We are a family of 5 that decided we wanted to try and do a fishing trip while in Marathon over the holidays. We've done the deep-sea fishing in Mexico before and it was a complete bust so we weren't exactly sure what this would bring. I called Tarpon Creek Marina and was able to secure a trip for the...

Captain Mike was very entertaining, knowledgeable, and above all patient! He was very accommodating as there were 2 females (including an 11 year old) who 1/2 way through the day, and in the middle of fishing, made a long trek back to the marina for a much-needed bathroom break! He entertained the 11 year old we brought with us (including... More

Great fishing trip . Captain Bob was knowledgeable and he and his crew was amazing . I would reccommend this charter to anyone looking for a great time . Captain Bob has been fishing Marathon for several decades and knows the waters.

Our group of 4 arrived at Marathon with rain and high winds for the entire weekend. Capt. Mike agreed to take us out, even though conditions were not the greatest, we still wanted to fish. He took us to some of his great spots and put us on some fish, even with nasty weather. We decided to book a second... More

We booked a fishing trip with Jeni-Lyn several months in advance. I called them several times before the trip for various reasons. The one time I called to ask about negative reviews it obviously irritated him. I shrugged it off and was looking forward to the fishing trip. We traveled to Marathon. The evening before we were to fish I... More

I had a trip booked with Mike for a Monday. He called the day before to put it off due to winds and seas (you could see the chop on the water from shore). We rescheduled for the last day of our trip but the winds didn't cooperate. Mike also called the day before to cancel that one. I think... More

My group of 4 experienced anglers has been visiting/fishing the keys each year for ten years. Fished with Capt. Mike on the Jeni-Lyn for the first time this week. He is tops. Very accommodating in that he facilitated the type of fishing my group sought i.e. actively casting to top-feeding fish. We caught fish non-stop. Multiple species. Had multiple triple... More
