WOW what a great day on the water!!! I have never fished before because I always assumed I would be sitting on the water for hours and MAYBE catch a fish or two. Captain TJ asked us ahead of time what our goal would be for the day and he exceeded every expectation we had ever had. We caught 26... More

I don't think I could have picked a better Capt to take us fishing. Right from the start he was professional and friendly, he keeps his boat immaculate and asks that we do the same while we are out on the water, I was very impressed by this. It was just my boys and I, they are 11 and 13... More

What a breath of fresh air! We arrived early that morning to find Captain TJ smiling and ready to take us out fishing four the day. Having lived and fished in the keys for many years previously, I was pleasantly surprised what a "tight ship" and outfit Island Lure Charters had become. First of all, the boat was well maintained,... More

Capt. TJ took my family and I (wife, 10 & 8 year olds) on a halfway reef & wreck trip. We caught a lot of fish and enjoyed the trip very much!! Capt. TJ is a true professional and took care of us as if he'd known us for years. We'd highly recommend him if you're looking to catch fish... More

We visit the Keys as often as we can since my son and I love to fish. This was our first time using Island Lure charters and we were very happy. TJ was awesome. We went on a reef 1/2 day trip and limited out on Mangrove Snapper. My wife also enjoyed the trip! We also caught 2 nurse sharks... More

Our family took a 6hour trip with captain TJ. All I can say is class act. Boat was spotless, and comfortable. We have a 5 and 7year old(boys). We spent the first stop loading up on mangroves, which were perfect for the boys(they caught them all). After catching our limit we headed out to catch some yellow tail. We took... More

GREAT CHARTER; couldn't have asked for a better day! Capt TJ was at the dock and ready to go as soon as we showed up. We asked to run to the humps in search for blackfin tuna. Even though the seas were a little rough the boat handled it perfectly. Along the way out we found some debris and picked... More

My family of six had a wonderful experience fishing in the Florida Keys with Island Lure Charters. From the moment we picked up the phone, Captain TJ was exceptional. He answered all of questions and was ready to go as soon as we arrived. The entire trip was spent catching fish...We've been enjoying our mangrove snapper and yellow tail ever... More

We have fished with TJ several times over the years and just had another great trip with him fishing the reefs and wrecks around Marathon. We limited out on mangrove snappers in no time and caught many other species. The kids (8 and 10) had a fantastic time and haven't stopped talking about how great TJ and fishing in marathon... More

Have been with Capt TJ several times over the years and he has always done a great job, usually the highlight of our week in the keys. This year we limited out on Mangrove Snappers and went out a bit deeper and caught a beautiful Mutton Snapper about twenty lbs. An example of how much the youngsters enjoy the trip,... More
