Captain J Fishing Charters offers half day, 3/4 day, and full day fishing charters launching from Islamorada and Tavernier in the upper Florida Keys. Backcountry and flats fishing charters are provided by Captain Dave Perkins on his 17′ Actioncraft Flats Boat. We also can provide private boat charters for fishing tournaments and excursions. Message us for more details.
We offer two boat options for our charter fishing trips: Lost Again, a 37 ft. center console SeaVee that launches out of Tavernier and the Unleashed a fully loaded 55 ft. Viking that launches out of the Postcard Inn Marina in Islamorada. The SeaVee has a maximum capacity of 4 passengers, and the 55 ft. Viking accommodates 6 passengers.
Both of our charter boats will fish the reef, inshore and offshore waters of the Florida Keys from Key Largo to Marathon. Depending on the time of year, weather and seas, we will use some of the following techniques to target the available species: live bait fishing, kite fishing, drift fishing, deep dropping (manual or electric reels) slow trolling live baits, high speed trolling for wahoo, anchoring for bottom fish, trolling for wahoo, tuna, sailfish and mahi-mahi.
Our fishing charters include nearly everything you need for your day of fishing. We supply all licenses, fishing tackle, bait, water and ice. Our captains will clean and package your fish for you to take home. Bring your own food, drinks, protective clothing, sunglasses, hat, camera, and sunscreen.
