Captain TJ/Island Lure Charters was a great choice. Caught a boatload of fish in 2 different areas. We all had a great time. Fish on after fish on whether they were keepers or not were abundant. Will definitely look him up again if we ever go back. Marathon was beautiful!!

My son saved for a fishing trip while in the Keys, and after researching the area and reading reviews he decided to book the trip with Captain TJ of Island Lure Charters. And, Captain TJ was the perfect choice. He was professional, personable and extremely knowledgeable. We had an awesome day of fishing and caught several species but the prize... More

We had a very nice experience with TJ's charter. He strives to tailer the trip you want to have and works hard to give you good fishing. I would definitely be comfortable with a family outing on his boat.

I've fished a lot in the Keys and specifically in Marathon and there is no one better to fish with than Capt. TJ. A great Capt. makes or breaks the trip. TJ is awesome because he's knowledgeable, considerate, patient and expert. He makes the process easy and fun and our party is always free to kick back and just enjoy... More

If you are a serious fisherman looking for an offshore trip, this is it. If you have rarely fished and are just looking for an awesome excursion in the middle Keys, this is it. Great Captain, great rates, great experience. Highly recommended. For the first time since having our two boys, my landlocked wife and I got the chance to... More

I brought my four daughters and wife out with TJ yesterday. It was clear from the start that our success and fun was his main concern. He gave us many options and made sure we were on fish. After we were done, my kids told me they really liked how he always made them feel like they were doing well.... More

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.
