What's better than tarpon fishing for 4 hours in the Florida Keys? Doing it twice in one day! Whether you want to spend a half day or a full day hunting these "Silver Kings," the highly-rated Captain John has you covered. Hop on the 24' Yellowfin and chase the first biters in the morning, and if that's not enough stick around for more prime-time tarpon fishing at sunset!...Read More
Tarpons have become the most sought-after game fish in the Florida Keys. This mammoth migrates up and down the coast filling up the bridge passes and backcountry waters. Tides, weather, and moon phases play an essential factor in a Tarpon’s behavior, but these kings are always hungry, biting on both live and artificial bait. We recommend going after these fish between March and August.
Your adventure will begin at the dock as Captain John explains what you can expect on your trip. No detail will be left out or question unanswered in order to make your trip exciting, educational, and memorable. Be sure to bring any beverages or snacks you might need, and Captain John will provide everything else.

The son of a commercial fisherman, Captain John spent many days and nights exploring the many wonders that the lower keys has to offer. Raised on Sugarloaf Key, located between Key West and Big Pine Key, Captain John enjoyed exploring these world-class waters inside and out fishing, diving, and exploring the many islands, channels, creeks, and waterways which make up what is known as the back-country.
With his younger brother James, Captain John would search for new places to fish and dive and would always bring home fish or lobster for their mother to cook.
As Captain John grew up, he began to broaden his explorations beyond the backcountry to fishing and diving reefs, another entirely different ecosystem full of different wonders and fascinating creatures.
As a young man, Captain John earned many commercial licenses and spent the majority of his time fishing and diving for lobster.
In the late 80's, Captain John created his own charter company and has shared his knowledge and experience with others ever since.
Captain John is thankful to call the lower keys home, saying, "this diverse Eco-system has and will forever be a magical place to me".
