My brother in law and I took out 4 kids for a half day charter. Capt TJ was more than patient, informative and a great teacher. He was quick on his feet and kept the kids fishing - replacing hooks and bait. You can tell fishing is a true passion that he enjoys sharing, which made for an all around... More

Our children and a friend from CT. truly enjoyed their experience with captain TJ. They caught their limit on fish (30) and had a great time doing it. Our daughter even learned fishing tips from Captain TJ. Can't beat the price , Captain was on time , would book with T.J. next time we are in the Florida Keys again.

My family visited the keys in December, 2014. My kids had limited fishing experience. However they caught a ton of tasty fish with TJ. My husband and I enjoyed it as well. The boat was clean, no one got seasick (as we had on similar sized boats). Our day with TJ was the highlight if the vacation.

We have had the pleasure of going fishing with Capt. TJ three times now (spring 2013 and 2014) and have always had the best of experiences. He is exceptional with small children and adults alike. Irregardless of your experience level he will get you on the fish. His knowledge is top notch and isn't afraid to share a few recipes... More

We had a great time with TJ. TJ asked us which side we wanted to do before left the marina. We decided to do the Florida Bay side and it was a good choice. We went out about 10 or 15 miles and we could see the bottom, only 10 ft deep. Very calm day. We caught a lof of... More

We chose to go fishing with Capt. TJ because of the great reviews we read about here and all those photos on his web site. TJ was very good about getting back to you and replying to emails, etc. Our trip was a half day of fun and a full cooler of fish! We caught mackerel on live ballyhoo TJ... More

Went out for a half day of reef/wreck fishing. Had an absolute blast! Filled the box with some almaco jacks, landed some snapper, bonita, cleaned by a few kings, plus lost a battle with shark over who wanted a massive amberjack more. Great captain, great gear, great boat! A day well spent

We booked a private charter with Cap'n TJ so it was just my dad, my husband and I with him. This made for a private experience which was perfect! No fishing lines to untangle, waiting for help, or screaming children: just us, the captain and the sea! He was helpful, offered advice and was great about explaining the reels and... More

Having been fishing in many charters in the past, my expectations were low. My uncle booked this charter for a fee of our family members who were here from all over the world. The day started with a brief weather forecast and iur options for catching fish. We chose the off shore option and headed out to face the 3-5... More
