My fiancé and I came down for an impromptu long weekend. We gave Capt TJ a call too see if he had availability. Unfortunately, his boats were undergoing annual maintenance. Capt TJ was quick to refer us to three of his fellow boat captains who he trusted to take care of us. That speaks to his character.

We booked our family fishing trip (2 adults + 2 teens) with Captain TJ & Island Lure Charters based on the great reviews. What a great day! We caught several snapper and even a king mackerel. The boat was quite clean and comfortable. TJ is very personable and knowledgeable. He even cleaned our fish afterwards. If you're looking for a fun fishing excursion, you can't go wrong with TJ!

I booked TJ with Island Lure charters, because of all the great reviews. And today did not disappoint!. I went with my husband and 18 and 22-year-old children and we had a blast! He asked us what we wanted to fish for and we told him we wanted to catch fish fast that we were good to eat and by golly did we ever! We got 24 fish in nothing flat and that was even throwing back some of the small ones! He filleted and cleaned them all and I can’t wait to have a great dinner tonight tomorrow and Sunday night! If you are looking for a fun day in the Keys, I totally recommend booking with TJ and Island Lure charters None of us had ever really fished. before so he is great and patient to work with all types of experience!

My family has been coming down to the keys for 5 years now and every year we have gone on a trip with Captain T.J. He really knows his fishing! He keeps a very nice and clean boat making the experience even more enjoyable. Every aspect of our trips have been outstanding. Plenty of rod bending action at the spots the Captain has found! If you're looking for the best charter in the keys...look no further than Island Lure Charters!

I had a second trip with Captain TJ in Marathon Key, and it was incredible!! Great weather and a spotless boat were fantastic, but the best part was the captain himself. TJ makes the experience personable, fun, and has an incredible knowledge of how to catch yellowtail and other Florida sport fish!! Not only was action and the size of the fish great, but we got our limit for one of the most gourmet fish available. If you like to eat your catch and go for a variety of fish, instead of sitting on a boat for hours and hours trolling for a Moby Dick who never comes, TJ is the best there is. I would never go with any other Captain in the Keys, especially since this was my second incredible experience. The fish might be gone, but the memories are forever!!
