Absolutely Epic, is the only way to describe this trip. I was at a boat show in Tampa Fl., and struck up a conversation with a fellow angler. I told him I was headed to the keys to do some fishing to load the freezer. he quickly suggested I get in contact with captain Mike. I sent an email as soon as I returned home. Later that evening Captain Mike got in contact with me, the date was set. The day before, Captain Mike contacted me and my Buddy to confirm the number of fisherman, and what we wanted to fish for. I was a bit greedy, not expecting he would come through on each species I listed! I told him we wanted Big Black Grouper, Yellowtail snapper, and a trophy Mutton snapper....LOL! I wouldn't be laughing for long. Twenty minutes into the first stop, and it was game time! First big Black grouper of the day came over the side, I was ecstatic! Ten minutes later, my buddy was on, same result, then one more for good measure, so we all three had a keeper in the box! Captain Mike Chuckled, and asked if we were ready for the yellowtail bite? We were ready, so we thought. These Yellowtail looked like something out of Jurassic Park! We had never seen Yellowtail snapper this size, other than in magazines. I would say we wore them out, but it was the other way around. Once we had enough yellowtails in the box, Captain Mike said we were headed to the Mutton Spot. I figured one trophy Mutton, and I would be a happy fisherman. We not only caught one trophy Mutton, but four! These bruisers were so big, that we tapped out, and told captain Mike we had had enough! LOL!! BEST TRIP OF MY ENTIRE LIFE! If you want to experience and angling adventure like me, and my friends, book Captain Mike!! He is without a doubt, THE MAN TO GET THE JOB DONE!

Highly recommend booking with these guys! They were so personable with top notch experience! They took us to a spot where no other boats were and we caught a lot of fish! Felt like my husband and I were on a private fishing trip with the locals! Would fish with only them when we return.

Two days fishing with Capn Mike and one with Capn Bob with week and they put us on the fish every day! We had three generations of fisherpersons on the water and the Jeni Lynn captains took care of us. Great fishermen and great people. Looking forward to our next trip and more great fishing!

I highly recommend Jeni-Lyn II. Lucky for me someone cancelled and I was able to book an awesome fishing trip. We caught many yellowtail but the highlight of the day was the huge King fish I reeled in. Captain Bob and mate Bob are very experienced fishermen. I will be fishing with them my next visit to Marathon.
