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

We booked with Capt. TJ based on the reviews as well as local recommendations. We had four kids with us, ages 4 to 13 and where looking for a half day charter where the kids could have a hands on fishing experience. Capt TJ had the most reasonable price and it was definitely worth it. The boat was spacious and... More

We came to Florida Keys for our first time and booked TJ for two days. What a great decision that was. We had a blast catching Dolphin fish and tuna. We caught so many nice fish and that's all because we had an awesome guide who knew what he was doing! We highly recommend spending the money to hire a... More

Captain T J was knowledgable, helpful and pleasant. He got the fish to bite. What more can you ask for? We caught our limit of yellowtail snapper. .

My family and I were looking to take a "fishing trip" while on vacation in Marathon. Decided to book TJ because of his fair rates and positive reviews. He did a great job getting us on fish and explaining how to properly fish for snapper. TJ showed great patients with some of our less experienced anglers and did a great... More

TJ did a great job. We had a 12 year old as well as a 17 and 19 year old. All had a great time.....now that is saying a lot. TJ took care of everything and we caught plenty of fish to keep all interested. Will definitely go with him again.....

We went on our second charter with Capt.T.J. and it was just as wonderful as our 1st time out with him. We had to fish the Bay due to wind and water chop, but we caught plenty of fish. T.J. found several good fishing spots that weren't too rough for us. We had a nice catch of a variety of... More

This was my second trip with TJ, and am already planning a trip for next year. 3 friends and I caught yellowtail, mutton snapper and grouper on the reef, although the sharks were well fed as they a stole a few of our fish. We saw at least a 7 footer as it came after a yellowtail that a friend... More

First time out with Capt. TJ. We had a great trip. Capt TJ is very knowledgeable & friendly...When the fishing got slow, TJ got busy...he was always hunting more fish to make our trip successful. His boat is in good shape & the fishing was good. I'd definitely recommend Capt TJ if you're going to fish out of Marathon.
