews, Captain John was very patient, explained everything, and answered all questions asked. Add in his carbonated personality, and you have yourself the perfect vibe for a day of “Shark Chasing “. Make your decision easy, read a few of his reviews, and then contact Captain John Brossard.
You’ll be happy that you did!

This charter with Captain John was by the best I've ever been on! I've lived in several parts of Florida and been on a handful of charters, we even fish on the gulf coast regularly and we have never ever had a fishing adventure like Captain John took us on! We caught lots of shark, grouper and even went to another spot to see some dolphins which was the three things I told him my goal was for the day and he really made it happen! He was very knowledgeable, welcoming, and a great laid back guide. I felt like I was fishing with an avid fisherman buddy instead of a teacher trying to take control as many charters are. It far exceeded my expectations and was the best birthday gift my husband could've gotten me. I never even write reviews on things and I was genuinely compelled to write one about this charter since we found out about it from Trip Advisor. He even got our trip photos published in a fishing magazine which was SO cool! We cant wait to take our son back out on the water with him soon! We will be returning to his charter for years to come, that's for sure.

I took my son-in-law and two of his boys (5&7) out with Capt. John. It was such a fabulous experience! John was so helpful and knowledgeable, it made the trip nothing but stupid fun. We caught a 70 pound shark and pulled it on board for measuring and tagging. The boys were mesmerized and amazed, so was Dad and Grampa! Capt. John is cheerful and professional, a joy.
